Celebration of Liberty 2021 Recap

 

Thousands of people filled the sanctuary this year to celebrate freedom in this country, to honor those who sacrificed much for that freedom, and to celebrate our ultimate freedom in Christ. Not only was the program moving, but the fact that we were able to have a full house of PEOPLE this year made it even more emotional. Enjoy a look back on the 34th Carolina Celebration of Liberty.

Isolation Eats – Whipped Coffee

During this time of being sometimes stuck inside, most of us are having to learn how to operate out of our homes a little more than usual. This means that we’re spending more time in the kitchen, but not getting to share the fruits of our labor with our friends. For this web series that we’re calling Isolation Eats, I hope that we can spend a little time together in the kitchen, draw some inspiration for new dishes, and share some recipes.

This week we are seeking to dive into Acts 13 as we follow Barnabas and Saul further on their journey proclaiming the Gospel.

Sunday morning we took some time to look at some key phrases in the scripture as this is another way to go about studying scripture. Rob took us through a few specific phrases which we will talk about in a bit, but it’s helpful to continue the study yourself looking into other key words and things that stood out to you in the passage.

 

Go on right now and read Acts 13 in its entirety, and jot down to yourself some key phrases, words and ideas that the scripture is talking about.


Some phrases you may have written down during your time in the word:
