Join us in our Sunday worship as we remember the day Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses on the Church door in Wittenberg, Germany, & unleashed a revolution in the Church that changed the course of the western world. Luther professed the free & gratuitous remission of sin by faith in Jesus Christ.
A mighty fortress is our God,
A trusty shield & weapon;
He helps us free from ev'ry need
That hath us now o'ertaken.
The old evil foe Now means deadly woe;
Deep guile & great might
Are his dread arms in fight;
On earth is not his equal. LSB 656:1
