Luke: The First Part

September 8 – November 24

Sundays | 11:11AM | Cafe

Lots of people have tried to compile all the things that happened with Jesus. But that’s a big list of things, especially when you start interviewing the eyewitnesses who were there at the beginning. You’ll want someone to put together an orderly account, and that’s why Luke wrote his Gospel. This class will be discussion based and led by Macon Stokes, all adults are welcome!
