On October 31th, 2021 Trinity Lutheran Church in Wichita is hosting the annual joint-circuit Reformation Festival of circuits 10 and 11. All are invited to join the festivities! We first gather around our Lord's gifts given to us in the Divine Service. Our guest preacher will be the Rev Scott Stiegemeyer. A circuit-wide choir will lead the Church's song. After the service we'll gather for a banquet dinner. When most are ready for coffee, we'll sit at the feet of Rev Scott Stiegemeyer for a Reformation Lecture. Banquet tickets are $15/plate, children 10 and under eat free. The offering from the service will support the Joint-Seminary Fund. We rejoice at the opportunity to gather Lutherans from around Kansas to celebrate our Lord's faithfulness to us from generation to generation! Hope to see you October 31st!
