O Church Arise Conference

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on May 6, 2021 at 9:00 am

The Presbyterian Church in America is at a crossroads. Many PCA officers and laypeople are deeply concerned about the future of our beloved denomination. To encourage the PCA to resist doctrinal drift and cultural accommodation, the Gospel Reformation Network is hosting a conference entitled “O Church, Arise: A Passionate Plea for Biblical and Confessional Integrity.” The conference, held at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, AL (the birthplace of the PCA) is for both church officers and laypeople.

Our church will livestream the event on May 5th and 6th in the Covenant Classroom. The schedule is as follows:
