Option 1: Seamless  (every other week)

Seamless: Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story by Angie Smith (beginners to intermediate)

Do you hear people mention Bible characters names or refer to specific books of the Bible and find yourself asking, who are they or what is that about? The study, Seamless, covers the people, places and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. This study is Biblically rooted and gospel-centered weaving together and connecting both Old and New Testaments. You will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word. Seamless helps replace insecurity, that can hold you back, with clarity and will help you to move forward with confidence in your understanding of Scripture. Each week of study features key information that ties all of scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message and is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies.

Option 2: A Closer Look at Jesus Through Hebrews

The Bible is one big story, but sometimes it’s hard to see the connection between the Old and New Testaments. The letter to the Hebrews offers a rich and detailed bridge that unites them. With the Old Testament background in mind, Hebrews leads us to see that God’s glory and redemptive plan are ultimately revealed in Jesus Christ. Powerful examples, encouraging words, firm warnings, and theological richness focus our attention on Jesus as not only supreme, but also loving and compassionate. The study involves simple and engaging homework questions that should take 15 minutes a day; it is complemented by live teaching and group discussion.

Option Two:Treasuring and Pondering God’s Word.

Join us as we spend time treasuring and pondering God’s Word through the books of Galatians and James.  Each week you will Read, Practice and Apply what you learn as you study small portions of Scripture, preparing you for a lifetime of prioritizing time in God’s Word.  We use a bible study method called the “5 P’s Approach” giving you an opportunity to Paraphrase what you’ve read, Pull out spiritual Principles, and Pose Questions of yourself as you develop a yearning and thirst to know God more.  This study is for both beginner and advanced learners.

Option Three: All Things New by Kelly Minter  (Every other week)

Journey with us as we meet every other week starting January 9th to study 2 Corinthians.   In this 8-session course, we will deep-dive into Paul’s letter to the church of God in Corinth, a melting pot city full of electrifying cultural experiences and spiritual depravity.   Kelly Minter will lead us through the letter by exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant.   Each of us has a powerful message to proclaim and live by: because of Jesus the old has gone and the new has come!  He Makes All Things New!

Option Four: Starting Point (Every other week)

What is Christianity really? Can I really trust that the Bible is reliable? Is there such a thing as true faith in modern society? How can I learn anything from the Bible, it’s so confusing to me? Do you have questions? Do you want to know God but don’t know where to start?  Starting point is for those who are curious about God, have a new relationship with Jesus Christ, or are returning to church after being away for a while. It is a small group discussion around the story of God and how our story fits into it.  Study features a DVD and small group discussion.
