Overview

We are currently in a series that will cover the last three chapters of the book of Luke. We will cover two simultaneous points of emphasis during this study: What Jesus said and did during his final hours, and how these things affected the community that he sought to leave behind.

This last Sunday, we studied the importance of prayer in community.
