27. Nahum Summary Verse

Nahum prophesies the destruction of Nineveh and the Assyrians and comforts God's people that He is in control, that He is good and is our protection. This is a comforting assurance that the LORD is our refuge and strength through the troubles of this life. Our summary verse is from Nahum 1:7: “The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble; And He knows those who trust in Him.” – (NKJV)

The Apostle Andrew

The church remembers the Apostle Andrew on November 30th. Andrew was one of the more familiar disciples, but as we dig into the life of this apostle, there may be a few details that you were not aware or did not remember. He was the brother of Peter, but was first a disciple of John the Baptizer and the one who introduced Peter to Jesus. He was a fisherman from the city of Bethsaida, was a witness of the Savior's ministry and resurrection. Tradition holds that he was crucified on an X shaped cross, which has become known as St. Andrew's Cross. Join us as we dig into the Bible and other historical information to learn about this disciple of Jesus and as we apply what we learn to our own lives today!

Bible Study: Zephaniah

What do you remember about the prophet Zephaniah? Many may know nothing more than his name. But the words of the prophet Zephaniah who ministered to the people of Judah during the reign of good king Josiah are also intended for us. Zephaniah proclaims the "day of the LORD" and His judgment against sin, especially that of idolatry. He reveals that we are just as guilty as the people of his day. But he also points to the grace of God and the joy of the one who trusts in His mercy through the coming Christ. Join us for this needed review of a valuable book!
