Can you believe it’s already time to start thinking about fall? Crisp weather, changing leaves . . . Many of us are wishing for this change amidst warm summer days! As we near this next season, we wanted to round up our favorite studies for fall:
Amos by Jennifer Rothschild | 8 Sessions (Coming August 2022)
Amos is often called a prophet of doom. And when you begin to read his prophecy, it doesn’t take long to realize that nickname fits. On the surface, his prophecy doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a cry for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). In Jennifer Rothschild’s newest study, you’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. This kind of living will bring us and others around us peace and true prosperity.
Isaiah by Melissa Spoelstra | 7 Sessions
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—you’ll learn to rest in God’s promises and grow in trust. Unpacking Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him, you’ll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.
The Gospel on the Ground by Kristi McLelland | 7 Sessions
Come along with biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland as she unpacks the life of the early church in the book of Acts and shows us that the kingdom of God is always on the move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. In this study, you’ll see how God’s Word can sustain us even in the most difficult of times and embrace the transformative grace we experience as children of God in His kingdom of celebration.
The Bible in a Year by Kandi Gallaty
We live in a day and age when the demands on our time are relentless. It’s no surprise that many of us struggle to implement daily Bible reading, but it doesn’t have to be that way. God wants you to experience the life change that happens when you prioritize spending time with Him.
Join Kandi Gallaty on this year-long journey from Genesis through Revelation. With journaling and weekly Scripture memory challenges, you’ll walk through key passages of the Bible at a manageable, 5-days-per-week pace. And you’ll discover the transformational joy that comes from integrating God’s Word into your daily life.
Elijah by Priscilla Shirer | 7 Sessions
Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.
Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.
Better by Jen Wilkin | 10 Sessions
Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise.
In this 10-session, verse-by-verse study of the book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). You’ll explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope in Christ alone and being reminded that Jesus is better.
In View of God’s Mercies by Courtney Doctor | 9 Sessions
The gospel doesn’t just change your eternal future; it changes your present reality. In this study on the book of Romans, Courtney Doctor will walk you through Paul’s powerful letter to see the glorious grace and transforming work of the gospel. You’ll be overwhelmed with the good news of God’s merciful rescue as you better understand the depth of your need. This life-changing message provides not only hope for eternity, but purpose, joy, and peace for today. And as the good news of the gospel of grace unfolds through Romans, it will compel you to proclaim God’s glorious salvation to all.
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. Join Kelly Minter as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst | 6 Sessions (Now with video access!)
What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study, you will learn to trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
Seamless by Angie Smith | 7 Sessions (Now with video access!)
Whether you’ve grown up hearing Bible stories or you’re exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming. Seamless will help replace the insecurity that holds you back with clarity and confidence in your understanding of Scripture.
This study by Angie Smith covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. By exploring the overarching and interwoven themes in both the Old and New Testaments, you’ll gain an understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word.
