Finding Strength and Support in Scripture

It’s very tempting to think of our physical nature as separate from our spiritual nature. But the reality is, God created us as whole beings. Anything we face mentally, physically, or emotionally also impacts our faith. In this Groundwork series, we’ll consider four very painful, often debilitating mental and physical conditions that, sooner or later, we will all deal with inside our church communities and families. Together, we’ll seek comforting guidance from Scripture to help all of us cope when we or the people we love face the reality of living with conditions like dementia, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain or illness.

The Gospel of Mark

The shortest gospel of the New Testament, the Gospel of Mark contains an imperative, urgent message for its readers: Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Messiah. The writer, John Mark, employs unique literary structure, recurring themes, and dramatic style to drive our focus to recognize Jesus’ true identity and to correct our human understanding of what he came to do. In this Groundwork series, we’ll study the ministry and teaching of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Mark. Together we’ll explore its distinctive features to help us grasp the radical truth of Mark’s message and we’ll discuss the implications its abrupt and unexpected ending has for our lives.

2 Thessalonians

The Apostle Paul wrote two letters to the Christians of Thessalonica. The first letter taught them what it meant to live as Christians and addressed some of their ethical questions. Some time after, he followed up with a second letter to encourage the Thessalonians in their faith and clarify his teaching about Christ’s return. In this Groundwork series, we’ll study 2 Thessalonians to receive encouragement for our own faith and spiritual growth, to gain a better understanding of the events surrounding Christ’s return, and to gain wisdom for living spiritually in our daily lives.
