We will be digging into God’s Word through the DVD/book study. This study will consider what it really means to be content: “to place our trust in our good and sovereign God…As we look back to the cross of Christ and look forward to the hope of heaven, we will discover that ultimate contentment is found in Him.” This study will be co-lead by Vicki Wickenheiser, Nicolette Stephens, and Juli Hoch.

Studying the book Even Better Than Eden by Nancy Guthrie. This book traces nine themes throughout the Bible that reveal how God's plan for the new creation will be far more glorious than the original. Each week, we use the Bible study worksheets to look at passages from Genesis to Revelation and tie in additional material from the book during discussion. There is no homework, but you will need to purchase the study license ($3.00) from Nancy Guthrie's website in order to have access to the Bible study guide we use each week. The book is recommended but not required. Contact Jen Brooks (540-908-7851, firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
6:30-8:00 p.m. | Begins Thursday, February 13, at the church (W-10)
Studying the book, The Promised One: Seeing Jesus in Genesis by Nancy Guthrie will help us discover how the stories, symbols, people, and promises of this Old Testament book explain who Christ is and why He came. We will look at how Genesis fits into the bigger story of redemptive history and points us to Christ’s coming kingdom when all will be made right. “This class will include a discussion of your personal home Bible study and will be held at the church. We studied the first half of the book in the fall and will continue with lesson #6- Abraham; it's not necessary to have attended in the fall. Cost of the book is $12 and class size is limited to 15. Contact Chandra Palmer (email@example.com) or Barbara Broome (firstname.lastname@example.org).
7:00-8:00 a.m. | TBA
This is a study of the book of John where we will be seeking to gain a greater knowledge and understanding of the person and deity of Christ, with the aim of increasing our belief and love for him. Through personal study and discussion we hope to spur one another on to dive deep into the scriptures and grasp the very purpose that John himself lays out for his testimony, "...these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." John 20:31
We hope to form an inter-generational Bible study that addresses the rich themes of John by utilizing the 3 Question Method of study which is focused on dissecting the passage, interpretation, and potential application. Contact Amanda Severns (941-744-7614) or Kathy Bowen (540-908-1849).
