JESUS: the Way, the Truth and the Life
10 Sundays @ 10:30 AM beginning Sunday, April 11
Meeting ID: 963 0849 5397 / Passcode: Jesus
If you haven’t experienced this study, you will want to consider this opportunity. Alpha gives us a deep introduction to Jesus; this study helps us to get to know Him by studying His life in the very places He lived and taught.
Filmed beautifully on location in the Holy Land, this unique study takes a new and fresh look at Jesus—Who He is, what He is really like, what He taught, and what He did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on Him as you come to know and love Him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way.

UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE
8 Mondays @ 7:00PM beginning Monday, April 12
Meeting ID: 997 2046 7300 / Passcode: unlocking
Once you’ve experienced the “Jesus” study, you’ll have a deeper appreciation and will likely want to study more of the Bible. This “Unlocking” study will teach you how to read and truly understand the Bible by exploring the twelve time periods of the Bible and focusing on the 14 narrative books that tell the complete story of the Bible, from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church. The unique color-coded Bible Timeline® Chart that accompanies the study arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order. This study is great for beginners and experienced students of the Bible, alike.
Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom
12 weeks before Christmas / 9 weeks after … beginning September 22 & 23
Acts is one of three “foundational” studies that we offer on a three-year cycle. It instructs us on how to live our lives by telling the story of how a few Christians, empowered by the Holy Spirit, were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth. They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all of this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men.
Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom traces how the gospel witness spread outward in waves from Jerusalem, and reveals how the seeds of Church structure and authority took root. Presenter Jeff Cavins shows how the joys and struggles of the early Christians in living the life of Christ apply to us today.
Acts: The Spread of the Kingdom will help you to see your place in the Church as a disciple of Christ.
