Last week we ended with this Quote from Ray Steadman; “God’s first concern is not what the church does, it is what the church is……..” We asked; what if the Church was just the Church? We will pick up right there and answer, What the Church is! The Holy Spirit reveals this to us in Acts 2: 43-47. So get a head start and start devoting yourself to this scripture!

How the Church Loves
May 9, 2021 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we conclude our first series in Acts with a look at the death of the first Christian martyr Stephen. Read Acts 6:8 to 7:1 and pay particularly attention how Stephen is loving his audience by sharing these truths no matter what it costs him. Consider how the church can love in such a way.
How the Church Survives

This week we examine two of the greatest and constant threats to the ministry of the Church: division and burnout. In Acts 6:1-7 we find both of these things threatening a growing and vibrant church and we find the apostles solution summarized in one great word: Delegation! Read the text and consider how delegation made the difference.

This week we are looking at Acts 4:32-5:11 and the strange story of Ananias and Saphira. As we examine this story we will be considering in particular what sort of habits and mindsets kill a church. I would encourage you to read the story and, as you do, ask yourself “why?” with each development. Why did Ananias and Saphira do what they did? Why did Peter say what he said? And why did God respond the way He did?
