Several Activities (E) Services

The REFORMATION SUNDAY was celebrated on October 28 at Uhuru Highway Lutheran Cathedral (UHLC). A special Order of Service was prepared for the occasion, highlighting some of Luther's 95 Theses about Repentance, The Gospel, and About the Correct Use of Money in the Church. 9 Theses were displayed on posters.
This is the 490 anniversary of the Reformation. The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation will be celebrated in 2017. A big outreach effort is been done by the LCMS and its partner churches to reach with the Gospel of Jesus 100 millions of unreached and uncommitted people during this period.
In the afternoon of that Reformation Sunday, the film "LUTHER" was showed in the church. 102 people watched the film, knowing better about the origin of the Lutheran Church. Pastor Carlos explained about the background of the Reformation before the film was presented, in a joint effort of Nuru Lutheran Media Ministry and UHLC. Luther's Small Catechism, tracts and Nuru Correspondence Bible Course and other materials were available to all participants.


On November 11 (Anniversary of Luther's Baptism Day), Pastor Rune Mjolhus preached at UHLC. He is the new Scripture Mission Area Director for East Africa. His father was missionary in Tanzania and Pastor Rune was born there. He did his studies in Norway and was missionary in Tanzania too. He speaks fluently Kiswahili.
