This engaging book guides readers through one of the most colorful books of the Bible, illuminating passages from Acts that show the Christian gospel expressing itself through the lives, speech, struggles, and adventures of Jesus’s followers. The book emphasizes the disruptive character of the Christian gospel and shows how Acts repeatedly describes God as upsetting the status quo by changing people’s lives, society’s conventions, and our basic expectations of what’s possible. Suited for individual and group study, this book by a New Testament scholar with a gift for popular communication asks serious questions and eschews pat answers, bringing Acts alive for contemporary reflection on the character of God, the challenges of faith, and the church.
Immediately following worship on April 30, 2017, there will be a brief meeting of the Congregation to vote on approving the Council’s request to move funds from the gains of the Building Fund for the operational expenses of the church. This meeting is being called by Mac Borgendale, in his role as President of the Congregation, with the full assent of the Church Council, as provided for in the Constitution.
Members are requested to be present and share their input and vote in this issue regarding the financial life of our congregation.
A letter is being prepared and sent by email to all known members to inform them of this meeting.
