Heritage Christian University in Florence, Alabama has two really interesting events coming up.
Elevate: Spiritual Enrichment Seminar (Oct 14-16) is on “The Sexual and the Spiritual“.
From their site,
Could three days in October make a difference in your family? Could three days in October change your life for the better? Could three days in October make a positive impact on your ministry?
During the fall of last year, a group of us at Heritage Christian University sat down to talk about what today’s church needs most. We asked ourselves, “What are our central issues of concern? What topics would make the greatest impact in our congregations and in the world?” From that conversation, ELEVATE 2013 was born. The theme, THE SEXUAL AND THE SPIRITUAL, isn’t an easy one. We’ll be tackling some of the most difficult issues in the
church today, but they’re discussions in which our families, congregations, and communities must participate. From “Helping Children Cope With Divorce” to “Talking to Your Children About Sexting and Pornography”, and from “Creating a Church Culture Where Sinners Are Welcome” to “When Your Friends or Family Come Out of the Closet”, I know you’ll find, as I have, that these are real-world issues that we can’t be afraid to address if we are to be relevant and effective in our ministries. All ELEVATE sessions are open to anyone and everyone, and there is no cost to attend.
The classes are divided into six tracks designed to provide options for every member of your congregation — parents, children, husbands, wives, singles, ministers, elders, and more.
I am very appreciate that they are tackling this issue and thought this information would be helpful to pass along.
Also, on Oct 17 Heritage is hosting Dr. Everett Ferguson, one of the foremost scholars on the early church and New Testament backgrounds. You can get all that information here.
