The Book of Romans is one of the most profound books in existence; it is certainly one of the most valued parts of the Holy Scriptures. It has been appropriately termed the Cathedral of the Christian faith. Its profound theology and impressive style were reason enough for it to be assigned the first place among the Pauline epistles. Join us as we take an in depth look at this fascinating book!

At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God’s grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?

Over the course of 8 verse-by-verse sessions, we will expand our vision to see that Jonah’s story is our own. Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, the book of Jonah offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those He has called to participate in His reconciling work.

So climb aboard and settle in as we look at how God uses extraordinary circumstances to break our hearts of selfishness, convince us of His tender care, and unite our lives to His glory.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                                           The Call
Men’s Discipleship Group

Tuesdays – 12:00 noon
(begins August 8)

This study seeks to answer the question “Who am I as a disciple of Christ?” More than a Bible study on identity, The Call  takes disciples on a journey into what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. We begin by exploring the question “Who is Jesus?” Then take learners through the priorities of a disciple, the cost of a disciple, and the fruit of a disciple. Far too often we neglect to look at the true cost of discipleship. It could end up costing everything, but true discipleship is worth that and even more.

The sessions include:
1. Who Is Jesus?
2. What Did Jesus Do?
3. Following Jesus
4. The Priorities of a Disciple
5. The Cost of a Disciple
6. The Fruit of a Disciple

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.
