2016 Lewis Preaching Series features Dr. Ray Jones
Published 12:00 am Saturday, February 13, 2016
In 2006 First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury began the Lewis Preaching Series to honor the 24 years of service to the church by Dr. Robert M. Lewis. The purpose is to invite well-known preachers so that the community may hear and learn from these treasures of the church.
February 20 and 21 we will welcome Dr. Ray Jones, the Associate Director of Evangelism for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). He has served the church as a pastor for 30 years in congregations in Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. For the past six years he has served the denomination through the Presbyterian Mission Agency.
Ray has a heart for helping people come to know and grow in their love of God in Jesus Christ. Through Ray’s guidance, The Presbyterian Mission Agency is producing curriculum to encourage and equip churches to help people live into their stories of faith, grow as followers of Christ, and see themselves as missionaries to their communities.
Ray believes that renewal in the church begins with God’s radical, unconditional love revealed in Jesus.
On Saturday, Feb. 20, Ray will speak from 9-11 a.m. in fellowship hall. His subject will be “The Gospel and Evangelism.” He will preach at all three worship services on Sunday, Feb. 21, on “Beautiful Feet.” Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. there will be a complimentary dinner followed by Ray’s talk on “The Ministry of Digging Wells.”
Please register for Sunday evening by Feb. 15 by calling the church office at 704-636-1321 or visit our website at www.salisburyfirstpres.org
