EKKLĒSIA: THE ESSENTIAL CHURCH IS ACTS
Sunday Mornings at 8:30 & 10:50
A few weeks of quarantine gave us a small taste of what the first followers of Christ experienced at the beginning of Acts – being the Church without a building. Those first believers experienced significant hardship and persecution—yet the Early Church exploded with spiritual and physical growth. First hundreds, then thousands of faithful believers began meeting together in small gatherings located in homes or public spaces. The word they used to describe these gatherings was ekklēsia – the Greek word we translate as “church.” Digging a little deeper, we learn ekklēsia had a significant dual-meaning. Its simple, everyday meaning was “assembly.” Its root words, on the other hand, meant “those who are called out.” Join us for ekklēsia: The Essential Church in Acts, as the Lord is giving us a fresh view of the essential Church and her mission.
As part of this series, our suggested book to read will be: Letters to the Church by Francis Chan. We have 10 more copies that Mardel gave us a special price of $10 per book available in the church office or at the Welcome Center. Purchase a copy from church HERE and we will put your name on it. Amazon has several formats available for purchase HERE.
On Sunday nights this summer we will have a Zoom discussion (id #83425244450) time from 6:00-7:00 p.m. during which we will dive deeper into the texts with Pastor Eric and other teachers from our church in a Q & A format. Please join us https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83425244450.
