    There are a lot of unexpected events, surprises in the Bible. It’s surprising that God saved a man like Saul, who became the great Apostle Paul. Think of the surprise to the Israelites when they came to the Red Sea with the Egyptians in hot pursuit, and suddenly, Surprise, God parts the sea for them to cross over. Think of how surprising it was to live in Galilee when a man named Jesus suddenly starts turning water into wine, calming storms, healing the sick and raising the dead! There are so many other surprises in the Bible, as we continue to look at various cities in Acts, we come to a new person. A surprise. There’s no hint of him before chapter 18, and then he leaps into the Bible! He’s mentioned once more in Acts 19:1, and then you never hear of him in Acts again, although Paul mentions him 7 times in 1 Corinthians and once in Titus. Join us as we journey to this new Destination in Acts 18.

    Visiting the Cities of Acts: Egoamimetasou
    Series: Past Sermons
    We have been through various cities so far in our journey through Acts. Last week we visited Religiosity. A place where people pretend to be religious but all of it is empty and hollow. Instead, we need to move into relationship with God. The week before that we were in Simplicity. The Bereans showed us how to live in simple faith. Following God, studying the Scripture to make sure we are living our lives right. We started this sermon series by visiting the town of Jealousy. In the city of Jealousy there is a good side. There is a proper time and place to be jealous. But there is also the other side of the tracks. A place where jealousy takes us to a sinful life. The city we are really going to visit today is hard to say, Egoamimetasou. We are going to see what Egoamimetasou means to Paul, and what it can mean to us, as we come to chapter 18 of Acts. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #VisitingtheCitiesofActs

    As we continue through our study in Acts we are visiting the various cities that Paul goes to on his second missionary journey. Today we come to the town of Athens. Athens became known for its military power. Even though it had been conquered by the Romans in 146 BC, during Paul’s day Athens continued to be a free city that was still known as the intellectual capital of the Greco-Roman world and the religious capital of Greece. What are we going to find when we travel to Athens with Paul... Let find out in Acts 17. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #VisitingtheCitiesofActs

    All year we have been going through the book of Acts. Our theme for the year is Destination. When going on a trip you want to visit different destinations to see the sights. Many people pick certain cities to travel to. There are lots of cities to travel to. Here in America and across the globe. In chapter 17 of Acts we see Paul and his companions going on their second missionary journey. They are going to go through several cities. As we look at these cities they traveled through, we will see how we also travel to these various cities.

    Baggage: Acts 15
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year we are going through the book of Acts. Our theme is Destination. The book of Acts, written by Luke who is a Gentile Physician, tells us about the first thirty years of the development of Christianity. About 20 years in, 20 years after the resurrection of Christ, a problem develops. We read about the problem and the solution the early church came up with in Acts 15. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #baggage

    The Journey Begins – part 2
    Series: Past Sermons
    Last time we looked at most of chapter 13. The first official missionary journey, Paul and Barnabas sent out to preach and reach people for Christ. In 13, we saw that Paul and Barnabas took the message, the gospel, the good news about Jesus to both Jews and Gentiles. What we didn’t get to is the end of that chapter. What happened when Paul and Barnabas preached the truth about Jesus? Opposition. Anger. Hate. Joy. Hope. Filling with the Holy Spirit. Join us as we continue our journey with Paul & Barnabas in Acts 14. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Destination2021 #TheJourneyBegins
