Open to all, Immanuel Lutheran Church will host a Reformation Hymn Fest to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In 1517, an Augustinian monk, named Martin Luther, nailed 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg church announcing his willingness to discuss the statements contained therein with representatives of the Roman church. Thus began the Reformation.
Several Colorado Springs organists will lead the gathering in historic hymns from the pen of Martin Luther. The audience will have the opportunity to sing these hymns by Luther. Other special music will be provided by Parish House Baroque. The Hymn Fest will take place in Immanuel’s sanctuary, at 846 E. Pikes Peak Ave, starting at 2 pm. Parking is available in the back off the alley and off Prospect Street.
Everyone is also invited to attend a FREE Oktoberfest dinner in the Organ Gym complete with brats, hotdogs, German side dishes, and beer (Root Beer that is!), following the Hymn Fest from 4:00 – 6:00 P.M.. Entertainment will be provided by Jim Calm on the Joel Kremer Theatre Organ, the largest theatre pipe organ in Colorado. Entrance in the alley.
A freewill offering will be gratefully accepted at both events. To help us plan, please RSVP by calling 719-635-0150.
