Morning Studies

JEREMIAH

At a critical time in Israel’s history, God calls his prophet, Jeremiah—whom he formed, consecrated, and appointed before his birth—into action. Assured of his mission, Jeremiah delivers God’s message to an unresponsive people. For about forty years, he faithfully warns the people of Judah to repent or face judgement, and he painfully endures their rejection and persecution. The book of Jeremiah provides a beautiful testament to God’s mercy in warning his people, God’s justice in judging sin, God’s faithfulness in keeping his covenant promises, and God’s grace in providing our hope of salvation in his Son.

FINDING GOD FAITHFUL
A Study on the Life of Joseph

In the midst of hardship, tragedy, and unanswered questions, it’s difficult to glimpse God at work. How do we hold onto our faith during these times? How do we trust God is working all things for our good and His glory?

In this study by Kelly Minter we will trace the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.

PHILIPPIANS

It also sheds light on how to overcome toxic connection-killers like envy, comparison, and a critical spirit. Join Sue Edwards on this inductive study of Philippians, where you will discover how to find and maintain beloved, organic, healthy community.

GENESIS
Part 1 The Creation and Part 2 The Fall, The Flood, and The Nations (Precept Study)

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Do I believe this statement that God has revealed in His Book? What does this really mean, and how does it affect my daily life? Adam and Eve, the serpent and an “apple”? Are these real or imagined? Stories or fact? What difference does it make anyway?

When you immerse yourself in the Biblical account of Creation, you will be led to know your Creator in deeper ways, increasing your awe of Him. You will also gain insight into who you are in relationship to your Maker and will gain a more complete understanding of your own purpose and how to live. Genesis holds the keys to understanding the origin of sin and evil, the justice of God’s judgment, and the mercy of God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and hope for a lost and dying world. Truths found in the first eleven chapters of Genesis lay a solid foundation for the rest of the story.

DEVELOPING DILIGENCE AND DELIGHT IN PRAYER

H.B. Charles has said, “When we work, we work. When we pray, God works.” If you are like most Christians, you suspect that there is something more to prayer than you currently experience, and you long to see God at work through your prayers.

Developing Diligence and Delight in Daily Prayer is a class designed to help you come before the throne of God in a deeper, more meaningful way and transform your prayer life into a blessed time of communion with the Lord. Using the Bible as our textbook, the class will explore the prayers of David, Daniel, Solomon, Paul, and Jesus, and using weekly homework questions, we will observe, interpret, and apply lessons from these earnest, strategic, and dynamic pray-ers. Specific time in class will be dedicated to personal prayer, using the lessons learned from our scripture study. We will also discuss how to create a prayer place and prayer list that works for you; we will hold one another accountable for the practice of prayer, and each week we will end our class with praise and worship as the overflow of our prayer time.

1 CORINTHIANS

The ancient city of Corinth, like American society today, was probably rife with social and economic divisions. But the apostle Paul was very concerned when he heard that there were schisms in the body of believers there. He wrote this letter exhorting them to restore spiritual unity and become mature believers. Please join us for a year-long inductive study of Paul's practical advice to a gifted, but divided church as he discusses practical applications of the Gospel message. (Whole year study)

THE WISDOM OF GOD
Seeing Jesus in the Psalms and Wisdom Books

Wisdom. Discernment. Does God have something relevant to say about how we live and the choices we make? This in-depth study by Nancy Guthrie of the Old Testament Wisdom Books (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon) helps us to make sense of our world and strengthens our trust in God in the face of things we cannot make sense of!

How God guides us
How we can make sense of our suffering and dissatisfactions in life
How to deal with our uneven emotions, our need for security,
and our longing to be loved.

In this study, we’ll not only find wise principles for living life in this world as one who belongs to God, but we will also see the wise person these books point to – Jesus Christ, hidden in its drama, poetry, proverb and song. (Whole year study)

ANTIGUO TESTAMENTO POESIA Y PROFESIA
(Old Testament Poetry and Prophecy)

This course surveys the Poetical and Prophetical sections of the Bible. Five books are specially labeled as books of poetry: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon. These books help us to address many of the life situations that we address every day such as suffering, loneliness, anger, sorrow, and stress.

The prophets were spokesmen who represented God to man. Their job was to call the Jews to repentance from sin and lead them in obeying God’s law. Each book of prophecy is discussed and placed in its historical settings. The author provides insights that will enable the student to appreciate these rich portions of God’s Word. This study is taught in Spanish.

7:00–9:00pm, Room C214 | Begins September 5

Cost: No charge but the book for the study can be purchased in the Immanuel Christian Bookstore for $5
