Covenant Bible Study

Covenant: A fresh look at a timeless promise; and in-depth study;  an accessible message.

THE BIBLICAL CONCEPT OF COVENANT speaks to an enduring commitment between God and God’s fruitful people. It’s a promise—to live in a loving relationship with and for each other. 

So the purpose of COVENANT BIBLE STUDY is to engage participants in conversations about this unique and special relationship—as well as our relationships with each other and the world around us—as we study the Bible together. The goal of COVENANT BIBLE STUDY is to deepen our understanding of scripture while also helping us respond together in answering God’s call to a faithful life in Jesus. So it embraces a learning experience that builds trust in others and confidence in scripture for each participant—leveraging not just scriptural examples but also personal memories of God’s faithful love. It helps participants, through sharing and conversation, apply the Bible to their personal story. 

 COVENANT IS A 24-WEEK, IN-DEPTH GROUP BIBLE STUDY in which people read and discuss the Bible together; learning how to love God—and others—better.  It differs from other Bible studies in that it emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying pattern throughout the entire Bible. It underscores the unique relationship that God chooses with us as God's people.  The program covers both Testaments—discussing books from each in a way that shows the interconnectedness of scripture as a whole.  But deep, committed study needn’t be complex. It should be flexible. Relevant. And engaging.

That’s why COVENANT BIBLE STUDY is broken into three eight-week modules—each dealing with a different aspect of what covenant means: 

CREATING

LIVING 

TRUSTING
