    Adult Formation | Seeing in a New Light

    Throughout the great fifty days of Easter, the church reads from the Acts of the Apostles in place of a reading from the Hebrew Bible. These weekly readings from Acts describe the life of the first Christians and their proclamation of Christ's resurrection. Our Easter Adult Forums will follow a similar pattern, with members of the Grace community sharing how their faith informs their life, either professionally or personally. Acting Out of Our Faith on Sunday, May 21 will feature Steve Carrelli.
