New Adult Bible Study on the Book of Acts. Wednesdays with Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Ryan. Classes at 10am and 6pm

Pr. Peter and Intern Pr. Ryan are co-teaching this new adult Bible class on the Book of Acts. Attend either the morning or evening session.

The course began with a special first session titled "Rethinking Church." Greg Rhodes, Intern Pr. Ryan, and Pr. Peter discussed the challenging future for the Church in North America, its implications for Messiah, the "take homes" from Messiah's recent discernment process, and what the Church Leadership Team (CLT) and staff are leaning into as we seek to be part of the continuing story of Acts. Seventy-five (75) people attended the first session!

Happening now are six-sessions based on readings from the Book of Acts. Students may read the assigned passage in preparation for each week, or follow the "read-through" schedule below to cover the entire narrative of Acts over the six sessions of the course. Either way will work!
