HISTORY AND THEOLOGY OF PIETISM AND WHY IT MATTERS IN 2021 - WEDNESDAYS AT 6:30PM (APRIL ONLY)
Join us for this learning lab (sponsored by Awaken Covenant Church) where Dr. Michelle Clifton-Soderstrom of North Park Seminary will explore the history of the Pietist movement, which birthed the Evangelical Covenant Church, and the theological commitments that make it unique. As we explore what's at the core of our identity, we find that Pietism is right there. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more together. There's nothing to prep for this event, just register and you'll receive the Zoom link.
