SUMMER LECTURES

Two Saturday afternoon lectures also will be presented as part of the series and Summer Activities Program.

  • On Saturday, July 25, the Rev. Dr. Ben Witherington will speak on "Joanna/Junia: The First Woman Apostle" at 4 p.m. Learn more about Junia, an early follower of Jesus who the apostle Paul wrote about.
     
  • On Saturday, August 1, the Rev. Dr. Greg Jones will speak on "Resurrecting Excellence" at 3 p.m. How do we, as Christians, rekindle and encourage an unselfish ambition for the gospel in a way that shuns competition and mediocrity and focuses on the beauty, power, and excellence of living as faithful disciples of the crucified and risen Christ? 

THEME: A MORE EXCELLENT WAY

Our summer theme is “A More Excellent Way” based on 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a. In this letter, the Apostle Paul reaches out to a divided Corinthian church and reminds them what it means to be one body of Christ that celebrates the diverse gifts of its members. What might this mean to the Church today as we consider how faithfully to follow Christ together?
