Christian Piatt, our guest speaker this weekend for our VOICES conference, will join us Sunday morning! He will be speaking on current events during Adult Faith Formation time, which starts at 9:30 am in the Gathering Space, and then will be preaching in our worship service at 10:30 am in the North Sanctuary. His sermon is Boat Builders or Jesus Followers, based on Matthew 14:22-33.
Author. Speaker. Antagonist. God Nerd. Jim Wallis of Sojourners calls Piatt “one of the smartest and most provocative young voices we have.”
