Is the Gospel Still Good News...

Old News? Fake News? Impossible News? In a social media culture overpopulated with the sharing of personal thoughts and opinions, status updates and “retweeted” headlines, it can be difficult to maneuver through the muck and answer the question; what really is “Good News?”

At Christmas time, we hear this phrase “Good News” refer to the exciting announcement and anticipation of Christ’s birth. But is that news still ‘Good’ and relevant for today? Over the next month, the pastoral team at First Friends will be maneuvering this question by delving into God’s Word to see what it has to say about the “Good News” and how it should shape our perspective this Christmas season. The hope is that you and your family will understand not only the important revelation of what God has saved us from and to, but also what He has saved us for, as we are sent into our various “mission fields” of life to proclaim His truth.

The Book of Acts: "The Age of the Spirit and the Church"

Before Jesus ascended into the heavens he told his disciples to wait for his Holy Spirit to come and bring power into their lives. It was only in the Spirit’s power that they would be his witnesses from Jerusalem into all the world. It was Jesus’ Holy Spirit working in them that would unite them and birth what we call the Church . . . God’s people gathering and going on God’s mission.

This summer we will be studying the Book of Acts and praying for God to unite and empower us in new and fresh ways to be God’s people gathering and going on his mission! Read and P.R.A.Y. Scripture from the Book of Acts reading plan each week to prepare yourself for what God will do in us together as the Church!
