In the simplest of terms, the church is the body of Jesus Christ…but what does that mean? What does that look like? In his book, The Church: God’s Pilgrim People, Bishop Zac Niringiye presses the issue even further: “Was or is the church Jesus’ idea? Did Jesus have in mind the birth of a community that would be identified as church? … What does ‘church’ that is true to Jesus’ idea of church look like?”
Join us this spring as we ask these very questions, guided by the wisdom of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. In honor of our recently passed Pastor Emeritus, Earl Palmer, we will draw from his 2022 book on this letter to the church. And, as an extra special treat, Bishop Zac will join us as our guest preacher on Pentecost Sunday to begin the series!
