Wednesday Night ACTS
Need a little spiritual rest in the middle of the week? Join Millbrookers each Wednesday night during the school year for the best meat and two in town, and a short program called Wednesday Acts.
Every Wednesday, September-May
Wednesday Acts is an idea inspired by the church described in Acts 2: 42-47
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Awe came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved.
Fellowship was central to the earliest church. At its core was the breaking of bread. At Millbrook, we believe that Wednesdays nights provide an opportunity to rest, to be refueled by a good meal, and to reflect on powerful words for the week ahead.
Each Wednesday, we explore topics that focus us on God’s call for our community: How can we share God’s love in Raleigh and beyond? Sometimes it’s Bible Study; sometimes we invite speakers from local non-profits and ministries to tell us about the work they are doing; sometimes we have game night; sometimes we focus on prayer. Regardless of activity, we are always focused on learning to be better disciples, and learning how to be instruments of God’s love to one another.
Past topics have included: Matthew 25: Understanding Our Call to Help the Least, Then and Now; Writing and Drawing in Prayer; What Does It Mean To Be Baptist?; and The Four Gospels: Communities of Faith. We have also welcomed speakers from Church World Service, Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, The Green Chair, Baptist Retirement Homes of North Carolina, and the North Carolina Council of Churches.
