Our Summer Journey!

June 2 - September 1, 2024

Ever wonder how the Church began? This summer, the book of Acts comes alive! Ignite your faith with a 13-week journey through the book of Acts, exploring the birth of the Church and the Great Commission. We'll uncover the Church's mission, the power of unity, and how to live out the Great Commission in our own lives. Let's be inspired by the early Church and become the Church God desires us to be! atch our intro video to Awe: A Forty Day Journey:
You'll also want to check out the Hometown Church Podcast as we go through this series where we'll be going into topics of Acts more deeply. The podcasts are available on our app, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. Search for “Hometown Church Podcast.” There are also videos of them available on YouTube HERE.
