Beginning June 24th
Wednesdays: 7:00pm - 8:15pm
Vicar Tim will guide participants through an exploration of the earliest
sermons in Christianity, as God had them recorded in the Book of Acts
We've all heard plenty of sermons. Sermons on the New Testament, the Gospels, the Old Testament… all pointing us to Jesus and what he has done for us.
But what if the New Testament hadn't been written yet? What if the Gospels weren't yet written down, but were still only the oral testimony of the eyewitnesses? And what if nearly no one you spoke to had ever heard the name "Jesus"? What would preaching look like?
This is exactly the situation of the early church as we find it in the book of Acts. These first Christians have been called by God's grace and given the privilege of sharing that grace found in Jesus with others. As we study their words and their proclamation of Jesus, by the Holy Spirit's powerful work we'll see Jesus in the Old Testament as clearly as they saw him; we'll learn how to introduce Jesus to someone who has never met him; and we'll see how the good news of what he has done continually strengthens and empowers us for our work.
