500th Reformation Anniversary

430_Reform500LogoWe are gearing up for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation as we celebrate the focus Martin Luther gave to the power of God’s Word. On October 31, 1517 Luther posted his 95 Theses and it was a day that changed the world.

The churches in the greater Triangle area will celebrate this occasion hosting Change the World: One Life at a Time

On Sunday, November 5, 2017 Dorton Arena on the NC State Fairgrounds will be filled with songs of praise to our Lord. Following a moving time of worship with thousands of voices we will move to serve our neighbors. A health and dental clinic is planned for the afternoon and early evening as well as an art show and music festival.

The main speaker will be renowned international speaker Rev. Dr. Gregory P. Seltz who hosts the longest running Christian Radio program in the world, The Lutheran Hour. Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) is a Christian outreach ministry supporting churches worldwide. LHM produces Christian radio and TV programming for broadcast, as well as Internet and print communications, dramas, music, and outreach materials, to reach the unchurched in more than 30 countries.

You won’t want to miss this celebration service and gathering as we bring together churches across the region to praise God in one voice saying “It’s Still All About Jesus!”

Art Show

Art has shaped society and motivated people for centuries. When Rev. Martin Luther created his small catechism he made sure it was printed with art that demonstrated and taught people about God’s will for their lives. To encourage the arts and continue in the spirit of the Reformation, students from across the region are asked to submit their artwork for display at Dorton Arena. All of the submitted artwork will be displayed behind the main stage on the floor of Dorton Arena. Parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors can come to visit the pieces of art that have been entered for the art show. The submission form and more info is available here.

Music Festival

Music is central to the worship of God and the day at Dorton will be filled with great music. Music during worship and during the day will be representative of the different forms of music that are lifted up to God each week in congregations across our region. Check out this flyer to be part of Festival Chorus or Handbell Choir – and feel free to share. All youth and adult singers and ringers are invited to join us for the event.
