This is a special week for Lutheran churches and schools all around the world as we celebrate Martin Luther and the reformation of the Christian church over 500 years ago. We want our students to know our rich Lutheran heritage founded on the ideals of “Grace Alone”, “Faith Alone”, “Christ Alone”, “Scripture Alone”, “To the Glory of God Alone”.
Throughout the month of October, we sing Luther’s most well-known hymn in Chapel, “A Mighty Fortress”, based on Psalm 46. Our 6th graders have their annual Martin Luther competition, culminating in the winner “nailing” Luther’s 95 Theses to a church door, as Luther did on Oct. 31, 1517. Dr. Heide shares his travel photos from his many trips to Germany and the important sites from Luther’s life.
It’s a month-long celebration for the blessings of having God’s Word to learn more about His amazing Grace and the man who started a revolution of teaching everyone how much they are loved by God the Father and freely forgiven through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
