Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Beauty from Rubble 6/29

Dear River Reach Family,

Therefore, those who had been scattered went about preaching the word. 5 Philip went down to the city of Samaria and began proclaiming Christ to them.

Acts 8:4-5

When everything seems to come crashing down around us we often feel like caving to discouragement and despair. We might ask questions like, “How could God let something like this happen?” or “How can anything good come from this?” Our passage for this Sunday reminds us that our Lord’s sovereign control is working all things together for His glory and our good. We don’t need to see God’s plan. We simply need to trust Him.

Sermon: “Beauty from Rubble” – Acts 8:1-8
