"Deuteronomy and Joshua" led by Buddy Jones
Israel was God's chosen nation. He had delivered them from Egyptian bondage. In order to prepare them to enter into the Promised Land and to live as His covenant people, God gave Moses three sermons that make up the book of Deuteronomy. As Moses began, he told the nation of Israel, “And what great nation is there, that has statutes and rules so righteous as all this law that I set before you today?” At the end of Moses’ sermons he said, "(This law) ...is no empty word for you, but your very life…." When Jesus engaged Satan in spiritual battle, he quoted exclusively from the book of Deuteronomy. In fact, Deuteronomy is the third-most quoted Old Testament book by the writers of the New Testament. Join us this Fall as we study the book of Deuteronomy and discover what it is about “this law” that would make it life to Israel and impressive to the surrounding nations as well as to the New Testament writers. We will also seek a deeper understanding of the grace of God and the gospel of Jesus in the covenant messages of Deuteronomy.
In part two, under the leadership of Joshua, the Lord as divine Warrior brings his people into that Land of Promise and gives them “rest.”

"Knowing God and Making Him Known" led by Seth Stevens
The Bible states the greatest glory that man can experience is that he knows and understands God (Jeremiah 9:23-24). Jesus defines eternal life as knowing God (John 17:3). Knowing God is central to understanding the reality in which we live, as well as our own identity, and without it we will wander blindly through this life. Also knowing God is central to accomplishing our purpose on this earth; making God known. We cannot declare the excellencies of Him who saved us, if we do not know him (1 Peter 2:9). We also cannot teach the nations to become disciples of Christ if we do not know Christ (Matthew 28:16-20). This year our study will focus on the practical pursuit of knowing God and making him known. Our format as we pursue this goal will be to have lessons, followed by table group discussion, and prayer.
