Precepts | LuAnn Turbiak | Avon Campus

Luke’s first account was his Gospel, where he recorded what Jesus did and taught. His second account is called Acts, or the Acts of the Apostles, in which Luke recorded what happened after Jesus’ ascension to the Father. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the apostles to testify to the power of God in salvation and in living every day for the gospel. Learn how God spread the gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and from their examples, how you too can witness to others. The study is Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. in Room 206. Class begins September 12.        REGISTRATION COMING SOON
