40 Days of Learning!

Sunday, September 11-October 20, 2022

Jesus gathered around him disciples—that is, those who would learn from him. He told those of us who are weary and burdened to take up his yoke—his teaching—and learn from him. But he wasn’t just talking about “book learning.” Too many of us have learned facts but haven’t really learned about life and how to truly walk with God. That’s a fear with our 40 Days of Learning—we will approach it as information only. The truth is, there is a lot of information in the 40 Days of Learning, but please recall that Jesus told us not just to teach disciples, but to teach disciples to obey. Our hope is that these 40 days will draw us closer to God himself, not just the concepts presented.

We hope you will join us on this journey of learning! It includes 40 daily readings to begin on Sunday, September 11. You can access these daily readings through a printed booklet that is available now or through a daily email delivered to your inbox during the emphasis. The format is simple: there is a short (one page) reading for each of the 40 days. We pray that this will both encourage you and equip you in your desire to learn more about God, others, and yourself as together we pursue life in Christ with passion and purpose! You can get the free booklet on Sundays in the Welcome Center OR by calling our church office. If you would prefer to receive the daily reading as an email each day, you can click on "CONTACT US" in the Main Menu above and leave your email address with the message 40 Days of Learning. As a final option, you can get a PDF of the booklet HERE

The 40 Days of Learning begins Sunday, September 11, 2022, and goes through Thursday, October 20, 2022. In addition to the daily readings, there will be six messages in Sunday Morning Worship as well as special lessons in our Life Groups. (Click HERE to see the list of upcoming messages.)

A Study of James

James, the (half) brother of Jesus, was once a skeptic but came to believe that his brother was indeed the Son of God! He became the leader of the first church in existence, the church in Jerusalem. He was a man of great wisdom and majored on the practical aspects of life in Christ. His message, written at the time to those of Jewish background who had come to believe in Jesus, is in many ways reminiscent of Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. While we will take several weeks to study the complete letter, the first chapter speaks especially to the trials we face in this life. Come be a part of this very practical series of messages!

Our worship begins at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday morning. You can also join us via livestream or watch a reply on our YouTube Channel. (See livestreaming menu item above.)

We also invite you to try out a Life Group—a small group Bible study—on Sundays at 9:40 a.m., prior to our worship at 11:00 a.m.

Everyone Needs a Church...ACBC Greeting06

To answer the questions of life . . .

Questions like, “Who am I?” “What’s my purpose?” “What is God really like?” and “Why do bad things happen?” Jesus Christ and His church are uniquely qualified to answer life’s most basic questions.

To share life’s happiness...

The precious moments of life are meant to be shared: the beginning of new life together in marriage, the birth of a new child, the baptism of new believers... these milestones, plus the joy of simple pleasures, are enhanced by the community of a loving congregation.

To help face tragedies...

Everyone faces trouble in life: sorrows, disappointments, sickness, death. Needed support and comfort flows freely from those who share a common faith. How much we need one another in times like these!

To teach about God and the purposes He has for us...

Survey after survey reveals an overwhelming belief in God. But what is He like? How do we know Him? God has answered those questions through the Bible, the special book that is the guide for the church.

To share God’s message and help those in need...

We can do more together than we can do alone. God has always called together a community of believers to help one another and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. His message can bring healing to a hurting world. Yes, everyone needs a church, and at Ancient City Church, we would love to be yours!

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart: and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Jesus (Matthew 11.28)
