“The Lord your God is with you.”

Read Joshua 1:1–9

Discussion Questions

  • How does God’s presence help give us courage when stepping into a new season or scary situation?
  • What role does obedience play when stepping into new things?
  • God’s speech to Joshua on the border of Canaan is filled with exhortations for Joshua to be strong and courageous. Can you give examples of areas in which you need to be strong and courageous? Where does this strength/courage come from?

Isaiah (chapters 40 to 66)
January 8 – June 25, 2023
Sunday morning, 9:00 – 10:15 a.m.
Fellowship Hall
Taught by Keith Howland

Join us for this inductive study of this early Gospel written seven centuries before Jesus’ birth. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all”
(Isaiah 53:5–6).

Center for Biblical Transformation

Winter Semester
January 3–March 28, 2023

Enrich your knowledge of God and his Word! The Center for Biblical Transformation offers college-level courses designed to deepen your understanding of the Bible and Christian theology, help you be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ and prepare you to serve in his kingdom.

Join our four-course certificate program, or take any course at any time with no commitments. Courses are offered for ten weeks in the fall and in the winter.

The purpose of the program is to experience God’s truths personally and to share the message through your life to others. This is your opportunity to discover that living with Jesus involves learning his transforming truths and passing them on to others!  I invite you to prayerfully consider your involvement in the Center for Biblical Transformation.

by grace alone,
Dr. Bill Krewson
Senior Pastor of Discipleship
