Do You Have Questions About Your Salvation?
“Are our imaginations of salvation too narrow, self-obsessed, and self-justifying for the nature of the gospel?”
“We should dare to hope that salvation is wider and broader and higher and deeper than we ever might imagine.”
These are the words of Tom Greggs, PhD. called one of today’s leading Christian theologians, and author of the recent book "The Breadth of Salvation." Through the generosity of the Durfee 360 Lecture Series, Dr. Greggs will be at our church (virtually) to present four lectures during March. Dr. Greggs, FRSE, holds the Marischal Chair at the University of Aberdeen, where he also serves as the Head of Divinity.
Lecture 1: The Breadth of the Cross
Lecture 2: The Breadth of Salvation in the Society of God
Lecture 3: The Breadth of Grace for the Word
Lecture 4: The Breadth of Repentance
Kell First Friday
The Kell Sunday School Class has a rich tradition dating back to the 1970's. Through the years, we have had many projects ranging from Sunday morning class to study groups, seasonal celebrations, service projects for college age students and local homeless shelters, and special projects as they occur. We host a Kell First Friday September through May of each year, meeting in homes to socialize, share and care for one another.
We have hosted the annual Cow Town Service the first Sunday in June for over 30 years. It is a historical tribute to the first church ever built in Wichita by the first congregation to ever worship here. Before there was a Wichita and before there was a Sedgwick County, there was a First Presbyterian Church.
To receive notice of the Kell First Friday events, please consider adding your name to the Kell Class mailing list by contacting Janice Van Sickle at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you.
