“Who Built the New Testament?”


Saturday, March 2, 2019 

10:00 a.m. 

Come hear Dr. Gerald Culley’s presentation on “Who

Built the New Testament." His lecture recounts his personal experience during the past year when he put together the pieces of a new view (at least for him) of the New Testament canon. In brief, it argues that the NT writings were nearly all completed before AD 70, and cites existing papyrus fragments of six of them from the 50’s AD, then it details clues from Scripture that suggest that the apostles themselves – Peter, Paul and John collected our 27 books and formed the canon as we know it. Questions about individual books like II Peter or Hebrews lingered among some believers, but the inspired decisions had been made before the apostles died.

This event is free to the public

“He refreshes my soul.  He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake.”  Psalm 23:3

Since the first Wednesday in March is Ash Wednesday and many churches will have services, our Refresh Service is scheduled for the next Wednesday, March 13.

If you cannot be with us at this Prayer Hour, our next time to be

together will be in April.

Join us for a respite from the cares of your day as we join together for a brief 45-50 minute time of prayer and music. 

Come for this midweek spiritual refreshment as we gather to pray

for the concerns of our world, our nation, our community, our

families and any other individuals or situations that are of concern to you. We will light candles as an act of lifting up those prayers to our God.
