Clear Springs/Siloam Charge United Methodist Churches Sermon Series
We are excited to invite you to our sermon series about the Book of Acts.  Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection was only the beginning of the story of the Christian church.

This sermon series will follow the new television series airing on NBC each week called A.D.  These sermons will cover the first ten chapters of the Book of Acts.  The A.D. television series, produced by Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, picks up where their, “The Bible”, mini series left off. 
A.D. explores the epic journey of the first followers of Christ and their struggles to survive and share their faith in the early days of the most powerful global movement in history.  Come join us to learn more and grow in your faith as we explore the Book of Acts each week.  Experience this week’s sermon, “ Living A Resurrection Life”, as we start this series.

 You may join us at 9:30am at Clear Springs Church, which is located at 4321 South Main St Extension or at 11am at Siloam Church located at 2380 Hwy 47 East.      For more information call (336)460-0831.
