Amos

Meets: Monday mornings at 10:00 a.m.
Location: A-202
Leader: Michele Cantley
Starts: January 10

A king ruled in Israel for 41 years; he was the longest reigning king of the Northern Kingdom. But the Bible gives us only seven sentences to describe his reign. The Prophet Amos gives us much insight into this silent period in Israel’s history. Why did God choose to save Israel during the reign of a king who “did evil in the sight of the Lord?”

The Ten Commandments, Part 2

Meets: Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Location: Fellowship Hall A
Leader: Cindy Reeder
Starts: January 11

This Spring we are continuing our study of the Ten Commandments, focusing on commandments 7–10. We will be using the Larger & Shorter Catechism questions as our guide. The Law is God’s gracious gift to mankind. What does that mean to us, what is the purpose of the Law and “How can a man be right before God?” from these commandments.

 

Optional book, The Confessions of Our Faith, Fortress Edition.

 

 

 


The Word of the Lord by Nancy Guthrie

Meets: Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Location: G-101
Leader: Mary Anne Turnbull
Starts: January 11

Take a 10-week exegetical excursion into the Old Testament and see Jesus in the prophets! Exploring the lives of Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Isaiah, and others, Nancy Guthrie  reveals how God’s earthly messengers—whether chastising or comforting—always point forward to Israel’s final redemption and ultimate hope. Includes weekly assignments and a discussion guide.

Required Book: The Word of the Lord by Nancy Guthrie.


 

I & II Peter

Meets: Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m.
Location: G-101
Leader: Elizabeth Bondurant and Amanda Peterson
Starts: January 12

Come join us as we study the richness of the “living hope” unfolded throughout the writings of Peter. As “elect exiles” in the present world, surrounded by pain and suffering, believers can lay hold of the hope found in Christ through the fulfilled and saving promises here and now as well as the assured hope of what is to come. Even  in the face of opposition, Christ empowers believers to live holy and righteous lives through the transforming grace of God. What does it look like to share in Christ’s sufferings and glory?


Walking Faithfully with God

Meets: Wednesday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Location: Zoom only
Leader: Lee Ann Holmes
Starts: January 12

This study of 1 and 2 Kings examines God’s great faithfulness to His people. We will discover what it means to cling to, follow, and keep the commandments of God. We will also see that God is righteous and just, yet loving and compassionate, forever faithful to His Word then and now. This inductive study requires approximately 20–30 minutes of homework daily. You will need your Bible, some colored pens or pencils, and a notebook. Click here to purchase the book or check with the Briarwood Christian Bookstore.


Covenants Made Simple

Meets: Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m.
Location: TBD
Leader: Kristie Harrick and Stephen King
Starts: January 12–February 23

We talk covenants all the time. What are they? Are they really important? Why does it matter? Come join us for an everyday language explanation of the covenants. Optional Book: Covenants Made Simple by Jonty Rhodes.

 



Going Deeper in Your Personal Study

Meets: Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m.
Location: TBD
Leader: Teresa Caldwell
Starts: January 12

An accountability study in Genesis to help us develop a ‘meaty” quiet time. We will be studying James Montgomery Boice’s Genesis, Volume 1 beginning literally ‘in the beginning.” Our focus will be two-fold: first to grow in our understanding of Genesis, and second to learn and put into practice how to have a deep personal time with the Lord in His Word. This class will be a blessing for all. Required Book: Genesis: Volume 1 by James Montgomery Boice.


Lessons from the Upper Room

Meets: Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Location: G-101
Leader: Donna Evans
Starts: January 13

What would you give to spend an evening with Jesus, hearing Him teach and listening to Him pray? This is what we encounter in the Farewell Discourse of John 13–17. As the shadow of the cross loomed, Christ shared His final hours with the disciples to prepare them for His death, quieted their troubled hearts, and interceded on their behalf before the Father. Cost is $10 to cover the cost of study materials.


Philippians

Meets: Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m.
Location Chapel
Leaders: Yvonne Welch
Starts: January 13

Paul’s main reason for writing the book of Philippians was to encourage people to rejoice in the Lord at all times. He exhorted them to rejoice when the people, the circumstances, and the events in your life were not going along according to your plan. The theme of the Philippians would be “Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice.” We will have an 8-week study beginning on Thursday, January 13, meeting in the Chapel at 9:30 a.m. We look forward to studying how Paul faced adversity, imprisonment and loneliness with a heart focused on our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
