Job: A Story of Unlikely Joy by Lisa Harper

Overview: Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus.

Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this 7-session study by Lisa Harper, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God;s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.

The Word of the Lord
by Nancy Guthrie

Overview: Prophets in the Old Testament were men who spoke for God. Over 100 times in the historical and prophetical books of the Old Testament we read that, “the word of the Lord came” to a prophet. This ten session study dives into the challenging prophetical books of Isaiah through Malachi with the aim of understanding not only what God had to say to his people through these prophets in their own day, but also what he has to say to his people today. Readers discover that we struggle with the same sins, we’re subject to the same judgment, and we await the same Savior.

Union with Christ

Overview: To experience why the gospel is good news and answer life’s most foundational questions about identity, destiny, and purpose, we must understand what it means to be united to Christ. Join us as we dive in to the Word and see this central theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

Led by: Sue Lewis
Start Date: September 5
Meetings: Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.

Book of James

Overview: Journey with us as we walk through the book of James. As Warren Wiersbe states, “Perhaps of all the books in the New Testament, James most squarely focuses on results. His pull-no-punches approach to spiritual maturity and the preference for actions over words makes his text the perfect backdrop for how to grow in faith.”

TBF: Acts by John MacArthur

Overview: Luke’s book of Acts picks up where his Gospel left off, providing details of the birth and early years of the church that Jesus promised to build. Together the two books, Luke and Acts, form a comprehensive and seamless account of how the followers of Jesus “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6) by taking the good news of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). “More than a history book, however, the book of Acts serves as a valuable resource for today’s believers who find themselves living in an increasingly secular and pluralistic culture.”

Led by: Donna Evans
Start Date: September 6
Meetings: Thursdays at 9:30 a.m.
Room: G-101

Precept – Romans, Part 1

Overview: We all have sinned. There is none righteous. No not one. We are declared righteous by God only by faith in the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. As we study the first five chapters of Romans we will focus on the foundational doctrines of our faith. We will explore the topics of original sin, propitiation, justification, and redemption.
