Isaiah by Melissa Spoelstra led by Patricia Cappiello

Isaiah served as God’s mouthpiece to the nation of Judah but also to the surrounding nations. His message echoes into our lives today as we read his call to rely on the Lord. Using the genres of poetry, narrative, and prophecy, Isaiah communicated clearly that followers of God could trust in Him.

As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote—from his challenging words to the nation of Israel to his prophecies of the Messiah to come—learn to rest in God's promises and grow in trust.

Hebrews by Lisa Harper led by Rhonda Sallas

The Book of Hebrews is a rich, dense section of Scripture that can intimidate the most scholarly biblical student. But Lisa Harper makes digging into Hebrews fun and doable, as only she can, without losing an ounce of depth. Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also so relevant for us today, reminding us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Join Lisa as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end. (7 sessions)

Take Captive Every Thought led by Jeff Rowe

As Christians, we are often well trained in God's righteousness; however, our enlistment in God’s army places us at enmity with an unseen but very real adversary, Satan.  I John 3:8 tells us: 'the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work', yet very few Christians know how Satan attacks, how to engage the enemy in battle, or how to ultimately win the war.  Built on the foundation of 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, this spiritual warfare study offers a clear biblical path to living a victorious Christian lifestyle.
