We are proud to announce that Woodward Park Church of Christ’s annual spiritual growth workshop is back beginning Friday, September 23rd at 6 PM. This time with a new, streamlined schedule and a new name… EQUIP! The theme this year will be “Our Strange, Alien Existence” as we journey through Peter’s first and second letters. The world we live in is topsy-turvy. Isaiah 5:20 reminds us, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Our culture, which once embraced and championed Christian thought and beliefs is now rapidly moving away from those things. Now more than ever, Peter addresses our need as God’s people to navigate the world and work for God within our culture. How do we as Christians relate to the culture with Christ-likeness and grace, while maintaining our dedication to godliness in the face of adversity? We hope to let God’s word show us the way. We ask you to pray about this and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s EQUIP!
