Rescue Begins September 12th, 2023 at 5:30 PM; We will meet in the St. Peter’s school cafeteria at 5:30 PM on Tuesday evenings.
What is the Rescue Project
- Rescue is a multi-week event of great meals, great conversation and answers to life’s tough questions. Fr. Riccardo and the team at ACTS XXIX have formulated a plan to bring people together to discuss these questions and how our Faith provides answers to those questions. Inspired by this response to the life-changing news of the gospel, St. Peter’s launched The Rescue Project in 2022, and will provide another multi-week experience geared at building a culture that shares the heart of the gospel and equips us for mission this fall.
What Happens at Rescue?
Food – Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee and appetizers, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Rescue. We start with food, because it’s a great way to encourage community and get to know each other.
Video – The videos are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Generally thirty minutes long, they explore the big issues around life and unpack some important questions many people want answered.
Conversation – Probably the most important part of any Rescue evening is the chance to share thoughts and ideas to discuss in a small group. It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.
Acts XXIX passionately believes that the most urgent evangelistic task is the compelling proclamation of the gospel in such a way that people are overwhelmed and brought to a decision to entrust themselves to Jesus Christ. This task is all the more urgent with every passing day.
What is the gospel?
St. Paul tells us the gospel is the power of God for salvation. In other words, it’s not just news, let alone ordinary news. The gospel is the explosive, extraordinary, and life-changing news of Jesus’ defeat of the power of Sin and Death. It’s the news that gives hope!
ACTS XXIX has traveled across the nation the past few years, they have witnessed the overwhelming impact the gospel is having on everyone who hears it. People are hungry for truly good news and for an understanding of the mission that God has uniquely entrusted to them.
