The church has been around for almost 2,000 years and there are a lot of materials that we can find about what church should look like and be about. When it was first starting after Christ ascended to heaven, his first followers didn't have church growth books to build from. Regardless, these followers of The Way, charged ahead with a passion to share the story about Jesus and build a community centered around his resurrection.
The book of Acts tells the story of how these early Christians were coming together, what they cared most about and how they were living out their faith in Jesus. This series of Viva! will explore four important stories from the life of the early church and ask how we can apply them to our lives today.
Here is what we'll be discussing in Viva! The Early Church:
Week 1: Judas' Replacement (Acts 1:15-26)
Week 2: Pentecost (Acts 2:1-13)
Week 3: The Beautiful Gate (Acts 3:1-10)
Week 4: Everything in Common (Acts 4:32-37)
