Author's Forum with Dr. W. Robert Godfrey: April 13, 2018

Dr. W. Robert Godfrey will be our guest for a special Author’s Forum on Friday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m.  Join us for an excellent lecture on the Psalms and a time for Question and Answer to follow.

The Psalms are undeniably beautiful. They are also difficult, and readers often come away convinced that tremendous riches remain just beyond their grasp. In his book “Learning to Love the Psalms”, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey invites us to journey with him towards a greater understanding and love for these sacred verses. The timeless elegance of the Psalms, their depth of expression, and testimony to the greatness of God have enchanted and edified God's people for centuries. Learning to Love the Psalms is intended to help today's Christians share in that delight.

An Evening with Michael Horton presented by White Horse Inn: March 9, 2018

An Evening With Michael Horton.jpg

Join us on Friday, March 9 at 7:00 p.m. for an evening with Michael Horton.  Tickets are FREE but you do need to register.

We live in a time when religious affiliation is on the wane, and autonomy is on the rise. People increasingly believe that they are not accountable to anyone. They begin to see themselves as the measure of all things. In such a world, there are no ultimate standards of truth, goodness or beauty, but only subjective preferences which is why many have come to believe in our day “we are what we feel.” 

Join us as Mike Horton challenges us to ask ourselves whether we too have bought into many of the beliefs and assumptions of our contemporary culture, with its stress on consumer preference and individual autonomy. This message of hope reorients our hearts and encourages us to raise our eyes to heaven.
