Summer Studies Descriptions

  • biblical manhood and womanhood

    We live in a time where there is a lot of confusion about gender identity and gender roles.  With the help of author Kevin DeYoung, we will investigate what the Bible says about manhood, womanhood and how each is called to serve in the family and in the church. Leaders: Steven Burton & Beth Steinbarger. Book Cost: $15 (Men and Women in the Church: A Short, Biblical, Practical Introduction by Kevin DeYoung). 

  • the problem of pain

    If God were good, He would wish to make His creatures perfectly happy, and if God were almighty, He would be able to do what He wished. But the creatures are not happy. Therefore, God lacks either goodness, power, or both. This is the problem of pain.” Join us as we are offered gospel-centered hope and wisdom to help heal a world of suffering and brokenness as Lewis reconciles this issue with the profound depth of God’s love and power. Leader: David Gallagher. Book Cost: $10 (The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis).
