Upcoming Events

Christians and Culture

August 14-15, 2015

God created this world, but it doesn't seem so good right now. Politicians, musicians, and actors seem to be driving the bus when it comes to what's moral, fashionable, and reasonable. It seems like everything but a Christian worldview is accepted nowadays. How did the culture around us get to this point? Is there anything in the culture that's Christian? How are Christians to relate to such a world? Can we Really be not of the world when that's where we live? Should we just run away from it? There must be somewhere between becoming a monk or nun and just giving in to complete worldliness! We Christians are obviously in the world. So, it's high time that we learned what this world is all about and how Christians relate to it.

Spend a weekend learning about living in a secular world with Rev. Randy Blankschaen. Rev. Blankschaen is Pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Pensacola, FL.

Movies, Magic, Mystery, and Means

September 11-12, 2015

We live in a great time, with many movies geared for teen audiences! Films full of mystery and magic, like Harry Potter, Sherlock, The Avengers, and Inception amaze and entertain us. But where can we find miraculous signs that surpass magic, and reveal the true and ultimate mysteries of Christ?

Join Pastor Rich Heinz as we discuss movies and entertainment from our daily lives, comparing and contrasting to Christ, the faith He gives, and His means of grace that delivers His Gifts!

Pastor Heinz serves St. John's Lutheran Church in Chicago, Illinois and is the Worship Coordinator for Higher Things Conferences.
