SERIES GUIDES

I believe God is the author of good design. He put thought into us before he created us. He didn’t slap-dash us together, rather, he built into us everything we would need to be not only amazing, but compassionate and merciful. The greater qualities he gave us are not the most forceful all the time, so sometimes we have to create infrastructures in our lives for them to shine through.
That is what we are trying to do. Thanks for coming on this journey with us. I hope it changes you, I know it is changing me.

GAINING GROUND
We decided to change our series after our Easter “Awakening Series”. We were going to do a series on the book of Joshua, which we will come back to eventually. However, we felt that doing something that would give us an incredible dose of hope in troubling times would be more appropriate. We have decided on 1 & 2 Thessalonians in order to see what the Apostle Paul has to say about living in troubled times, and how he is deeply invested in making sure that people understand how it all works at the end of all things, and at the end of our particular lives. So we hope this brings some hope, some peace, and some wisdom to how we are all living right now.
AWAKENING
This series, our study focuses on many of the words that were said from the Cross of Christ that have evoked an awakening in people to the love, grace, compassion and hope of Jesus. For two millenia these words have shocked humanity, divided them and saved them. What we see of these final hours in the life of Jesus, by transcending the synoptic gospels and the gospel of John, is a Savior that is worth knowing, worth loving, and worth following.
THE ALMOST
The miracles of Jesus demonstrate Jesus’s absolute authority and power over the devil, sickness, death and nature, thereby confirming to all that He is indeed the Messiah and the Son of God. Also, the signs and wonders of Jesus testify to His limitless compassion for people and His longing to see people set free from all bondage. We take a look at some miracles of Jesus and we even head to the Old Testament at the end of the series to recognize that God has always been breaking through to show us the Almost.
