It is part of the 500th Anniversary celebration of the Protestant Reformation. The dialogue will focus on the state of the Church after 500 years and what it might become.

Dr. William Gafkjen, Bishop of the Indiana-Kentucky Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Towards the end of the panel discussion, the audience will be invited into the conversation. “The purpose of the panel discussion is not to rehash 500 year old history or even the theological differences between protestant churches and the Roman Catholic Church. Our purpose is to acknowledge and celebrate those things we have in common and our hope for the future. We are together in proclaiming God’s Living Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” says Rev. David Doane, pastor of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church. Pastors, teachers and people from all denominations are invited to join us on Saturday, November 11, 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
