Proclaiming the Kingdom of God

The Acts of FUMC Elmhurst: Stories of the Kingdom of God

In the style of the Acts of the Apostles, Pastor Joe is inviting you to submit stories of how you have proclaimed the Kingdom of God over the past year.  He’s not looking for another Pentecost story or miracle story but stories of how in the midst of a pandemic you have proclaimed God’s love for the world.

Your story should include your name, what you did and how you and others experienced your proclamation.  You may include a relevant picture or graphic.  Please limit your text to 100-150 words.  For examples, consider Acts 16:11-15; 4:32-35; 13:1-3.

Please send your submissions to Sharon Phillips at by April 30, 2021.  Your stories will be compiled and shared with the congregation and on the website.

Jesus called the Twelve together and he gave them power and authority over all demons and to heal sicknesses. He sent them out to proclaim God’s kingdom and to heal the sick.  Luke 9:1-2
