Have you ever wondered how the Gospels (the first four books of the New Testament) fit together? While Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all tell us about Jesus’ life and ministry while on earth, each book is told from the authors’ individual perspective. Matthew’s gospel uniquely portrays Jesus as the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecy. Join Holly, Jan, and Maria as we discover how this perspective illustrates the perfection of God’s plan and reminds us of His sovereignty in the past, present, and future.
The last time Jesus’ disciples saw Him, He told them “…you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 ESV) They probably couldn’t begin to imagine how that would play out in their lives and the lives of those around them! Fortunately for us, much of what happened next was recorded in the book of Acts. Join Holly, Jan, and Carolina as we take in this exciting journey, specifically focusing on passages that show the unstoppable progress of the gospel, intelligent defense of the faith, and the potential of the church when empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Join us as we learn about finding our identity in Christ by studying Galatians chapter 3. In this series, Holly, Shay, Emily, and Cindy discuss the challenges we face in our quest to live out our conviction that the goals God has for us cannot be accomplished through human effort.
We find the book of Psalms near the center of our Bible. Written by David and numerous other authors, these songs, prayers and poems celebrate God with praise and worship, cry out to God from the depths of despair, and everything in between. The honesty of the Psalms can guide us into a deep and genuine relationship with God. Join Holly, Marilyn, Viv, and Jan as we focus on how the Psalms comfort us, caution us, and instill confidence in the one true God.
Why is the Old Testament important for us today? Whether taken as a whole or chapter by chapter, the Old Testament consistently points us to Jesus, points us to our need for a Savior, and teaches us about God as our Father. What better way to learn more about God than through His very own word? Join us as Holly, Jan, Shay, and Romy dig a little deeper to explore five themes from the Old Testament over five weeks: covenant, kingship, grace, sacrifice, and prophecy.
“They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.” Romans 1:25 This might seem crazy to us. Why would anyone exchange the truth for a lie, especially about God? The word “exchange” makes the context seem quite voluntary, an idea which is supported in the surrounding verses. On the surface, it’s easy for us to say we could never be so foolish. But could we?
In this study we try to understand how this can and does happen and learn how to avoid it. Join Holly, Amy, and Karen as we discuss what the truth about God really is so we can recognize when we are tempted to make the one true God into a god that fits our conveniences or lifestyle.
