Wednesday Night Bible Study Notes

The Gospel Comes with a House Key  by Rosaria Butterfield
 
 
 
What did God use to draw a radical, committed unbeliever to himself?  Did God take her to an evangelistic rally?  Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print?  No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically. 
 
With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same 'radical, ordinary hospitality' to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors.  Such hospitality sees our homes not as our own, but as God's tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently form us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives--helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.
Everyday Church by Tim Chester & Steve Timmis
 
A 6 Week Study on Gospel Communities on Mission
 
 
We live in an increasingly post-Christian culture. More and more we find ourselves on the margins as less and less people have any intention of ever attending church. What used to work doesn't work anymore and we need to adapt. Helping us to see the way forward, this book offers practical ideas and personal stories for engaging with Western society. Find out how to effectively reach people in the context of everyday life and take hold of the opportunity to develop missional communities focused on Jesus.

DECISION MAKING AND THE WILL OF GOD- Jess Larson

While it is our purpose to provide the student of God’s word with a Biblical understanding of God’s will for their life, it is highly suggested that these notes accompany a thorough reading of Dr. Garry Friesen’s excellent work on the subject, Decision Making and the Will of God.
