Your Story: Season Two

April 19 – May 17, 2020

Jesus was the first incarnation; the church – as the body of Christ – is the second incarnation. God’s intent for the church is to carry forward and expand the mission of Jesus. This series uses excerpts from the book of Acts to highlight the unique role of the church within the story of God.

The book of Acts is Luke’s follow-up to his gospel. Luke tells the story of Jesus; Acts tells the story of the early church. It joins together what Jesus had begun to do with what the church continued to do. Both books are written to Theophilus, whose name means “Lover of God.” The book traces the expansion of the church from its beginning in Jerusalem through the missionary journeys of Paul.

April 19 – To All People (Acts 1:1-11, 2:5-6)

Main Point: God’s intent for the church is for it to be a place for all people.

April 26 – The Good News (Acts 2:1-41)

Main Point: Through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus all people have the opportunity to be forgiven and to live a new life.

May 3 – The New Community (Acts 2:42-47)

Main Point: God designed the church to function as a model for how-to live-in community with others.

May 10 – Advancing and Expanding (Acts 2:47, 5:12-16, 6:1, 8:4)

Main Point: Rather than becoming complacent or content, the early church shared the message of Jesus far and wide.

May 17 – The Next Chapter

Main Point: Every generation of Christ-followers has a responsibility to build, equip, and extend the church in their own time and context.

Quick FAQ’s

How Long Will I Have to be There?

This depends on how long-winded the preacher gets! Normally, the worship service will last between 65-70 minutes.

What Should I Wear?

We dress casual (you’ll see jeans and shorts – even during winter). You’ll also see people in business casual attire. Dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable.

Where Do My Kids Go?

Your kids are a top priority at Mountainview. Nursery through fifth grade stay on the first floor. You’ll see our children’s check-in desk when you enter the front door. Our children’s programming features a large group time with acting, singing, and more. Then they break-off into age-appropriate groups where they dig deeper into the lessons taught in the large group experience. It’s an integrated approach similar to what you would find at churches like North Point in Atlanta.

What If I Need Someone to Pray with Me?

Our prayer team is available at the close of every service for those who need someone to pray with.

What Do I Call Your Pastor?

Though he has been called reverend, pastor, father, and even most holy reverend, he prefers to be called Ken. Look for him before and after each worship service in the lobby.
