Rehoboth hosts ELCRN celebrations

09 November 2017 | Events

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Namibia (ELCRN) last Sunday commemorated the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran reformation and 60 years since the church’s formation out of the work of the Rhenish Mission Church.

The celebrations held at the ELCRN Paulus Parish in Rehoboth, were attended by the Windhoek, Mariental, Keetmanshoop, Usakos, Tsumeb and Otjiwarongo circuits attracting more than a 1 000 people.

According to retired Pastor Stefanus Tiboth, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Namibia grew out of the work of the Rhenish Missionary Society from Germany, which began working in the area in 1842. The church was constituted in 1957 and named the Evangelical Lutheran Church in South-West Africa (Rheinische Mission). After Namibia gained its independence in 1990, ELCRN took its present name.

The celebrations in Rehoboth began on Friday night with a welcoming worship service, while a family fun day was held on Saturday which ended with a gospel show. The festivities ended on Sunday with congregants marching from the traffic lights at Woermann Brock to the Paulus Parish dressed in red and white and led by ELCRN Bishop Ernst ||Gamxamub, circuit deans and pastors, followed by a worship service led by retired Bishop Emeritus Zephania Kameeta. – Nampa
