First Session – 6:00 p.m. Contend for the Faith (Jude 3-4) Pastor Tom Ascol While Christians must always be prepared for the proclamation and defense of the faith, there are challenges that occasionally arise that demand that we contend earnestly for that faith.
Second session: 7:45 p.m.* The Cost of Contending: The Great Ejection of 1662 – Pastor Paul Medved While current upheavals in society, politics, and religion strike many Christians as new, the root problems are always the same. Discovering that we are not alone, that generations of other believers have endured these and even greater challenges, is remarkably helpful and encouraging.
Saturday, October 12
First session: 8:30 a.m. Understand the Times (1 Chronicles 12:32) – Pastor Tom Ascol To follow Christ faithfully in the world we must be aware of the peculiar temptations and challenges that our day presents to us. Rightly assessing the particular ways that the world suppresses the truth will help us become better equipped to stand firm in the faith.
Second session: 10:00 a.m.* Contending for the Blessing of Maleness, Femaleness and God’s Design for Marriage (Genesis 1) — Pastor Tedd MathisOne of the great challenges of our day is a distorted view of sexuality and marriage being promoted as good. And one of the greatest ways Christians influence the world for good is recognizing and living out the blessing ordained from the beginning.
Lunch break (enjoy Canon City’s variety of restaurants, or bring a sack lunch!)
Third session: 1:00 p.m.* A Call to Reject Hollow and Deceptive Philosophies (Colossians 2:8-9) – Pastor Tom Ascol
Fourth session: 2:30 p.m.* Brothers, We Have A Sufficient Scripture! — Pastor Cody Almanzar We live in a world defiled and distorted by the age old rejection that God has spoken. The Christian has a great unshakable rock under their feet when it comes to truth: The Holy Scriptures. No need to rely on feelings, seek dreams, visions, or a personal word from God. We can be steadily, relying on the timeless truths of the inspired Word of God
