Digging Deeper on Genesis One

indexIf you’re enjoying the series on Genesis and would like to dig a little deeper, I’ve found John H. Walton’s book, The Lost World of Genesis One to be particularly helpful and very interesting as it explores the culture and worldview of the Ancient Near East and how that helps shed light on our understanding of the first chapters of Genesis. His commentary on Genesis in the NIV Application Commentary series is also exceptional. (Plus, what a great name for a writer, right?)

Genesis – The Beginning

Genesis 2.3-0Join us for our new message series: “Genesis – The Beginning” where are exploring this amazing first book of the Bible together.

This series is a part of a larger, year-long adventure called “The Old Testament Challenge”. Each week we will discover the life-changing relevance of the Old Testament as we journey through Scripture together. In addition to our Sunday morning messages, our Adult Sunday School class will be reflecting together on the weekly messages and suggested readings and digging deeper into the topics from the previous week’s message.

As a part of our Old Testament Challenge we are encouraging the entire congregation to join us in reading through the Old Testament over the next year. Each week we will have suggested readings for the week as well as questions for reflection and discussion.

If you’re looking for a good Bible to use as you read, we’d highly recommend the NIV Study Bible which is full of helpful notes, maps and charts. We have several available for only $22.

Sunday School

Want to go deeper in your understanding of God’s Word? Join us each Sunday morning beginning at 9:15 for our Adult Sunday School class!
