Monday Night Bible Study:  Fall Study 2017



by Colin S. Smith

Most Christians want to make real, noticeable progress in their walk with Christ.  We long to forgive, to have a pure heart, and to find peace in our lives, but we just don’t know how to get there.  This Bible study was created to help believers get unstuck and build momentum toward a more Godly life.  Through a series of small-group sessions, author Colin S. Smith invites group members to discover that the understanding and strength we need to pursue holiness are available through the path Christ laid out for us in the Beatitudes—a path that includes forgiveness, purity, and peace.  Find out what it really means to be poor in spirit, to be meek, and to mourn, and discover how those qualities will help you live a life in which God’s blessings are abundantly clear and present.

  • September 18 – The Keys to Momentum Through the Beatitudes
