CCNYC> Seriously Good Things...

I rarely tell you what we are doing at Christ Church New York City. Here are some seriously good things we are doing in the next few weeks.

1. NATHAN TASKER in Concert (on Sunday Evening October 26.)
Nathan Tasker will be a guest worship leader and performer at the Evening Service on Sunday November 26. Nathan is one of Australia’s premier Singer-Songwriters. He now lives in Nashville, TN. Nathan is a friend of Christ Church, and is looking forward to being with us. Nathan and our team are working to create an event that you can bring your friends too: good music with a good message. 6PM at 111 East 87th Street.

2. STUDENT TEACH-IN on the Book of Revelation (November 1)
Laurel and I invite students to a packed morning of teaching and discussion on the Revelation given to St John. We call it a ‘Teach In’. Its a group of studies called: ‘Revelation: The Revolution will not be Televised’. We’ll provide good food, and good discussion that touches life. Revelation is, on one hand, a mysterious book. But on the other hand (like many mysteries), it yield’s its treasure to the thirsty. 9AM-1PM. Email me for a personal invitation. Only the first 20 will be allowed.

3. ASHLEY NULL at 'Focus on Ministry' (Monday, November 10)

The first conference is to be held on Monday, 11/ 10 from 9:00AM to 3:00PM at the 111 East 87th Street.

Sounds hunky dory Justin.

Are you publishing the Revelation + Cranmer stuff online for the geographically challenged?

And why the cap on 20 people at the Love In?

Justin said...

Mark -- re the cap on 20 peeps: have you seen a NYC Apartment???

:)

Mark said...

Gotcha Justin.

(I've seen Seinfeld about million times does that count?)

Justin said...

Indeed it does, Mark. Indeed it does.

Hello, Justin. So great to see such a nice lineup of events coming up at Christ Church! Do let me know if you have any handouts for your Revelation lesson. (And, kudos to Laurel and you for accommodating 20 guests--that's hospitality.)

pietas said...

This is Matthew, by the way. In case you are wondering (and it is not obvious from my blog ID).

Justin said...

Hey MAtt -- There'll be notes. Not sure if they will be decipherable outside of the event. But it will be fun.

Matthew said...

Great, Justin. I am looking forward to following your note.

Justin said...

Oh -- Matthew from RPC! (I thought this was Matthew from NYU.)

Hope the Beta group is going well, Matthew.

Matthew said...

I should have guessed that you know lots of Matthews! Yes, my Beta Group seems to be going well so far. Thanks for asking.

Mark said...

Sorry for eavesdropping and excuse my ignorance. But what's a beta group? Is it a step down from an alpha one? Or one that's in a period of testing?

Matthew said...

Hello, Mark. Thanks for eavesdropping (which is hard to do for open comments)! As you guessed, Beta Groups are newly-formed, seven-week small group at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC. For more info, take a look at:

Makes perfect sense Matthew. Thanks for filling me in.
