With social media, just about anyone can be an "influencer" with the right content, good timing, and a little bit of luck. Invent a new dance, share a funny take, catch the right moment on camera, and you could get millions of views. Some "influencers" mostly just use their platforms to get free stuff, but once in a while, you find someone who uses their platform to talk about things that actually matter. Obviously they didn't have social media back in Jesus' day, but in the Bible, the book of Acts is filled with stories about "influencers" who had important things to say. In this 4-week series, Pass It On, we’ll hear their stories, discover that our lives can pass on the good news, and learn how to pass on the good news to unexpected people, to our families, and with humility.
Have you ever had a secret that you had a little too much fun keeping (or not keeping)? Maybe it was a wild rumor you heard, or a funny story you couldn't wait to share, or a really terrible picture of your friend you wanted everyone to see. Or maybe it was just a nice, wholesome piece of good news! Whenever we have some secret knowledge other people want to hear, it's hard not to enjoy that moment of feeling powerful, in control, and the center of attention. That's extra true when the "secret" you have to share is literally life-changing. In the Bible, these two guys Paul and Silas were on a mission to share the good news of Jesus with the world. As a result, they gained a pretty big following. But instead of making themselves the center of attention, they simply pointed people toward Jesus. And just like Paul and Silas, Jesus calls us to pass on the good news with humility too.
Join us Thursday nights as we study from the Word of God to grow as the "sons and daughters of God." We also will take time out for some fun and games, relaxing and connecting. See ya' there!!
