After All These Years:
Roman Catholic and Reformed Perspectives
on the Reformations of the 16th Century
November 17-18, 2017
National Presbyterian Church
4101 Nebraska Avenue, NW
Washintgon, DC 20016
The 16th Century was a turning point in the history of Christianity. It was a time of profound religious ferment in Europe driven by desires for reform that not only splintered the church in ways that still endure but gave rise to multiple re-formations of Christian belief and practice as well. The purpose of this conference, held on the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation, is to take a fresh look at the events of that era in the light of subsequent developments in a manner that reflects the current thinking of both Reformed Protestants and Roman Catholics.
On Friday evening in the sanctuary of National Presbyterian, there will be a choral concert presenting music that was inspired by the Reformation. Our own Lewinsville Choir will be part of the leadership of this concert.

The Reformed Institute of Metropolitan Washington has been created by a group of Presbyterian churches in the Washington D.C. area to promote understanding and deepen appreciation of the Reformed tradition among the staffs and members of Presbyterian churches.
The Institute’s specific initiatives vary somewhat from year to year, and they are intended to meet the needs of a variety of different kinds of people. Some are targeted for lay leaders (elders, deacons, teachers, etc.); others are for particular sub-cultures within the life of the church (teens professing their faith, young adults, women, etc.), and still others are for all those, regardless of age, gender, etc. who are interested in taking advantage of the opportunities these offerings present.
Lewinsville is a founding member and sponsor of the Reformed Institute. Lewinsville supports the work of the Reformed Institute and encourages our members to take part in the course offerings. Click on the link below for more information.
