The idea behind these studies is to provide structure and promote personal engagement in Scripture – so that people can navigate their Bible with limited hand-holding or commentary. Simply Scripture informing Scripture, so that we can open our Bibles any time, any where and be able to (maybe even excited to) read without feeling lost or inadequate.

Summer 2020 – WHO you are, says WHO: a study on Identity
The world lures us, our kids, grandkids, people we love & those next to whom we walk life with all sorts of things and ways to make us okay. The peace in that striving doesn’t last long. But, what if we really knew who we are and who it is that says so? Would striving take a break and peace linger in its place?
By and in God, our identity is defined and our worth determined. Our significance is settled, which is a powerful concept considering all the things in this world of striving, laced with uncertainty that leave us unsettled. So let’s talk about it. Because, God has much to say. We’ll head to the end of Isaiah to linger in a small portion of what our God reveals about himself and about us, his “masterpiece” of all creation.
And for your listening pleasure, we have a Spotify Who You Are, Says Who playlist of songs, reminders as we walk through life. We hope you enjoy.Who, Who

So – what are you wearing? and why does it matter? It has everything to do with our identity and self-worth. So far beyond outward covering, this outfit go to soul-clothing and the question, “What is defining you?” Let’s enjoy a trunk show together as we consider those who have gone before us listed in Hebrews 11.Threads Bible Study – based on Hebrews 11
