PALM Reformation Festival

Every year, the congregations of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in the Pittsburgh area gather at 3:00PM on the last Sunday in October to celebrate Reformation Sunday.


A guest preacher is featured at this service; we usually host a synod or district president or vice-president or a seminary professor.


An offering is taken at this service to support one of our Pittsburgh-area LCMS missions, which is selected every year by the PALM Board of Directors and then ratified at the annual delegate meeting on the third Sunday in September.


A reception sponsored by Concordia Lutheran Ministries follows the service. The annual Reformation service is jointly supported by PALM and the Pittsburgh Pastoral Conference.

Our 2022 preacher was the Rt. Rev’d. John Pingel, Bishop and President of the Eastern District.


Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith

“The righteous will live by faith.”

Romans 1:17
