On Sunday mornings, the pastor has been taking is through 1 Corinthians and was in Chapter 14 before taking a break the last few months to fulfill some responsibilities. During that time, the elders and others have been teaching from the pulpit on Sunday mornings. Before he returns to 1 Corinthians, our pastor is now sharing with us some of what he has been working on during his time away from the pulpit; particularly with regard to a very important first principle of the Christian faith that is not included in either the Antioch School or BILD's First Principles series: the righteousness of God by faith.
Update: By the grace of God, we're working with several other churches in the Western New York region through Sundoulos (http://www.sundouloswny.org/), through BILD International's First Principles series, and through Antioch School.
We sold our building at 34 Elam Place. We're looking forward to doing more with regard to missions and following the Antioch tradition that we see presented in Acts and the Epistles. The closing occurred and the State of New York gave its imprimatur on the change from a commercial structure (in this case, a church) to a residential one. We don't, as yet, have a place to meet, but we're praying about that and will go where the Lord leads. We are still having our small groups and we will announce our Sunday meeting place when we have it.
Update: October 14, 2012
We have a great opportunity to begin tonight in establishing our Sunday Evening Services. We have signed a lease, and will be meeting regularly at "Schiller Park Senior Services" 2057 Genesse St. Buffalo NY 14211. We will begin tonight at 6:00 PM-7:30. We are still trusting God for an open door for Sunday Mornings. We continue to have small group fellowships throughout the city and suburbs and are excited about meeting Sunday Morning and Sunday evening in two different locations. We also have three different locations for our Antioch School and Sundoulos' Antioch Journey's. To God be the Glory!!!
