Sunday Service in Budrio - Acts 6:8-7:60

Tomorrow afternoon  we'll have our 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.

We'll continue with Stefano our series on the Book of Acts.
Tomorrow we'll engage with Acts 6:8-7:60 and we'll see the life, ministry and death of Stephen.
These will be the main headings: 
I. The power of the gospel lived.
II. The perspective of the gospel testified.

Jenny will lead the time with
the little ones engaging on
the same topic, looking together
at Acts 6:8-10.

Together we'll see how the testimony Stephen was able to give in front of the opponents to the Gospel, was the fulfilment of Jesus' promise in Luke 21:12-15


... they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name's sake. This will be your opportunity to bear witness. Settle it therefore in your minds not to meditate beforehand how to answer, for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.
Luke 21:12-15

Tomorrow, in following the pattern of Acts 1:8, we'll end our service with a time of prayer characterized by thanksgiving and casting a vision for God's work in our community and globally.

We'll have a time of thanksgiving for Miriam the YfC intern that worked with us in these months and now is preparing for her new mission opportunity in Mexico.
