This week we start our series Culture Encounter, with our first sermon aptly titled Encounter Culture.  We start by going to the book of Acts and seeing Paul encouter the culture of Athens (Acts 17) . We see that he has both PASSION for what is true and right and COMPASSION for real people and reaching them with the Gospel.  To see this in action in the Old Testament, we go to the account of Naaman and Elijah (2 Kings 5) and see Passion and Compassion in action.  We learn from both how to encounter real people in our culture today with the hope of the Gospel.
