Seated With Christ...continued
Led by Billie Malone and Andrea Giesbrect, Tuesdays at 9:30 AM on Zoom
Curriculum: Topical Study, Seated with Christ: Living Freely in a Culture of Comparison, by Heather Holleman
You don’t have to live enslaved to pride and despair, or stay trapped in the endless pursuit of perfection. Your journey to freedom starts with taking your seat. Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic, unending pursuit of perfection.
Scripture says that Godʼs beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph. 246), treasured by Him, and given a place at His table. What does this mean for us? It means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves to others. We leap free from cycles of shame. Securely-seated people can ask themselves hard questions about their lives; they can deal with sin, grieve their losses, and move forward in hope. From a position of security and self-forgetfulness, they can joyfully do the good works prepared for them uniquely. They can even celebrate the successes of others. It is a deeply personal, liberating look at a glorious truth: that we have a place at Godʼs eternal table.
Need Peace, Joy & Hope in a Troubled World? Ask Jesus!
Led by Connie Saylor and Gina Cushing in the Fireside Room on Tuesdays from 6:15-7:45pm and on Zoom
Turning Troubled Times into Times of Joy, Peace and Purpose in Jesus.
Curriculum: Topical Bible study, no curriculum
We live in crazy times, and life can sometimes be chaotic and overwhelming anyway. Our study this year will encourage you to get into the Word to find peace when life seems so loud and chaotic, to find joy when sadness threatens to take over, and to look for how GOD is doing great things and providing new opportunities to share His love in the midst of these anxieties and trials. And what a privilege it is to take part in GOD'S purpose and plan in our families and community! He reveals the "how to" aspect of facing these situations as we step into His presence, and like Mary, sit at Jesus' feet intently listening as He teaches His promises and truth in His Word. We'll be studying in both the Old Testament and New to see how GOD uses difficult times to bring about His great purpose and show His faithful and unending love. Also we'll be reading how Jesus gives us everything we need to be equip us for our part in His plan.
Genesis: God of Creation
Led by Megan Parker on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM on Zoom & In Person
Curriculum: Genesis: God of Creation
Using the inductive Bible study method, delve in to the first eleven chapters of Genesis and see how God reveals Himself through the creation story.
The Book of Matthew
Led by Val Otheim on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM on Zoom
Curriculum: The Book of Matthew
This study of the book of Matthew will trace Jesus’ life and work through Matthew’s lens of Jewish history, discipleship, and the kingdom of heaven. Matthew’s gospel is considered by some to be “the most important single document in the New Testament” since it includes the fullest account of the birth, life, teaching, death, and resurrection of Jesus, who is God’s fulfillment of Israel’s calling and kingdom-hope. Now more than ever we need to hear Matthew’s story of God’s revelation of Israel’s Messiah in the Old Testament fulfilled in Jesus, his teaching on the life of discipleship and the meaning of the kingdom of heaven, his insights into the end of the world, and the good news that God is with us as we live and proclaim His kingdom hope to all people.
Psalms: Songs Along the Way, by Kathleen Nielson
Led by Noreen Sell on Thursdays at 6:30 PM in person and on Zoom
Curriculum: Psalms: Songs Along the Way, by Kathleen Nielson
The word “psalms” comes from a Greek word meaning “songs to the accompaniment of stringed instruments”. The Hebrews called them tehillim, or “praise songs”. The Psalms of scripture were prayers written by Godly men…David, Asaph, sons of the priest Korah…as they were led and inspired by the Holy Spirit. They give us a view of the God we worship…His nature and character, His attributes of grace, mercy and justice…all by using poetic language to touch our minds, hearts and imagination. We invite you to join us as we learn some examples of how to pray, praise and worship by studying the Psalms.
