We conduct Bible Studies throughout the year with varying themes depending on the season. Each study typically runs 4 – 6 weeks. We currently have an active group of Bible Study participants on Thursday mornings, but we’ve also held Bible Studies, as well as appropriate laity-led Book Studies, on Sunday mornings and evenings. We also offered a joint Lenten and Advent Studies, too. We are open to new ideas and interests to meet the needs of our extended church family.
What Makes a Hero?
What Makes a Hero? offers us an image of what it looks like to be victorious over trials and temptations. Looking at pop culture heroes and others through the lens of faith, Matt Rawle shows how Jesus turned the concept of hero on its head. In keeping with his theme, Pop in Culture, the book examines how good vs. evil, right vs. wrong, and overcoming adversity are fundamental to how Christians understand salvation. Heroes help us discern the good, fight for what’s right, define identity, execute justice, spark revolution, and save lives.
Rawle enters the Gospel story to tell quite a different victory story—one obtained through humility, obedience to the cross, and an empty tomb. How does Jesus redefine what it means to be a hero?
