Summer Days

Welcome to the Summer Days 2023!

With the day of Pentecost behind them, in Acts chapter 3 we see Peter and John in the temple area, in what is known as Solomon’s Porch, speaking to a crowd astonished to see Peter lift up a lame man “in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth”. So Peter had the opportunity to preach to the people, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, and that the times of refreshing may come from the face of the Lord…” (Acts 3:19-20) The chosen people did not yet accept Jesus as their Messiah, but everyone was offered the opportunity to have their sins forgiven and to experience refreshing from the face of Jesus.

Peter’s message has not become obsolete in two thousand years, but remains the truest truth. When we gather as Christ’s church and encounter Him, we experience strengthening and refreshing (Romans 1:11-12). The Summer Days in Kiljava provide an excellent opportunity for this. Once you have come there, you will not want to miss a single summer. We are grateful to be there again to admire the face of the Lord in the light of the Word and to be refreshed in our common faith.

Welcome to join us!
