On August 18-20, 1848, exactly 165 years ago, the Pioneers of our movement held their first barn conference in David Arnold’s barn in Volney, New York. The Buchanan Seventh-day Adventist Church invites you to join us at our Barn Conference, August 23 and 24, as we relive the Pioneer experience and recall “the way the Lord has led us, and His teaching in our past history.”
Our speaker will be Dr. Merlin D. Burt, founding director of the integrated Center for Adventist Research at Andrews University. The topic Friday evening will be “The Everlasting Gospel”; Sabbath morning Sabbath School, “Organizing for Mission” (children’s Sabbath School available for ages 3-12); Church Service, “A Living Faith”; Sabbath afternoon, “Advent Hymns and Stories.” Lunch on Sabbath will be provided. Period clothing is encouraged.
Bus shuttle will be used from the church parking lot to the barn; reservations are required. For more information and to reserve a seat, call 269-471-4724 by August 16. If you are unable to attend, please be sure to call and cancel your reservation ASAP.
