Galatians 4-6

Hi Everyone, Tomorrow evening (yes, we’re meeting on Easter Monday) we will gather for the conclusion of Galatians – chapters 4-6. For those who missed chapters 1-3, here’s our take-away: Paul is writing to the people of Galatia because they’ve been influenced by Christian Jews who believe one should be […]


Paul goes to Rome

On Monday we’ll be considering Paul’s final journey to Rome, Acts 23 – 28. This is a pretty long stretch to the end of Acts – if you’re up for reading the whole thing, more power to you! It’s pretty repetitive as it moves the plot along. Here are some key […]

ACTS 10-12: Peter’s Ministry, Message, and Incarceration

This past week we looked at the stories of “Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch” and the “Conversion of Saul.” We had an engaging conversation about the ways in which God communicates with us. What do you do when God ambiguously asks you to go over there? Do you go, not […]


Acts 8 & 9

This week we looked at Acts 5-7 and noticed the brief description of events, layered with long monologues of theology. The early church is on point with their messaging, though organizing and re-organizing themselves as opposition moves in against them. Gamaliel then stands up to the council and reminds them that […]
