Feeding on God’s Word

Saint PeterThis week’s personal Bible study is a great review of what we’ve covered so far.  Open and print Acts Week 4.  

Studying the Scriptures is a spiritual discipline.  It slows us down to process God’s Word more fully and see what we’d otherwise miss from a quick reading.

Each of our Bible study lessons takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Do as much or as little of the study that you wish. It might suit you best to break it up into 15-minute daily segments.

All previous weeks’ studies can be found on our website or app.

Unstoppable

peter-john-lame-manThis week’s personal Bible study shows that the church was unstoppable despite opposition.  It will cover chapters 3 and 4 and the beginning of 5. If you’ve downloaded the Clear Water Church app, you can open the Bible icon and go to Acts to listen to an audio recording of these chapters. Then go back to the written text to answer the Bible study questions. Open and print Acts Week 3.

Sunday’s sermon on April 26 will come from this section of Scripture and specifically address Peter healing a crippled man in chapter 3.

You can access all previous weeks’ studies from our website or app.  April’s memory verse is in both places as well.

What was the significance then and what’s the significance for you today? Open and print the study here:  Acts Week 2.

You can access all previous weeks’ studies from our website or app. April’s memory verse, Acts 1:8, is in both places as well.
