BIBLE STUDY: THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
Acts of the Apostles tells of the founding of the Christian Church and the spread of it message to the Roman Empire. Acts reveals God’s passionate pursuit of his people, beginning with his followers in Jerusalem, expanding to Samaria, then to the rest of the world. By the end of the book we see Paul living in Rome “proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance. The missionaries in Acts proclaim the grace of God, and it is through this grace that people are able to respond with faith.
We have chosen Acts for the next Church Book Reading. Starting in May, please consider adding the reading of Acts to your weekly schedule.We will break the readings into six weeks. We will also be having a discussion group beginning May 5 and lasting through June 9th.The group will meet between services on Sunday. Please plan on attending to learn and share your thoughts and ideas.

Sacred Ground race dialogue series offers
Individuals or groups interested in learning more about Sacred Ground: a film-based dialogue series on race and faith, are invited to an introductory webinar hosted by Katrina Browne, Sacred Ground curriculum developer, and producer/director of the acclaimed documentary Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North.
Built around a curriculum of powerful documentary films, videos, and readings, Sacred Ground is a 10-part series that considers some of the major chapters of the United States of America’s history of race and racism. It focuses on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian American histories as they intersect with European American histories. It also invites participants to weave in the threads of personal and family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.
In this webinar, Katrina Browne shares the “why and how” of the Sacred Ground series. She also walks participants through the online Sacred Ground curriculum and resources, including the password-protected pages, to provide participants with an overview of all the elements of this resource. There will also be time for questions.
