We have many ways we shape and nurture our faith and learning and I always encourage us to participate in both church school and worship. Therefore, I hope you will come to worship for Special Music Sunday as the choir leads us in the message using pieces from John Rutter’s Requiem.
Life Without John Calvin: Although Calvin’s personality and theology have few fans even within the PCUSA, his legacy of a muscular, active faith served Protestants well for 400 years. The influence of Anglicans, Presbyterians and Baptists, among others, on culture and politics has its roots in Calvinism. We welcome guest David Foxgrover who will lead us in an examination of Calvin’s life and influence during his years in Geneva and Strasburg. A graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary and Claremont Graduate School, Rev. Dr. Foxgrover served as the Secretary of the Calvin Studies Society and edited five volumes of CSS papers. He has taught at Rockford (IL) College, Regent College (London), Wheaton College and lectured on Islam at Elmhurst (IL) College. Ordained in the United Church of Christ, David has ministered as a college chaplain and pastor. David’s wife, Marsha, is a church and concert organist. The Foxgrovers have three adult children and six grandchildren. (Library)
