Unveiled: 2 Corinthians 3-4

Following our Exodus series, we examine two chapters from a letter the Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth roughly 1500 years after the Exodus. 2 Corinthians 3 and 4 provide a helpful reflection on Moses and the Old Covenant demonstrating how Christ has come to illuminate the dim image of God available to ancient Israel. In contrast to the flashy preachers that had begun to sway the Corinthians from their commitment to Paul’s gospel, Paul takes us through a beautiful presentation of the true glory of God and explains how it transforms everyday life. The New Covenant tears the veil that once hid God’s people from His glory, freeing us to experience the Lord face-to-face.

Exodus: The God Who Renews

As we continue our study of Exodus, we see how the God who rescued His people from Egypt is also committed to renew their hearts and minds. In the beginning of the book, God’s people labored in slavery under the harsh rule of Pharaoh; in the second half, they will learn to serve under the gracious rule of the Lord. Along the way, God will renew His people according to His Word. As we learn about the law and the tabernacle, Christians are reminded that we are not only set free from sin, but have been given new life in Jesus so that we can enjoy His presence and live for His glory.

Dreamers (Advent Series 2018)

In Psalm 126:1, the Psalmist says 'When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.' He was saying, the Lord had done something so incredible it was like a dream and almost too good to be true. But it wasn't a dream. As we observe another season of Advent we will celebrate another moment in our world's history that seems almost too good to be true. The moment where God humbled Himself and came, in the likeness of men, into this broken and sinful world to dwell amongst us. And so during this season of Advent we celebrate this almost to good to be true reality! Join us, beginning Sunday Dec. 2, for a 4-part Advent series we are calling 'Dreamers', in which we will study Matthew chapters 1 and 2.

Exodus: The God Who Rescues

Israel's exodus from Egypt is one of the most well-known stories of the Old Testament. We tend to remember many of the fascinating details (like the burning bush or the powerful plagues), but the book's main focus is how the Lord revealed Himself as the God who rescues His people. In this study, we will learn about how this incredible story helps us make sense of our lives today by preparing the way for the coming of Christ.

One Another

"By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another" (John 13:35). With these words, Jesus established a new ethic for His disciples intended to impact their experience and their witness to the world. The New Testament contains numerous commandments that expound on the particulars of what life in Christian community ought to look like. Join us as we explore key "one another" passages and learn about the call toward biblical community.

Be the Church | A Study of Ephesians

Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians provides a direct treatment of union with Christ, the nature of the church, and how we are to experience new covenant life. Ephesians offers some practical answers to basic questions about the Christian life. In this series we study the epistle in order to glean these benefits, while we also see how the teaching of this book directly informs our specific vision and values as a local church.
