"Studies in the Book of Daniel"

June - September

After working through the book of Daniel chronologically, we come at last to the final three visions given to the prophet foretelling the coming of the Messiah and the final judgment in heaven. Emphasis throughout this study is on the immense relevance Daniel's message has to modern-day Christians here in the United States.



Reformation Celebration: 

"John Knox: A Biblical Clash with the Culture of the World"

October 6 - 27

The Reformation began with Luther's grasp of man's true justification by faith before God. That was followed by Calvin who understood how the Bible taught truth in an entire system of doctrines. It fell to John Knox to implement that system not only within the church but in society.



"Seasonal Studies from Psalm 103"

November 10 - December 29

The approach of the holiday season always brings with it the busyness of preparations and celebration. in order to appreciate the meaning of these special days from a biblical perspective, we will reflect on how we are to worship our God with a season of thanks, the celebration of the birth of the Christ-child, and the biblical call to number our days aright.
