Back to the Altar

June 9, 2024

Now more than ever, God’s people will be effective doing the will of God in direct proportion to the time they spend in His presence. In a time of great social upheaval, widespread immorality, and rising hatred, we can afford neither to be disconnected from God nor to be lacking in the power of the Holy Spirit. This presentation is a call to come back to the place where we are transformed and renewed for God’s mission. It is a call Back to the Altar!

Eric Walsh

Social Unrest and Prophecy

June 10-11, 2024

Social unrest is everywhere, destabilizing society and making the world a more dangerous place. In a world where sin has caused so much pain and suffering there is a desire to protect the weak and avenge the wronged. However, Satan has a plan to use this desire to counteract the work of God. In the institutions of higher learning children are being introduce to spiritualism in the guise of progress. In this message we look at the deceptions and the truth and how we as Christians should prepare for what is coming. Walsh will also share his testimony of one raised in the church and who drifted into a revolutionary mindset because of the hatred he experienced. Hatred like violence is contagious and the people of God must develop immunity to it. Walsh learned much of the dark side of modern “liberation” movements. This message uncovers the deception Satan uses to lead people away through racial politics and describes how God brought him back.

Dr. Eric Walsh is a graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine and Loma Linda University School of Public Health where he received his masters and doctorate in public health. His most important educational experience was his time at Oakwood University. He has served two United States presidents, George W. Bush and Barak Obama, as an advisor on HIV/AIDS. Dr. Walsh has served at several churches as an associate pastor. He is now a practicing physician and health care administrator. He travels the globe speaking on many subjects. His wife Jacqueline is his partner in ministry and his best friend.

Sabbath Concerts

Emmanuel Quartet

June 8, 2024 at 3:00 pm

Emmanuel means “God with us”.

The Emmanuel Quartet is an acapella gospel group which began in 1989 as the “Highland Academy Men’s Quartet.” In 1993 the quartet’s name was changed and The Emmanuel Quartet was born.

The quartet’s concerts are 100% acapella, featuring barbershop-style harmonies and a smooth blend of voices. The members of the quartet are not only musicians by desire, but also ministers of the gospel through music. The mission of the quartet is to reflect God’s love through music, reminding His people that He is with us and that Jesus is returning soon. Over the years, the faces have changed but the smooth harmonies and genuine spiritual message remain.

The quartet tours the United States presenting concerts to audiences of all ages and religious affiliations. They’ve also traveled internationally, participating in several evangelistic events in Indonesia, Philippines, and Guam. The quartet’s concerts are presented in a manner that would complement any Christian program or event.

Seminar Speakers

Grandparenting: Giving Our Grandchildren a Grand View of God

God’s ideal for grandparents has been marred by a world filled with sin. His original plan has been pushed out of the picture and society has blurred the clarity of the role that we, as grandparents, have been called to fill. The culture’s distracting noise screams loudly to grandparents, calling them to a life of indulgence with their grandchild while God has given them a much higher calling – that of being disciple-makers. It’s time we understand that we are a vital part of fulfilling the gospel commission as we have been God-ordained to give our grandchildren a GRAND view of God! In this seminar we will look at research, practical ideas, and have daily discussion as we explore the God-given role of grandparenting.

Claudio Consuegra and his wife, Pam, are the proud of grandparents of two little ones with whom he laughs, plays, and shares Jesus since retiring as the North American Division Family Ministries Director.

Your Beautiful Mind

There’s no such thing as an average brain or an ordinary mind. Each one of us was designed with a unique personality, purpose, and place in God’s heart. But to reach our individual potential, we need to recognize the value of our minds and learn to take good care of them.

This seminar will provide practical solutions for enhancing mental wellness and cognitive performance. You will be reminded of your inherent value, encouraged to heal from toxic shame and distorted thinking, educated about the impact of various habits and virtues on mental health, encouraged to reflect on your God-given purpose, and taught how to incorporate stress management techniques into your devotional time.

Elise Harboldt has a masters degree in biblical counseling. She is currently completing a masters in religion at Southern Adventist University, researching animal welfare in Ellen White’s writings. Elise is also a registered nurse, with a background in mental health and lifestyle medicine. She believes that God cares deeply about human flourishing, and she wants to help people flourish too.

smHEARTER Experience: Action with Reason

God created us as whole beings – body (physical), mind (mental), and soul (spiritual). Great news! Exercising harder is not smarter! You can teach your system to thrive at the cellular level while warding off cardiometabolic diseases. This seminar workshop walks you through easy steps to start and continue a daily balanced active lifestyle.

Harold Mayer, PhD, MPH, is professor of Corporate and Community Health, School of Health and Kinesiology at Southern Adventist University (SAU), Collegedale, Tennessee. Dr. Mayer’s passion is helping the general population to become active and healthy. He has dedicated his life to helping individuals of all ages and conditions to live an active lifestyle.

The Rise of Spiritualism and the Occult

The occult has crept in to all aspects of society. Even in the church many are being lulled to sleep by demonic doctrines. As the world is entertained most have no idea of how Satan is working to influence minds through music, Hollywood, and social media. Even some parts of the social justice movement has spiritualism as it’s under pining. This last day deception will be unmasked as we look at the importance of knowing God’s character to counteract deception.

Children and Youth Activities

Destination Dig: Adventures in the Bible

Children ages 4-12 are invited to explore a Bible land archaeology dig site. Each day, young archaeologists will find and study pieces of the past to explore who Jesus is and discover that the Bible is true. Along the way, they will uncover a God who wonderfully reveals Himself when we seek and search for Him with all of our hearts (Jeremiah 29:13.) Fun afternoon recreation activities are planned. Evenings at the “dig site” include music, games, and thrilling stories.

Plugged In

Do you make sure your phone is always charged and ready to go? We make sure that our devices are plugged because we don’t want them to run out of power and not be able to use them. But what about ourselves? Are we plugged into the Power Source that will keep us charged and fulfilling our purpose? Earliteens will explore how to plug in, stay plugged in, and help others plug in to our true source of strength—God. We’ll also plug into fun activities like lake day and games, as well as plug in others through service projects.

Rediscovering Jesus

Reconnecting with Jesus at the Altar involves deepening our personal connection with Him through prayer and studying scripture. High school aged teens will delve into the characteristics of Jesus as revealed through His miracles and interactions during His time on earth. Our focus will be showcasing the beauty of Jesus and the significance of aligning ourselves with Him. John 12:32 emphasizes Jesus’ promise to draw all people to Himself when He is lifted up–by lifting up Jesus, we aim to ignite a greater desire in the lives of our youth to prioritize their time at the altar. Each day’s activities include games, icebreakers, and focus on exploring Jesus’ character while offering practical ways to connect with Him on a daily basis.
