Sermon Series & Reading Groups
Freedom is important to us. For some, the word invokes deep feelings of patriotism. How could it not? We the people have claimed it as a birthright, we defend it when it looks to be threatened, and at times we join others in their own fight for freedom — even at great cost. But as admired as freedom is, today’s political discourse suggests that when it comes to freedom, we’re not always saying the same thing. Which creates a challenge in any community, not the least the Jesus community — a community that includes far greater diversity.
So what exactly does freedom entail in the Jesus community? The first-century letter of Paul to the Galatians speaks to this in a way that is just as relevant in this twenty-first century.
In conjunction with the fall preaching series, Jimmy will be facilitating a zoom reading group discussing N.T. Wright’s newest commentary on Galatians from the Commentaries for Christian Formation series (Eerdmans). The book is available for purchase on Amazon and CBD. There are two opportunities:
• The daytime reading group meets for nine weeks beginning Wednesday, September 15 from 12-12:45pm. Click
Daytime Group to register.
• The evening group meets for nine weeks beginning Wednesday, September 15 from 7-7:45pm. Click Evening Group to register.

Fall Women’s Bible Study
STUDY WILL PARALELL PASTOR JIMMY’S FALL SERMON SERIES ON GALATIANS
Join Beth and Melissa Moore (and Pastor Jimmy on Sunday mornings) for a study of Paul’s passionate plea to early Christian communities in Galatia now liberated by Christ’s glorious gospel yet still struggling with the concept that a person is justified by faith in Christ’s death, not by works of the law. Discover―or perhaps rediscover―what makes the gospel of Jesus Christ revolutionary to those who choose to believe. Find out how everything has changed…now that faith has come.
A Study Guide that will greatly enhance your study is available for $20, which will also cover the cost of videos, shipping costs and scholarships. Study Guides are available from the Welcome Center on Sundays after each worship service and on Tuesday mornings, 9:30-11:30am.
