St. Michael Church Hosts Reformation Celebration

Brother Martin Luther (Rev. Sid Nelson) is interviewed by Dawn Favata.

St. Michael Lutheran Church, located at 1925 Birkdale Drive in Wellington, celebrated Reformation Sunday on Oct. 30. Red is the color of the church celebrating Reformation, and the congregation dressed in red to add to the festivities.

Dawn Favata interviewed Brother Martin Luther (Rev. Sid Nelson) during the service when he spoke of his decision to nail his 95 theses to the church door to question church practices of the time that he did not feel were rooted in the Bible.

His intention was to start a dialogue, not a new religion. However, this event did lead to the formation of the Protestant Church and is considered the birth of the Lutheran Church.

At the conclusion of the church service, the congregation enjoyed breakfast and fellowship. Learn more at
