Friday Morning Bible Study
Meets 9:30 a.m. in the Parlor beginning September 14
See God's blueprint for the Gospel unfold as we study the book of Isaiah. Called "the evangelical prophet" because of his numerous predictions of the coming Messiah and the salvation He would accomplish, Isaiah faithfully brought God's message to a people who resisted it for more than sixty years. Although Isaiah prophesied in the decades surrounding 700 BC, the warnings and promises he issued have direct application to our lives today. For more information,

Our study of the first eleven chapters of Genesis begins September 16. We will be using the workbook series God of Creation by Jen Wilkin. (You can purchase a workbook at Lifeway or online.) Please join us as we discover how “the opening chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.” 
Leaders: Robin Carroll, Robin Stooksbury, and Christy McElroy (
