What Is a Reformed Christian & a Reformed Church? Public Lecture at Dordt College, Oct.24

 More people today are interested in "Reformed Christianity." This is due in part to a movement called "The New Calvinism", which TIME magazine has called one of the most influential ideas in the world today. Other people have always identified themselves as Reformed Christians, but perhaps have long forgotten what that really means.

What makes a Christian a Reformed Christian, and what makes a church a Reformed church? Come to the BJ Haan auditorium on the campus of Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA on Friday, October 24 at 7:30pm to explore this topic. Prof.Barry Gritters (Practical Theology and NT Studies, PRC Seminary) will be our speaker.

Sponsored by the PRC congregations in NW Iowa (Doon and Hull), Edgerton, MN, and Sioux Falls, SD. For more information, visit Calvary PRC's website.
