Upcoming Items of Interest
SATURDAY AFTERNOON @ 1PM

Two events in the Seventh-day Church are converging this fall: the Sabbath School lesson series on "Oneness in Christ," and what might be a historic Annual Council in Battle Creek, commencing October 11. Unity is the focus of the lessons, and the threat to unity undergirds a key agenda item of the Annual Council. Many are saying--and many more are thinking--that the unity of the church was never under greater threat than it is now. 

Dr. Roy Adams will discuss issues of unity arising from the Sabbath School lessons, and reflect on a draconian document related to women's ordination and slated for a vote at Annual Council. If approved, this document might have serious repercussions for the 
unity of the church. 

Roy Adams has traveled around the world, serving in ministry as a colporteur, pastor, and professor, fueled by his passion for making theology accessible to people. Roy has authored several books and, before retiring, was the associate editor of the Adventist Review. Roy and Celia, his wife of more than 40 years, currently live in Maryland.

NIGHT OF HOPE - Oct 26th @ 7pm
It's in the headlines; it's sometimes in our own personal stories. It is the feeling that everything is falling apart and out of our control. But there's ALWAYS hope, and SOMEONE who is holding it all together.

Maybe you or someone you know needs that reminder. That's why we're inviting you to join us for WGTS 91.9's Night of Hope. It's a chance to reclaim your purpose, and discover the joy God has in store for your life.

This special one-night event will be led by acclaimed worship leader Meredith Andrews (Open Up the Heavens, Deeper, and many others).
