We are blessed to live in a Nation where there is religious freedom, but that does not mean that our faith does not cost us something in the marketplace or with our friends and family. Tuesday Pastor Brian Bill will walk us through a passage in Acts to show us how we can persevere through the persecution we receive because of our faith in Jesus Christ.
Are you empowered by your church leadership to do the work of ministry or is that work primarily reserved for those receiving a paycheck from the church? Tuesday we visit this topic of equipping the saints with Pastor Micah Fries. Micah will walk through the process of learning to delegate, develop leaders, and deploy church members to do the worker. It’s a look at what the body is called to do and how the church can be a place where gifts are developed and used instead of a spectator sport.
