If you knew your time on earth was coming to an end, what would you say or do? If you could write one last letter to those you love, what words of wisdom would it contain? Here we look at Peter’s answer to this question. When the Lord had made it clear to Peter that his time on earth would be ending soon, he authored the three short chapters of 2 Peter, purposing to remind believers how we should live so as to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Join Holly, Marilyn, and Gianna as we explore the seven traits Peter instructs us to strive for as well as the three warnings he gives. They are as applicable today as they were for the early believers Peter cared deeply for and knew he would soon leave behind.
The book of 1 Peter is a continuation of the message of Mark’s gospel, speaking to early Christians about the suffering they’re going to incur, and how to behave in the context of that suffering. What can we learn from 1 Peter about faith in the context of suffering and suffering in the context of faith? Join Holly, Amy, Romy, Gianna, and Caitlin as we explore God’s Word.
During Jesus’ time on earth he taught many lessons that are as relevant today as they were at that time. Let’s discover them together as presented in the second gospel, where Mark records Peter’s account of his time with Jesus. Here, Mark presents Jesus’ miracle-working power set beside His suffering and death. Join Holly, Caitlin, and Gianna as we learn from this exciting record of the time Jesus spent with his followers during His ministry.
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.
