Fall 2019 Renew at Geist Community Church

9Marks of a Healthy Church

Friday evening, October 4th, 6:00-9:30pm
Saturday, October 5th, 9:00am-4:00pm


What is a “church?” What makes a church “healthy”? Are there certain characteristics of a church that determine its health?

Scripture gives clearly defined structure for the local church - for both the pulpit and the pew. In partnership with 9Marks and Indianapolis Theological Seminary, GCC’s fall Renew will look at the biblical practices for the local church. Throughout the weekend various pastors will teach on these key characteristics, and how you - no matter your role in your local assembly - are a vital part of supporting and encouraging these characteristics in your local church.

Registration is $15 by September 1st and $20 after September 1st.
(includes all materials, refreshments, and lunch on Saturday)
