Faces of the Reformation

Katharina von Bora was born in Saxony in 1499. Not much is known about her family, though recently historians have been researching to learn more about her early life. What is known is that she was born to a family of impoverished nobility and that she was sent to live in a Benedictine convent in Brehna when she was very young, around six. Thus Katharina began her education in a convent school, leading her on the path to becoming a nun.

In 1509, Katharina’s father arranged for her to be sent to the Marienthron cloister at Nimbschen, where her aunt was the abbess. Part of the Cistercian order, these nuns lived sparse lives without any luxury and performed manual labor, especially in the field. Katharina lived there as a postulant (candidate for the order) until 1515 when, at the age of 16, she took her vows and became a novice. Katharina took her vows seriously in the coming years, living a life of poverty and manual labor.  (Continued here...)


From the Elders

The Reason For The Season

The call process is still ongoing. Regretfully our first candidate respectfully declined our call offer. Hopefully we will soon find a new shepherd to lead our congregation. Please keep praying! If you have any questions or concerns please talk with one of the elders or anyone on the call committee. The Christmas season has come and gone, we hope everyone had a blessed Christmas. Thank you to everyone who has agreed to run for a office on the church board.
