We launch a new series on Acts called "Remarkable" in October. Here's the desciption:
To be remarkable is to be worth noticing or commenting on. What does it take to be a remarkable church—a church worth noticing? The book of Acts chronicles the first thirty years of the church. Thirty years that changed the world and the course of human history. A church that was not perfect, yet it could be described as nothing less than remarkable. It was most definitely noticed—sometimes “enjoying the favor of all the people” and growing exponentially (Acts 2:47) and, at other times, experiencing great waves of persecution and murderous threats (Acts 8:1; 9:1)…yet still growing exponentially. This series looks at seven distinguishing characteristics of this remarkable church in Acts, seven marks that can make the church today worth noticing, a church that people can’t help calling remarkable.
