God of Greation
by Jen Wilkin
A 10-Session Study in Genesis from Author and Speaker Jen Wilkin

The opening chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.

Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into Genesis 1-11 by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.

The Book of Job
By Derek Thomas

Why does God permit suffering? It's a question all of us have asked and the book of Job points us toward the answer. Job's questions are our questions and we can identify with his frustration, disappointment, and confusion in the midst of trials. In this twelve week series, The Book of Job considers what the Bible says about our darkest moments. He addresses the difficult question of the relationship between God's sovereignty and the existence of evil, sin and suffering. In the end, it's in our trials that we learn to trust God and say with Job, "Blessed be the name of the Lord."
