New Wednesday Evening Bible Study

Starting on Wednesday evening, September 13, we will begin a new Bible Study class on the Book of Acts. We will focus on the life of the early Church, and augment the text with readings from contemporary writers and early Church Fathers, as well as historical work from modern scholarship. Everyone is welcome! No prerequisites! This should be a great way both to study the Scriptures, as well as build community. Catechumens and inquirers are very welcome.


(22 images)

“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners,
 but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
 Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”   - Eph. 2: 19-22
