SUNDAY JUNE 27
This Week's Message: ACT 3: WHOLENESS
If you took a new convert to Christianity and locked him or her in a room with a Bible, he or she will come out believing that they are part of a community passionately in love with the Lord Jesus who is actively involved in healing people and seeing supernatural workings of the Holy Spirit. It would take a clever theologian with no experience of the supernatural to convince that person otherwise. In our story today, we see the apostles step into the ministry of healing that Jesus regularly modeled. Do you believe that Jesus wants his church today to move in this way? To regularly pray for healing? To exercise the power of God against the crippling work of the enemy in people's lives? How might repentance and turning to God play a crucial role in the healing of the world?

ELMHURST CRC DAY OF GIVING - WE DID IT...AGAIN! THANK YOU.
**UPDATE** We did it…AGAIN! Yes, we reached our Celebrate Day of Giving Goal last week Tuesday of over $250,000. But, after a few cleared checks and generous-hearted folks (who like even numbers)— we blew it out to our reach goal of $300,000! What does this mean? It means we’re on firm footing for the reopening of fall ministries.
