Contact: Kathy McGill,
Register by August 28 to be added to the group book order.

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.
