This week our Scripture continues to explore the book of Acts. I confess I am still reeling a bit from the reading last week. I am wondering how the early church responded to Stephen's death. Little information is given, and after a brief pause that draws our attention to Saul and the continued persecution of the fledgling church, the text sprints ahead to the next story about wonders in Samaria before transporting us into our story for this week about Phillip.
Our reading for this Sunday is taken from Acts 8:26-39- but I encourage you to read the entire chapter to fill in the gap. Click Here to read Acts 8 and be sure to pay attention to the final story which begins at verse 26.
Blessings, Pastor Laurie
It has been a joy to stay connected and to interact with folks near and far on our Zoom Coffee Hour each Sunday. We value the connections we make online and we plan to continue this ministry even as we return to in-person worship.
Plan to join us Sunday, April 18th as we gather again for our virtual coffee hour from 12:15pm - 1:00 pm
Some of you have shared that you are having difficulty connecting with Zoom. Regrettably, Zoom is the best way for us to connect at this time as it allows us to SEE and hear each other, it’s like a video conference call. You do need to have a camera and microphone to connect (so if you have an older computer this can be a challenge as some of us have discovered.) You can use your phone (be sure you are using wifi rather than data) or Ipad to connect with Zoom and I am working on a low cost camera and microphone option, so contact me if you are interested.
I am also happy to help you connect. The first step is to set up a free Zoom account, which
you can do at zoom.us. Once you have an account, give me a call and we can do a practice Zoom meeting or you can click on the link in my weekly email to join me for Zoom office hours at the appropriate time.
