Dr. Mack leads the 2023–2024 Presbyterian Women Bible study, “Sacred Encounters The Power and Presence of Jesus Christ in Luke-Acts”
By Olive Mahabir.
You are invited to meet in person the second Tuesday of each month in the Library beginning September 12, 2023 at 10:00 am. All interested adults are welcome!
Bible study books are available for purchase during office hours or by arrangement with the office on Sunday morning for $10.00.
The 2023–2024 PW/Horizons Bible study by author Olive Mahabir invites readers to consider Jesus, “the good shepherd” (Luke 10:15), who shared the Good News through sacred encounters with everyday people. The Gospel According to Luke and the book of the Acts of the Apostles, or Luke-Acts “one story in two parts,” demonstrate the unfolding of God’s redemptive purposes in human history and present a distinctive perspective on the person and work of Jesus Christ. Written by Luke, a physician and traveling companion of Paul, the message to the early Christian community (and to us) is radical, inclusive, and hope-filled.
Bible study, supplemental materials, and other helps!
