Wednesday Mornings,
Beginning January 19th at 9:30 a.m.

Marian Coleman – Gentle and Lowly 
by Dane Ortlund
13 Lessons

Christians can easily feel that Jesus is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them. They know what Christ has done for them―but who is he? How does he feel about his people amid all their sins and failures? In Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as “gentle and lowly in heart,” longing for his people to find rest in him. This book reflects on his words, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of Christ’s affections for sinners and encouraging believers as they journey, weary and faltering, toward heaven.

Jeri Lyn Triolo – Hebrews by Dr. Michael J. Kruger Part 1 of this study includes study notes with discussion questions and an ESV Illuminated Scripture Journal.

Hebrews helps us understand the overall story of the Bible: the scope of redemptive history, how it all led to Christ, and how Christ fulfilled it all. As you study the book of Hebrews, you will see that the Old Testament was fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament and the superiority of Christ – his glory, his honor, and his divinity — above all things.  

Beverly Hardee – Joy of Living: 2 Samuel 
by Nancy J. Collins & Kathy Rowland
10 lessons with weekly commentary and daily study questions

The book of 2 Samuel continues the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, with David being acclaimed king in Israel. He makes Jerusalem his royal city and brings the Ark of the Lord there. We see the glory and success of David’s reign, as well as his weaknesses and failures. Within the pages of 2 Samuel God uncovers David’s humanity. You will discover that this man after God’s own heart (see Acts 13:22) was a sinful human, like us all, who had to depend on God’s mercy and faithfulness. Each lesson leads readers to discover fresh insights into God’s Word.

Tammy Routh – Knowing the Bible: 1-3 John 
by Michael LeFebvre 
12 Lessons with commentary and questions.

The books of 1–3 John are full of practical wisdom for the Christian life. John wanted his readers to understand that as they grew in their understanding of their identity as children of God, they ought to grow in love for one another and in obedience to God’s commands. Each study unit gives an overview of the text at hand before digging into it with a series of questions for reflection or discussion.                                 


Thursday Noon Study:
Beginning January 20th at 12:00 p.m.

Carolyn Carroll – At His Feet: Psalms 
by Hope A. Blanton and Christine B. Gordon

13 Lessons each consisting of two pages of text and 8 observation and reflection questions.

The book of Psalms, the songbook of God’s people, has been called an anatomy of all parts of the soul. This study will make your heart sing as you explore the different genres of Psalms. Each lesson’s commentary and interpretation will help you articulate the many emotional ups and downs of living as a human in a broken world. The observation and application questions will enable you to engage with these songs that Jesus sang at a heart level. 


Thursday Evening Study: 
Beginning January 20th at 6:30 p.m.

Beth Gready/Rachael Thomas – Knowing the Bible: Hebrews by Matthew Z. Capp

12 Lessons with commentary and questions.

The book of Hebrews stands apart from other biblical books in its theologically unique portrait of Jesus Christ as the supreme revelation of God—a portrait bolstered by the author’s skilled use of imagery, metaphor, and Old Testament analogy. This accessible Know the Word Series guide walks readers through the book of Hebrews, one of the most beautifully written and theologically rich books in the New Testament.
