Sent on a spiritual journey into the world: Travels through Acts chapter 12-28
These people who have been turning the world upside down have come here. (Acts 17:6)
This summer, join us on a spiritual journey through Acts as we ponder how God sends us into the world today. On Sunday mornings at 8:15am and 10:30am, Sent will take us to Antioch, Phillipi, Athens, Corinth, Ephesus, Rome and more. It is a story of diversity, innovation, community, strategic plans, Godly dreams, jail time, female pastors, clergy couples, pagan temples, risks, and a shipwreck!
