Clearnote Fellowship is excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2013 Summer Conference, "She is Our Mother," to be held July 5th and 6th in Bloomington, Indiana. The theme of this year's conference builds on the 2012 Summer Conference, "I Believe in God the Father Almighty."
Christians in America today reject the fatherhood of God by gagging His word and those who proclaim it. They also scoff at the truth that any true son of God must have the church as his mother. When elders are diligent in their care for the sheep, we often refuse their care, bleat, and run off—away from our mother!
In the 3rd century AD, Cyprian of Carthage wrote: “You cannot have God as your Father unless you have the church for your Mother.” In his Institutes, Calvin writes: "But because it is now our intention to discuss the visible church, let us learn even from the simple title of 'mother' how useful, indeed how necessary, it is that we should know her."
Useful and necessary, indeed! Christ's church is the mother of all those chosen by God for salvation so join us as we sit under preaching focussed on what our relationship should be to this Mother God has given us, and what it means for her to be reformed in our own age.
The Clearnote Summer Conference is like none other! Our habit is to preach the Word of God rather than to give lectures and talks. We welcome children... ages 0-14 years and have a full program for them that is planned and led by our wisest fathers and mothers. Your sons and daughters will love the conference and, we trust, will grow in their knowledge of our Lord Jesus and His precious Word. We provide several hearty home-cooked meals and foster true fellowship and unity of the church by bringing together Christians of all ages.
With God our Father and the Church our mother, the Clearnote Conference is always a loving and joyful and warmhearted family affair!
So, if you've left conferences counting how many seconds you were able to grab with the famous ones and who you're able to add to your database from your hard work networking, give yourself a break and be renewed in our Lord at the Clearnote Fellowship 2013 Summer Conference. This conference is for the entire body of Christ...man or woman, father or mother, husband or wife, young or old, single or married, young children or grown children or no children, pastor, elder, deacon, church member. Which is to say, this conference is for you!
Register now since the early-bird discount ends June 9th: $35 per adult, $5 per child. Because of space limitations, this year we're putting a limit on registration: 280 adults and 170 children. A word to the wise is sufficient.
