The Look of Love
The first of Paul’s epistles, 1 and 2 Thessalonians, overflow the margins with care, encouragement and apostolic delight. In very short order, the Thessalonian congregation had become a crown jewel in the developing first century church. An example of faith and a living deposit of the Holy Spirit’s power, Paul writes of them,“For not only has the Word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything.” What exactly happened at Thessalonica? What made the young church shine like a city on a hill? What lessons - REGARDING relationship,the returning Messiah, and holiness - can we follow, as we also seek to offer Gospel–infused, Christ-honoring love in our own world? Come join us. Come find out.

Greater Still: Discover the Surpassing Power of Christ in Hebrews
Our God is greater than anything we can ever think or imagine. Thankfully He is a God who reveals much about Himself including truths about His ways, His power, and His plans. Through the course of history, God spoke in various ways, but “In these last days,” the writer of Hebrews tells us, “He has spoken to us by his Son.” In Jesus we see the greatness of God’s love, grace, and eternal power on full display. In this study of Hebrews we will take a good look at that divine greatness and see how it applies to our lives. Truth is, no matter what we’re facing or will ever face, God’s love is greater still.

Interruptions. They're aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! Priscilla redefines interruption as God's life, the result was revival in an entire city.

Come Unto Me
Do you long to hear the Creator of the Universe speak to you? Do you thirst for a more intimate experience with God? Then join us as we journal through the Tabernacle’s pattern of worship and discover how to discern God’s voice, surrender to the work of the Holy Spirit, and enter into the rest Jesus offers us. God is calling us to draw closer to Him, so may we rise up from wherever we are and come! He is waiting for us! Please note: The Tabernacle lessons build upon one another each week so attendance is crucial. Homework is also assigned.

You are Free Be Who You Already Are
Christ doesn’t say you can be or may be or will be free. He says you are free. Dare you believe it? Freedom is for everyone who wants it—the lost, the wounded, and those weary from striving. It’s for those who gave up trying years ago. It’s for those who are angry and hurt, brilliant and burnt by the Christian song and dance. You are the church, the people of God. You were meant to be free. The six-session video Bible study covers the following: • Overcome the exhaustion of meeting others expectations and rest in the joy of God’s freedom. • Release stress and anxiety to uncover the peace that comes from abiding in God’s presence. • Find permission to grieve past disappointments and find strength in your journey toward healing. • Throw off self-condemnation, masks of perfection, and step boldly into God’s purpose for you. • Discover the courage to begin again and use your newfound freedom to set others free.
