500th Anniversary of the Reformation

This Sunday marks the 500th anniversary of Reformation Sunday, remembering Martin Luther’s break with the Catholic Church of his day, and his posting of the “95 Theses” on the doors of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.
Many Protestant churches have continued to branch off from Luther’s first branch, and will remember that historic event in worship this weekend.
All are invited to worship with us at Hope United Methodist Church on Main St in Belchertown at 10 am, as we share in a Luther Hymn Festival: “Through the Christian Year with Martin Luther.” Many hymns written by Martin Luther will be sung by soloists, choir, and congregation. Luther himself said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world!”
As we observe Reformation Sunday in a world torn and divided, it is with the prayer that we may continue to move towards unity and community, both in the church and in the world.
Join us this Sunday, or any Sunday at 10 am, at Hope United Methodist Church.
“Guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit, our mission is to know, experience, and share God’s love as shown to us in Jesus Christ.”
