The Gospel of John reveals an unmatched portrait of Jesus and is arguably the most theologically and philosophically profound account of his life, death, and resurrection in the New Testament.

Be the Bridge

Tuesdays, Starting January 26th

Facilitators: Jill Lin

7:30 – 9:00 p.m. via ZOOM

Adults

(Book can be purchased on Amazon)

In an era where we seem to be increasingly divided along racial lines, many are hesitant to step into the gap, fearful of saying or doing the wrong thing. At times the silence, particularly within the church, seems deafening.

But change begins with an honest conversation among a group of Christians willing to give a voice to unspoken hurts, hidden fears, and mounting tensions.

Along with prayers, discussion questions, and other resources to enhance group engagement, Be the Bridge presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge builder—committed to pursuing justice and racial unity in light of the gospel.

The Deborah Anointing – Part 2

Tuesdays, Starting January 26th

Facilitator: JoAnn Adams and Linda Loomis

7:00 – 9 p.m. via ZOOM

Women

(Book and Study Guide can be purchased on Amazon)

The Old Testament describes Deborah as a mighty combination of judge, intercessor, prophetess, mother of Israel, and military strategist. Deborah broke outside of her culture—not out of rebellion, but in obedience to God to set her people free.

God is calling today’s women to a purpose greater than themselves. The Deborah Anointing shows you that although you may have been trapped in tradition and locked into captivity by cultural and gender prejudices, God desires for you to break through these barriers. Now is the time to embrace the fullness of your purpose!

Whatever your sphere of influence at work, at home, or at church—will you accept the challenge to be a modern-day Deborah, stand for God, and boldly lead others to Him?

Love Matters More

Tuesdays, Starting February 2nd

Facilitators: Josh Patterson

7 – 8:30 p.m. via ZOOM

Men & Women

(Book can be purchased on Amazon)

A biblically based Christian life is not grounded in having all the answers but in a living relationship. This ultimately shifts our focus from collecting the “right” answers to loving others deeply and authentically. Jared Byas calls us back to the heart of the Bible: that truth is only true when it’s lived out in love. In a refreshing voice that’s both witty and profoundly revelatory, Jared unpacks the concept of truth, its meaning, and why we so often fight over it. He makes a compelling case for how what we believe is less important than how we believe it and that, more than anything else, telling the truth in love is about following Jesus.

For anyone who has ever felt forced to choose between truth and love, acceptance and rightness, this book offers a path forward beyond truth wars and legalistic religion to a love that matters more.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Tuesdays, Starting January 26th

Facilitator: Chase Douglas

7:00 – 8:45 p.m. via ZOOM

Young Adults: Ages 21-35 years old

Four adventurous siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie—step through a wardrobe door and into the land of Narnia, a land frozen in eternal winter and enslaved by the power of the White Witch. But when almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change… and a great sacrifice.

Join the Young Adult Group as they open the door to a new world and magical land in C. S. Lewis’s classic fantasy that been captivating readers of all ages for over sixty years. With the help of other resources, study guides, and materials they are able to bring scripture and biblical connections to the magical land and unforgettable characters.

Elijah: Faith and Fire

Wednesdays starting January 27th

Facilitators: Debbie Burrows

7:00 – 8:30 a.m. via ZOOM

Women

(Book can be purchased on Amazon)

Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho. And Elijah—calling down fire on Mount Carmel.

Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory—months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable. This study takes you through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

Be Right: How to be Right with God, Yourself, and Others

Thursdays Starting January 28th

Facilitator: Chapell Jones and Carol Chapple

1-2:30 p.m. via ZOOM

Retired Persons

(Book can be purchased on Amazon)

Every Christian desires to “be right” about their faith. How we live out our faith holds eternal significance. But in order to be right, we must know what, why, and how come we believe in Christ.

It can be argued that no book of the Bible has had a greater effect on Christianity than the book of Romans. Dr. Wiersbe’s careful exposition of the text allows the truth to soak in to your heart and mind as you read and understand these essential truths of Scripture. When you sum it up, the book of Romans is saying to us, “Be right!” Be right with God, with yourself, and with others. The righteousness of God received by faith makes it possible for us to live right lives. Rome needed this message, and we need it today: Be right!

Knowledge of the Holy

The Knowledge of the Holy

“Teach us, O God, that nothing is necessary to Thee. Were anything necessary to Thee that thing would be the measure of Thine imperfection: and how could we worship one who is imperfect? “ The Knowledge of the Holy is a classic devotional that has moved the hearts of Christians for over a century! Each chapter focuses on one attribute of God–from God’s infinitude, immutability, grace, goodness… this book is perhaps one of the most theologically rich AND approachable devotionals in the world!
