Real Life – High School Fellowship and Bible Study

The Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts
Sunday Nights beginning January 26
6:30-8:30 pm in the Youth House

Life in High School can be really busy and stressful at times, so why not take a Sunday evening to slow down, hang out with good friends, and talk about the things in life that really matter?! This spring we will continue our study of Luke and the Book of Acts as we will be challenged by the teaching and ministry of Jesus and the life of the early Church, all the while discussing the implications for how we live as Christians in the world. In addition to studying God’s Word together, we will also share great food (thanks to the provision of some awesome parents) and even better fellowship!
