Bible Passage: Acts 10
This Sunday is Missions Sunday, and anticipate great things as we take up a special offering for our mission efforts around the world. Many have been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for our special congregational event this week, a reverse parade, which will follow our worship service and take place in the east parking lot. Phil’s sermon will set up this experience. He will talk about the importance in scripture of cross-cultural Christian connection. God rarely left Christians in one city completely to themselves, but orchestrated all sorts of visits, trips, and letters to keep Christians connected. This is especially noticeable in the story of Peter and Cornelius in Acts 10, where God intentionality brings Christians from different parts of the world together to honor him.
