August gathering... and beyond...

Hello Emergent Friends,

Last month we had a great discussion, and we’re hoping to expand on it this month.
Next gathering: Wednesday, August 10, 10:30 a.m. @ the Bite (corner of Pearl & Ottawa).

Conversation: We will have a panel talking about how they are dealing with the radical tension of belonging-believing-behaving. We’ll have three presenters from different perspectives (i.e. youth pastor, church planter, lay person)

For so long we’ve held to the idea that we need to believe before we can belong to the church… has this been a false assumption? Do some people belong long before they believe and behave correctly? And what are the implications of such things?

We would love to have you join us for this conversation!

Upcoming events:

~ Brian McLaren, Mike Wittmer, Ed Dobson @ GRTS
(grand rapids theological seminary) on September 12 ~
