The Lord's Supper from Foundation to Fulfillment
Epiclesis is planning a special seminar on The Lord's Supper-- and take note of this: We'll be returning to the beautiful (and local) Christ the King Retreat Center in Citrus Heights for the venue! The lovely outdoor spaces of the Center will be perfect for prayer and contemplation breaks throughout the course of the mini-retreat.
The seminar is also open to the Sacramento-area Christian community and childcare will be provided. This is not an overnight event.
The schedule will be a single session on Friday night (gathering at 6:30, then 7-9 PM), a session on Saturday morning (9 AM), lunch together at the Center, then an afternoon session (concluding at about 4 PM).
The retreat topic will be "Ancient-Future Feast: The Lord's Supper from Foundation to Fulfillment" and our world-class guest speaker will be Dr. Carl Peters.
Said Pastor Chris about Carl: "When we decided to do a retreat on the topic of the Lord's Supper, I knew at once that the best guest for the task was Dr. Peters. The breadth and depth of his knowledge on Communion, the instant command he has of related Scriptures, is amazing. That he is also a trusted and dear friend is going to make this retreat a great joy. Many of our folks already know Carl from his wonderful work with the Ancient-Future Faith Network, and the rest of our group will soon get to know that he is a wonderful, godly guy who loves Christ's church. Can't wait for you to meet him!"
Carl Peters is married to Reneé and has three sons: Daulton, Kendall, and Hayden. Having served churches in Michigan, Kentucky, Florida, and California, Carl is currently ministering at the Anchor Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky (since 2006). His gifts are utilized in the ministries of worship, music and discipleship. As a proponent of the Ancient-Future principles so brilliantly articulated by Dr. Robert Webber, Carl has given special attention in his church settings to the central place of covenant renewal as a defining factor in scripturally informed worship. Believing that the covenantal components of Word and Sign are meant to be twin peaks within the biblically prescribed “four-fold pattern” of worship (Gathering, Word, Table and Sending Forth), Carl has spent the last twelve years pursuing renewal in the vital nature of the Table in the Christian sacred assembly.
Costs and Other Details: The cost per person is $35 (fee covers the use of the facility and lunch on Saturday).
