LOST AND FOUND PRESENTS:
The Luther500 Festival is a seven-day cultural-immersion experience that brings the Reformation
to life as you serve, learn, and celebrate in the places where Martin Luther did the same 500 years ago.
This pilgrimage to Germany will help revitalize schools, congregations, and personal faith journies as participants
come face to face with the breadth and importance of the Reformation, make new friends, connect with their heritage,
and experience first hand how Church history can be a whole lot of fun.
