Adventist Engaged Encounter Feb 18-20

Adventist Engaged Encounter (AEE) is a fun weekend intensive workshop for seriously dating, engaged, and newlywed couples. AEE is not group therapy, no sharing with the group required, and it IS a private, safe environment with 12 guided sessions by marriage mentors. AEE is a great tool to add to your relationship toolbox, but AEE IS NOT CRISIS COUNSELING. AEE IS designed to help you take your relationship to the next level of love, connection, focus, and commitment. The weekend of Meetings will be held in the lower level of Nethery Hall starting at 6:30 PM 2/18/22.

 

New Winter Sabbath Journey: "A Banner Unfurled"

I hope you will join us (online or in-person) for a worship journey we may never have been on together. "A Banner Unfurled" will be a fresh plunge into the shining truth about our Creator-Savior and His gift of the seventh day, the Sabbath, to humanity.
We won’t be arguing over which Day—we already know. But we will be creatively exploring how existentially/experientially the treasure of Christ embedded in the Day can reignite our pandemic-shadowed lives with new light and meaning this New Year.

I'm praying we'll never be the same again as a result of this exploration. And I hope you invite your friends and family to join us.

For your handy reference here is the lineup of our Pioneer winter Sabbaths in 2022:

  • January 8 – "Killing Time"
  • January 15  – "'The Peace of Wild Things'"
  • January 22  – "'All the Light We Cannot See'"
  • January 29 –  Andrews University Student Association Sabbath
  • February 5  – "Familiarity Breeds Contempt"
  • February 12 – "'My Soul Followeth Hard After Thee'"
  • February 19 – Pathfinder Sabbath
  • February 26 – "'The Things on Which the Light Falls'"
  • March 5 – "By Playing Silly Games"

–Pastor Dwight
