will bring the message,

Where the People Are

   The story of Easter is not over yet. It's just beginning. Yes, Jesus is risen and he is risen indeed! After the Resurrection, Jesus stuck around for a while continuing to appear to the disciples and many others before his Ascension.

   In Acts 16:9-15, Paul receives a vision that he should travel to Macedonia to teach the good news of Jesus Christ. There was no question about it. He just got up and went. There, he met Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth and a worshipper of God. The message began to spread in that area.

  • In what ways do you hear God speaking to you? Have you ever had what you consider to be a vision or received a message in a dream?

  • Have you ever felt that God asks too much?

  • What is it like to just get up and go, not because you wish to escape, but rather because of a sense of purpose and call?

  • There's two different ideas in church ministry: "Go into all the world" and "If you build it they will come." Which one do you use when?

UPCOMING SCRIPTURES:

Sunday, May 29: Up, Up, and Away!

Sixth Sunday of Easter/Sunday after the Ascension

Acts 1:1-11 & Psalm 47 - The Psalm is a Psalm of praise for the King who sits on the holy throne. It’s fitting for Ascension Sunday, since it is the day Christ Jesus Ascends to God in heaven to be at God’s right hand. Yet, why is the Ascension important?

Sunday, June 5: Spirit, Light My Soul Aflame

Pentecost

Acts 2:1-21 - The Holy Spirit comes upon the disciples during the Festival of Pentecost in the form of tongues of flame that rest above their heads. Each begins to speak in a different language so that all those who could hear, from different regions and cultures, could understand the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Sunday, June 12: Wisdom, Wisdom, Let Us Hear Your Truth!

Trinity Sunday/Peace with Justice Sunday

Proverbs 8:1-4,22-31 & John 16:12-15 - From Proverbs we hear Wisdom's witness and testimony. In John, Jesus tells his disciples of the Spirit of Truth who will come and guide them. He also tells them Spirit will not lead them astray, for Spirit's words come from God and Christ.

Sunday, June 19: Peace in the Quiet

Second Sunday of Kingdomtide

1 Kings 19:1-13 & Luke 8:26-39 - Elijah is running for his life after a confrontation with Jezebel's prophets of Baal, and travels to Horeb the Mount of God. In Luke, Jesus heals a tortured man by casting out "Legion," the many demons who possessed him.
