This channel has the complete 9:30 am Sunday Worship Sermon for First Presbyterian Church McMinnville Oregon for July 28, 2013, the 10th Sunday after Pentecost. The sermon done by Dr. Fred Van Gorkam is called "The Surpassing Greatness of Knowing Christ." Fred went to Ethiopia in 1983 with Christian Veterinary Mission. After completing the Somali Returning Refugee Project, he did veterinary and famine relief work in the north central highlands of Ethopia. Fred now serves as CVM Africa Director providing leadership as part of a team to recruit, train, place and mentor missionaries called to the people of Africa. Fred uses his experiences in Africa to give us an exciting sermon that illustrates to us that there is no greater thing in life surpassing the knowing of Christ.
