Join your GCC family this weekend as we step back in time to the first church that was established by the power of the Holy Spirit nearly 2000 years ago. In this “Dear Church,” series, we have learned that Church is designed to be the body of Christ on earth. As a church, we are to be the visible representation of Jesus to the world. Frankly, that’s a tall order! How do we do it? Let’s take a look at the early church as described in Acts 2:42-47. The activities of this “first church” are very similar to the activities of our church, but we want to focus our attention on the atmosphere of the early church. What did it feel like to be part of the church in the year 33 AD, and what does that mean for each of us and our church today?
Over the next five weekends, we will hear Jesus speak to the Church. We need to hear what He has to say about us. If we listen well and apply what we learn, Jesus will reset our understanding of Church and even deepen our love for Church. The series is entitled “Dear Church,” because each sermon focuses on a truth that Jesus wants the Church to learn – truths about who we are and what He wants us to do.
