May 01 & 02: Bold Church Transformation
Has your life ever taken an abrupt turn in one direction or another? Do you ever feel that you are making plans in one direction, but life is moving in quite another direction? If your answer is “yes,” you are not alone. In today’s lesson, we get an idea of how we can discover God’s plans for us and join in the dream of building God’s kingdom in our lives.
May 08 & 09: Bold Church: Testimony
What is your faith story? What path has brought you to the way you now believe? Today, as we continue reading through the book of Acts we encounter the apostle Paul telling his story. We can learn a lot from him about how our lives can be a living testimony to the grace of God.
May 15 & 16: Bold Church: Adventure
In the final chapters of Acts, we encounter a long winter, pounding storms at sea, severe hunger, threats of death, a shipwreck and the near loss of hope. Through it all, Paul, under arrest and facing death, maintains a spirit of adventure. The final words of Luke’s riveting story describe Paul proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about Jesus “with all boldness and without hindrance.”
May 22 & 23: Bold Church: Spirit
The early Christian church began with a spirit of boldness that came from the transforming love of God they experienced in Jesus. The same Spirit of love and goodness that Jesus possessed was given to the disciples at Pentecost and is available to us today. The Holy Spirit makes us a Bold Church.

May 30 & June 2: Family Tree
