The Presbytery of Ohio Women's Retreat is September 22-23 and features biblical counselor Michelle Horton of Tampa FL as the speaker. The retreat will be at Camp Akita in Logan OH and will cost $85. Brochures are available in the church lobby.
As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Covenant OPC in Vandalia, OH would like to invite you and your congregation to a special Reformation Conference on Friday–Saturday September 29–30. The purpose of this conference is to tell the story of the French Protestant reformers (Huguenot) and hear their story of faithfulness amid great persecution. We hope to make these stories practical by thinking about what we can learn from these saints for our own present situation. We have two outstanding speakers coming, both of whom are world-class experts in the French Reformation: Bill Edgar from Westminster Theological Seminary and Glenn Sunshine from Central Connecticut State University. Both share our reformed convictions and both have deep pastoral sensibilities. They are gifted communicators who will be targeting their lectures for a broad church-going audience.
We’ll have our fellowship lunch on Sunday, October 1 after the morning worship service. Our food theme is chili.
Join us October 1 for the ninth installment of our church revitalization series, From Embers to a Flame. We’ll watch on the topic of “Dynamic Leadership.”
