Join us for the summer Christ in the City events!
Wednesday nights at Pillar Church we will hold another summer series of conversations on faith and culture. These talks are geared towards college students and emerging adults but everyone is invited.
The talks are interactive/discussion-oriented events. We seek to provide an atmosphere of open dialogue while seeking to discern how the Gospel of Christ bears on all of life. Childcare will be provided from 6:45pm to 8:00pm.
A free, light supper is offered at 6pm.
The recordings of the lectures are available as podcasts on iTunes.
