Come celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation in Germany with Metigoshe Ministries! Join us for our 14-day trip to visit many of the famous sites and learn about the roots of our Lutheran faith tradition.

Some of the trip highlights:

  • Visit the cities of Berlin, Wittenberg, Leipzig, Eisleben, Halle, Naumburg, Erfurt, and Eisenach.
  • Tour the places where Luther was born, baptized, preached, posted his “95 Theses”, and so much more.
  • Tour museums, castles, monasteries and other historical sites.
  • Visit the churches where Lutheran musicians Handel and Bach composed and performed much of their music.
  • Tour a traditional winery and taste the products of the famous Naumburg wine region.
  • Spend a half-day visiting a former concentration camp where a quarter million people were imprisoned between 1937 and 1945 and 50,000 of them died.
  • While in Berlin, see the remains of the Berlin Wall, the bomb-damaged tower of Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag and the Bonhoeffer House.
  • Meet and learn from pastors, theologians and historians about the history and development of our Lutheran tradition with lectures and walking tours throughout the trip.

Adventure Marriage Retreat
September 22-24, 2017
7:00 pm Friday to 1:00 pm Sunday

We have so much fun with our winter Marriage Retreat that we thought we would hold one in the fall, too!  We will spend time out at Camp Metigoshe on Pelican Lake for some outdoor activities, high ropes and worship.   No need to worry about sleeping in the cabins as you will be sleeping and eating (and a few other activities) at our Christian Center.  If you have attended our previous marriage retreat or are interested in getting away with your spouse, please join us!

Cost: $210 per couple

$10 discount per couple if registered before September 15, 2017
