Discovery Group Bible Studies
Discovery Group Bible Studies are practical, inductive studies of the Bible in a relaxed fun atmosphere that promote conversation, fellowship and understanding. If you've wanted to deepen your relationship with God by growing in your understanding of Him, if the Bible has seemed baffling, confusing or even boring, then these are the studies for you. Our current topic is a Survey of the History of Redemption — a chapter by chapter study, connecting God's great redemptive acts of the Old Testament to His promise of Messiah, and our lives today.
Tuesdays, 9:50 - 11:00 a.m. ordinarily at the Magnolia Springs Subdivision Clubhouse in Harvest, but because of Covid 19, we are meeting via Zoom video conferencing; contact Betty, 256-721-2465, and she'll hook you up. We have reached the Book of 1 Kings; Solomon has "rested with his fathers and was buried in the city of David his father, and Rehoboam his son succeeded him as king" (11:43). The unparalleled peace and prosperity of Solomon's early reign is sadly declining ... done in by his slacking faith and syncretistic worship of the false gods of his wives. Worse, the nation has followed, and Rehoboam's foolish decision to be harder on the people with increased taxes and conscripted labor will divide the country forever (1 Kings 12).

Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., in homes in the Monrovia area, the current study is 1 Chronicles 1. The chronicler wrote to Jews returning to the ruins of Jerusalem after fifty years in captivity to remind them of the LORD's love for and faithfulness to His people, that He has not forsaken them, and that He will help and bless them if they will trust Him and follow His lead. Chronicles is a book of hope written to people who looked around and saw little reason for it.
