We are in the process of preparing for classes that we will be offering this Fall. Scroll below for a description of our upcoming class – The Acts of the Apostles.
We also offer weekly Scripture Study on Thursday evenings. For additional information on that and other programs offered at Ascension please contact our Director of Adult Religious Education, Jocelyne Carrigan at 561-997-5486 or via Email.
COMING THIS OCTOBER
The Acts of the Apostles shows the Church, enlivened by the Holy Spirit, teaching, preaching, healing, and restoring outcasts in the same way that Jesus did on earth. Harmonizing history, theology, and eternal truth, St. Luke’s witness is a stirring invitation to follow the one he followed—the one who brought death to its knees. During this study, you will:
- See how the Gospel witness spread outward in waves, from Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria, and finally to the ends of the earth.
- Share with the early Christians the joys and struggles of living the life of Christ, and learn how these apply to us today.
- See how the Holy Spirit guided the apostles into Truth.
- Observe the way the Spirit-filled Church adapted to new cultures when proclaiming the Gospel.
- Watch the seeds of Church structure and authority take root, and see how conflicts were resolved even at that early stage.
- See your place in Christ’s Church, and how you should live day-to-day as a disciple of Christ.
Our first class will be October 4th from 10 am to 12 pm. If you are interested or would like additional information, email Jocelyn Carrigan or call 561-997-5486.
