"Stop Saying the Church is Dying!" with Nadia Bolz-Weber

Tickets available beginning Monday, February 12 at 10:00 am!

On Tuesday, May 15 Arborlawn is delighted to host Lutheran author, pastor, and speaker, Nadia Bolz-Weber.

"The church is dying!" It's a phrase we hear within and outside of the church all too often. Average worship attendance keeps going down. The average age of regular church attendeees keeps going up. Professions of faith are far and few between. And yet, in the midst of what seems like terrible news, God keeps showing up. New faith communities and creative ways of being church keep forming. People who feel lost, unwanted, or leftout keep being found.

Stop saying the church is dying! 

Join Nadia Bolz-Weber for this one-night only event, as she brings to light some of the beautiful and creative ways in which the church is not only alive, but thriving.

NADIA BOLZ-WEBER is the author of two New York Times bestselling memoirs: Pastrix; The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint (2013) and Accidental Saints; Finding God in All the Wrong People (2015).
