The cold weather is here to stay, the holidays are nearly upon us, and 2019 will be over before we know it. It’s crazy how quickly these last few weeks of the year will fly by, but we’re excited for what they hold and the new year that’s right around the corner. Many of you have already been asking us what we’ll be studying together next, and we can’t bear to wait any longer to tell you. 🙂 In the near year, we’re excited to study Defined by Alex and Stephen Kendrick as our online Bible study—starting January 9.
In this 8-session study, you’ll learn to define yourself by God’s standard. To learn more about this study, watch the video below or click here.
So how will this work?
We’ll study together on our online Bible study website: onlinestudy.
When you visit onlinestudy.smallgroup.

Our hope for the online Bible studies is not that they’ll replace community in real life. Grab a friend or two or ten and do this study together. If you’re studying solo, that’s great too! We are so glad you’re here and hope you find friends and fellowship as we learn together.

**A note about the videos: For Defined, we will be offering the entire Bible study videos online for free for a limited time. Videos will remain up until March 16, 2020, allowing some breathing room for those who join in late or miss a couple of weeks. After that time you can rent the video sessions here or purchase the video sessions here.
