The Preacher will be Rev. Dr. Cameron MacKenzie, professor at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Following the service and a short break, Rev. Dr. MacKenzie will give a presentation on the biblical doctrine of the two kingdoms – the kingdom of God and the kingdom of government – in which we live and the Christian’s responsibility in both.

This is our circuit’s ‘kick-off’ event for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation celebration next year (2017). Our circuit’s goal for this celebration is “Celebration, Outreach and Education”. It is our desire that members of our congregations will bring unchurched friends and family members to these events.
