Following Jesus Christ as Lord means He sends us to share His good news through words and deeds. But how does our response to His mission make a tangible difference in us? In the lives of others? In the world today?

Join us as we explore Christ’s call to be His witnesses in our new all-church Bible study, Sent by Love: A Study of Acts (Part 1). The study kicks off on Sunday, August 16, when we’ll study the biblical story of the Christian movement’s explosive, life-changing launch—from August 16 to the start of Lent 2021.

This is the third year of a four year church-wide Bible study program curated by Equipping Ministries. First we studied Romans, followed by the Gospel of Luke. Now we turn to ACTS, a book so rich, so full of meaty material that it's been expanded to two program years! Fall 2020 will be part 1, and will cover the first 14 chapters of ACTS. Part 2 of the study will take place in Fall 2021.

There are many opportunities to participate. As in previous years, most of our Sunday School classes will use this curriculum during their regular Sunday gatherings at 9:45 and 11:15 AM. Our pastors’ class, “Walking Through Acts,” at both 9:45 and 11:15 AM, beginning August 16, offers an opportunity to enjoy stand-alone lessons taught by pastors and other staff members. (Geared especially for MDPC members and friends not attending an existing class, for MDPC guests, and for those investigating Christianity!) If Sundays are difficult, then our Wednesday evening small group study beginning August 19, 6:00-7:00 PM, is a great option.

B-Team Bible Study

These fun and engaging podcasts are geared toward those who don't feel like A-team  Bible study stars. Episodes include  commentaries on the particular week's passage, while others are 3-5 explanatory talks about a certain phrase or jargon that churchworld knows but the rest of the world doesn't. 

The podcasts feature Christyn Knoop, MDPC Young Adult Director.

Just 5 Minutes in Acts 

God speaks and transforms us when we study and reflect on the Bible. But maybe you're not geared for a 45-minute Bible study? Maybe you only have 5 minutes to spare? Then "Just 5 Minutes in Acts" is for you. Every Monday, we'll look at a Scripture text from the New Testament book of the Acts of the Apostles for 5 minutes. We'll talk about 1 thought we get from it, and then 1 implication for our lives if that thought is on target. This study is part of the "Sent by Love" study through Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, Houston, TX. The teacher is Dr. Clay Brown, Associate Pastor for Equipping Ministries at MDPC.
