Title:  People Like Us - Rediscovering the Apostles

The Gospels include the story of people like us who encountered the living Christ and were changed by His presence.  Those closest to Christ were the Apostles.   Their lives are reflections of all mankind, in some ways unique and in other ways similar to the lives that you and I live. 

We will look at the life of various Apostles, beginning with the Apostle Peter.  Other than Jesus, Peter was the person talked about more than any other in the Gospels.   We will go beneath the myths that have developed over time regarding the Apostles.  We will seek to discover who they really were and how we can identify with them today.

Title:  Sharing the Gospel -- a Study of the Book of Acts

More than any other book in the New Testament, the book of Acts provides us with a clear picture of how the early church made disciples in obedience to the command of Christ and multiplied churches in order to advance the kingdom of Christ.  In this series we will discover together how, empowered by the Holy Spirit, they set aside traditions, comforts, preferences, and programs in order to fulfill Christ's mandate to proclaim the gospel "in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
