Together for the Nations: A Conference on Global Missions & Local Church Cooperation

September 12-15 (Sunday through Wednesday night) our church will be joining with Ryker’s Ridge Baptist and Calvary Baptist of Madison to hold a missions conference called “Together for the Nations.”  The conference consists of four evening services.  The Sunday and Monday night services will be at Calvary—Sunday at 6:00 and Monday at 6:30.  The Tuesday and Wednesday night services will be at Ryker’s Ridge—both at 6:30.  After the service Wednesday night, there will be a complementary dinner held at Ryker’s.  There is a great line-up of speakers, all of whom have been serving as missionaries for years.  Please plan on attending and bringing a friend!  Here’s some information about two of the four speakers.
