500th Celebration of the Reformation

Sunday, November 5, 2017
Noon - 7 p.m.
Dorton Arena, Raleigh, NC

On Sunday, November 5, 2017 Dorton Arena on the NC State Fairgrounds will be filled with songs of praise to our Lord. The event marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses which was a day that changed the world encouraging the church to return to the Scriptures.

Following a moving time of worship with thousands of voices we will serve our neighbors. A health and dental clinic is planned for the afternoon and early evening as well as an art show and music festival. 

Our main speaker will be renowned international speaker Rev. Dr. Gregory P. Seltz who is the emeritus speaker of the longest running Christian Radio program in the world, The Lutheran Hour. Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) is a Christian outreach ministry supporting churches worldwide. LHM produces Christian radio and TV programming for broadcast, as well as Internet and print communications, dramas, music, and outreach materials, to reach the unchurched in more than 30 countries.

Volunteer Sign-up

This form provides you with the opportunity to share your skills with the preparations for the event. All volunteers are invited to a training event to take place a month before the event. Each location will share the same training information. Plans are underway to offer this same training in Charlotte, Greensboro and other locations as we desire to see the impact of the event live on as many participating church prepare future events at their own sites.
