The Lincoln Avenue Church of Christ hosted the annual North Central Ohio Christian Lectureship November 12, 2005. "God's Glorious Church" was the theme of the lectureship this year. Nearly 100 people from all across the state of Ohio and throughout the Ohio Valley were in attendance to hear lessons from God's word regarding the church of our Lord given by faithful and capable speakers.
The day began with spirited congregational singing and a lesson by Albert Farley from Salem, West Virginia, on "The New Testament Church in Prophecy." Brother Elmer "Hoover" Spence of Mentor, Ohio, then spoke powerfully on the subject "The Kingdom of God Is at Hand."
After a lunch prepared by the ladies of the church the afternoon began in the same manner as did the morning session with a "joyful noise to the Lord" with brother William Skinner of Bucyrus, Ohio leading the congregational singing for the event.
Brother James E. Farley, the evangelist at Crum, West Virginia, boldly presented a wonderful lesson on the subject, "The First Century Church, Falling Away, and Dark Ages." Brother Rick Tincher of Mount Vernon, Ohio, gave the final lesson entitled, "The Restoration Movement, the Apostasy of 1906, and the Lord's Church in the 21st Century."
The lectureship ended with Rick Morris, the evangelist of the Lincoln Avenue Church of Christ offering the Lord's invitation. The Lincoln Avenue Church of Christ would like to cordially thank everyone who helped make this lectureship such a great success! -400 Lincoln Ave., Bucyrus, OH 44820.
