Luther Movie Nights

Martin Luther: The Idea That Changed the World
This film tells the rousing adventure story that was Martin Luther’s life, following his bold quest for truth – a journey that would reshape the church and the world. Hugh Bonneville narrates the 108-minute film. Revisiting the birth of the Protestant Reformation, the film is a must-see for every Lutheran. It was filmed in historic locations throughout Europe, and it brings the adventurous life of Martin Luther to life. It tells a story filled with political intrigue, kidnappings, and life-or-death showdowns. At the same time, it is a story that deals with some of life’s most important questions, including “Who am I?” “What is my purpose?” and “How do I get right with God?”
Tickets must be purchased in advance. Click here for the movie trailer.
