TODAY some of our men attended the Biblical Manhood Conference in St. Joseph, and we had an excellent time. OUr small group joined with approximately 170 men from the area to lift up the name of Jesus, hear the word of God proclaimed from the main speaker, Dr. Hershael York, and attend breakout sessions on a variety or topics. What a blessing the day was! it was great to be with some of our men, and I am looking forward to next year

READ THROUGH THE BIBLE schedule is attached. We are on Week 35.
BONUS: A book that I recommended during my breakout session at the men's conference this morning is entitled Finding Grace in the Face of Dementia by John Dunlop, MD. This title from Crossway appears to be a valuable resource for folks who are dealing with this important subject in one way or another. I have not read it yet, but it comes highly recommended by Dennis Rainey of Family Life Today and D. A. Carson, professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I am placing this book in our church library so that it will be available to you.
See you in church!
Grace and peace,
Pastor Greg Dixon
