What is hope?  How do we know if our hope is placed in that which is lasting and secure?  We look at these questions in light of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Abraham's example and Mary Magdalene's testimony. Speaker: Aaron Yoder

Christians talk often about faith...but what is it?  How is faith defined according to Scripture?  What does Abram's story tell us about the difference between faith and saving faith?  We consider those questions as well as look ahead to the suffering of Jesus in order to anchor of our in that which saves.

How does God view worship?  Likely, many Christians have ideas of what worship is but rarely do we try to ask the question from God's perspective.  We dig into this topic by studying Cain and Abel's first recorded sacrifice to the Lord and what was motivating them in their worship of the living God.

Who is God?  This universally relevant question is so significant, yet we can easily skip past it while in conversation.  Would you be able to describe the true nature of God concisely and Biblically?  Study through part of His character in order to engage a culture which tends to misunderstand or ignore God.
