This Sunday we continue exploring stories of the earliest church from the Book of Acts. We encounter the apostle Peter and the Gentile centurion, Cornelius as they “take the Cup of Freedom!” Our scripture this week is another example of the “unhindered gospel,” as Peter comes to know the extravagant love of God that breaks down every barrier of “Otherness.” It is a story that is as fresh and relevant as when it was first told. Right after services, next Sunday, May 26, we will dedicate our new church sign -- may SunCoast MCC be a “sign” of God’s extravagant love!
