What’s the Big Deal about the Reformation?

Why should we care about an event that happened five hundred years ago in a land far away? This meditation will consider the importance of the Reformation and how understanding it in the context of church history gives us hope for the future.

Living the Reformation Today

While we must honor what God has done in the past, God calls us to serve Him today. This meditation will address what it means to be a light in the world as we learn from the Reformation how to follow Jesus in our own context.

The Importance of Luther

In 2017, we are celebrating something that Martin Luther did because Luther is a key figure of the Protestant Reformation. This meditation will consider the importance of Luther and why his ideas continue to be valuable to the church.

Derek Thomas
7:30 p.m. 8:00 p.m.

Finding Peace with God

The times may change, but the core question asked during the Reformation is the same one asked today: How can I find peace with God? This meditation will address the peace we find when we realize that justification is by faith alone and how it is a central concern of our day.

Sinclair Ferguson
8:00 p.m. 8:30 p.m.

What Is the Gospel?

The Reformation was born as people sought to recover the biblical gospel, and in our own day there is a desperate need for men and women to return to the gospel found in Scripture. This meditation will define the gospel and exhort us to stand fast for its truth.
