Ten Churches

June 30, 2019

At first glance, the churches we have today don’t resemble the churches of the New Testament. Modern architecture, ministry activities, and denominational structures are more a product of the modern world than the biblical example.

Each Sunday this summer, we’ll identify and study a specific church in the New Testament and see what God would have us learn about our own.

These names and others from “behind the scenes,” as it were, played roles that we don’t remember quite as well. This fall, we’ll look into their stories and the things that they did to make the stories of their more famous counterparts possible.What's this item about? What makes it interesting?
