During the Easter Season our worship themes will be taken form the book of Acts. The Gospel according to Luke was written as a history of the Christian church beginning with the life of Jesus. The book of Acts continues that story with the events that took place after Jesus’ death and resurrection. In it we see a community struggle to pattern their lives after Jesus and to share the good news of Jesus with the world.
April 10 & 11: Bold Church Beginnings – Quilt & School Kit Blessing
Luke continues his gospel story with a summary of the mission and ministry of Jesus from his transfiguration on Mount Tabor to his ascension on the Mount of Olives. Referencing the Holy Spirit three times in this brief passage, Luke grounds the story of the birth of the church in the wisdom that bold, new beginnings are always Spirit-driven. Quilts and School Kits will be blessed during the Serving Recognition to then be sent off to be a blessing to others.
April 17 & 18: Bold Church Proclamation – Wee Wisdom Sunday
A growing number of followers of Jesus continue to put their lives on the line for the sake of the gospel. Imprisonment and fear of death will not deter these Christ-followers from proclaiming the good news of Jesus and the Spirit-driven call to a bold life of obedience to the gospel. We will also celebrate the ministry of Wee Wisdom Preschool. All former students are encouraged to attend.
April 24 & 25: Bold Church Mission
On his first missionary journey, the Apostle Paul teaches in the synagogue in Antioch. Paul boldly traces God’s unfolding mission to draw all people to himself. That mission of salvation finally finds its completion in Jesus. Our mission as Christ-followers is to bear a bold witness for the coming generations that “this salvation has been sent.”
