Session One (September 20th – December 6th)

A Study of Genesis 1-11 CoverGod of Creation A Study of Genesis 1-11

Author: Jen Wilkin
In its first eleven chapters Genesis addresses important questions: Where did everything come from? Why are we here? Why is the world so broken? How can that brokenness be made right? God’s Word declares that He is our source for understanding and the One to provide answers to life’s questions.  In this inductive study we will cultivate a worshipful understanding of our Creator, explore Genesis as the place the redemptive story begin, and trace the themes of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration.

Session Two (January 10th – February 28th)

No Other God's CoverNo Other God’s The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ

Author: Kelly Minter
Most often we think of idols as something archaic from days long past.  In actuality, God’s people still struggle with idolatry every day.  Our idols may wear different faces today but they are real nonetheless – work, money, power, fame. Unless we are careful and aware we can find ourselves serving these gods above the one true God and miss the fullness of knowing and following Him.  This study will help us identify the gods we may be unknowingly serving and the lies they tell us.  Freedom is found only in Christ – discover what Jesus can do that no other gods can.

Session Three (March 14th – May 23rd)

Live Deeply CoverLive Deeply A Study in the Parables of Jesus

Author: Lenya Heitzig & Penny Rose
Ever wondered what Jesus was talking about while reading some of His parables? You’re not alone, even His disciples grappled with clearly understanding what He was saying.  In this study we’ll dig deeper into the meaning of each and develop a closer walk with Christ as we gain a clearer understanding of these and other truths in the Bible.

Session Four (June 6th – August 15th)

An Unexplainable Life CoverAn Unexplainable Life Recovering the Wonder and Devotion of the Early Church

Author:  Erica Wiggenhorn
The thought is intriguing isn’t it, living an unexplainable life. The book of Acts is full of events and occurrences that truly are unexplainable apart from the person and work of God.  As we open the pages of these first twelve chapters we will see what life can be when lived solely for the Lord, sold out for Him. Christ’s mission became a reality in the lives of His followers and you are invited to become part of it.  Join us for this verse by verse study of Acts 1-12.
