Pastor Michael Cranford is teaching an adult Sunday school class from 12:15-1:30 PM in Building B1-4. Bring in food provided by our hospitality ministry in the courtyard!

Walking with the Holy Spirit through the Book of Acts

Pastor Michael will be teaching a series on the Holy Spirit in the book of Acts. We will be covering the entire book over the course of the class, with a focus on the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the men and women who followed him. Acts is a template for the kind of Spirit-filled life we desperately need in today’s materialistic world. The class will not only give you a deep understanding of Acts but will explain how we reach the life that God wants for us.

Michael Cranford is Pastor of Discipleship at Woodbridge Community Church. He is also Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at Concordia University in Irvine, California. He holds a Master of Divinity from Talbot School of Theology, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Religion and Social Ethics from the University of Southern California.
