In this series, we journey through the book of Acts verse by verse.
Acts is an amazing book that is about 2000 years old, but it is still incredibly relevant for our times. It's about what happened (and still happens) in response to Jesus dying on the cross and rising from the grave. It's about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It's about God's people - the Church - and what he desires for them. It's about the mission God is accomplishing on the earth, even to this day. Acts is particularly timely as we consider how God has been moving in our church over the past couple of years.
If you've ever wondered when and how this thing called the Church got started, if you've wondered what God is doing in the world, or if you've wondered what you're supposed to be doing as a Christian...
Acts is a great book for you!
