Reformation Weekend 2022

Reformation Weekend 2022

Join us this year for our Reformation Weekend, October 28-30, 2022.

Why should we give attention to the Protestant Reformation? It could be argued that no single event in the last 500 years has done more to shape our modern world. Much of the liberty and prosperity of America and the Western world can be traced back to what happened in the 16th century.

Every year at Faith FPC, we set aside the last weekend of October to give consideration to our Protestant heritage, and we would like you and your family to enjoy this blessing with us.


Rev. Gavin Beers is a native of Northern Ireland and a graduate of the Free Church Seminary, Inverness, Scotland. From 2006 until 2018, Pastor Beers was the minister of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) congregation at Ayr, in the southwest of Scotland. He currently serves as the minister of the FCC’s first North Carolina, USA, congregation, Cornerstone Presbyterian Church. Pastor Beers is married and is the father of six children.

Dr. Mark Sidwell earned a BA in History from Bob Jones University and the MA and PhD in Church History from the BJU Seminary and Graduate School of Religion. He has over thirty years’ experience in college teaching, textbook publishing, and library archival work. He is a member of the American Society of Church History, the Conference on Faith and History, and the South Carolina Historical Association. Among his published works are Free Indeed: Heroes of Black Christian History, The Dividing Line: Understanding and Applying Biblical Separation, and the high-school textbook United History for Christian Schools.

His special interest is the role of religion in history. He teaches courses in Ancient Near East and Greece (with discussion of the intersection of biblical history with that era), History of the Renaissance, History of the Reformation, and Civil War and Reconstruction. In addition he teaches a survey History of Christianity for the School of Religion and a Seminary course in Historical Theology.
