INTRODUCTION

The time in the Christian calendar between the day of Pentecost and the beginning of Advent is called Ordinary Time. It is a time where the Church gathers to devote themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to prayer, to the work of ministry in their local context, and to the ultimate glory of God. It is also meant to reflect where Christians are today in the redemption plan of God for this world. We find ourselves living in the time following Pentecost, where the Holy Spirit descended on the Church, awaiting Christ’s return—His Second Advent. As such, we have a mission to live, a Savior to love, an abiding presence to empower us, and a community to serve in “the waiting.”

During this season, we want to devote ourselves to three different seasons of study, and we invite you to join us personally and collectively as a church. Over the summer, we will walk through a theological picture of the person of Jesus Christ, articulated through the pages of the Scriptures. We want to have a clear vision of who Jesus is and what He accomplished. Then, we will look at case studies from the Book of Acts hoping to gain a better understanding of what happens when the local church has a clear vision for Jesus in their city. During the fall, we will be studying Paul’s letters to the church in first-century Thessalonica, Greece. We hope to see what living radically for Jesus looks like today in the lives of believers within the Church. As the fall season comes to a close, we will once again celebrate the Advent season and be reminded that our Hope has come, that light has broken through, and that salvation is made available to all who place their faith in the person of Jesus Christ.

ENTER THE STORY

We invite you to make coming to church a priority throughout this season. Protect the worship service times in your schedule through the summer and fall. Come ready to take notes, dive in with questions, surrender to the leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit, and refresh your vision of Jesus as an individual, as a family, and as a part of the church family.
