Just wanted to give you a heads up and invite for two events coming up in the near future (if God wills!):

First, it’s been a while since we’ve had what we call our “Combined Worship Service,” where we invite members of all the churches who participate in the Common Slaves to come together for an evening of simple worship: Singing, Scripture, Preaching, and Fellowship around a meal. We’ve got one coming (finally!), so here’s the details:

Date: Sunday, August 29, 2021
Time: 4:30PM
Place: Quamba Baptist Church
Speaker: Dr. Ardel Caneday
For a text, we’ve assigned Dr. Caneday The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant from Matthew 18:21-35

Secondly, our fall conference is coming up in October. This one is generally geared toward pastors and elders, though any who wish to attend are certainly welcome. We’re getting back to the basics of Reformed theology, and have assigned five of our own members each a different petal of the TULIP, concluded by a pastoral exhortation from the recently retired Dr. Kevin Carr. More details to follow, and even the scant ones I’m offering now are subject to change:
