October is the month in which Protestants around the world observe Reformation Day. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther, a German Augustinian monk and professor at the University of Wittenberg nailed his famous Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the castle church. Seeking to reform the church of his day regarding the improper use of indulgences (church granted remission of sins for works done by a person), Luther birthed a movement which today numbers over 450 million Christians who call themselves Protestants.
Lifting high the Holy Word of God, we believe and celebrate its divine inspiration in all parts and joyfully submit to it as the only infallible authority in all matters of life and faith. Day by day, week by week, we choose to stand on the Word alone, grace alone, and faith alone. Throughout the years Elmwood has diligently sought to be a church that stands on the Word of God and preaches the Word of God. As people of the Word we need to continually be people in the Word. Take a good look inside the newsletter at all the wonderful variety of opportunities to do that here at Elmwood. I encourage you to take every opportunity you can to be with fellow saints sitting together reading and studying the amazing gift from your Heavenly Father, the holy Word of God.
Richest Blessings in Christ Jesus our Lord,
We would love to have more lectors for reading the
Scriptures on Sunday morning.
Be bold, you can do it!
