Arlington Heights, Illinois -- This fall marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's famous 95 Theses and the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

At the heart of the reformation was the conviction that salvation is available by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone, as revealed in Scripture alone.

From October 23--27, you are welcome to The Orchard each evening at different campuses (Arlington Heights, Barrington, Itasca and Northfield) of The Orchard for a time of singing, praying, preaching and celebrating God's grace.

"Everything from the personal access we have to the Bible, to the emphasis on preaching in our worship services, to the education of our children, has been shaped and influenced by the reformers. Most of all, the gospel of God's grace we celebrate every day found fresh emphasis in the reformation and for that we are immensely grateful," said Pastor Brad Wetherell of The Orchard's Itasca Campus.
