DeHaven LOGOS Fund Exceeds Fundraising Goal!

Posted by Liz Perraud at

Thank you! We did it! In 2016 the GenOn Board of Directors approved the creation of the DeHaven LOGOS Fund to support Christian churches who have established or wish to start a LOGOS weekly ministry as a means of being an intergenerational church, yet have limited funds to do so.  Thomas Kanavy, member of the GenOn Board of Directors says this of the importance of the DeHaven fund, “LOGOS builds thriving churches and we have 50 years of evidence to support this claim.  The DeHaven Grant was introduced as a way to bring LOGOS into financially distressed communities and to...

So, when our LOGOS schedule allowed for adding a designated "Worship Skills" time, I wanted it to be focused on more than just music, which has been our norm.

If Wednesday is the new Sunday then what does that mean for Christian education?

Posted by Liz Perraud at

There was a day when schools and communities guarded Wednesday night as “church night.” Rarely were school sports practices or evening events scheduled. And then there wasn’t that day. Maybe the practice was more of a Bible Belt thing—most common in the south and midwest states. Growing up in the DC area I have no memory of Wednesday night reserved for religious reasons and it certainly wasn’t the case for my children. We all know about the gradual erosion of Sunday morning as “sacred” time. About 20 years ago, our soccer club ruled that no game would start prior to...
