Area Reformation Festival

Come join us to celebrate the festival of the Reformation and once again rejoice that we have the truth of God’s word as the unchangeable bedrock of our saving faith.  With the sure word of God as our foundation, we have perfect confidence in the truth of our Lord and the truth of our own salvation by Jesus Christ alone!

Our worship service will begin at 4pm Central Time at Grace Lutheran in Powers, MI.  Following the service there will be fellowship time with a potluck meal.  Please bring a cold dish to share.
