As we move past our study on the attributes of God, we dig into one of the main ways He reveals this traits, the local church.

If you have ever thought “I can be a Christian and not go to church”, “Nature is my church”, or “Where two or three are gathered, there is church so I don’t need to go…… we invite you to go a step deeper. While those thoughts are common in today’s culture, we will see why it simply does not hold water to the Scripture and how you are being cheated out of the benefits of Christian community the way God designed it.

One of the key ways that God’s of is revealed is through fellowship within the church. It’s taught, modeled and commanded. It is for your good, pleasure, and witness. While you may have had bad church experiences in your past, take some time with us to strip that away and dream about what it would be like if you experienced fellowship the way God has designed. It’s within your grasp.

(If you think it’s not, please watch the podcast. Romans will guide you to God’s heart for you.)

I AM: From Me to We

As we transition from the “I AM” series (studying the attributes of God) to a new series that builds on these truths, we look at how God reveals Himself through the church.

In a day and age where many are abandoning the church due to past hurts or life circumstances, we find that God is faithful to the Church and desires to pour into our lives and bless the world through His church.

Spend some time with us as we take a bend in the path into finding what is the point of church…. and why you shouldn’t miss it!

 

I AM: Faithful

“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end: they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3: 22-23

Many struggle with not feeling good enough to go to God, church, or to others they feel may look down on them for mistakes in thier lives. If Satan had his way, he would get you to a place where you feel unreachable and alone. He would have you believe that God is angry at you and has left you behind.

The truth is this: God loves you and He is faithful even when we are not. In this study, we will be looking at the life of Jacob to see this reality in action. We pray you join us fellow strugglers as we dive into God’s faithfulness.

I AM: Loving

If I told you that God is loving … what would your first thoughts be?

Would you already know it and be enjoying that relationship daily? Would you know it to be true but find it hard to feel within yourself? Would you think that’s true for others but not for you?

As we continue looking at the attributes of God, the next one we tackle is the fact that God is loving. We will explore a time in the life of Peter that reflects the patience, mercy, and love of God in your life today!

I AM: Just

“Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.” Isaiah 30: 18

The justice of God is a topic that we discuss often without really realizing it.

– Why do bad things happen to good people?
– Why do good things happen to bad people?
– Why isn’t life fair?

These questions lead us to examine how does God’s justice work in this world and what does it mean to our lives today.

We will be exploring God’s justice in this study and we pray you can join us. Having a right understanding of God’s justice is pivotal in our relationship with God and opens up worship, joy, and peace in our lives as we move boldly in His mercy and truth.

I AM: Wise

“Oh, the depths of the riches both of wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways.” Romans 11: 33

Getting through this life can be tough. Many of us have big decisions before us and not sure which way to go. For others, we feel stuck in a rut and don’t know how to move forward. For others still, we feel we have tried everything by following advice, self help books, and our best efforts but we are not getting very far.

In this study, we dig into a moment in David’s life that shows the real difference it makes when we lean into God’s wisdom! We will explore practical ways to receive, know, and follow God’s wisdom that unlocks doors and moves us forward. We pray you can join us!

I AM: Sovereign

When it comes to the sovereignty of God, we find one of the key reasons to not only believe in God but why it’s such a comfort and a life line to lean into Him.

As Chip Ingram puts in his book, “The Real God”…

“The reason I believe in the God of the Bible and worship Him is because He is before all things, He created all things, He upholds all things, He is above all things, He knows all things, He accomplishes all things, He rules over all things, and He is in control of all things. That’s the reason I believe Him and have given my entire life to Him in faith and in trust that He is superior to all the other truth-claims in the world. He is not just another “-ism” out there to be considered. He is infinite and eternal, over all and worthy above all. I worship Him because He is sovereign.”

Join us as we explore an address given by the Apostle Paul on the “unknown God” who desires to be known to the city that was the intellection hub of His day, Athens.
