Sunday Service - Acts 17:16-34

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 10.00 am we'll enjoy our time as a church family
with a lovely breakfast together.

At 10.30 am we'll continue with Stefano
our series on the Book of Acts.

Tomorrow we'll engage with Acts 17:16-34 and
together we'll see that to be missional means:
to participate,
to comprehend,
to contextualize.

Jenny will lead the time with
the little ones engaging on
the same topic, looking at Acts 17:23.

Together we'll see how to live and share the Gospel in Athens, for Paul meant to go where people were, to understand people's felt needs, and to be understandable to the community he was reaching!

Tomorrow, we'll continue to follow the pattern of Acts 1:8, so we'll start 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 pray for the Acts29 Europe conference in Nottingham and for Jonathan, Stefano, Matteo, Justin and Carli from Budrio's church that will be at the conference.

We'll pray for "out neighbour",
and specifically for the "walk for the schools"
a walk around Budrio organized by the 
local walking group to raise money for 
local primary and middle schools.

As a church we decided to be part of this project. This will be a great opportunity to be part of our community and to have natural Gospel conversations with fellow walkers!

We'll also pray for "the end of the earth",
and specifically for Kristin that is serving in Dubai with YfC Arabian Gulf!

After the service we'll have a pic-nic fellowship lunch in the local park. During this time we'll also share the Lord's supper.

At 3pm we'll then join our friends for the 
"Walk for the Schools"!
