Adult Bible Studies
(Select your Bible Study above)
Bible Studies seek to build authentic community by bringing us together to encounter Jesus in a personal way through Scripture. Through prayerful reading of the Word and group reflection, we walk together as we learn to love Jesus more fully and live the faith more deeply. The hope is for individuals to first discover the joy of friendship with Jesus and ultimately live into the fullness of discipleship. Groups usually meet for an hour each week and focus on a set of Scriptures while also using an additional book to supplement the study. These tools are designed to point people to the Word of God as a basis for conversation about faith, God’s love and mercy, and the joys and struggles of following Jesus.

Study: 1 & 2 Peter: Courage in Times of Trouble by John MacArthur
Start Date: August 20 (ends November 12)
Length: 13 weeks
Believers in the early church scattered across the Roman Empire were facing the threat of increased persecution. Peter, the most outspoken of the disciples and leader among the apostles, wrote two practical and encouraging letters to strengthen the hearts of these followers of Christ. Through words of hope and wisdom, he taught them how to live victoriously in the midst of life-threatening trials. In the first letter, Peter reminds believers of the many blessings available to them because of their persecution. In the second letter, he warns them to discern and defeat the false teachers who were invading their churches and teaching them dangerous and deceptive doctrines. Peter’s letters of encouragement and warning are just as important for believers today to hear and understand as they were during the first century.

The focus of this study is to understand the heart of the prophet and the need for believers today to faithfully proclaim the truth of the gospel. Much like Jeremiah, we live in a world filled with rebellion against God. We too are called to proclaim God’s judgment against sin and offer the hope found in Christ. In this study, we will examine the life and message of Jeremiah to gain insight into how believers today can be faithful to the call of God in our lives.
Cost for breakfast: $5. Books will be available for purchase in the church office for $8.
