Current Sermon Series: Surprise! The Unexpected Acts of God

Between now and June 9th, we’ll be spending our time in the book of Acts. We all know the excitement and nerves that come with a sudden reversal of our expectations. The early Christians whose stories are told in the book of Acts had no shortage of surprise. The resurrection set off a host of unexpected events and changes for Jesus’ followers, even changes within themselves. If our own spiritual lives have come to seem humdrum and every day, these stories will awaken in us a new desire for God’s work in the lives of unsuspecting, ordinary people like ourselves. As we explore the journey of surprises in these texts, we will learn the spiritual habit of welcoming an unpredictable God and coming to expect the unexpected.
