1 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.
Study will be led by Kim Perik.
The Good and Beautiful God: Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows by James Bryan Smith
"God wants me to try harder." "God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad." "God is angry with me." We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true--but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In fact, Smith declares, the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. The path to spiritual transformation begins here. Turning to the Gospels, Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Once you've discovered the truth in Scripture, Smith leads you through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind. At the end of each chapter you'll find an opportunity for soul training, engaging in spiritual practices that reinforce the biblical messages on your mind and heart.
Study led by Melanie Hammer, Missions Director at Crosspoint.

The Amazing Collection
The Early Minor Prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah (Volume 6)
The Later Minor Prophets: Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi (Volume 7)
The Bible is simply a love letter compiled into sixty-six books and written over a period of sixteen hundred years by more than forty authors living on three continents. Although the authors came from different backgrounds, there is one message, one theme, one thread that runs throughout the entire Bible from the first book, Genesis, to the last book, Revelation. That message is God’s redeeming love for mankind—a message that is as relevant for us today as it was two thousand years ago. The scope of The Early Minor Prophets (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah) and the Later Minor Prophets (Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi) is broad indeed. Chronologically, they span more than four centuries from approximately 848 to 425 BC. Geographically, they touch Israel, Judah, Syria, Moab, Ammon, Edom, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Assyria. Thematically, they explore such topics as love, mercy, compassion, wrath, judgment, holiness, obedience, disobedience, hope, repentance, and many more. As you begin your study of these books, be prepared for gripping and graphic portrayals of both God and man: Hosea’s picture of God’s love for his adulterous people symbolized by the prophet’s love for his adulterous wife; Jonah’s portrayal of himself as a disobedient, runaway prophet pursued by a patient God; Amos’s colorful visions of God’s judgment that would come because of his continued disobedience; and Obadiah’s classic portrait of pride. You’ll witness Nahum’s stimulating description of God’s power, Habakkuk’s personal struggle with faith, Haggai’s no-holds-barred call to action, and Malachi’s piercing questions penetrating right to the heart of true spiritual living. The setting of these books may be ancient, but their message is modern. You will meet the eternal God in them — and you will meet yourself.

20 something Women's Bible Study
Wednesdays at 7:00pm
The desire of Crosspoint Women's 20 Something Bible Study is for young women to unite with one another in friendship as well as learn & encounter God in a new & exciting way.
They are currently studying The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer.
All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.
But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.
The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer's inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.
We are always looking for people to join our group. Anyone is welcome at anytime!
