Join us from October 7th-9th for “Our Great Heritage,” a weekend conference sponsored by Return to Wittenberg.
Return to Wittenberg is a conference aimed at providing encouragement, instruction and community on the basis of a shared love for Christ and the teachings of the Lutheran Confessions. The conference will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the translation of the New Testament into German by Martin Luther.
Presentations in this free-conference format will be given by ELS, WELS, and LCMS theologians on three areas of our great heritage: Scripture, Catechesis, and Hymnody.
Presenting will be Dr. Adam Koontz of Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, with two unique topics: ‘Our Heritage of Christian Liberty: On the Christian Conscience in its Being Bound Only to the Word of God’ and ‘Our Heritage of God’s Gifts: On the Family and Children as the Primary Earthly Gifts the Lord Gives.’
We will also hear a presentation from Pr. Dagan Siepert, titled, ‘Glorious Now We Press Toward Glory: A Summary of The Bible In View of Glorification and Sanctification.’ Kantor Daniel Baker will be applying our heritage of hymnody.
Finally, after a brief presentation on our heritage of Bible Translations, commemorating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s German Bible, the Rev. Edward Frey, Licensed Professional Counselor, Christian Family Solutions, Mankato, MN, will discuss a Lutheran approach to counseling.
Uplifting and reverent Daily Offices and a Sunday Divine Service will be offered by Faith Lutheran Church (ELS) and led by ordained ELS and WELS clergy. Those who are confirmed members of ELS or WELS congregations in good standing will be welcome to come to the Lord’s Table.
