  • Proverbs Week 1

    Proverbs 1:1-19 The first seven verses say all that needs to be said about why we need to study the book of Proverbs. Written mostly by Solomon, Proverbs teaches us how to attain wisdom and discipline and how to live a moral life. Just look at our current political and social landscape, people all around us act with little wisdom and definitely do not live moral lives. Join us as we go verse by verse and learn to become wise.

  • Proverbs Week 2

    Proverbs 1:20-33 Join us this week as we conclude chapter 1 of Proverbs.  As we read the verses this week, ask yourself “have I rejected wisdom, correction and ignored the advice of those around me?”  Often times in life, we find ourselves opposed to the very thing we need... wisdom and correction. The end of this chapter describes those who have rejected wisdom as eating the bitter fruit of living their own way. Isn’t that so true, we must live with the decisions we make and the results they bring. Is your life marked by peace and are you Untroubled by the things of this world?

We have a part to play in gaining wisdom, but it is a journey that requires humility and zeal.  Make the decisions today to enter into the lifelong pursuit of God’s wisdom and knowledge.

  • Proverbs Week 5

    Proverbs 3:1-12 In life we will face many challenges and often the only thing we can control is our response.  How do we respond in wisdom? We take Godly wisdom and what we have learned and store them in our hearts.  It is so important that we memorize and keep God’s word close to us so we can respond in a way that reflects Jesus.

  • Proverbs Week 6

    Proverbs 3:13-26 Take a step back and look at how much fear is in our world today. We fear people, pandemics, viruses, isolation and gathering with people. We have so much fear.  Verse 25 says you need not be afraid! So why are we people who live in so much fear? Fear grows most under the cover of foolishness. As we grow in Godly wisdom fear has no place in our lives.

  • Proverbs Week 7

    Proverbs 3:27-35  When we think about missions we often think about far off countries, but we need to shift that focus. Verse 27 and 28 encourage us to focus on a more micro level… our neighbor. What would happen in our cities if we focused on truly loving our neighbors and helping them meet their practical needs?

  • Christmas Study

    This last year has been anything but typical. I am sure for most, we long for the calendar to turn 2021. However, the change year will not heal those wounds and fix those bad habits that follow us through life. To heal and grow takes a move of God and hard work. Although our holiday celebrations may look a little different this year, we still find ourselves distracted and busy. It is so important that we finish this year well and launch into 2021 on the right path! We must shift our focus, simplify everything and resolve to make Jesus the center of it all. While most Christians have these ambitions, many fall short of achieving their goals.
