There will be a mandatory Rehoboth meeting for all participants (high school or otherwise) and parents of high school students on Sunday, May 15, from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in North Hall. We look forward to seeing you there as we prepare for this great trip!
Sunday Night Special
On Sunday, June 5 at 5:00 p.m., pastor and theologian Chris Ganski will discuss the Synodical report of the “Committee to Provide Pastoral Guidance re: Same-Sex Marriage.” Chris will discuss what is at the crux of the issue Biblically, theologically, and pastorally—and how this issue must impact how we “do church” in the future. What does it look like to be a church of both grace and truth?

Sunday morning adult education
Just how the Bible was preserved from ancient days to the present? Why should the Bible be trusted? Where did the Bible come from? Join us in Adult Education (North Hall B, 10:50 to 11:45 a.m.) for “The Story of the Bible.” We will examine the unique history of the Bible, its many translations, and the extent of the ancient documents that make the Bible unlike any other book.
