Bible Studies

"Living By The Book" is a new small group that begins Wednesday, April 3 at 10:00 AM. It will be a 7 Week Study.

  • Far from being mundane, exploring God's Word can be one of the greatest adventures of your life!
  • In the Bible you can interact with a living God who wants a personal relationship with you.
  • In this unique small group study you will learn how to engage His words like never before.

Two new Adam Hamilton Studies are coming! "The Way - Walking In The Footsteps Of Jesus", and "Why? - Making Sense Of God's Will".

Starting March 20 join us on Wednesdays @ 6:30PM in the library as Pastor Dennis Lawrence will begin this new study. Travel with Adam Hamilton as he retraces the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Once again, Hamilton approaches his subject matter with thoughtful-ness and wisdom, just as he did with Jesus’ crucifixion in 24 Hours That Changed the World and with Jesus’ birth in The Journey. Using historical information, archaeological data, and stories of the faith, Hamilton follows in the footsteps of Jesus from his baptism to the temptations to the heart of his ministry, including the people he loved, the parables he taught, the enemies he made, and the healing he brought. This 40-day focus will help you and your group grow deeper in their faith, learn more about the life of Christ, spend time daily reading and reflecting upon the Scriptures, and invite families, through the children’s and youth studies, to grow together in their faith.

When the ground shakes, and a poor nation’s economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community’s hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations; where is God? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to infest his creation? When we lift our prayers to God, and no answer seems to come; when we earnestly seek to know the will of God for our lives, yet can't seem to discern it; when God seems far away; where is God? If God counts the hairs on our head, and knows every sparrow that falls, why is finding and understanding God's will so difficult at times? In Why? Making Sense of God's Will best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. Rejecting simplistic answers and unexamined assumptions, Hamilton addresses how we can comprehend God’s plan for the world and ourselves. We will be doing this study at First Church in the late spring!
