Sermon Notes

   Today we are beginning a new message series on Paul’s letter to the Philippians. It has been called The Epistle (or letter) of Excellent Things and the Epistle of Joy. We will look at the city of Philippi in the Macedonia part of northern Greece and why it is important commercially and militarily.

   We will see how Paul and his team are led by God’s Spirit, how they reach the local Jewish women, minister to a fortuneteller, are falsely accused, and illegally beaten and thrown into prison.    

   The gospel is then shared with the jailer and his family. We will end with looking at what we can learn from this beginning of the church in Philippi.
