Being the Church - Lessons from the Book of Acts
Sunday, Dr. Bob Kaylor will continue our series "Being the Church" with a look at the powerful teaching of the apostles as a catalyst for bringing people to Christ. The apostle Philip was a great proclaimer of the gospel and this week's texts, and their companion devotions at devotions.tlumc.org, invite us to look at the ways in which God used ordinary people to proclaim his word and how he can use us as well:
- Monday: Acts 8:1-3 - A church in danger
- Tuesday: Acts 8:4-8 - Philip preaches in Samaria
- Wednesday: Acts 8:9-13 - A radical conversion
- Thursday: Acts 8:14-25 - Not-for-profit power
- Friday: Acts 8:26-35 - Philip and the eunuch
- Saturday: Acts 8:36-40 - A new life

Pastor Bob Kaylor
Pastor Joe Iovino
NorthGate United Methodist Congregation held its first worship service on March 10, 1991, in an abandoned truck stop at Exit 158 and Baptist Road. The service was conducted by the Rev. Don Bloor, the organizing pastor. We were chartered as a United Methodist Fellowship on August 11, 1991.
Three years later, on March 10, 1994, we were forced to move, because the truck stop was sold to Brookhart's Building Centers. Two area churches offered to church-share with us. The offer to move to the Church at Woodmoor was accepted by the Fellowship, since they were willing to let us use their church building on Sunday afternoons. We met for worship and Sunday School from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. each Sunday. In time, the desire to move worship to the morning hour was instrumental in the congregation seeking another location for the church
