May | Nehemiah

Nehemiah The book of Nehemiah is often tapped as a source for modeling leadership.  It records the story of one cycle of restoration for the Israelites as a group, led by Nehemiah, returns to Jerusalem from Persia in 445 BC to rebuild the walls of the city to help...

April | Revelation

Revelation This month’s adventure in Revelation gives us a great opportunity to stretch our Bible study skill muscles.  The scenes, characters, and drama that unfold are rich with both details and mystery.  You might wonder why the Lord penned so much detail without...

March 2017 | Hebrews & James

Hebrews & James This March, we’ll tackle Hebrews and James… both originally written to Jewish believers, with very different tones that provide a compelling “stereo effect” that engages the historical tapestry of faith (Hebrews) and very practical application of...

Galatians thru Colossians In February, we get to dig into a set of Paul’s letters to churches across Asia minor… in Galatia, Ephesus, Phillipi and Colossi.  In each of these letters, Paul exhibits a shepherd’s heart for the local church and God’s people.  Generally,...

September | Matthew

Matthew We kick off the Fall with a jump back into the New Testament… the first book of the New Testament, to be exact.  Matthew connects Old and New, with a comprehensive genealogy of Jesus that helps show He is the literal fulfillment of God’s promises as the Lion...

August | 2 Kings

2 Kings God’s chosen nation continues its spiral away from blessing as the Lord, in His mercy, sends prophets to shed light on the sins of the nation and call for repentance.  Greed and lust for power plagues the leadership dynamic.  Idolatry is rampant.  The...
