We will host Rev. Roger Ray from Springfield Missouri as our guest minister at NACCP on Sunday 7 April. Later that day he will present two lectures at Boulevard Baptist Church as the guest speaker for Anderson Forum for Progressive Theology (AFPT). More about those lectures is available here: https://afptonline.org. Roger’s sermons are available as transcripts, videos or podcast on-line from his church’s website www.spfccc.org.
Roger’s church in Springfield is very similar to NACCP: it is very progressive church in a very conservative setting. “In pew” attendance there is similar to NACCP attendance - 35 to 50 per week. What distinguishes Roger is his on-line following. His sermons are downloaded ~ 15,000 times per week. He receives encouragement and support from many outside his local congregation to “keep preaching”. We are fortunate to have him as our guest on 7 April.
We will host our regular First Sunday Potluck after worship that day and all those interested in talking to Roger will have a chance to do so. Mark your calendars to attend worship (and lunch!) at NACCP on 7 April at 10:15 AM.
