The Apostle Peter wrote about the church that we are “...a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” in 1 Peter 2:9.

Peter’s words, in the early years of the 21st century, provoke this question: How do we best live out our faith during a time of confusion, emptiness and distraction? To help us contemplate a response, Os Guinness, author and social critic, has agreed to come to SLPC for a weekend of music, seminars, fellowship and preaching.  Os has written or edited more than 30 books, including The Call, Time for Truth, Unspeakable, The American Hour, A Free People’s Suicide, and The Global Public Square.  He is currently completing a book, Last Call for Liberty, on the crisis of the United States today. He lives with his wife Jenny in the Washington, D.C. area.


 

Community Good Top_Web

 

Community Good consists of talks, opportunities, and experiences at Springton Lake Presbyterian Church (SLPC). Community Good addresses needs and potentials both within our faith community, but also for the communities outside our church in which we live, work, and play. SLPC’s vision is to be an authentic Gospel fellowship that follows Jesus Christ for the good of our community, region and world—for today and future generations.

Our hope is to see Community Good as a launching point for conversations within the spheres of our lives. We believe that the Gospel is not something that causes us to hope for what is far off, but that the Gospel of Jesus gives us hope in the here-and-now. As Christians, we are called to view the world realistically for what it is as fallen, but also optimistically in the resurrection hope of Jesus Christ - that He will reclaim what is His and that he is even working through us now to bring a taste of His “Kingdom come... on earth even as it is in Heaven,” even as He has promised.
