Growing Reformed Churches Conference
The Growing Reformed Churches Conference is held annually. Featuring high caliber speakers at an affordable price, this conference is sure to be a great blessing for all who attend.
The topic of our 21st annual Growing Reformed Churches Conference is The Household of Faith: Exploring Life in the Family of God. Christians of all ages enjoy inestimable privileges, including the blessings of godly homes and covenant church families. How are believers to live out of these privileges, loving and serving one another in Christ, patterning their family life after the relationship of Christ and his Church? Our speakers will offer biblical, pastoral, and practical guidance for building strong Christian families.
Registration may be completed online through the church’s conference website page, or by mailing in the attached registration form. Complimentary refreshments will be served during the conference, and a Saturday lunch is available by purchase for $8.00 (please indicate purchase of this meal when registering). Various restaurant options are also available nearby the church campus.
We sincerely hope you will join us for an encouraging weekend of worship and biblical instruction!
