Dear Friend,

Reformation Day (October 31st) will be here soon, and Holy Cross Lutheran Church is excited host a Reformation Walk on Saturday, October 29, 2022, as part of our celebration. You are invited to travel back in time five hundred years with us on that day.

Over five hundred years ago a monk named Martin Luther set in motion what would become known as the Protestant Reformation. The whole world—especially the Church—was affected by these events. For many people, however, the impact of the Reformation, and its importance, is virtually unknown. Whether your church body was born during the Reformation, existed beforehand, or came into being afterward, it has been shaped by what transpired. Knowing about this special time in history also gives valuable insight to how our world is different today than it was 500 years ago because of what happened.

At the Reformation Walk, you will experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of life during the Reformation period—especially those connected with the life of Martin Luther. This special event is designed for people of all ages, so bring the whole family to take a step back in time!

During the walk, participants move through 10 stations learning about the Reformation, receiving a sticker as they visit each location on their map.

At the Reformation Walk, participants will travel to these ten stations . . .

  • Learn about Luther's Ninety-Five Theses—what started it all!
  • Meet Frederick the Wise—protector of Martin Luther
  • Witness Martin Luther's baptism and meet his parents
  • Make and snack on pretzels
  • Take a crash course in German from Ursula Cotta
  • See John Tetzel sell indulgences
  • Meet Martin and Katie and learn about their home life
  • Create and learn about the meaning behind Luther's seal
  • Play a game and learn about a daring escape in fish barrels
  • Sing hymns of praise with the music cantor


The Reformation Walk will take place from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm on Saturday, October 29th. There is no cost to attend this event.
