We are fast approaching Pentecost Sunday, on which we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit for the very first time on the early church. But we tend to skip over the time between Christ's ascension and the coming of the Holy Spirit. Jesus was fully aware that the disciples would be waiting for the Holy Spirit for a time. Thus, His last conversation with them is incredibly important. What principles can we glean from this conversation that apply to us today? What can we learn from this time of waiting? Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he examines this last earthy conversation of the Lord Jesus Christ in part 6 of Restored.

Our Restored series has explored the restoration of the Apostle Peter after his denial of Christ. We have explored the ways in which Jesus brought Peter back to Himself after Peter did the very thing he vowed not to do: abandon Jesus. We have used this to explore what God is calling to church to become as we move forward into the next stage of the year 2020. Now, we come to the tipping point of the restoration of Peter: the last words of Jesus to His disciples just before His ascension. What does this last conversation have to say to us today? Join Dr. Mark Lantz for Part 5 of Restored.

For the past month, we have been discussing the restoration of the Apostle Peter following his denial of Christ. This week, we are looking at the various aspects of Peter's life that the Lord sought to restore in His encounter with Peter at the Sea of Galilee, and what this means for us as the church as we prepare to start our in-person gatherings again. We are entering a new era of ministry as the church. Are we prepared for what God is calling us to do? Are we truly aware of what this restoration truly means for us? Join us for Part 4 of Restored.

We have entered our third week in this series that began with our Easter celebration. Easter is a time of new beginnings, but what do we do after Easter has come and gone? The restoration of our Lord does not end with a Sunday! We have been discussing the restoration into which God is leading the global church for the past few weeks by taking a look at the restoration of the Apostle Peter after his denial of Christ. Please join us as we continue this discussion and prepare ourselves for a new paradigm of the Church Age.
