Halloween or Hallowed Eve?

This Sunday is Halloween and many will be celebrating it. It has become an event with parties, costumes, kids having fun and the ever famous trick or treat. But how did it all start, where did it start? Today we remember Reformation Sunday, let’s not forget God is our Lord.In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day was a high point on the church calendar.To prepare church people, the evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later became known as Halloween. 504 years ago this coming Sunday, on October 31, 1517, an Augustinian monk named Martin Luther was so disgusted with the organized church of his day that he nailed to the church at Wittenberg where he was the parish priest, 95 theses he wanted to be debated.  

From that event, a movement began that absolutely changed the world.  

At the close of this Sunday's message, we will remember the Lord Jesus Christ through the ordinance of the Lord's Table.
