How to be a Main Character

Can people change? Even if we’re hopeful about our own ability to grow and change, most of us are skeptical about whether our enemies can ever change. In Acts 9, Luke tells the story of Ananias who was called to support Saul’s transformation despite the fact that Saul had intended harm to people like Ananias. Join us as we reflect on the hope that people can change for the better.

Series: Empowered Have you ever felt powerless? Have news stories about the problems of the world disheartened you because there doesn’t seem to be anything you can do about it? Powerless is not how God describes us or created us.

Jesus told his disciples that God would give us power and then the disciples lives were forever changed. Exploring stories of power in the book of Acts, we’ll describe how God wants to empower you to be a changemaker in the world today.
