Faithwalkers Lenten Study
In a culture marked by workaholism, materialism, and social media-driven envy, join us in a study of the Ten Commandments to gain new insights into how God has given us a time-tested path that leads to gratitude, confidence, and peace. Our Lenten study will consider the meaning of each commandment, unpack how Jesus reinterpreted them, and explore how every thou-shalt-not was intended to point to a life-giving thou shalt. The study guide, Words of Life: Jesus and the Promise of the Ten Commandments Today (student edition) by Adam Hamilton, is available from your preferred vendor (Remember Amazon Smile!).

New Bible Study – "The Holy Spirit"
The Holy Spirit, or Spirit of God, plays an important role in both the OT and NT. It is common to think of the Spirt as the One who centers us for worship, the guide for right decisions, or the bringer of special closeness to God. It is also easy to think that the Spirit of God is a New Testament person, the Paraclete promised by Jesus during His last address to the disciples. As we look deeper into the scriptures and creeds, we will find that the Spirit is evident throughout the Old and New Testaments. As a Person of the Holy Trinity, He was present from the beginning and has been active throughout human history. In this study, we will view the Holy Spirit and His roles through scripture, creeds, and writings of biblical scholars. Bill Pailen, Facilitator
