Exploring the Church in Exile - A Weekend with Dr. Lee Beach (Sept. 30 & Oct. 1)
I extend an invitation to you and your parishioners to a weekend conference we will be hosting on September 30 & October 1.
Many of you will recall Dr. Lee Beach whom we had speak via video conference at a luncheon in February to launch Elevate 2016. There was a lot of great feedback on what Dr. Beach had shared during that luncheon that I have decided to invite him to speak over the course of a weekend to unpack some themes from his recent book, 'Church in Exile: Living in Hope After Christendom'
This weekend event will be sponsored by Valleyview Community Church and First Baptist Church in collaboration with Jared Siebert and the New Leaf Network, an interdenominational Canadian church planting network and will take place on the weekend of Friday, September 30 & Saturday, October 1.
The purpose of the weekend is to stimulate conversations around the biblical motif of exile and how the church in 21st century Canada and faithfully serve Christ in a shifting cultural and religious climate.
The weekend will consist of 3 keynote addresses from Dr. Beach, along with multiple breakout sessions, providing space for shared conversations together.
Early registration is $30/person (before Sept. 23) which includes the provision of lunch on Saturday. Should you bring a group of 5+ people from your church the group registration rate offered will be $25/person.
I look forward to spending a weekend of worship and shared conversations together which will benefit the work of Christ and His church in Greater Sudbury. Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact me at your convenience.
Love in Christ,
Jason Tripp, Pastor, Valleyview Community Church
