The Walk – 5 Essential Practices of the Christian Life

Through October 10, we are studying Rev. Adam Hamilton’s book, The Walk: Five Essential Practices of the Christian Life. Rev. Adam Hamilton is one of our favorite authors, and we have found his books to always be engaging and challenging.

For this study, visualize that you are walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee with Jesus.  As you walk along, as one of his disciples, you will learn from the Master about the Christian life, as we journey together.  With this study, we intend to strengthen our faith and understanding of the life that Jesus envisions for each of us, as we walk with him.

No book is required; a weekly handout is emailed to each person. Newcomers are always welcome anytime!


Life and Ministry of the Messiah

Starting October 17, join us as we begin studying, “Life and Ministry of the Messiah,” by Rev. Ray Vander Laan. We will be lead on a guided tour of the Holy Land, using his set of outstanding DVD’s along with take-away handouts that provide greater background, details, and depth. 

This author, historian, teacher, and tour guide, will not only take us to places where Jesus walked and taught, but will help us understand the message of Jesus in the context of the society and politics of that time.  We will begin by contrasting the magnificence of Herod’s palace with the simplicity of the life and teachings of Jesus. For example, we will view the ruins of Herod’s palace, which was built to last forever, and compare this with the lasting message of Jesus that continues to be spread throughout the world today. 

Come join us, as we journey together. Newcomers are always welcome!
