God of Covenant: A Study of Genesis 12-50 by Jen Wilkin (11 weeks)
Walk through the stories of the fathers of our faith—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph and discover how God is working everything together for His glory and the good of His people. Discover how God orchestrates everything for His glory and the good of His people, and see how the God of creation and covenant is the same yesterday, today, and forever. There are videos associated with this study that we will watch during study time (approximately 40 minutes in length).
Matthew Part 2 by The Village Church (12 weeks)
What was God's purpose in sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth? The latter 15 chapters of the Gospel of Matthew cover the rejection of the Messiah to His resurrection from the dead. You'll learn about how Jesus is the fulfillment of God's promises to His people and how He came to establish God's kingdom on earth.
A Holy Hope: A Study of 1 Thessalonians by Erin Hardy (9 weeks)
Join us as we dive into 1 Thessalonians where we will learn how to have confidence in our salvation and how to more effectively share the gospel with unbelievers all around us. Throughout this study, we will also learn how to stand firm in our faith when faced with trials and how to please God in all we do. Lastly, we will dive into a dominant theme, the end times and Jesus' second coming, so that we can take what we've learned and live it out as we anticipate that glorious final day.
Jude by Jackie Hill Perry (8 weeks)
While often overlooked, the book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception. Dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture. There are videos associated with this study which will be watched during study time (approximately 15-20 minutes in length).

God of Deliverance: A Study of Exodus 1-18 by Jen Wilkin (10 weeks)
No longer under the protection of their forefather Joseph, the children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians. But God was raising up a deliverer in Moses to lead His people from bondage to freedom so they could worship Him. The exodus of the Israelites shapes our understanding of the whole Bible, its themes reverberating to Revelation. Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakably guided by the Great Deliverer. Israel's story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers us from slavery to sin. He lifts our eyes to the promised land where He has prepared a place for us to dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God. There are videos associated with this study that will be watched during study time (approximately 40 minutes in length).
Joshua: All God's Good Promises by Kathleen Nielson (10 weeks)
This study brings you face to face with the promise-keeping God of Joshua and the same God of today. From the first lesson where we learn of God's promise to Joshua to be with him wherever he goes, through the middle lessons of God's faithful leading, to the final lesson of the people's response to Joshua's charge 'to choose,' we are challenged to respond in faith and obedience to this same faithful, powerful, covenant-keeping God. This study encourages and inspires a love for and faith in a God who never changes and who will fulfill all his promises.
Matthew Part 2 by The Village Church (11 weeks)
What was God's purpose in sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth? The latter 15 chapters of the Gospel of Matthew cover the rejection of the Messiah to His resurrection from the dead.

There are videos associated with this study that will be watched during study time (approximately 45 minutes in length).
Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin (10 weeks)
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? The Sermon on the Mount articulates what the life of a Christ-follower should look like, asking us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? Examine the words of Jesus in-depth as He challenges us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification. There are videos associated with this study that will be watched during study time (approximately 30 minutes in length). MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS STUDY.
Better: A Study of Hebrews by Jen Wilkin (10 weeks)
Explore how God "provided something better for us" in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in the context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone. There are videos associated with this study that will be watched during study time (approximately 40 minutes in length).
1 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin (9 weeks)
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ, challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on significant picture issues for the early church, describes believers' true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter.

Nielson leads us to immerse ourselves in a dramatic story of God's people led by a godly leader at a crucial point in salvation history. As we follow the rebuilding of the wall, we witness God's faithfulness in preserving a chosen people according to his promises, and we realize our need for a savior.

With Us in the Wilderness: A Study of Numbers by Lauren Chandler (7 weeks)
The Book of Numbers continues the historical narrative in Exodus, the story of God's people newly freed from Egypt's shackles and wandering toward the promised land. Numbers is a story of wilderness wandering, but it's also a story of God's presence among His beloved. Discover how even when the Israelites rebelled, God's love and promises remained. It's in that love and those promises the children of Israel found their identity and where we must find ours today. Trade feelings of loneliness for the comfort of God's presence. Know that God's character is steady through every wilderness season. Understand how the Book of Numbers fits into the overarching redemptive story of Scripture. There are videos associated with this study which we will watch during study time (approximately 15 minutes in length).
