Covenant is an in-depth group Bible study that centers around our relationships with God, with each other, and with the world.  Covenant encourages small groups to connect with life’s experiences, Scripture’s mysteries, and relationships old and new.  The study emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying theme through both the Old and New Testaments. It underscores the unique relationship that God chooses to have with us as God’s people. This relationship is grounded in the faithfulness of God’s love and on our ongoing commitment to stay in relationship with God while we share signs of God's love with others.
 
Covenant Bible Study guides small groups over twenty-four sessions broken into 3 eight-session modules, with breaks during Advent and Lent:
  
  • Creating: God establishes the covenant to be in relationship with us. This first module, Creating the Covenant, examines how the covenant community is created and established. In doing so, it lays out the framework for a life lived in concert with God and others.
  • Living:  Living within the covenant translates into action—into how we behave in our everyday lives.  The second module, Living the Covenant, focuses on how covenant is applied to actual relationships in daily life, and examines the practical challenges of faithful covenant life. 
  • Trusting:  Life often presents significant challenges. Difficulties are inevitable. The final module, Trusting the Covenant, looks at the crises that sometimes call covenant life into question, and how we are restored to trust in God when troubling things happen. 


COVENANT Small Groups

More small groups beginning in September...

The Life and Letters of Paul -> This 8-weeks course will explore what we can know historically about the work of the Apostle Paul, and will set his genuine letters into their appropriate context. Paul has sometimes been called “the Founder of Christianity”; we’ll examine whether or not this characterization of his ministry is correct.

What Are They Singing About? -> The lyrics in much of the modern Christian music we enjoy on K-LOVE, Word-FM and through other sources often spring from Scripture. For 2 weeks we’ll explore these Biblical references.

Battle Plan for Prayer: From Basic Training to Targeted Strategies -> Authored by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, this 8 session study will equip believers to develop their own prayer strategy and be specific and intentional in prayer. Teachings include what prayer is and is not, why God wants us to pray, specific areas of prayer, and more.

The Story: The Bible as one continuing story of God and his people -> From the foreword by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee: “This book tells the grandest, most compelling story of all time: the story of a true God who loves his children, who established for them a way of salvation and provided a route to eternity. Each of the 31 sessions reveals the God of grace---the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens; the God whose love for his people culminated in his sacrifice of Jesus, his only Son, to atone for the sins of humanity.”
