Sunday Service in Budrio - Acts 2:1-13

Tomorrow morning we'll have our monthly service to worship God and to proclaim His Word in Budrio.
The community is gathering around
Impatto A Budrio is made by friends from both Nuova Vita and San Lazzaro churches who are living in the area together with local friends we are getting to know.

We really enjoy the Lord's provision of a room in the café of
Le Torri dell'Acqua, the theatre and modern art-gallery right
at the centre of Budrio well known as a cultural meeting point.
Tomorrow some friends from the churches Forte Torre,
Nuova Vita and San Lazzaro will join us for the service.
We'll have with us also Ester Montefalcone,
National Director of Youth for Christ Italia.

At 10.00 am we'll have a family time with coffee & cakes
and at 10.30 am we'll look together at Acts 2:1-13.

"And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance." Acts 2:4 (ESV)


Tomorrow Jonathan Gilmore will preach God's Word to us.
Jonathan and his wife Annette during the summer will join us as co-leader in the ImpattoABudrio church-plant (Jonathan is also director of Porterbrook Italia and of Acts29 Italia).

Tomorrow we'll begin our service with a time of prayer characterized by thanksgiving and casting a vision for God's work in our community.

We'll thank the Lord for the fellowship He's giving us with other local churches in Bologna.
For the many ways these churches are partnering with us for the Budrio church-plant.

We desire to see God at work in our lives to be Gospel communities in our local communities and to see more churches cooperating together to plant new churches.
We'll love as ImpattoABudrio to be soon involved in helping a new church-plant as we are helped now.
We'll thank the Lord for the doors He has opened in Budrio especially with local authorities, through the food-bank collection and the team from Arkansas Baptist School.
We pray for the ways the social services are expressing their appreciation of our service to the community and we desire to see God at work in a local family house for problematic teens.

We'll thank the Lord for the doors He has opened in the local school and sport centre of Budrio.
We desire to see God working in the same amazing way when we'll have with us the Nomad YfC team in May.
