PASTOR KEITH INVITES ALL TO JOIN HIM AT THIS GLORIOUS EVENT!
From our conference dean, Pastor Bill Knott:
The Broward-Bahamas Conference will join with the Miami-Dade Conference in a joint celebration of the Lutheran Reformation on Saturday, OCTOBER 24th at 4:00 PM in Christ Lutheran Church, Oakland Park. The church is located at 1955 E Oakland Park Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale with convenient access to I-95 and Federal Highway.
The Rev. Kevin Strickland will be preaching and presiding for this celebration worship service. Rev. Strickland serves as the Assistant to the Presiding Bishop / Executive for Worship of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
The Rev. Frank Kopania, EKD will be bring special greetings and commentary from the Lutheran Church of Germany as we all prepare for the 2017 celebration of 500 years of a constantly re-forming Church. It was on October 31, 1517, that Luther famously nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle church in Wittenberg, outlining his thoughts on how the Catholic Church in Europe should be reformed. Luther's public display of his views is considered the beginning of the Reformation.
David C. Morse, Dean, Fort Lauderdale AGO, will serve as organist for this exciting event.
Music and worship leadership will be provided by clergy, choirs, and lay people from both conferences. All are welcome to participate.
Musicians will gather for a joint rehearsal on Saturday at 2:00 PM to prepare for the 4:00 PM service. Music and liturgy will be provided beforehand for individual and group rehearsals.
Members and friends of our Lutheran congregations are invited to join in the festive worship celebration and the “Brats and Brew” German Fellowship that follows.
Thank-you all for your partnership in mission and ministry.
