"Holy Boldness"
Sunday Sermon

Our sermon series on the Book of Acts, "The Movement," continues this week with Pastor Tim reflecting on the holy boldness we encounter in the ministry of Peter and John in Acts 4:1-22. Join us as we see that their boldness, and our ability to act boldly, comes through the power of the Spirit at work in our lives.

Acts 4:1-22
Worship: 9:00 & 10:30 am
Moving Deeper: A Multigenerational Bible Study on the Book of Acts
Sunday Nights Through August 5th

We will gathe r o n Sunday evenings for a potluck meal at 5:00 pm, share worship through music at 5:45 pm, and engage the text for the week from 6:00-7:00 pm. During the study time, we will have childcare for children under five, classes for kids from K through 8th grades, and an adult study, which includes our high school age youth. The study is each Sunday (except June 17th and July 15th). 
Please sign up at the Welcome Center to indicate which dates you will try to attend so we can coordinate enough main dishes. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping out with the classes for our young people and for those who would like to prepare a main dish. Please contact Tami Gomez for more information on helping with these evenings. 
Sunday at 10:30 am

We welcome into the Lord's family through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism:
