romans 8 bible study

Thursdays, April 14 – June 2, 6:30 – 7:30 pm

 

Have you ever thought your life is beyond repair or wondered if God could use your brokenness for good? We all tend to look and search for purpose in our pain and suffering. Depression, anxiety, hurting relationships, and unmet expectations can cause us to question God. In this study, Pastor Steve Brubaker takes participants on a journey through Romans 8, which many scholars believe is the greatest chapter in the Bible.

This chapter reveals how God redeems, repairs, and restores us. Through Romans 8, you can understand Christ’s transformative power to repurpose hurt and brokenness for your good and His glory.

1 samuel bible study

Tuesdays, April 19 – June 21, 7:00 – 8:00 pm

 

1 Samuel is one of the most fascinating stories in Scripture. It reads more like a Hollywood thriller than the Bible. Intrigue, deceit, revenge, war, betrayal and tragedy, it will keep you wanting more.

It is the story of the foundation of the Kingdom of Israel. Through victories, losses and power struggles Israel was unified into a great kingdom, only to lose its heart because of a man consumed by his lust for power. To read and know 1 Samuel is to know much more of God’s ability to work through even our failures.
