The Wednesday Study group is an adult class that meets to grapple with Scripture or books on faith in a seminar-type study with discussion and sharing. The class meets from 10 – 11:30 am in the chapel.
On May 1, Wednesday Study will begin reading A Journey Through Acts, the 50 day Bible challenge.
The Book of Acts shares the story of the birth of the Christian church, connecting the earliest followers of Jesus to Christians 2,000 years later. On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit breathes new life into followers of “The Way,” the community of Jesus’ disciples, and empowers them to share the Good News of God in Christ. Join the journey through Acts and follow in the footsteps of the apostles Peter and Paul and many others such as Barnabas and Lydia, all bearing witness to Jesus’ saving grace. Featuring fifty days of scripture and reflections by spiritual leaders from around the world, A Journey Through Acts is part of a series of 50 Day Bible studies and is an extension of The Bible Challenge, a global initiative to encourage daily engagement with the Word of God. – Forward Movement
Got questions? the Rev. Scot McComas has answers. Reach him at email@example.com.
Many in the group also stay for the 12 pm worship service in the chapel, to share prayers and the sacraments of healing and Holy Communion.
