This conference is our annual gathering of our local Antioch New England churches to worship Jesus, and hear from the Lord together how to live intentional, missional lives. Our theme this year is More Like Jesus, and we will explore what it looks like to walk, talk, and be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ.

We are offering a virtual option for those who can not attend in person (link to view will be emailed to pre-registered virtual viewers on the day of the conference).
On January 30th, we will be participating in Serve Sunday! We will gather at Ayers at 10:00 for a time of worship and will then be dismissed to take part in various service projects at the school.

Old Testament Course
Sundays beginning February 6th, 8:30-9:30 am
At first glance to the modern Western reader, some Old Testament passages can seem mythical, violent, oppressive, or bewilderingly irrelevant. Consequently, these significant barriers to accessing the OT often lead to its neglect in the church, resulting in a less intelligible and compelling gospel. This six-week course aims to confront these gut reactions, wrestle with our questions, and suggest ways forward in coming to love God more by reckoning with hard passages in the OT Scriptures he has given us.
Topics: 1. Intro: Why the OT is hard and necessary; 2. Miracles; 3. Divine Judgment; 4. Holy War; 5. Patriarchy; 6. Law
