What does it mean to “seek first the kingdom of God” in our relationships, values, ambitions, finances and commitments? Jesus’ answer to these questions amazed those who first heard the Sermon on the Mount. In this study guide, you’ll dig deep into his startling and challenging message–the greatest sermon ever preached. This LifeGuide Bible Study features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection. Leader’s notes are included with information on study preparation, leading the study and small group components as well as helps for specific Bible passages covered in the study. Presented in a convenient workbook format and featuring the inductive Bible study approach.
Dr. Steve Minor will lead a class on the Parables of Christ, meeting Wednesday mornings at 10:00am. Each week will feature a different parable for discussion and reflection. We all love a good story. But the parables of Jesus are even better than that. They sneak up on us, catching us off guard and toppling our easy assumptions. When the familiar takes an unexpected twist, we find our secret thoughts exposed to the healing light of Jesus. This Bible study introduces twelve of the greatest stories ever told; how might they change your thoughts and actions?
