Larry McCutcheon
Youth Minister
Dr. Sharon Galgay Ketcham
Will Our Young People Keep the Faith?

We hope that you will join us the next three Wednesdays for our series on It Takes a Church: Helping Our Students Have Faith Beyond High School.  Larry will be speaking this evening and two Wednesdays from now about how ALL OF US can be a church that strengthens and preserves the faith of our young people. And next week, we will have the 2019 Holley-Hull Lecturer address this vital subject. Dr. Sharon Galgay Ketcham is Professor of Theology and Christian Ministries at Gordon College in Massachusetts. A veteran of years of student ministry, she has lectured at institutions ranging from Yale Divinity School to Denver Seminary. Dr. Ketcham is best known for her book, Reciprocal Church: Becoming a Community Where Faith Flourishes Beyond High School. The dinner on that evening of November 6 will be a special one.  

This is a VITAL topic for the entire church to hear about and to get behind. We hope to see you at these talks.

More details to follow.

Sign up in the church foyer Sunday.
