    Giving
    One of our elders, Mike Duffield, shares this lesson from Acts 4 and reminds us the importance of giving in the church. This week we took a special contribution to help Churches of Christ Disaster Relief Effort, Inc. with their work responding to natural disasters. They are currently helping in the aftermath of hurricanes in Texas and Florida, fires in the west and in other areas around the country. You can learn more about their work and find ways to help at

    Sharing Without Fear
    Peter and John were arrested for talking about Jesus. They were given an ultimatum by the Sanhedrin to stop. Their response in Acts 4:20 was simple: "
    As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard." For Christians today, we have that same mission. If you were on trial for sharing about Jesus, would you be found guilty?

    Look at Us
    In Acts 3, Peter heals a man at the gate of the temple. With the attention that follows, he and John use the opportunity to tell the crowd about Jesus. When people notice the lives we live and the way we love God, it gives us the opportunity to point people toward Him.

    The Church Begins
    On the day of Pentecost the promised Spirit is finally revealed, the gospel of Christ is shared and lives are changed. In the beginning of the church we see the foundation it is built upon and the pattern that helps it grow.

    The Mission of the Church
    We begin a new series this week on the book of Acts: The Church in Action. Between His resurrection from death and ascension to heaven, Jesus left the apostles with the mission to share His story. It is a mission we continue today.

    The Reunion
    Series: Genesis
    Our series on Genesis concludes with the reunion of Joseph and his family. From being the favorite son, to the bottom of a pit, to life as a slave, to prison and eventually to the palace of Pharaoh; Joseph's life is full of ups and downs. Through all of them, "God was with Joseph." His story is a reminder of God's faithfulness. Our stories can be too.

    From the Pit to the Palace
    Series: Genesis
    After continuing to do the right thing, Joseph finds himself in prison. Even there he is given responsibility because of his good character. This incredibly difficult path will lead him through God's power to being second to only Pharoah in Egypt. God can still work in our struggles in ways that we cannot even imagine.

    Joseph and Potiphar
    Series: Genesis
    After escaping death only to be sold into slavery, Joseph ends up in Egypt in the house of Potiphar. Even as a slave, Joseph earns the respect of his owner. Unfortunately, that respect is short-lived due to false accusations. Through all the struggles, God is still with Joseph. That should remind us that God is faithful through good and bad.

    Joseph
    Series: Genesis
    The last major character in our Genesis series is Joseph. His story takes about 1/4 of the book. This is the first of four lessons about his life. Joseph was his father's favorite child. That did not go over well with his brothers, but God uses their action against Joseph as one of the first steps to place Joseph where he needs to be.
