Get to know the Book of Acts

CONNECT Book Study begins July 8

The CONNECT Team invites everyone to participate in a congregation-wide study of The Book of ActsLike the popular concept of the great read, St. Stephen’s members will all be reading Acts at the same time! The congregation is invited to join with a couple of St. Stephen’s brothers and/or sisters and invite Jesus along weekly for 45 minutes of discussion and prayer.

Here’s how it works. Connect with one or two others— they might be someone you know well or someone you don’t know well, yet. Then starting today, get together with your partner(s) in person, on the phone or electronically and discuss a couple of chapters of Acts. Each week you’ll work your way through two chapters and discuss what is happening, what God is telling us, and how we can move forward in our Christian lives and as the body of Christ. There will be gatherings and check-ins several times during the great read, but for the most part this is a special opportunity for you to experience Acts with a study partner or two and probably create a lasting friendship in the process.

If you have any questions, please speak with any of the members of the

CONNECT Team:  Luke Martz, Julie Buss, Patti Etheridge, Adam Lohrmann, Marshall Heyworth, and Pastor Elisa.  Get to know the Book of Acts with a friend. It’s a great read!
