2017 marks the 500th year of the Protestant Reformation. Join us at BVBC on June 30, 2017 at 7 p.m. to experience the new documentary movie: Luther: The Life and Legacy of the German Reformer. There is no cost to see the movie. This movie kicks off our summer series class “Celebrating the Reformation.”
Discover the story behind the man who sparked the Protestant Reformation. Told through a seamless combination of live-action storytelling and artistic animation, Martin Luther’s daring life is presented in extensive detail while still making the film relevant, provocative, and accessible. See the movie trailer.
Childcare is available during the movie. Sign up for childcare in the Gathering Area on Sunday mornings.
