The 2012 Homecoming line-up is ready! Are you?

"What's Right With The Church?"

The current age often seems dominated by pessimism.  There is a cynicism and skepticism against our major institutions, celebrities, politicians, professional athletes, and other people of prominence.  As children of God living in such an environment, we can be influenced by such attitudes.  Some have directed their pessimism toward the church.  Extremists from both sides are declaring its doom and demise.  There may be a temptation to critique what's wrong with the church.

Perhaps more than ever, we need to be reminded of the many things that are right with the church.  Though from the "human side" it is filled with sinners saved by grace, it is perfect in design, organization, mission, and message.  This year, the Bear Valley Lectures will devote itself to the theme, "What's Right With The Church?"  Join us as we consider the many things that are right with the Lord's church!

Be reminded.  Be edified.  Be encouraged to keep on keeping on!
