A Return to Grace: Luther’s Life and Legacy

500 years ago, Martin Luther triggered a seismic upheaval that rocked the western world – with an impact that continues to reverberate to this day.  This entertaining new feature-length film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, secret hideouts, and life-or-death showdowns.  A the same time, it’s a story about the most important questions in life.  “Who am I?”  “What is my purpose?”  “How do I get right with God?”

It’s a must see for any Lutheran and a wonderful opportunity to share the message of our Lutheran heritage with your family and friends.  Bethlehem is thrilled to host an special, 0ne-night-only screening of A Return to Grace at the Marcus Theater in Menomonee Falls.  This special screening is scheduled for Wednesday, April 26 @ 6:30 PM.  This is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends and neighbors to an entertaining event in our community which emphases God’s free and faithful grace in Jesus Christ!

This is the the first time in more than 60 years that Lutherans have made a feature-length film about Martin Luther and the Reformation.  Filmed in historical locations across Europe, this movie brings Luther’s story to life with exquisite attention to detail.  It’s a way to strengthen our faith by revisiting the birth place of the Lutheran Reformation – and a chance to share that experience with others.

IMPORTANT: All tickets must be purchased in advance.  Tickets may be purchased at a special website set up for the screening and you can access this website through this link: ORDER TICKETS HERE!

​If you have any questions or would like to order tickets apart from the website, please contact Pastor Arnold by calling the church office (262-251-3555) or at parnold@bethlehem-wels.org.​
