Our Bible courses will give you the opportunity to learn in community as we read entire books of the Bible line-by-line, and in the process you will discover how to comprehend the facts, accurately interpret the passage in context, and then apply it to your own life. So not only will you increase your biblical literacy, you will also develop the skills and tools needed to faithfully interact with and discern God’s Word on your own. Through our Bible Courses, we want to help make understanding Scripture and theology accessible for every believer in our church.
In this 10-week course, we will examine the book of Galatians and therefore come face-to-face with the gospel. This book focuses on the freedom of salvation by grace alone and through faith alone. Paul warns of the dangers of abandoning the truth of the gospel, he defends the gospel’s superiority, and he lays out what living in Christian freedom should look like. This inductive study will guide us to better understand the joy and freedom God has offered us through the work of His Son and the guidance of the Spirit, all on the basis of His grace. This book is meant to leave us basking in deep significance, security, and fulfillment–the life of blessing and abundance God calls His people into. Throughout the study, we’ll be assessing how we apply the gospel to our daily lives and live by grace. There will be three main parts to this course: personal study, group discussion, and video lecture. This structure allows us to go line-by-line to truly understand and apply the text and doctrine to our walk with God.

Class Administrator: This role is for those who have both an ability to stay organized and a strong desire to pray for others. They will be the main point of contact for any prayer requests and questions about the class. They will be the one communicating and reminding course members of the details of the class while also praying over each of the class members.
