  • Saginaw Area Joint Reformation Service: The WELS/ELS congregations of greater Saginaw will gather in a joint expression of our confessional Lutheran faith as we give thanks for God’s blessings through the Lutheran Reformation. This joint service of worship and thanksgiving will be held on Sunday, November 6, at St Paul’s Lutheran Church (Court & Bond Streets) in Saginaw. The service will begin at 4:00 PM. Rev. Marcus Manthey, pastor of S.t John’s Lutheran Church of Zilwaukee and chairman of the Saginaw Area Joint Services Committee will be the festival preacher. A children’s choir as well as festival organ and instrumentation will beautify the worship.
  • Michigan Lutheran Seminary will present the play You Can’t Take It With You. You Can’t Take It With You is a comical play about the Sycamore Family. The family is a little quirky, with the exception of one daughter, Alice who is “normal.” Alice is soon to be engaged to Tony Kirby and humorous things happen when the Kirby family is introduced to the Sycamores. Crazy fireworks in the basement, bad ballet dancing, and the quick wit of Grandpa all make for a very entertaining show. Tickets go on sale Monday, Oct. 17. Performances are Nov. 18 and 19 at 7:00 PM and Nov 20 at 2:30 PM. Tickets are $10 adults $5 children (through 8th grade). Please call 793-1010 ext. 264 for tickets!
