Church of the Holy Spirit: Acts of the Apostles
7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in the Community Room
Begins on Sept. 13 through Nov. 29, 2023
The most thrilling and adventurous book of the Bible, Acts shows us Christianity being lived for the first time. It takes us to some of the great cities of the ancient world. It introduces us to all kinds of people: apostles, prophets, martyrs, philosophers, governors, kings, merchants, jailers, and sailors. It narrates for us a variety of events: dramatic spiritual experiences, missionary journeys, trials and imprisonments, powerful speeches that provoke dramatic responses, sea voyages and a shipwreck, and the clash of ancient cultures. It invites us to see the adventure continuing on and on in our lives.
The second half of Acts narrates the missionary journeys of Paul and his companions. It takes us with him from Syria, to Asia Minor, Greece, and finally to the capital of the Roman Empire. We read this narrative not as objective observers, but as members of this same evangelizing church. We are invited into these courageous journeys because the adventure continues into the lives of all those who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ. Acts begins in Jerusalem and ends in Rome, but the story is open-ended, for it is lived in the church and its members in every age.
This session for Scripture will be from Threshold Bible Study authored by Stephen Binz. Each session will start promptly at 7:00pm in the Community Room.
Materials will be provided at the first introductory session. Cost is $20.00.
