God at Work: Live Each Day With Purpose by Ken Costa
Facilitated by Pastor Kregg Burrisand Doug Clubine
Starting at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom
> Join The Class In Zoom

Every day God calls us to the work we are doing. God is interested not only in what we do but how we do it. However, finding purpose at work is one of the most significant challenges of our world today, and many of us struggle to live out our faith in the workplace. Does our work matter to God? Is ambition good? How do I cope with failure? How do I make difficult decisions? What is the best way to manage stress? In this book, Ken Costa addresses these fundamental questions about our daily work. As the author addresses these questions, he will encourage us to turn our work stations into worship stations.

Women’s Bible Study Group

Into the Word by Anne Graham Lotz
Facilitated by Martha Lant and Rev. Sandra Alexander
Starting at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom
This book is described as a “roll-up-your-sleeves look at Scripture.” As noted by the author, “These fifty-two weekly studies emphasize personal application and will draw you directly into God’s Word…to love Him more. Each lesson contains a short reflection that considers our present-day way of life, but the richness in the lessons stem from the connections to Scriptures in the Old and New Testaments.
As explained by the publisher, the author does not attempt to explain her interpretation of the Scriptures, but through questioning leads the reader to personally dig into Scripture.So please join the Women’s Bible Study to discover God’s message for yourself!

Men’s Bible Study Group

The Passion Translation: The Passion Life Bible Study Series: The Book of Hebrews: Living Faith
General Editor: Dr. Brian Simmons
Facilitated by Eddie Wills and Monroe Goins
Starting at 7:00 PM via Zoom

Come, join the Men’s Bible Study and deepen your biblical understanding of the book of Hebrews. As stated by the author, “The book of Hebrews presents Jesus as gloriously divine, wonderfully human, and the fulfillment of the Old Testament. It is also one of God’s greatest gifts to His church as it provides an expository look at the person, life, covenant, sacrifice, and ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is indeed greater than all others.”
This magnificent book of the Bible leaves the reader with an incredibly rich understanding that “Jesus is better than everything that had come before and that would come after him.” Hebrews is relevant to every believer today. For it clearly states that Jesus is the same yesterday, and today and forever. Hebrews also contains the verse that sustains us through challenges as it reminds us that faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. So, come let’s spur one another on as we meet together to learn more about Jesus, our high Priest, who offered for all time one sacrifice for sins.

Interpretation Psalms

Bible Study Group

Psalms: Poetry, Praise, and Passionate Prayer Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching
by James L. Mays
Facilitated by Rev. David Chapman
Starting at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom
The Book of Psalms has been a favorite of Jewish and Christian believers for centuries. For many of the faithful, this is the “go-to” book for divine guidance and solace. But it is far more than a book of simple comfort and sentimentality. The psalmists expressed deep, often passionate emotions ranging between exaltation and rage, triumph and despair, all in the context of their relationship with the living God.
Using a layperson-level commentary written by a widely respected scholar, this course will survey principles for interpreting the psalter, and examine more deeply several individual and representative psalms. Join us in studying this
timeless book of songs and poetry, and learn to embrace more of the passion that is central to our faith!
