Studies begin the week of September 3rd and end the week before Thanksgiving. We do not meet during Knox County Schools’ Fall Break: October 9-13.
God Does His Best Work with Empty by Nancy Guthrie
Book Cost $10
It’s amazing how heavy the weight of emptiness can feel, how much room it can take up in our souls, how much pain can be caused by something that isn’t even there. But while we may see the emptiness of our lives as our greatest problem, that’s not how God sees it. When God looks into the empty places of our lives, He sees His greatest opportunity. God does His best work in the emptiness of our . . .
• Insatiable craving for things that don’t satisfy
• Relational disappointments and loneliness
• Frustrated search for purpose and meaning
• Relentless desire for comfort and security
• Ongoing struggle to live with loss and unfulfilled dreams
Through Scripture, you’ll begin to see that God really does do His best work with empty—as he fills it with Himself. Our time together will include Nancy’s video teaching.

Ephesians: Growing in Christ by Lydia Brownback

Ephesians reveals how believers, through union with Christ, have been given everything they need for a joy-filled life of faith.

Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers by Dane Ortlund

Abide: A Study of 1, 2, & 3 John by Jen Wilkin
Book Cost $25 (includes online video access)
This study will help you discover how 2,000 years later, the apostle John's words call to Christians in similar challenges to recall a great salvation and to abide in the truth. He reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it. And he reminds us as well. This study includes a weekly video.
Habakkuk: Learning to Live by Faith by Lydia Brownback
Book Cost $10
From Habakkuk the prophet we learn that when God’s ways don’t seem to make sense, it’s only because we can’t see the end from the beginning, and because in this lifetime, we get only a beginning glimpse of the magnitude of all God is. We also learn from Habakkuk what to do in seasons of waiting. Habakkuk also shows us that God is faithful to deliver His people—including us—from every trouble in His own way and time. Will we trust? If so, we will also wait, and we will prove in our own lives that God is worth waiting for. This study does not include a video.
