Reformation 500 Years!!!

Sunday, October 29 is Reformation Sunday. It will mark 500 years since Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses on the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany. Worship will be at 10:39 followed by a potluck at noon. After the potluck we will watch a video of travel guru (and Lutheran) Rick Steves on Luther's Germany titled, "Luther and the Reformation". We will do the potluck and video with Missio Dei Community who worships Sunday afternoons in our sanctuary. Bring a main dish and salad or desert. Place settings (Reformation placemats!) will be provided as will beverages. 


To the family of Don Walters, father of Barb Harris and grandfather of Berkley. Don died October 20 in Sun City West, AZ

Student of the Month - Kayla Pagel

Kayla PagelWhat memories do you have from University Lutheran from before college?
University Lutheran was my first church. Pastor Gary baptized me and it is really amazing to be know that I have families at different churches around Arizona; from University Lutheran, to Desert Cross, to Trinity Lutheran Church. Even though I was only a toddler, I can clearly remember going on Easter Egg hunts around campus and watching fish in the canal with my dad while we waited for my mom finish conversing after service.

Living Lutheran: 'Freed in Christ to serve the neighbor'

Church GraphicAs Lutherans around the world reflect on the Reformation this month, the October cover story of Living Lutheran considers how the Reformation’s roots of social action continue to guide Lutheran identity and calling today. Through stories of the ELCA’s work in advocacy, global mission and domestic ministries, the article explores how the teachings of Jesus and Martin Luther are active in Lutherans’ faith lives today.
