Conference Week 2024: Unearth the Church


An Invitation from President Johnmark Camenga:

Conference 2024 will be here before you know it and I really hope that you’ll be able to be there for it. As we gather for this important time of business and fellowship and worship, we also gather so that we can learn together, grow together, and be commissioned together. This year, that learning, growing, and commissioning will be centered on what it means for the church to be unearthed and how we, as an unearthed church, are meant to live in covenant with each other and in service of the people Jesus places in our lives.

Conference 2024 will look a little different than it has in the past. There will still be plenty of time for business and fellowship and worship, but there will be a heavier focus on the learning and growing aspects. We will have a series of presentations and workshops and studies that focus on the following topics: The History/Mission of the Church, Confession/Repentance, Empathy, Self-Denial, Covenant, and many others. The goal is to help us to recover our foundation such that we are better equipped to live out Christ’s mission for his church.

So, you are invited. Indeed, you are needed. If we are to persist in this work as Seventh Day Baptists toward the advancement of the Kingdom, we need as many as possible to come so that we can learn, grow, and be commissioned together in the name of Jesus.

We are looking forward to seeing you July 21-28, 2024 @ West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, WV.

Sardines and Churches

Sardines and Churches

Sardines. They do not get a lot of positive press. Canned sardines smell, well, fishy. They were popular until the 1950s, and since then they have fallen off the menu. I have been told that the only cultural impact of sardines in North America is the history of places...

Unearth The Church

52 Weeks. And a Free Gift.

There are 52 weeks in a year. You are welcome for that novel update on the calendar. Stick with me though—living all 52 weeks is actually more complicated than it appears. How often is it that we live ‘in the future’ or ‘in the past’ rather than in the present week of...
