Life in the Early Christian Church
Acts 2; 1 Corinthians 16; Romans 16
Speaker's Picture
Wednesday Evening Service,  May 19, 2010

So often when we read the Scriptures we recast events in our minds so that they align with our own experience. When it comes to the gathering of the church, we may imagine a large assembly of people sitting in rows looking at a pastor. But the original gathering of local churches is far removed from how the western church normally meets today. The purpose of this session is to inform our appreciation of the NT by discovering the way the first churches gathered in the ancient world.
