Come and find communty in Christ
Come and grow in the knowledge of God
Come and serve in Jesus' name
This Sunday at Bethel
— 6th Sunday of Easter, May 1, 2016
In the book of Acts (16:9-15), Paul has a vision of a man calling him to bring the gospel from Asia to Greece, and so Paul sets sail for Greece.
At the end of the journey, Paul finds a home for his ministry in the house of a woman named Lydia. It’s a story about how God calls us to unexpected places—and provides unexpected partners in ministry.
In this weeks’ Gospel reading, Jesus promises to make his home with his disciples, and to give them his Spirit and his peace.
These passages are good words for us, as individuals and as a congregation, as we venture into new territory. “I will not leave you orphaned,” promises Jesus.
The adult class “God Questions, Good Questions” continues this week, considering some of the big questions of faith having to do with suffering, evil, the truth in other religions, and finding God’s will for our lives.
See you in church,
