Kansas District Reformation 500 
Celebrations by Circuit
Concordia University is planning a year of exciting activities and events to celebrate the 500th Reformation Anniversary. Each month will feature at least one event related to the Reformation. All members and congregations of the Kansas District are invited to attend any or all of these free activities, which will include recitals, lectures, parties, dramas, and exhibits.

 A full schedule of events, which will begin on October 24, 2016, may be found on the website, reformation.cune.edu

The year wraps up with a final celebratory worship service at the campus Walz Arena on October 29, 2017.  Put that on your calendars now!

Grace alone. Faith alone. Scripture alone. These words are the heart of the Reformation message, salvation through Jesus Christ, the one and only Savior of the world. That’s our reason to celebrate.

Please plan to celebrate this 500th Reformation Anniversary with us at Concordia. We welcome you to our campus to join in the festivities!

A Man Named Martin: 3-Part Series 

A Man Named Martin, a three part series about the Reformation, presented by The Lutheran Hour, is available for viewing on the Concordia University, Nebraska 500th Reformation Celebration website at https://reformation.cune.edu/video/.  Parts 1 and 2 (8 videos plus two bonus videos on Life in a Monastery and Katie Luther ) are now available. Part 3, The Movement, will become available in July 2017.
Part 1: The Man In this five-session Bible study, Luther’s life and times are examined through the lens of history, religion and theology. Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz, Speaker for The Lutheran Hour, as well as numerous scholars, add their expertise and perspective to render an illuminating portrait of the life of this extraordinary human being.

     Part 2: The Moment This three-session Bible study examines the errant teachings and wayward traditions of the Late Medieval Church that eventually sparked the Protestant Reformation, a theological overhaul set in motion most notably by Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg.
