in whom we were chosen before the foundation of the world to be adopted as sons. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace. Ephesians 1:3-7

Christianity Explored - Uncover Luke

Tomorrow afternoon we'll conclude our Christianity Explored Bible Study,
for every age-group!
We have now a regular group of students,
so after having completed our studies on
the Gospel of Mark, we'll interact with the Gospel of Luke, using the Uncover material.

We run these public meetings hosted by the Café of the theatre we use for our Sunday meetings as church!





Uncover - See for Yourself!,
is an interactive Bible Study  created by UCCF to engage with Luke's Gospel, which was written as an investigation into the life and purpose of Jesus Christ.
Uncover will help us to investigate Jesus’ claims and experience the life he offers.

Tomorrow with Stefano we'll engage with Luke 24:36-49 and we'll see that it is clear that none of Jesus’ followers expected him to rise from the dead. These sceptics came to believe in the resurrection not because it was easy for them to do so, but because they were convinced by the power of the evidence. So we'll ask ourselves: What do we make of the evidence for Jesus’ resurrection from the dead?

Sunday Service: Christ in the faith of Isaac - Hebrews 11:13-16, 20

Tomorrow we'll have our morning service
to worship God together and to proclaim
His Word in Budrio.






We are glad for the Lord's provision of the main room in
Le Torri dell'Acqua, the theatre&modern art-gallery right at the centre of Budrio, well known as a cultural meeting point.


At 10.30 we'll start our service continuing our series on Hebrews 11-12.
With Colin we'll engage
with Hebrews 11:13-16, 20: 
Christ in the faith of Isaac!
Together we’ll see the beauty of Christ, because where Isaac chose to disobey God and to go with his will, in order to save us, Jesus chose the way of the cross, 
obeying the Father and saying to God:
not my will be done, but yours!




Justin & Grace will lead our children's programme
based on The Gospel Project for kids,
in which week by week kids engage with the same passages from Genesis and families will have activities to keep interacting with God's Word during the week.

with Hebrews 11:7:

We'll ask ourselves: how are we waiting the Lord's return? For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man! Matthew 24:37



Nino, Marco & Raffaela will lead our children's programme
based on The Gospel Project for kids,

can sets us free, so we'll be free indeed!

Christianity Explored - Uncover Luke

Tomorrow afternoon we'll continue our Christianity Explored Bible Study,
for every age-group!
We have now a regular group of students,
so after having completed our studies on
the Gospel of Mark, we'll interact with the Gospel of Luke, using the Uncover material.

Uncover - See for Yourself!,
is an interactive Bible Study  created by UCCF to engage with Luke's Gospel, which was written as an investigation into the life and purpose of Jesus Christ.
Uncover will help us to investigate Jesus’ claims and experience the life he offers.

Tomorrow with Stefano we'll engage with Luke 22:66-71, 23:13-25, 32-56 and we'll see that on the one hand, Jesus is coming as the long-promised Jewish Messiah. On the other hand, he’s a dead man walking. Repeatedly Jesus has told his followers that awaiting him in Jerusalem are betrayal, arrest and execution at the hands of the authorities. How can Jesus be both a conquering king and at the same time one who is going to be murdered by his enemies?

Sunday Service: Christ in the faith of Abel - Hebrews 11:1-4

Tomorrow we'll have our morning service

At 10.30 we'll start our service introducing our new series on Hebrews 11-12.
With Stefano we'll engage
with Hebrews 11:1-4: 
Christ in the faith of Abel!
We'll be exposed to the beauty of Christ,
the mediator of a new covenant, whose sprinkled blood speaks a better word than the blood of Abel! Hebrews 12:24



 
Justin, Carli & Raffaela will lead our children's programme
based on The Gospel Project for kids,
in which week by week kids engage with the same passages from Genesis and families will have activities to keep interacting with God's Word during the week.
