Hebrews – Chapters 1-4 (4-week study)
Join us for an in-depth look at how the Letter to the Hebrews shows us that Jesus is greater than the prophets, the angels, Moses, Aaron & Joshua.
This study is an extension of the sermon series “Greater Than.” We will look at these first chapters of Hebrews in a deeper way, as we make connections between the prophecies of the Old Testament and the life and teaching of Jesus.
This Letter is packed with teaching about Jesus Christ. It is also a personal invitation for us to look at how we sell Jesus short, not always grasping that He is greater than everything we know and believe.

When God Doesn’t Fix It: Lessons You Never Wanted to Learn, Truths You Can’t Live Without by Laura Story
Laura Story’s life took an unexpected turn when her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The devastating news forever changed their lives and brought Laura’s dreams of a fairy-tale life to an end. Yet her struggles to accept her new situation also brought her deeper joy and intimacy with God as she allowed him to rewrite her story.
In this four-week study, Laura examines the twists and turns that took place not only in her own life but also in the lives of many of the heroes of the faith. She reveals how God used crises in the lives of people such as Abraham, Sarah, David, and Paul to bring them closer to him and set them on the path he wanted them to take. She also shows how God used each of these individuals in spite of their flaws and brokenness.
God may not fix everything in our lives. In fact, our situation might not ever change or get better. But we can know that God will lead us to a place where we are better because of it.

After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters
by N.T. Wright
We all want to get to heaven, but sometimes our eternal focus overshadows how we live in the here and now. What does God want for us? Taking you on an eye-opening journey through the New Testament, Wright shows how staying in the present can radically alter the church’s work—and the direction of our lives.
As Christians, what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral? It’s easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now.
Wright dispels the common misconception that Christian living is nothing more than a checklist of dos and don’ts. Nor is it a prescription to “follow your heart” wherever it may lead. Instead, After You Believe reveals the Bible’s call for a revolution—a transformation of character that takes us beyond our earthly pursuit of money, sex, and power into a virtuous state of living that allows us to reflect God and live more worshipful, fulfilling lives.
We are all spiritual seekers, intuitively knowing there is more to life than we suspect. This is a book for anyone who is hoping there is something more while we’re here on Earth. There is. We are being called to join the revolution, and Wright insightfully encourages readers to find new purpose and clarity by taking us on an eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promise to radically alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives.

The Men’s Discipleship group provides men with the teachings and the encouragement to live lives of authentic manhood, as modeled by Jesus and directed by God’s word.
The heart of Christianity is transformation—a relationship with God that impacts not just our “spiritual lives,” but every aspect of living.
