Save the Date: Church Equipping Forum on January 23, 6:30pm

Jan 06, 2020

As a church, we are seeking to better understand and love one another, particularly on issues where we may differ in opinion.

Our Winter forum, “On Civics and Civility,” will aim to equip us in understanding and embracing a biblical vision for civic engagement among followers of Christ and citizens of heaven.

The forum will be led by George Robertson, Rufus Smith, Mary Willson, and others. 

At the event, we’ll consider questions such as: How does our identity in Christ and our belonging to his church shape the way we pray, the way we vote and advocate, the way we think and talk about politicians and political issues, the way we interact about politics online, the way we engage people who hold different positions than we? What peculiar temptations do we Christians face during election seasons, and what might it look like to “stand the test” throughout 2020 and beyond? What will it look like for our church to pursue gospel-centered unity in these matters amidst our various diversities of thought, political leaning, background and experience, and stage of life? What are some good resources for ongoing reflection and engagement on these matters?

All are welcome to register and attend. Participation in discussion at the event is reserved for those who have read the material attached in the confirmation email (about 12 pages of content), which you will receive after registering. 

The event will be held on Thursday, January 23, 6:30-8:30pm in C-310.

Childcare will not be available for this event.
