Holy Cross Church Fall Bible Study
Begins Tuesday, September 10 

Again, we will have 2 sessions, one at 1:00 PM and one at 7:00 PM. This session is The Acts of the Apostles. Acts tells the story of the spread of the Gospel and the growth of the early church from its beginnings at Pentecost, following the ascension of Jesus. The Holy Spirit empowers the preaching of Peter, Paul, and the other disciples to take the faith from Jerusalem, to Judea, throughout Samaria and ultimately to the ends of the earth. It records the conversion of Paul and the momentous decision of the early church to welcome Gentiles as well as Jews into the church. Acts is the second volume of the literary work begun in the Gospel According to Luke. If you would like to attend, books are $17 for the set.  Please contact the Holy Cross Parish Office at 663-2244 to reserve a spot and order books.
