2020 Vision for the Church

How Can We Impact Society That's Without God?

Acts 17:16-34

Paul didn’t come to Athens as a sightseer but as a soul-winner.  He saw thousands in a religious city without a savior.  Let’s see what he did?


The city full of pagan ideas (16-21)

  • A city of idols
  • A city of philosophy

2 philosophies dominated in that time period, they tried to consider the meaning of life


They followed the ideas of Aristotle.  They taught that pleasure and the avoidance of pain are the chief end of man.  They did not deny the existence of the gods, but believed they did not interfere in the affairs of man.  They were taught to enjoy life now for there is no after-life. 



They followed the ideas of Plato.  They taught that self-discipline is the greatest virtue.   They believed self-discipline came from being indifferent to both pleasure and pain, reaching the place where one feels nothing.  In contrast to the Epicurean’s Deism, the Stoics were pantheists. 


A city of architecture and art

  • Areopagus
  • Mars Hill

The communication to philosophical intellectuals (22-34)

  • He shared God’s g_______________ as the creator (24)
  • He shared God’s g_______________ as the provider (25)
  • He shared God’s g_______________ as the ruler (26-29)
  • He shared God’s g_______________ with a savior (30-34)

The consideration for practical interacting

   *4 ways to approach our culture with the Gospel

  • Approach the Gospel from the audience’s p_______________________________ (22)
  • Use the familiar to introduce the __________________ (23)
  • Develop the theme _______________________ (24-29)
  • Apply the truth to the ____________ of the audience (30-34)

   *3 common responses to the Gospel

  • I_____________________ rejection (18) 
  • I_____________________ acceptance (34)
  • I_____________________ (32)

Prayer Spotlight

Darrel & Cathy Miller, Morgantown, IN

We are located in beautiful Brown County Indiana, about forty- five minutes south of Indianapolis. The closest community to the north is 6 miles away and Nashville is 11 miles to the south. There is a blend of vocations represented here but most people work out of the community in Bloomington, Columbus, or Indianapolis. The Millers have been serving here since 1981. 

PRAYER REQUESTS: Please pray for us as we minister to children and families. Also pray for the youth group to be challenged spiritually and to grow. Pray how we might most effectively minister in this rural area.
