We will be studying the book of Esther to finish up the spring season. Join us as we study an amazing time in Israel’s history and the Woman that God put into a special position to fulfill His purpose and protect His people. Let’s explore together how God can use us for His plan even if we are unsure or confused about why we are in certain situations and/or positions at different times of our lives.
Precept Upon Precept Bible Studies are in-depth inductive studies of the books of the Bible, chapter by chapter, verse by verse. An inductive study is an investigative approach to the Bible. Precept Upon Precept materials are developed by Precept Ministries – the ministry of Kay Arthur. It is a homework-intensive study that usually takes within 3-5 hours per week.

The Will of God IS the Word of God

Dates: Mar 20 – May 15, 2018
Leader: Val Selvig

When it comes to God’s will, you may live in fear that He is holding out on you somehow. Yet, the Bible clearly reveals God’s will for your life. You only need to listen.

When it comes to discovering God’s will, author and pastor James MacDonald finds historic misunderstandings among Christians:

  • “Can you ever be sure about what God wants you to do?”
  • “What if you discover you’ve been doing something other than His will?”
  • “If you somehow stepped out of God’s will at some point, can you ever get back on track, or is your situation hopeless?”

Are you in God’s will now? Is a confident answer to that question ever possible?

The next ten weeks we will be studying Paul’s joy letter to us in Philippians. As Paul shares his desire to know Christ Jesus more deeply, may we all rejoice with Paul and rededicate ourselves to finding joy in Christ. Our final six weeks will be spent in the Psalms where we will read a collection of genuine communications that span the whole range of human emotions. David and other writers honestly pour out their true feelings, reflecting their powerful and life changing friendship with God.
