We come to this Pentecost Sunday after a time of shutdown and separation. We have been separated physically, but hopefully not spiritually. But now, as we resume our gatherings, what's next? Do we go back to business as usual? What changes do we have to make as the world around us goes into a change the likes of which we have never seen before? Jesus' ascension marked a time of change for the disciples. They were entering into a new era of ministry, as well as a new era in their lives as a whole. And it was the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday that gave them the power and courage to walk into everything new that now faced them. Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he takes a look at the account of the coming of the Holy Spirit, and what that can tell us about our job as the church right ere and right now.

Our nation has been hit with several waves of uncertainty, tension, and fear. From COVID-19 to the current racial tension, many are left wondering if the church, or even the country as a whole, will be able to recover and renew itself. We live in a culture crippled by doubt, fear, anger, and a lack of hope. We are not done. The church is going to do more than simply come back. We are being reset, brought into a season of ministry unlike any we have seen before, and we must be ready for what is coming next. Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he examines Peter's encounter with the lame man at the Gate Beautiful in Part 3 of Divine Reset.

We are continuing our series on the Divine Reset of the church first seen on the Day of Pentecost 2,000 years ago, and the Divine Reset we are seeing in the church today. We are seeing circumstances in our nation and in our world that are turning people toward God like few other things can, and we are being called to a season of ministry unlike any we have seen before. We are being given a wake-up call. Will we respond and step into something we have never seen before? Or will we stay where we are and miss out on something new that God has for us? Join Dr. Mark Lantz for Part 2 of Divine Reset.
