1 & 2 Samuel

Join us as we begin a new church-wide reading plan through the books of 1 & 2 Samuel, which chronicle the early rise of Israel from the 12 tribes to a unified kingdom. With timely wisdom and truth, these books tell the stories of the life of the prophet Samuel, the rise and fall of King Saul, and the reign of King David. This will be a powerful time of learning from these books as we continue Living in the Word together!


As we continue our Living in the Word series, our attention shifts to the letters of Paul, written to the churches in Philippi, Colossae, and Thessalonica. Beginning with Philippians, Paul gives insight into his personal experiences, including his ability to be content in both abundance and lack. Throughout this letter, you can see his heart for people and his example of selflessness as he appeals for the church to remain in unity in Christ. His appeal rings true and is relevant for the church today. Then, in Colossians, Paul focuses on the supremacy of Christ, showcasing His sovereignty in the physical and spiritual realms. Finally, in 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Paul writes to honor and congratulate the Christians in Thessalonica for their faith and growth in the face of intense persecution, and to reinforce essential teachings from the short time he was there. We look forward to walking through the books of Philippians, Colossians, and 1 & 2 Thessalonians with you!


The Gospel of Mark is considered by some to be the most important of the “synoptic” gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), mainly because it was the earliest written. With brevity and urgency, John Mark describes the birth, life, work and teachings of Jesus Christ. Highlighted with action and vivid storytelling, this Gospel underscores the transformative power of faith and encourages us to remain steadfast in our commitment to Christ, even in the midst of trials and uncertainties. 

Whether living in the Word daily is difficult for you, or this discipline comes naturally for you, our prayer is that you would see scripture in an entirely new way as you spend time in the book of Mark. The goal of this journal is simple: we want it to be a tool for you.
