The Churches of Christ in Christian Union

Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!
 
  

WBS Announces Fall Conference - Transform:ED

It is with great excitement that Wesley Biblical Seminary announces Transform:ED 2011! The Seminary's annual Fall conference on Christian leadership and spiritual formation will take place October 11-14 and features Dr. Gareth Lee Cockerill, Research Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Wesley Biblical Seminary, as the distinguished Chamberlain Holiness lecturer.  The conference will take place on the beautiful campus of Wesley Biblical Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi.

Conference participants will have the unique opportunity to delve into the richly textured message of the Book of Hebrews and gain fresh insight into matters pertaining to the life of holiness and the experience of sanctification with one who has devoted close to a quarter of a century to the study of Hebrews, and whose forthcoming commentary in the prestigious New International Commentary on the New Testament series will replace the work of F.F. Bruce, one of the leading Evangelical biblical scholars of the twentieth century. As we have come to expect from the work of Dr. Cockerill, this lecture series will both furnish a fresh lens and facilitate a faithful experience for following Christ in the contemporary world.

All conference events are free to the public, and attendees wishing to earn (2) continuing education units can do so for a flat fee of $25.

Key events of this year's conference include:

-The Chamberlain Holiness Lectures
-WBS Academic Convocation
-WBS faculty forum presentations
-Breakout group sessions
-Dynamic worship and significant fellowship opportunities

Complete details, including electronic registration*, can be found on the Transform:ED 2011 webpage at transformed.wbs.edu.

We cordially invite you to come experience a transforming week that you will never forget!

*All conference events are free to the public, but attendees are required to register. Attendees from the Jackson metro area are welcome to register at the door, but are encouraged to pre-register online.
