Apostolic Father (within life of the Apostles)

Wrote 7 preserved letters to the Churches that reveal:
1) early theology on the sacraments
2) three “offices” bishops / elders/ deacons
3) ecclesiology (Greek root word meaning “assembly, called out ones”, church leadership, church role in salvation, church discipline etc).
We had a great Easter Sunday Celebration of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ with Pastor Sam George from India preaching!
We love and support Pastor Sam, his wife, children, adopted children, and ministry in Tenkasi, Tamil Nadu!
We are Celebrating a Passover Seder Eucharist Friday April 3rd at the Weddington Swim and Racquet Club 7-8:45pm.
We have about 26 currently signed up.
Please let Corina know if you are planning to come.
It will be our first one, casual, with Jewish readings and prayers that moves into the Eucharist to celebrate how and why Jesus changed this 2,000 year old High Holy Day to be about Himself, the Passover Lamb.
Come join us.
