GOSPEL | CULTURE | MISSION
A series through the book of Acts
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” Acts 1:8
When the reality of the Gospel grips His local churches it inevitably creates a culture – a gospel culture – that makes the glory of Christ visible in the world. Yet, in too many churches, this gospel culture is missing. When that happens, churches become fragile at best and hypocritical at worst. So, how do we, by God’s grace, create a culture that reflects the power, beauty, and nature of what God has achieved in Jesus?
We want to invite you to join us for our verse-by-verse study on the Book of Acts. We will see how the gospel transforms the culture, and sends us out on mission, so that the gospel will spread to the ends of the earth.
To help you learn and reflect as we journey through Acts you are invited to pick up a Scripture Journal this Sunday.

the book of JAMES
Imagine getting a letter that begins, “Welcome trouble!” Would you read any further?
What to Expect
James begins his letter with the ironic call to joy through trials (paraphrased as “Welcome trouble” in the Phillips New Testament). How does that happen? Is it actually possible or even realistic for us to apply his words to our own daily difficulties?
Early in the history of the church a controversy arose over faith and works. Last week we considered that debate in Acts 15. James, the leader of the early church in Jerusalem, was at the center of that critical discussion. You can read a summary of our discussion on our resources link below.
Does the connection between joy and trouble have anything to do with the debate over faith and works? Join us this week as we start into the letter that James wrote. Be a part of the discussion and see what God might want to teach us through His Word.
Calvary Institute meets at 8:30 every Sunday. Child care is provided.
