Dear Friends,

Independence Day is upon us yet again. For most, the holiday is about enjoying time with friends and family or just “partying.” For others this is also accompanied by a ceremonial patriotism with flags, parades, thanking the troops, and a vague sense of respect for the founding fathers. Yet regardless how we celebrate it, it is clear that our liberties are being abused and lost.

Why is this happening? Is a wider and deeper sense of patriotism the answer? Perhaps a deeper understanding of Founders? Or is there an even more fundamental reason for our present condition?

On Tuesday, June 30, Pastor Ken Griesbach will take of brief look at four preachers from America’s past who were wonderfully used in the lives of the common people and whose views forged the making of our nation; specifically Roger Williams, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, and John Leland. Through this presentation, you will not only learn the stories of these long-forgotten, yet highly-influential men of the founding era, but you will also understand better how liberty is truly sustained.

Please join us. We meet at noon, order lunch, start at 12:05 p.m., and end at 1:05 p.m. Admission is free. Meal purchases and donations are encouraged.

"Guard against those men who make a great noise about religion, in choosing representatives. It is electioneering intrigue. If they knew the nature and worth of religion, they would not debauch it to such shameful purposes. If pure religion is the criterion to denominate candidates, those that make a noise about it must be rejected, for their wrangle about it proves that they are void of it."
-- Pastor John Leland, speaking in celebration of Independence Day, 1802
