Galatians Series

If you’ve been with us over the past year you know we have been knee-deep in the Old Testament book of Judges.  We have finally finished the book and are now turning the page (several of them actually!) to the New Testament.

Beginning August 17 we will start reading through and studying the book of Galatians together.  Galatians is without a doubt many people’s favorite book of the Bible.  It clearly defines the gospel and what it is.  It spells out for the non-believer how desperately they need Christ.  But there’s so much more than that! 

In fact, to only think the gospel is for the non-churched or the un-saved is to completely miss the teaching of Apostle Paul to the church in Galatia.  Rather than the book of Galatians being the “ABC’s of the Gospel” it’s better defined as the “A to Z of the Christian Life.” We will see that the gospel isn’t something to be responded to once, rather, it is God’s living letter to us that is to be responded to daily as we seek the Lord in all aspects of our lives. 

Galatians is about the gospel, which is dynamic and powerful, and something that we all so desperately need in our lives that are filled to the brim with hectic schedules, painful relationships, the reality of our sin and other difficulties we carry through our lives. 

I hope you’ll join us in this journey and you’ll commit to engage the book of Galatians on your own as well.
