The class is undertaking a six-week study beginning Jan. 6 titled “Acts – Catching Up with the Spirit” by Matthew Skinner. There is no better explanation for how to live out the Great Commission than in the book of Acts. It is a crucial book that chronicles the story of God’s grace flooding out to the world through the lives of the apostles in the decades immediately following Christ’s ascension into heaven.
