Following Jesus is a growing experience. New Journey presents educational opportunities that inform, inspire, and motivate church and community members. As a community of faith, we continue to learn from each other, from various perspectives.
Bible Study followed by Holy Communion
We are studying the Book of Acts. We will discover together the life of the early church, particularly the witness of Peter and Paul. It was an unsettling time then, too. Perhaps we’ll discover some encouragement for our present time.
Before Bible Study begins, prepare a plate with bread and a cup with wine or grape juice so that we are ready to move into the brief Communion service together on the completion of our Bible Study.
It is a natural for Lutherans and friends to hold together the Word of God and the sharing of Holy Communion. Scripture shapes us and Communion empowers us for life in the world.
South Sudan to Arizona
Peter dut Angon (a Lost Boy of Sudan) and family shared their story as they left their family in South Sudan and came to Arizona. Peter’s journey started in 1987 when he left Sudan for Ethiopia because of the civil war and the killing of his father, arriving in 2000 in Arizona. His wife and children joined him in 2013. They are members of New Journey.
