2018 Gospel Intensive Learning Day with Dr. Gary Deddo
May 26, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
This is an invitation to you to attend our Annual Gospel Intensive Learning Day with Dr. Gary Deddo in the GCI NorthEast region on Saturday, May 26th, 2018 FROM 10AM – 4PM.
It will be hosted here, at New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Maryland, 3409 Lord Baltimore Drive, Windsor Mill, Maryland.
This year will make the 5th Gospel Intensive event led by Dr. Deddo here. Dr. Deddo is Special Assistant to GCI President Joseph Tkach. He is the president of Grace Communion Seminary and is the doctrinal advisor of GCI.
There is no cost to attend! We do need a count of people who plan to come so we can prepare properly regarding resources and food. Please sign up at your local church or call us at: 410-496-3409. You may invite guests and bring them, too, but what is important is that they are noted and counted in on our sign-up list! We plan to take up a Free-will offering for Dr. Deddo as usual. There will, again, be a donation basket available for your free and willing help to supplement the cost of lunch if you desire.
Dr. Deddo will also be our special guest speaker here at New Life Fellowship on Sunday, May 27th, with a Gospel Message reinforcing the Gospel proclaimed at Saturday’s Intensive. Refreshments and fellowship will occur after his preaching. All are invited to participate with us that day! Our service begins at 10:30am, Sunday morning.
(If there are those who wish to stay overnight in the area, they can search for hotels in the Windsor Mill, Catonsville, and Owings Mills area, which are close to our Church bldg.)
Here is Dr. Deddo’s specific purpose for this Intensive:
“Jesus Christ, Lord of all of Life”
We will look into what it means to live as if Jesus Christ is Lord of all of life. It’s often said that we are to live in the world but not of the world. But what does that mean? How can we be the church in our secular world? How can we be witnesses to the Triune God and his coming Kingdom in “this present evil age,” as Paul calls it? Is the church really called and equipped to “turn the world upside down” or right side up? What kinds of difference can we individually and as a church make in our communities? Our schools? Our work? Our families? Is the church to be a social change organization? What does the Gospel have to say to our culture? We will especially focus on exploring what can we do with our education and vocations. We will not come up with all the answers but gain some very specific biblically based and theologically grounded direction.
