Faith Tid-Bit:

I have often hard the names of our saints for the week during Mass and was curious about their story. They were brothers well known for their skill in science and medicine. They were filled with the spirit of charity (love) and never took money for their services.

Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom

September 20, 2014 - News & Events


Step Three in The Great Adventure Bible Study Program, Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom, builds on The Bible Timeline and Matthew by showing how Christ’s Kingdom on earth is empowered to carry out his work in the world. The book of Acts shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth.

The Acts of the Apostles provides an historic framework for understanding the rest of the New Testament. Paul’s letters in particular come alive in a new way when they are read within the context of the Acts narrative.
