Bringing Heaven to Earth

Have you ever wondered what it means to pray “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”? Are you seeking a connection between your life of faith and God’s plan for creation? Our summer intern, Reed McNitzky, will be exploring these questions with our congregation and in conversation with Josh Ross and Jonathan Storment’s book Bringing Heaven to Earth.

The first session of Reed McNitzky’s book study will be on Wednesday, July 6, at 10:00 am in Room 123. This first class will cover the introduction and chapters 1–4 of Bringing Heaven to Earth (by Josh Ross and Jonathan Storment). The Koinonia Sunday School class will begin studying this book on Sunday, July 10.  To purchase a book or to inquire further, contact Reed at
