Church History 101 Course, Mysterious Figures in Early Christianity Series, and More

Last Sunday we began a topic that many Copts have oftentimes found themselves completely lost, right in the middle of. As we started a new series entitled MYSTERIOUS FIGURES IN EARLY CHRISTIANITY, we dove right into the first 2 Centuries of major Christian figures. Christ made disciples and those disciples made disciples. Who were the disciples of the disciples of Jesus? Join us in part 1, entitled MAKING DISCIPLES, as we explore the Apostolic Fathers.
