Every church is made up of broken, sinful believers redeemed by the blood of Christ. Studying Paul’s instruction to the Corinthian Christians provides guidance for us still today as we seek to worship and live well together in community.
What’s one thing we can be sure of in life? That it will change. Whether change is expected or not, it can still be unsettling. It doesn't matter whether the cause of a change is our fault or not, whether a change is good or bad, personal or cultural—it’s normal to feel anxious and uncertain. People in all seasons of their faith journey ask questions of God during times of change. We long to be assured of his presence, to feel peace, to understand what’s happening to us or if God even cares. The good news is that we can turn to God’s Word in these times of uncertainty. The stories of God’s people in scripture are a testimony to God’s constant care and abiding presence. In this Groundwork series, we dig into scripture to uncover the truth of God’s faithful character and find the assurance we need to trust in him and experience his peace through life’s inevitable changes.
Join us in examining Paul’s teachings on God’s wisdom, power and authority in the church, sex, Christian freedom, spiritual gifts, and the resurrection and discover what our identity in Christ means for how we live out our own faith in light of the challenges we continue to face today.
During Jesus’ day, disciples followed their rabbi closely. They lived with him, ate with him, traveled with him. Christians today still talk about being disciples of Jesus Christ. In this Groundwork series, we’ll explore the biblical theme of discipleship. Together we’ll dig into scripture to define discipleship and explore what it looks like to be disciples of Jesus Christ yet today. We’ll discuss how we can recognize signs that we’re maturing in faith, the impact of setbacks or life tragedies on our discipleship, what we can anticipate on the journey, and why community is necessary as we seek to follow Jesus and grow in faith.
