Included: The Acts of the Church

Acts provokes us to look for faithful ways to extend God’s grace to everyone around us. We focus on acting out the gospel, being the mission, and watching God’s restoration take place among us. God is inviting everyone to be in relationship with himself, this series will help us expect and look for God’s work in our neighborhood and around the world.

4/16/2023 Second Sunday of Easter

Heaven on all the Earth

Jesus taught us to pray, “Your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.” God intends the church to be the evidence and witnesses that his kingdom is here. And he gives us the power of his divine Spirit to accomplish the work.

  • Gospel Lesson: John 14:15-21
  • Sermon Text: Acts 1:1-8

4/23/2023 Third Sunday of Easter

The Proof is in the Pudding

The signs of salvation are evidence that silences critics of Christianity. It’s one thing to claim that we are saved by Jesus. It is quite another to live in such a way that people know we belong to God. There’s an older saying, “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.”

  • Gospel Lesson: John 15:5-17
  • Sermon Text: Acts 4:1-22

Forgiven then Forgiving

One of Jesus’ followers, Stephen, oversees caring for the poor. Religious leaders in the temple become jealous of his life and influence. They decide to kill him. But as they stone him, Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, forgives his attackers. Can we be that full of the Spirit? Find out in this week’s sermon by Pastor Scott.

  • Epistle Lesson: 1 Peter 2:19-25
  • Gospel Lesson: John 15:18-27
  • Sermon Text: Acts 7:51-60

5/7/2023 Fifth Sunday of Easter

Experiencing Scripture

Acts asks us, are there new experiences of the HS that challenge our current understanding of scripture? We believe God was inspiring Peter to hear old scripture in a new way when he went to Cornelius’s home. God still inspires us through scripture today.

  • Epistle Lesson: 1 Peter 2:2-10
  • Gospel Lesson: John 16:1-15
  • Sermon Text: Acts 11:1-18

5/14/2023 Sixth Sunday of Easter

Why Women 

God created men and women in God’s own image, so it’s no surprise that God leads Lydia to start a house church. What is God empowering you to do that secular (and maybe church) culture says you can’t, but God is saying, “Go for it!”

  • Epistle Lesson: 1 Peter 3:13-22
  • Gospel Lesson: John 17:1-11
