Transformation Weekend               
Friday, October 5th  – Sunday, October 7th
First Christian Church of Redding


   Mark your calendars now for this very important weekend in our spiritual development.  We are privileged to host Rev. Dr. Bruce Epperly to guide us in spiritual enrichment, understanding God’s purposes for creation and individuals, and tapping into our inner resources for serving God locally and beyond.  Bruce is a pastor (South Congregational Church, Centerville, MA), theologian, and spiritual guide.  He has authored over 40 books in the realm of progressive Christianity with emphasis on spirituality, scripture, theology, and ministry.  He is a professor in the doctoral program at Wesley Theological Seminary. 

   Our weekend with Bruce will begin Friday, October 5th at 6:30 pm with an introduction and opening remarks on discovering God’s activity in our lives and coming to embrace this wonderful adventure we have been called to with God.  We will reconvene Saturday, October 6th at 10:00 am for more unpacking of the “adventure”, enjoy a sandwich, salad, and dessert potluck for lunch, and then draw together within groups to consider how what we have learned translates into the church.  We anticipate welcoming folks in the region so we will want to bring extra food for the lunch. Those willing to house guests for one night, please sign up on back table. The afternoon will conclude around 2 pm then Bruce will be preaching for us in both worship services on Sunday, October 7th.  There is no cost for the weekend and we encourage you to help spread the word.  All are Welcome!
