Join us online (, on the app, and with a book (available at!

In this 6-week study beginning June 6th, we’ll read through the entire book of Acts, discovering God’s big plan for His church. The birth of the early church is our story. This is where we came from, and it’s where we are going. It’s the story of how we are called to reach out, and how we are called to come together.

And, we’re crazy-excited about giving you a peek inside the Acts study book!

The green book is for the ‘She’s — and there’s also a book available for the men in your life to join in as well with the yellow book. And She Reads Truth is offering us 15% off all Acts books! Use this code at checkout: SheReadsActs.
