VDMA_10709cNEW MEN’S STUDY: The Saturday Morning Men’s Group, which meets most Saturdays from 7:30-9:00 a.m. in the Youth Lounge, is starting a new DVD study entitled, The Protestant Revolt: A Study of the Protestant Reformation. With a world class team of scholars, pastors, and theologians, Dr. Peter Lillback, President of Westminster Theological Seminary, leads us through an eye-opening journey around the world. From Luther’s Germany to Calvin’s Geneva to Spain, England, Scotland, and beyond to America, our modern society, economy, government, and church, have their roots in the Reformation. Here we can clearly see how the Reformation shaped the world we live in today. Come and learn why you stand where you stand. For more information, contacts are Chris Casten and Don Reimold. Call the church office for their contact information.
