October 30 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Presbyterians celebrate the tradition that grounds their faith on Reformation Sunday. It is always the last Sunday in October, marking the occasion in 1517 when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg. It challenged the Church’s practice of indulgences that were issued by Pope Leo X. Simply stated, by paying a certain amount of money toward the construction of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, one could receive assurance from the Pope that the sins of a loved one in purgatory were expunged. Luther’s argument against this became a primary catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.
God’s Word says that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus and not by our own efforts or works (Ephesians 2:8-9). Grace Alone. Faith Alone.
