Steve Ray is your guide on this 1,000+ verse journey into the hearts and minds of the early Christians. 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.

In 28 comprehensive lessons, you will learn:

  • How the Apostles’ message of repentance is just as vital for us today
  • Why the Church was able to survive brutal, constant persecutions
  • How we can be filled with the same Holy Spirit that inspired Peter, Paul, and all the early Christians

The Acts of the Apostles are the acts of those with hearts on fire. We are called to the same fearless love, no matter what challenges or persecutions come our way.

In this five-week study, featuring videos by Dr. Edward Sri, you will discover the beauty and riches of the Mass.  The Mass is nothing short of amazing. Through it, we encounter God in the most intimate way possible as we hear him speak to us in the Liturgy of the Word and as we receive him Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist.

UPDATED START DATE

Suggested Donation: $8
Contact: Cathy Casto, 26mileturtle@gmail.com
Register by September 30

Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the "source and summit" of the Christian life. "Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist" explores the truth and beauty of Christ's real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.  

This is a 4 week study beginning on October 19.  We will not meet on November 9th and the final session will be on November 16.  The deadline to register is September 30.
