A Message from Pastor Rodney:
November 23, 2014
Before we turn to the season of Advent next week, we finish the first part of our study of Acts, as we work our way through this yearís theme: Becoming the Church of Christ
The Church is a community, and weíve learned a great deal about what it means, but each community is made up of individuals. Last week, we learned a little about Philip, Simon, and the Ethiopian Eunuch. This week our focus is on Saul. Saul is the chief enemy of the Church, the primary persecutor of early Christians. We witnessed him ďbreaking badĒ with the stoning of Stephen. Now we witness the great surprise of Godís call in Acts. The enemy becomes a brother! This conversion is shocking, but the truth is, all conversion is a bit shocking. Itís Godís work in turning someoneís life around. If you are curious about conversion or are looking for Godís surprising turn around, come worship with us. Parkside Church is a place where you belong.
Jesus said, "Come to me all you who are weary & carry heavy burdens, & I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 NLT
