Acts Part 1 - Jesus’ Witnesses, Empowered by His Spirit – Chapters 1-12*
The Gospel of Luke recorded what Jesus began to do and teach. In Acts, Luke records what happened after Jesus’ ascension to the Father. Jesus empowered the apostles to testify in the power of the Holy Spirit for salvation and living every day for the gospel. Learn how God spread the gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection and how you too can witness to others. See the power of God to endure persecution and suffering for the cause of Christ and embrace His power in your life. Be encouraged by faithful servants holding forth truth in a dark world.
Acts Part 2 - Paul, Jesus' Witness to the Gentiles – Chapters 13-28*
Jesus promised His disciples that they would take the gospel to the remotest parts of the earth. Observe Paul's transformation from persecutor to preacher. Join him on his journeys across the Roman world to proclaim the saving message of Jesus to Jews and Gentiles. Learn how to witness and how to live an authentic Christian life in all circumstances in the power of the Holy Spirit. Learn to be like Paul, bold in proclaiming the name of Jesus and trusting our sovereign Lord who enables us to endure persecution and suffering at the hands of those who hate Jesus...and therefore, hate us.
Join women of all ages to study the early church and how we too can live in the power of the Holy Spirit.
