We have a new summer Bible Study beginning on Thursdays June 22nd at 6:30 pm called Victory over Darkness by Neil Anderson. This is a popular study about our identity in Christ. Come to learn how we are called to renounce the things that are not of Jesus as well as learn tools to conquer the issues, once and for all, that keep us from fully receiving all He has for us. Class taught by Marge Dickie.
We are honored to present The Reverend Heidi McGinnes, Director of Outreach for Christian Solidarity International, an international human rights organization. On Sunday, June 25, The Reverend Heidi McGinnes will preach in the 10:50 am New Song Service, and then present a bible study from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, The Christian Witness: In the Midst of Persecution. There will be a light meal & childcare available with registration.
The Reverend Heidi McGinness is an ordained Presbyterian Minister who serves as Director of Outreach for Christian Solidarity International-USA since 2004. CSI assists victims of jihad, war, and persecution. Fourteen trips since 2004 to war-torn Sudan with CSI have catapulted Pastor McGinness into becoming a modern-day abolitionist and passionate defender of the victims of slavery, genocide and persecution of ALL people.
