June 4th, 2020 @ 7-8:30pm CT

June 5th, 2020 @ 10:00am-11:30pm CT

The Apostle Paul declares, “for the message of the cross is foolishness.” What does this foolish cross have to say to the church in the midst of a pandemic? In a Western context defined by power, competency, and influence, how does the crucifixion shape our suffering together? How does a cross-shaped mission position the church in the world reeling from COVID-19?

Join renowned pastor and theologian Fleming Rutledge as she casts a vision for a church engaged with the world.




Free. Registration is required.
