In Acts 1:8, the first Christians were told to be witnesses of Jesus in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. In Acts 1-6 we see the record of the Gospel permeating the city of Jerusalem. It is now time for the Gospel to move into Judea and Samaria. To propel the Gospel forward, God uses tragedy. Join us for worship on Sunday at 9:30am as Pastor David shares a message titled “Dying to Please God.”
