Acts: How the Church Was Planted

Sunday June 02, 2019 at 12:00 am

The book of acts tells this exciting story of how the Spirit used 120 unlikely disciples to start a church that, even in the face of suffering and death, multiplied to every nation on earth. Join us on Sundays at 10am this summer, June 2 - August 18, as we devote ourselves to the apostle’s teaching and fellowship, the prayers, and the breaking of bread.
