One-time showing of movie in Peru theater

PERU — To celebrate the 500th anniversary of “The Reformation,” Redeemer Lutheran Church in Peru will sponsor a one-time showing of the new Luther movie at the Peru theater.

This entertaining new film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, and life-or-death showdowns. At the same time, it's a story about the most important questions of life, including "Who am I?" "What is my purpose" and "How do I get right with God?"

It’s a must-see for any lifelong Lutheran, and a chance to share the message of your Lutheran heritage with others. And the only place you can see the film is in the theater on the night of the church’s special event.

This is the first time in more than 60 years that Lutherans have made a feature-length film about Martin Luther and the Reformation. Filmed in historic locations across Europe, this movie brings Luther’s story to life with exquisite attention to detail. It’s a chance to strengthen your faith by revisiting the birth of Protestant Reformation, and to share that experience with others. Area pastors are invited to answer viewers questions following the movie.

All tickets must be purchased in advance before Wednesday, Oct. 18. If there are not 87 total seats reserved, the event will be cancelled and no money will be collected.
