We have broken the year into it’s seasons and here are the service videos:

Easter 2023

Last two Sundays

May 21st worship Service

We are nearing the end of the Easter Season.  Mid week, on Thursday, we acknowledged Jesus’ accession into heaven forty days after the resurrection.  More on that next week, because this week I want to focus on actual guidance given by Jesus during his time with the disciples.  

In the Gospel of Matthew, 28:16, Jesus meets with the disciples on a mountainside in Galilee. It is here when he gives actual direction to the disciples.  It is at this point which he turns them into the Apostles he has been training them to be.

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

They have been given a mission.  A mission which has been passed through the generations for the last 2,000 years.  As believers we understand that the mission has been passed on to us.  We are to work in ourselves, our families, our communities, and our world to bring about the age of Jesus.  The good news…Jesus will be with us each and every day until the mission is accomplished.

Join us for our May 21st Worship Service.

MAY 14Th worship service

Outside of the Jesus’ typical appearance to the Apostles, when he is seen on the third day, is the most important resurrection appearances, for the Gentiles, is his appearance to the Apostle Paul.

This was long after the resurrection, accession and gift of the Holy Spirit.  The new community based on Jesus’ resurrection had become firmly established in Jerusalem.  The community was growing, in spite of the opposition from the Jewish community.  The resentment from the Jews had reached the point where Stephen, one of seven deacons appointed by the Apostles, was stoned to death for standing up for “The Way” beliefs.

It was through the death of Stephen that the growing Christian community, decided that Jerusalem was no longer safe. A disbursement of the Christian community began which spread the Christians, and their belief in the resurrected Jesus, throughout the Roman Empire.

Paul was a Pharisee, committed to traditional Judaism, and  committed stopping this new movement based on Jesus.  A community dedicated to The Way was rumored to be in Damascus.  Paul volunteered to find them and “bring them bound” to Jerusalem. 

It was on the way to Damascus that Jesus appeared to Paul (Acts 9).  Striking him to the ground and blinding him Jesus asked Paul why he was persecuting him.  In that vision and the answer Jesus created the Apostle who would bring the word of God to the Gentile community.
