The Cross of Christ

Led by Edward Rodgers

With compelling honesty, John Stott confronts readers with the centrality of the cross in God's redemption of our pain-filled world. Can we see triumph in tragedy, victory in shame? Why should an object of Roman distaste and Jewish disgust be the emblem of our worship and the axiom of our faith? And what does it mean for us today? 

From one of the foremost preachers and Christian leaders of his generation, The Cross of Christ is a classic, accessible, and compelling look at the work of Christ. At the cross Stott finds the majesty and love of God disclosed, the sin and bondage of the world exposed. More than a study of the atonement, this book brings Scripture into living dialogue with Christian theology and contemporary issues. What emerges is a pattern for Christian life and worship, hope, and mission.

Women Who Risk

Led by Sherma Lumpkin & Amy Camp

Despite enormous risks to themselves and their families, former Muslim women are now influencing their husbands and their children and bringing others to faith in Jesus Christ. No matter where they live, these women are the God-ordained spiritual gatekeepers of their families.

Tom and JoAnn Doyle have worked for twenty-five years in the Middle East and are master storytellers of the miraculous works of God happening in the Muslim world. With a clear call to action, they "sound the alarm" to the body of Christ, using inspirational stories straight out of the underground church—stories you don’t get on the news.

The stories of these women are both breathtaking and heart-rending. Living on the edge, these women spread the gospel without fear, and the victory of the gospel is thrilling for all to see. They are the new heroes of the Middle East.


Led by Russell Cleveland

The last book of the Bible is known simply as the book of Revelation, the Revelation of John, or the Apocalypse of John. Revelation has the form of a letter, the longest letter in the New Testament (1:4—22:21). But the title, or heading prefixed to the letter, makes it clear from the start that this is no ordinary letter from a Christian leader to a group of churches. It is a letter from heaven, a prophetic revelation from Almighty God!

Sermon on the Mount

led by Jared Humphries

Jesus summons those who would be his followers to radical devotion and radical dependence on God. His followers must be meek, must not retaliate, must go beyond the letter's law to its spirit, must do what is right when only God is looking, must depend on God for their needs and pursue his interests rather than their own, and must leave spiritual measurements of others' hearts to God. In short, true people of the kingdom live for God, not for themselves. Readers should contemplate the message of this sermon. Having summarized Jesus' message as repentance in view of the coming kingdom, Matthew now collects Jesus' teachings that explain how a repentant person ready for God's rule should live. Only those submitted to God's reign now are truly prepared for the time when he will judge the world and reign there unchallenged. This sermon provides examples of the self-sacrificial ethics of the kingdom, which its citizens must learn to exemplify even in the present world before the rest of the world recognizes that kingdom.

DIY Bible Study

led by Laura Wells

Many of us rely on pastors and bible teachers to explain God's Word to us We marvel at how they can explain the relevant history of the time period compare different verses to each other or explain the original Greek or Hebrew translations We listen and learn from others all the while thinking to ourselves  I could never do that.

Well guess what, You can! You absolutely can, and over the next few weeks we are going to learn some tools that can help you do just that. During this study we will explore a book of the Bible, Isaiah, and over the next few weeks you will learn several different study strategies, so you can dive deeper into the verses yourself.
