Are you ready to celebrate?

This October 21-23 (Friday through Sunday), the Int'l Lutheran Laymen's League/Lutheran Hour Ministries will celebrate 100 years of serving others through Gospel proclamation, producing resources for personal outreach and congregational growth, and declaring a changeless Christ to a changing world.

Union Station in downtown St. Louis will be the site for this weekend-long celebration and will feature a Family Night Oktoberfest in traditional German style, including German cuisine, music, and authentic Deutsch dancers on Friday. There will also be a special showing of the brand-new feature-length film Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World. This production, which is sponsored by Thrivent Financial and produced by the Emmy Award-winning team of Steve Boettcher and Mike Trinklein, will air nationally on PBS in 2017. It's narrated by Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham of Downton Abbey), and it highlights Luther's life and theology, showing how the events of the Reformation continue to have an effect on the lives of Lutherans and the world-at-large.

On Saturday, several dynamic speakers will challenge and motivate those attending through their heartfelt ministry stories and messages of God at work in the world. Be prepared to expand your horizons as directors from more than 30 of LHM's international ministry centers will be in St. Louis, sharing their mission of taking the Gospel to a world desperately in need of the Savior. Saturday night will also include a gourmet meal; music from jazz songstress Erin Bode; a testimonial from Gary Hall, founder of Hollywood Impact Studios, who will comment on the impact that the This is the Life television program had on his faith; and comments from Kurt Buchholz, president and CEO of LHM, about future ministry opportunities.

On Sunday morning a free shuttle service from Union Station will take guests to the campus of Concordia Seminary for breakfast and a special sending service led by Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour.
