On Sept. 24, 2017 at 10:45 AM (after our one worship service that morning) the Session has called a special congregational meeting for the purpose of voting on motions related to the Session’s unanimous recommendation that PCBW accept the terms of dismissal negotiated with the Presbytery of Kendall, and be dismissed to ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians.
“What does real Christianity look like?” “How do I know my faith is real?" These questions lie at the heart of the book James, the book we are excited to announce we will be studying during PCBW’s Fall Focus study this year. What James want to challenge us with is this truth: that real faith is not seen in what we claim to be true, but in how we live.
Wednesday nights, October 2017 - May 2018.
