The Gospel Project
The Gospel Project for Adults takes the story of Jesus - the gospel - the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and points to one story that infuses Scripture from cover to cover - God's redemptive plan to rescue us from sin and death. Because the entire Bible points to Jesus it is important to examine the theology and mission within the text, as all of it is an important part of understanding the awesome depth and power of the gospel.
All of the children and youth will use the curriculum as well as one of our adult Sunday school classes. You can check out the website for more information: www.gospelproject.com
The God Who Saves
Scripture, from beginning to end, declares that sin destroys. From the pride on display in the garden of Eden to the violence reported daily on the evening news, the evidence is clear and abundant –because of sin, life ends in death. This death is perpetrated daily even through sins such as envy, greed, sloth, gluttony,lust and wrath. Whether we realize it or not, we’ve all dealt with these sins at one time or another. What’s more, these sins aren’t just things we do – they’re who we are. As Scripture says, we are sinners, and the wages of sin is death.
But Scripture is equally clear that before time began, God planned a rescue mission. In the outworking of His plan, He calls sinners to salvation, service and submission. We respond to His call with repentance from sin and faith in Jesus, whose life, death, and resurrection secure our salvation. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, we are united to Christ, from whom we receive life in the face of death. Now the plan of the Father calls on us to share Christ with the world in the power of the Spirit –“Be saved from sin!”

Tell Me the Old Stories Again
We teach them to our children from the time they are babies. We reteach them in Sunday School and VBS and we often have them memorized. We call them Bible stories and if we aren’t careful they do become tales to us, fables like Cinderella or Peter Pan. Indeed they are real stories, about real people with real strengths and weaknesses and most importantly with a very REAL God. That is to say our God. All women are invited to join us as we trust God to remind of us the truths learned by these heroes of the faith about their very real God. Dear sisters, If you have giants to slay in your life, are facing a den full of lions, found yourself alone in a foreign land or on a boat full of animals, please join us as we seek God’s truth for women of the 21st century.

Esther, Ezra, Nehemiah –The Providence of God
Providence is God using what is frequently called chance or mistakes to stitch events into a tapestry of meaning. It refers to God's governance of all events as He directs them toward His intended end. The Old Testament books of Esther, Ezra and Nehemiah provide a beautiful picture of God's providence over the smallest of circumstances for the purpose of redeeming His people.
Too often we miss rich truths that can be discovered from exploring Old Testament books of the Bible. Ancient peoples and distant lands don't always appear, at first glance, to be the most relevant for our own situation. Yet we do ourselves a disservice if we neglect the study of God's dealings with His people under the old covenant. We miss portraits of the God who calls, chastens, heals, nourishes, fights and provides for, and ultimately redeems His people.We too need this God.
In the New Testament, Paul writes that Old Testament things were written for our instruction (1 Cor. 10:11). If a peasant girl can become queen just in time to prevent ethnic genocide, we can be encouraged that there is nothing God cannot do. We pray this study of Esther, Ezra and Nehemiah will strengthen your faith in the God who orders all things for His renown and for the joy of His people.
