500 YEARS OF REFORMATION: October 31, 1517 was the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. 500 years have passed and it is time to commemorate and celebrate our Lutheran heritage. There are a number of events planned. The Western Suffolk Conference is planning A Reformation Hymn Sing Celebration on Sunday October 1, 7:30pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lindenhurst. Donald Meinicke, the organist, cantor at Holy Trinity in Manhattan will be sharing his insights and history about the hymns and get us all singing with enthusiasm. This is a great opportunity to gather with other Lutherans and sing some of our favorite hymns and learn a little something in the process. Mark your calendar and save the date.
