Come, Let Us Worship: An In-depth Study on Psalms

    Tuesdays / 9:30 AM-12:00 PM / Chapel /  September 1 – March 30
    Tuesdays / 9:30 AM-12:00 PM / Chapel /  September 1 – March 30
    Online option available both days.

The Book of Psalms contains many of our most well-known and well-loved Scriptures. We turn to them so often for comfort and to express the emotions of our souls. The Psalms also challenge us to live godly lives, to worship and adore our great and glorious God, to make the right choices in the midst of overwhelming trials, and to always trust the Lord. The Psalms lead us to keep our priorities straight by telling us to meditate on God’s word and to worship Him as King. These two key themes will be seen throughout the study. Beginning with Psalm 1 and ending with Psalm 150, we will study selected psalms in the order of their placement in the Scriptures. You will learn that the book of Psalms is not a random collection of poetry, but instead a divinely inspired and well-crafted theological composition. The Psalms prompt us to turn to the Lord and see that He is with us every moment of our lives, sovereign, faithful, loving, wise and worthy of all our devotion. They remind us to look forward to the day in which He will reign on the earth and we will worship Him as our great and glorious King. While we wait for Him, and when we see Him…. let us worship the King.

Precept Upon Precept Inductive Study – Acts Part 1 and 2

    Tuesdays / 1:00-2:30 PM / FC201 /  September 8 – March 9

After Jesus’ ascension to the Father, He sent the Holy Spirit, empowering the apostles to testify to the power of God in salvation and in living every day for the gospel. Learn how God spread the gospel through witnesses of Jesus’ death and resurrection, and from their examples. Stand in awe of the power of God in believers to endure persecution and suffering for the cause of Christ and embrace His power in your life. Observe Paul’s transformation from persecutor of the church to preacher. Join him on his journeys across the Roman world to proclaim the saving message of Jesus to Jews and Gentiles. Learn how to witness and how to live an authentic Christian life in all circumstances in the power of the Holy Spirit. Learn to be like Paul, to be bold in proclaiming the name of Jesus and to trust our sovereign Lord who enables us to endure persecution and suffering at the hands of those who hate Jesus…and therefore, hate us.
