Salutations in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. On behalf of the leadership of the Kibby Street Church of Christ, we want to express our excitement and encouragement God has made possible for us to be the host congregation for the 46th annual Ohio State Lectureship in 2019.

This lectureship will commence on Friday morning May 24 and will conclude Sunday morning May 26 after worship.

Our selected lectureship theme is: “Showing by The Scriptures.” Eighteen (18) biblically sound sermons from the Bible will be proclaimed during the three (3) days of the lectureship. There will be:

  1. 7 Break-out sessions, 4 on Friday and 3 on Saturday dealing with:
    1. Christian Teens Summit
    2. Singles Seminar
    3. Married Couples Seminar
    4. Parenting Extra-Curriculum Children
    5. A Parent’s Forum, and a Ladies’ Forum.
  2. There will also be an Open Forum on Saturday afternoon.
  3. On Saturday evening there will be a Banquet Dinner and a proclamation of the gospel by our Keynote Speaker Gale Nelson.

The 2019 Ohio State Lectureship is a statewide opportunity for faithful brethren in the churches of Christ to commune together in true biblical fellowship, sound doctrinal preaching, teaching, and practice, and biblical edification through power of the Holy Word of God.  

We are asking you to carefully and prayerfully please help to make this gospel endeavor to be all that it can be!   If your congregation should have any questions pertaining the Ohio State Lectureship 2019 please call or text me at 513-227-4673 or at our church office at 419-224-1251.

In Christ,

Kevin L. Berry
