We’d love you to join us this weekend at our church, whether your the first time ever, your first time in a while, or maybe you’re with us most weekends. We’d love our church to be your church, if it’s not already.
Right now we’re in a series called ‘Launching the Church’, where we’re looking at the New Testament book of Acts and how a gang of a few hundred believers in Jesus quickly grew to many thousands in just a matter of weeks. This week it’s chapters 3 and 4, with the topic ‘The Launch of Persecution’, as we see how the extraordinary kick-start from the Day of Pentecost led to an amazing miracle, which then led to some pretty intense opposition from the legal eagles.
As part of our weekly church we have a ‘Question and Answer’ spot, where I get to answer questions you’ve asked last week about the Bible talk, or really, anything at all. Here are the questions for this coming weekend:
1 Where does the Bible say that the Holy Spirit is a ‘he’?
2 How did the Bible writer know that Judas went to hell?
3 After Pentecost, did the believers speak their original languages?
4 How long did it take to baptise 3000 people?
5 Why were people healed after touching Jesus?
6 Can Christians perform healing miracles today?
7 What stops Christians performing healing miracles today?
You can see that I’ve really got my homework cut out for me this week! So come and hear my answers and have your world expanded as you consider how God is working in his world.
So, we’d love you to join us at 5pm this Saturday with dinner, kids’ program, and a great, all-age service. Or come at 9am Sunday for a more classic-style Anglican service, with terrific espresso coffee. See you this weekend, God willing!
Grace and peace, Jodie.
