WOW (Women of the Word)

Believing Jesus: A Journey Through the Book of Acts
What does it mean to believe Jesus? Not just believe in Jesus, but actually believe what He said—and shape our lives around that truth? How would that affect the choices we make? The way we see the world? The way we conduct ourselves with other Christians?

In this 8-session video Bible study, Lisa Harper answers these questions by looking at the lives of the believers in Acts and how Jesus’ command to spread the gospel forever shaped their lives. Today, we are faced with the same decisions the early church faced. Will we, like them, truly believe the words of Jesus and allow them to transform every part of our lives?

The Sunday evening study began Sunday, August 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in room 305 and will be led by Melissa Herndon. Monday WOW began on Monday, August 14, 9:15-11:15 a.m. in the Youth Barn and will be led by Kim Stanley-Heim.
