For the Spring of 2020, our Sunday Teaching Series and our small group disussions will be based on the book of Philippians.
We have two suggested personal studies guides (to do on your own or in a huddle) if you would like to follow along with us this semester
- Christ-Centered Exposition Philippians. (Purchase HERE)
- Life Change Series Philippians. (Purchase HERE)
Overview of the Book of Philippians
Personal Bible Study Resources
- Personal Bible Study Guide (download links below) - Use this template to help you study the Bible. Each week, we want to stay in the same text together for an extended amount of time. This template will walk you through the three basic elements of understanding Scripture: Observation, Interpretaion, Application. We have also added a day for focused prayer and a day for Celebration. You can find our sermons in Romans online on our webstite or as a podcast. You can also stay up to date on what passages we have study so far on our Sermons Page. One more bonus is that this guide is great no matter what scripture you are studying so use it well and enjoy the journey. God is good, His Truth transforms, and it is for His glory and our good. Please see the videos below to help you understand each element of study. (Guide w/ Blanks Link) (Condensed One Pager Guide Link)
