Westminster Presbyterian to Host Special Session on Immigration

at 2019 Missions Conference

EVENT DATE:         Wednesday, Feb. 20, through Sunday, Feb. 24, 2019

CONTACT:   Joshua Light, Assistant Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian (423) 283-4643

Westminster Presbyterian Church in Johnson City will host Christian missionaries from across the globe and around the country—including those on the “front lines” ministering to immigrants and dealing with cultural issues—during the church’s annual missions conference.

The keynote speaker for Sunday morning Sunday School and worship is Paul Hahn, the coordinator of Mission to North America (MNA)—a mission organization of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) giving leadership and direction to church planting, church renewal and missional partnerships in the United States and Canada.

The conference theme, “That ALL may know HIM,” relates to Bible verse 1 Kings 8:60, when King Solomon blessed the people of Israel and encouraged them to be wholly true to the Lord and walk in His ways, so “that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no other.”

The conference kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 20, at 5:45 p.m. with dinner in the church’s fellowship hall. On Friday evening, a panel discussion on missionaries’ response to immigration will begin at 6:30 p.m., with dessert afterward. Saturday activities will include an 8 a.m. men’s session, a brunch for all at 10 a.m., and women’s session beginning at 11 a.m. For dinner, dessert, and brunch reservations, please call the church at (423) 283-4643.

On Feb. 24, Sunday School begins at 9:15 a.m. in the fellowship hall with all youth and adult classes combined. Worship begins in the sanctuary at 10:30 a.m., with Hahn preaching.

Westminster Presbyterian Church is located at 2343 Knob Creek Road. For more information, go to https://westminjc.org.
