Preaching Theme Sept -Dec 2008

by Colin Dexter

We are going to be looking at the lives of Elijah & Elisha . (see 1 Kings 17 where Elijah suddenly appears)

These were two remarkable prophets & we we want to discover how God worked in their lives & how those who came into contact with them were affected.

There are some powerful events & miracles that occur but also deep emotion & trials

Start reading from 1 Kings 17 to be prepared.

Preaching Theme

by Colin Dexter

In Agape we are looking at some of the people who were touched by God in Acts. These people were just like you and me, in different walks of life & from different backgrounds. Each was challenged in some way by the message of Christ. How did they respond? How did their lives change?

These were the people around at the beginning & their stories are recorded for a purpose. We hope to learn from them as in a sense, we are all still part of the story of ACTS.
