FALL 2011

Well, it’s not too long now until school begins again. That also means it is time to regularly check our “Events” page, or sign up for automatic updates or “like” us on Facebook to keep up on the fall schedule. To start things off:

August 12 10 am-3pm  Nancy will be at the Raider Rally at GRCC with the GRCC Christian Fellowship.  Stop by and say hello. More importantly find out how you can be involved with our Caring for Creation Conference at GRCC Sept 28-29. We need folks to do all sorts of things, large and small. Our keynote speaker is Calvin DeWitt from the University of Wisconsin.

 

September 6 Nancy will be at Campus Life Night at GVSU. Find out what’s happening with True North on the Pew Campus!

 

Sept 28-29  Caring for Creation Conference

                               at GRCC, open to all students.

Our Keynote speaker is Calvin DeWitt from the University of Wisconsin.

Calvin DeWitt represents one of the best, most thoughtful evangelical Christian perspectives on environmental ethics. This perspective emphasizes the primacy of scripture as formative for Christian environmental ethics. Yet, DeWitt is also a serious environmental scientist, with a unique ability to bridge the gap between religion and science. DeWitt’s emphasis on the physical and chemical provisions of life exemplify his commitment to a vibrant science and religion dialogue that includes both biblical wisdom and also the discoveries of modern science.

We are planning lectures, nature walks, service project, and Bible study. We want student involvement in planning this event. We need folks to do “big picture” planning and also we need people to help with the details. If you are interested, we’ll have something you can do that fits your abilities and time commitments. Contact Nancy 616 821-0351, nancy@truenorthonline.org or on Facebook to talk about how you can be involved.
