Classis PNW Atonement Summit

June 15, 2018, First CRC, Mount Vernon, WA

On Friday, June 15, over fifty participants gathered at First CRC in Mount Vernon, WA to learn about the doctrine of the Atonement. The goal was to deepen our understanding of the theology of the atonement as well as consider ways in which to communicate the riches of this theology in our local ministry settings. The sessions were led by Dr. Ronald Feenstra, Academic Dean and Professor of Systematic and Philosophical Theology at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI.
