500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REFORMATION - During the Sundays of October, we will be experiencing some variation in both the order and language of our worship. In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, our worship will be structured by the Evangelical Lutheran Hymnal, ©1908, an early English hymnal, used by the late Pr. G.C. “Doc” Heffelfinger, Pr. Tim’s Pastor as a young boy. In remembering the historical worship that nurtured our ancestors, we pray that both our present and future worship with be enriched and our horizons broadened with insight and knowledge of God’s mighty hand at work in His people over the course of time.
