Paul's Journeys Small Group
The Books of Acts is a real-life look at the apostles’ work to spread the Good News they had witnessed. Paul’s mission to spread the Gospel was monumental, taking the Word to new lands that had never witnessed Christianity. In looking at Paul’s missionary journeys, we can begin to more deeply understand our own mission. In this video-based Bible study, participants will follow Paul to the ends of the earth in his proclamation of the Good News. We will meet Wednesday’s May 25-June 29 at 6:30pm at the church. Click here to sign up.
