Watch video here.

Start Date: January 16

We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing.

It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

$25 includes study book and brunch at the end of the study (May).

0057726391 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin
Watch video here.

Start Date: February 27

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.


Tuesday Study

Start Date: Tuesday, February 2 9:30am. If you are bringing children please plan to arrive earlier to check them into their rooms so that you are able to make a 9:30 start. On the first day, after checking-in, please meet in the Youth Worship Room on the second level.

SOTM2Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin
More info here.

What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew’s gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus’ longest recorded message—a sermon given to His disciples early in His ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ-follower would look like. It was a message intended to turn upside down every expectation His closest followers might have.

Both practical and profound, the sermon asks of us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? What is the nature of true righteousness?

This study will challenge you to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification.

$25 includes study book and brunch at the end of the study (May).
