Most genuine believers want to know God's will, honor God with their lives and follow his plan. The myriad of well-meaning voices we hear each can make recognizing God's chosen speakers difficult. Thankfully, God has already given us the tools to identify his true prophets.

We all have different tastes and preferences, but when is that diversity and when is it individualism – and what does it mean for covenant community and how we worship God? Join Groundwork as we study Deuteronomy 12:1-14 and 29:19-21 to address these questions.
When we think about the law of the Old Testament, it's easy to think about the confusing details, specific demands and feel like God's law was oppressive. But when we study Deuteronomy, we discover that in his farewell speech to the Israelites Moses reviews the law and in process shows us that God's law is actually a beautiful gift. In this Groundwork series we study the book of Deuteronomy to uncover this beautiful gift and see how remembering God's law leads us to freedom and life.
Advent is a season of waiting and preparation for the coming of Christ, the promised and longed for Messiah. We use words like longing, anticipation, and expectation to describe what that waiting feels like. In this Groundwork series we study the traditional Advent themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love to remind ourselves why we wait, what we're waiting for, and how we should live while we wait.
As the church began to form, the Apostles often wrote letters to new and existing churches when they could not visit in person. The letters celebrated faithfulness to the gospel, encouraged steadfast living, and corrected wayward teachings. This Groundwork series studies the four shortest letters in the New Testament: Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude to discover what these succinct memos teach us about living faithfully for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
