Back in 2017, we celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation with what we called our “Beer, Brats and Movie Bash.” Many of us gathered to watch the 2003 movie “Luther” followed by a Martin and Katie Luther inspired meal, including bratwurst and beer. We continued the tradition in 2018 with a "Beer, Brats and Escape Room Bash" and in 2019 with a "Beer, Brats and Scavenger Hunt Bash." I assume you have noticed the trend in these celebrations.
The question is, how do we continue this delicious and fun tradition in the time of Covid? How about:
(Root)Beer, Brats and Drive-in Movie Bash
The entire event will take place in the parking lot. When you pull into the driveway your food order will be taken and then your food and drink delivered to your car. You can eat in or near your car, whichever works better for you. The sun is supposed to set at 6:30 that night, so we will hopefully be able to start the movie around 7:00 or 7:15. We will be watching the classic 1953 movie “Martin Luther” which was nominated for two Oscars: Best Cinematography and best Art Direction/Set Decoration. Just like Parking Lot Worship, you will set your radio dial to 99.3 FM and hear the movie right over your car's speakers. Just like drive-ins used to do! As always, this is a free event. You are, of course, welcome to make a free will offering. (In past years, this free will offering was used to "reform" our finances, i.e. reduce the budget deficit we may be experiencing.)
(Root)Beer, brats and Drive-in Movie Bash will take place on Reformation Sunday, October 25, beginning at 6:30 pm. CLICK HERE to reserve your spot and pre-order your food.
