Study Book: Remember Your Joy - Stories of Salvation in the Old Testament, by Courtney Doctor & Melissa Kruger
This seven-week Bible study, with an emphasis on biblical theology, traces the promised seed of the woman from Genesis 3:15 through seven Old Testament stories. Each chapter gives us a foreshadowing of the greater salvation Jesus wins. In each encounter, we'll see how God faithfully fulfilled his promise as he prepared us for the ultimate offspring who brought our eternal salvation.
Each story will be accompanied by a symbol that represents an aspect of our salvation. These symbols are intended to be visual reminders of spiritual truths. David once wrote: "Restore to me the joy of your salvation" (Ps. 51:12). Our hope is that you will remember the joy of your salvation—and praise the One who accomplished it—as you consider the battle he won on your behalf.

Explore the Armor of God with us! Last year, focused on being strong in the LORD and in His mighty power. During the summer, we explored the shield of faith. This fall, we're continuing this journey and diving into the other armor pieces from Ephesians 6:10-18.Our approach involves reading relevant Bible passages and discussing them as a group. Both Old and New Testament verses are explored. The aim? To highlight how the Bible is a remarkable resource for our daily lives; its wisdom is applicable in all situations. With God's armor, we're equipped to confront anything.Joining the study for the first time? No worries! Bring your own Bible (or use one of ours) – no advance preparation required. This is a homework-free zone – just a time of growth and learning together.

We will be studying the book of Revelation this year. This is something I said I'd never do but God had other ideas!! Come join us as we dive (perhaps a little deeper) into the historical side of the text. One of the resources that I love is N.T. Wright's book (commentary) called Revelation for Everyone. No need to order the book, just come armed with The Word and a notebook for taking notes. I will also be using The NIV's Application Commentary of Revelation, written by Craig S. Keener. My goal is to break this book down so that we aren't so intimidated by it, and reveal the true message behind this mysterious text.
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know each of you!

Prayer is a gift…an invitation to talk with God. But prayer can also be a challenge. Do you have trouble thinking of works to say, fear some emotions are too intense to express to God, or reach the end of a day only to realize you haven’t prayed at all? You’re not alone. Thankfully, in God’s Word we encounter many voices who teach us how to pray. Join Carol Caldwell as she leads this study, of prayers in the Bible that can inspire our own prayers. When we pray, we will find that our faith is strengthened and our hearts are united to Jesus.

If hearing God’s voice has seemed challenging, join us as we explore how to have a more intimate relationship with Him, one that can make hearing Him…His will, His heart, and His voice…your ongoing experience. Discover how to listen with greater confidence, clarity, and discernment. In our study, Priscila Shirer leads us in these things:
- How to more deeply understand the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives
- How to differentiate His voice from imposters’ voices (or our own)
- How to grow consistently in obedience, surrender, stillness and humility.
We look forward to learning how to listen as we study together.
