The Birth of the Church: A Study of the Book of Acts

Join Frs. Chris and Drew in exploring the New Testament book of Acts of the Apostles. Throughout this Easter season, we will look at key passages that give insight into the context of the earliest Church’s formation and growth after the ascension of Jesus. This class will meet April 18 and 25, May 9 and 16 during the Sunday School hour.

*Please note: This class will meet in person to accommodate those attending Sunday services. If you are not able to make it in person, you may join us via Zoom by following the ‘Join Meeting’ link below.

Education for Ministry
Education for Ministry (EfM) is a unique, four-year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small-group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975, this international program has assisted more than 100,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service. EfM helps the faithful encounter the breadth and depth of the Christian tradition and bring it into conversation with their experiences of the world as they study, worship, and engage in theological reflection together. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the EfM Graduate Group will be meeting via zoom.
