On Aug. 26 the New Haven Adventist Church in Overland Park, Kansas launched a series of meetings presented by Pastor Lee Venden titled The Revelation of Whom? The meetings, which ran until Sept. 3, focused on the book of Revelation, and people from all corners of the Kansas City area attended. Each evening meeting started with a meal provided and prepared by volunteers. Eating together before each gathering contributed to the sense of community that was experienced during the week.

At each presentation Pastor Venden preached from the book of Revelation, highlighting core themes and beliefs and sharing how and where Jesus could be found in each topic. One member shared, “Pastor Venden brought life to the beliefs I have been taught my whole life.”

The meetings were well attended and New Haven is excited to continue sharing Jesus with all who walked through the doors during the series and will continue to be a place where all people can experience the revelation of Jesus.
