This Spring, we will continue THE BIBLE STUDY, a one-year study of the Bible and how it relates to you. 


As a follower of Jesus, one of the essentials is to know the BIG STORY of God’s Word and the powerful invitation he offers us through Jesus. Unfortunately, only 30% of Christians read the Word of God. So, what do we base our faith on daily? A feeling? A few Scriptures that have inspired us along the way?  Do we know the big narrative?  Do we understand the full impact of His love letter that is still alive and living for us to enjoy each day?  It is food for our souls.

We will read one book a week. CRAZY right?!? 
If you haven’t read it, you will be able to enjoy a summary of each book and practical ways to implement it in your life!
If you have read it, you will be able to enjoy the living color of God’s design through that book and dive deeper into the details!

We want to help you build a firm foundation for your faith!  Let’s do this together! What if I can’t keep up? What if I fall behind?  What if I’m bored?
Well, we are asking the Lord to literally open up His Word in living color to us this year.

Proverbs 3:1-6 is very inspiring as we read -
"My son, do not forget my teaching,
But let your heart keep my commandments;
For the length of days and years of life (worth living)
And tranquility and prosperity (the wholeness of life’s blessings) they will add to you."

(Proverbs 3:1,2 from the Amplified Bible)
