You are invited to join us in Germany for the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation. This enriching tour of Germany will grow in your understanding of the heritage that is ours through the work of Martin Luther and the Reformers of the 16th century.
Pastor John & Meg Sattler invite you to experience the culture and the history of Germany today while also going back in time to the very beginnings of the Lutheran Reformation as Martin Luther ignited the fire that restored the church to its foundation in the words of Scripture. It all started in October 1517 and you will be there 500 years later to celebrate one of the most significant events in all human history. Together, we will be experiencing contemporary German culture in Berlin & Munich, as well as the historical Lutheran Reformation sites including Wittenberg, Wartburg Castle, & Luther’s birth place.
