Encounter Teams

Acts 2:42

Elder Roger Turner

And they continued steadfastly in the Apostle's doctrine and fellowship; in breaking of bread and in prayer.  The Encounter Team, Acts 2:42, is a collection of members seeking to follow the Apostolic example as found in scripture (Acts 2:42).  As a team, Acts 2:42 is committed to reaching the community, enhancing relationships, studying God's word, and meeting community needs.  We invite all to join us!
