2017 Spring Symposium

The 2017 Spring Symposium will be Sunday, March 19. We look forward to hearing our guest speaker Dr. Thomas Are, Jr, Senior Pastor at Village Presbyterian Church in Prairie Village, Kansas. Join us at 8:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. for worship, 9:45 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. for lectures in Calvin Hall.

Our theme is “Christianity is More than Believing in Jesus.” There is a temptation to assume that Christian faith is something that we think. That is to say, thinking the right things is what makes the church the church. We Presbyterians like to get our doctrine straight! But careful attention to the scriptures invites us to see Christian faith as something we practice.

Following Jesus may have less to do with getting our creeds exactly right, and more to do with how we treat each other. After all, when asked what is the most important thing in our lives, Jesus said, “Love God with all that you are and love your neighbor as yourself.”
