2017 500th Anniversary Reformation Tour

I reflect on the faith of the reformers and how they did not waver even in the threat of persecution. I have been able to share in Sunday School, book club and in conversations with friends and church family what I experienced.
Janet Harader, Golden Grad
This was a great way to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones. The tour guides were knowledgeable and personable, meeting all of our needs.
