John Branyan at RLCA (1 pm & 6 pm)

Join us on September 1st here at Rock Lake Christian Assembly as we welcome Comedian John Branyan!

At 1:00pm, John will be teaching us, in his comedic style, what the Bible says about family relationships..."How to be a Doormat".

And then at 6:00pm, John will perform a comedy show guaranteed to entertain the whole family! 

This event is free! 

John’s ‘Shakespeare’ version of The Three Little Pigs has been viewed millions of times, and his book “A Triune Tale of Diminutive Swine” is in its 3rd reprinting. John is featured on nine recorded comedy projects with people like Ken Davis, David Jeremiah, Ted Cunningham and Tim Hawkins. John and his wife, Lori, have four children and six grandchildren (so far).

When John Branyan stepped onto a tiny stage in the early 90’s, he thought his interest in comedy was just a phase; he thought he would get the whole thing out of his system.

But, more than 25 years later, he still loves making people laugh with his style of speaking that won’t leave a filthy residue.

“People didn’t invent laughter,” John says. “It was given to us by someone who knew we’d enjoy it.” And he never gets tired of sharing that gift with others. “Every show, my goal is to hurt people. Seriously. I want people’s jaws to ache. I want their sides to cramp up. I want them to experience dizziness from oxygen deprivation. When they are in pain, I’ve done my job.”

When he isn’t speaking or teaching, he’s playing board games with his family.

Willow Hwy, Lansing, MI.

Our 2018 theme is “Fearless Persuasion – Choosing Belief that Fuels Faith, not Fear.” We’re excited to announce that Shelly Larson will be our speaker this year! Shelly has a passion to share God’s Word as a faithful and true guide for every step. She has taught women’s Bible studies, children’s church, spoken at women’s events and retreats, as well as one-on-one small group discipleship. She’s been a workshop leader and the main speaker at GLCC’s “WOW” and “REFRESH”. She and her husband, Steve, are members of the 2/42 Community Church – Lansing Campus.

April 13 is the early registration deadline. If registered by that date, the cost is $15/person. Registrations received after that date will be $20/person. You can mail in your registration or go online to REGISTER. If registering a group of four or more, seating together will be reserved for you. Be sure to include the names of each individual and the church name that you are registering under. If others in your intended group register on their own, they will need to register under the same church name so that you can be seated together.
