Sign Language Interpreters to Participate in Northwest Reformation 500

Lutheran Ministry Services Northwest has secured sponsorship for two American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters at Northwest Reformation 500!

Thanks to a grant from the Mill Neck Foundation through Lutheran Friends of the Deaf, the Deaf community will receive the spoken Word of God in ASL during the Northwest Reformation 500 festival worship service.

Northwest Reformation 500 is a once-in-a-lifetime regional event to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation—through inspiring worship, impactful service, and engaging fellowship. The event will be held October 29, 2017 at Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, WA.
