Lunch will feature soup, sandwiches and cookies, with fun and games directly afterwards. Help us welcome Rev. Dick and Jan Allen to our church and our community.
Worship, Bratwurst, Martin Luther and the Reformation
The First Lutheran Church of Fairfield
The First Lutheran Church of Fairfield along with the First Augustana Lutheran Church in Lockridge will kick off the first event of its Reformation 500 Celebration at 10 a.m. Feb. 26 at the First Lutheran Church. The change in worship time is for that Sunday only. A dialog sermon is planned, and Rev. Gloria Friedrich and Rev. Greg Friedrich will preside over the service.
Following the service, congregants will gather in the lower level for a German meal of bratwursts, hot dogs, German Potato Salad and sauerkraut. A sign up sheet will be available for those who would like to bring either a salad or desert. Although the dish or dessert doesn’t have to be German, but German chocolate cake is pretty tasty.
After lunch, attendees will enjoy a DVD of Luther and the Reformation. This DVD was a gift to all ELCA congregations from Rick Steves, who is the travel editor for Public Television and a member of the ELCA.
Please set this time aside to share worship, food, fellowship and the viewing of Luther and the Reformation. Dankeschoen.
