2017 is a big year for Martin Luther! It marks the 500th anniversary the Lutheran Reformation, which changed the church world-wide. In 1517 Martin Luther wrote his 95 debated ideas and posted them on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. That posting day was October 31, which we now celebrate as Reformation Day in the Lutheran Church.
Many events throughout the year will commemorate Luther, his life and his works, including fall tours and classes at Zion, open to all ages.
