Getting into the Acts

The group

Last weekend we had a group of young people take over our house (we are so thankful for a house that can be used!) for a youth weekend on the book of Acts. There was a quiz, styled after Jeopardy! (for those of you who are old enough to know the show) and some fun, practical activities.
What was the first church like? What did they find most important? What can we learn from those first followers of Jesus? That is what we wanted to look at - not only in knowledge, but in reality. So we helped each other serve tables, shared, told others what we were doing, studied the apostle's teaching and encouraged one another. We even looked at persecution, although that is something we most definitely do not experience here.
It was a great group and so encouraging to see the young people wanting to learn more. Thank you Lord for using us all in so many ways to show Your love and grace!
