Current Bible Studies

In-depth Study of Phillipians

 This study of the book of Philippians provides information about the title, author, date of writing, chronology, theme, theology, outline, a brief overview, and the chapters of the Book of Philippians.

The early church was unanimous in its testimony that Philippians was written by the apostle Paul (see 1:1). Internally the letter reveals the stamp of genuineness. The many personal references of the author fit what we know of Paul from other New Testament books.

Sundays @ 9am in the Chapel

Max Lucado

Because of Bethlehem

Max Lucado loves Christmas. The carols and cookies, the decorations and favorite films, the warmth and generosity of the season. But most of all, he loves it because it’s during this time of year that people will wonder and inquire about the baby born in the manger. This little baby became the King on the cross. Christmas proclaims the truth of Easter to come.
Join with Max in this lively, heartwarming celebration of all things Christmas. Because of Bethlehem features stories both insightful and whimsical

Wednesdays @ 7pm at K Berni House
