Adult Bible Studies

Why by Adam Hamilton
Led by Mitzi Whittington, Rm 25

When the ground shakes, and a poor nation’s economy is destroyed; when the waters rise, washing away a community’s hopes and dreams; when a child suffers neglect and abuse; when violence tears apart nations where is God? If God is all powerful, and if each one of us is a beloved child of God, then how can God allow tragedy and suffering to mar his creation? In Why?, best-selling author Adam Hamilton brings fresh insight to the age-old question of how to understand the will of God. 

Book of Job
Led by Richard Williams, Rm 113

Relationships. Health. Work. Where have you encountered suffering? Wherever it is, Job knows how you feel. He experienced grief at every level. When we stumble into hardship, the first question we often ask is Why? And while spotting sorrow is easy, escaping it is hard. Suffering is a mystery, an invitation to explore and to listen. Job shows us how. You won’t find sophisticated explanations, easy prescriptions, or simple solutions. But you will find company in his wrestling and struggle. And as you follow his journey, may you also encounter his peace.

Marriage Life
Led by Brian and Christina Miller, Rm 22

A Great marriages don’t just happen. Marriage takes an intentional investment to be great. How’s your marriage? Has it been drifting toward isolation or are you intentionally working toward oneness? Take the next step and join Brian and Christina for a time of gospel centered sharing. 

James: Guidelines for a Happy Christian Life
Led by Tom Babington, Rm 26

The apostle James, the oldest half-brother of Jesus, was a key leader in the Jerusalem church. During the early days of the young church, the Jewish believers had been scattered by persecution. Out of compassion, James wrote this epistle to confront them and motivate them to test the quality and consistency of their faith.In this short but powerful book, James gives us practical guidance on issues that also measure our true and living faith and our spiritual fruitfulness. He encourages us to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only,” to “draw near to God,” and “to be patient . . . until the coming of the Lord” (James 1:22; 4:8; 5:7). James calls all believers—then and now—to live a life that demonstrates saving faith marked by godly behavior.
