Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom: (20 weeks, continued into the Spring 2022 from Fall 2021)- Thursday nights at 6:30PM- 8:30PM virtually, starts on Sept. 23rd (Their first meeting will be in person in the Gathering Space on Sept. 23rd)
The book of Acts shows the work of Christ continuing beyond his resurrection as he empowers believers with the Holy Spirit to do his work. It follows the journeys of the Apostles as they preach the Good News and expand the Kingdom of Heaven throughout the earth. Acts is the story of how a few Christians, empowered by the Holy Spirit, were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth. They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all of this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men. Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom traces how the gospel witness spread outward in waves from Jerusalem, and reveals how the seeds of Church structure and authority took root.
This bible study will be meeting virtually, except for 4 sessions, when they may meet in person in the Gathering Space– Cost: $40
