We are 4Amarillo—a collaboration between First Presbyterian Church, Polk Street United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church, and Central Church of Christ. We want to invite you to the 4Amarillo Preaching Conference in March. Full details below, including a link to register. We hope you'll join us!
March 1 - 2, 2020 | Amarillo, TX | All welcome | FREE
The truth of the Resurrection of Jesus matters—maybe now more than ever.
This free event is open to all preachers, all church leaders, all church members, and anyone eager to reawaken within themselves and their congregations the deep urgency and immense joy in the Resurrection of Jesus.
This is a two-day event for everyone. Four of the best communicators in our fellowships will join us for worship, preach their favorite Easter sermons, and share their own insights and experiences in proclaiming the Good News.
What will the two days look like?
On Sunday morning, each of the four preachers will preach at his or her host congregation in downtown Amarillo.
On Sunday evening, we will offer a 4Amarillo worship experience that will feature all four speakers in a panel discussion answering the "So what?" of Easter. What does the truth of Easter mean to a broken world? Why should our city, this country, the world, care at all about the resurrection of Jesus? How does the resurrection make a difference to anybody? Come for the inspiring music, the ecumenical fellowship, and the important conversation.
On Monday, choose to come-and-go or come-and-stay. Breakfast and lunch are provided for this meaningful day of preaching and equipping, training and encouragement. Full details below.
