TAKE HEART! I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD
With these transcendent words of Christ from John 16:33 in mind and in our hearts, the Christian Community in Argentina takes great pleasure in inviting you to the sixth Inter-American Congress from July 23 - 31, 2016. It will take place at a Franciscan residence in the beautiful hills of Córdoba, near the city of Carlos Paz. This year’s conference continues the impulse begun in 1995, when the first one took place in Kimberton, Pennsylvania. With each conference, we are building bridges amongst the widely dispersed congregations in both Americas and uniting hearts of members, friends and those interested in the Christian Community, through shared experiences and personal encounters.
