Weekly Teaching

Going Deeper

In this week’s reading, we are introduced to Stephen – initially as a leader responsible for overseeing the care of a minority group’s widows and then, as the first Christian martyr. It can be difficult for us to fully understand Stephen’s suffering in a western context; discussing our faith does not tend to threaten our lives. However, for many Christians around the world, martyrdom is a very current reality. Take some time this week to watch this 12-minute video from North Way Mission Partner Derek Seipp who, along with his wife Holly, serves the North Korean Church. Spend some time in prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world as well as for people like Derek and Holly who are working to plant churches in areas of strong persecution.

Just a reminder that if you’d like to join us for the Spiritual Gifts Workshop, there is still time to sign up!

We will have an excellent panel discussion about teaching on spiritual gifts and the specific gifts that we find in Scripture. You will then have an opportunity to jump into a breakout group focused on your personal spiritual gift to learn more about your gifting and tangible ways you can begin to operate in those gifts.
