Adult Conference In Ohio
Our Faith: From Roots to Fruits to Seeds (Disciples Past, Present & Future)
The 2009 Adult Conference is June 15 – 19, 2009 at Northwest Christian Church, 1340 Fishinger Road, Columbus, OH 43221. It begins with registration from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Monday, June 15th and ends on Friday, June 19th at about 1:30 pm. More information and applications are located in the Narthex. Our journey at this year’s Adult Conference is all about faith. We will see glimpses of our history to help us discover what is that makes us who we are as Disciples, so we will have a clear of our identity today. Each day we will learn new ways to nurture our own faith and to be fruitful in our study and discussion sessions. By the time we leave the conference and return to our churches, we hope to have new seeds to sow as we move into the future.
