If you want to deepen your faith in 2023, we’d love to help you get started. But we also want to give you a plan for how to do this over the whole year, not just in the month of January or in Q1. That’s why we’re introducing pathways of Bible study!
Each pathway features four studies for you to experience in 2023. This makes it easy to plan for your entire year of Bible study, since each resource can be ordered now. We hope this helps you deepen your study of God and His Word over the year ahead!
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. Join Kelly Minter as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
Isaiah by Melissa Spoelstra | 7 Sessions
Following God isn’t about striving; it’s about trusting. As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote, you will learn to rest in God’s promises and trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply in the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him, you’ll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.
Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild | 7 Sessions
Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven’t experienced its power in their lives. This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life.
In this study by Jennifer Rothschild, you’ll gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23. By exploring the depths of God’s compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth, you’ll also learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.
In View of God’s Mercies by Courtney Doctor | 9 Sessions
The gospel doesn’t just change your eternal future; it changes your present reality. In this study on the book of Romans, Courtney Doctor will walk you through Paul’s powerful letter to see the glorious grace and transforming work of the gospel. You’ll be overwhelmed with the good news of God’s merciful rescue as you better understand the depth of your need. This life-changing message provides not only hope for eternity, but purpose, joy, and peace for today. And as the good news of the gospel of grace unfolds through Romans, it will compel you to proclaim God’s glorious salvation to all.
From Beginning to Forever by Elizabeth Woodson | 8 Sessions
In From Beginning to Forever, Elizabeth Woodson guides you through the story of the Bible, showing how all 66 books combine to form one unified narrative. Weaving together the rich theological truths found in Genesis through Revelation, this 8-session study shows the eternal significance of what God is doing in the world and how He invites us to be a part of it.
Amos by Jennifer Rothschild | 8 Sessions
Amos is often called a prophet of doom. And when you begin to read his prophecy, it doesn’t take long to realize that nickname fits. On the surface, his prophecy doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a cry for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). You’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. This kind of living will bring us and others around us peace and true prosperity.
Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler | 7 Sessions
Psalm 107 is a call to worship. It reminds us that each season of life is an opportunity to reveal the anchor of our souls. In this Bible study from Lauren Chandler, you’ll learn to face each season of life with courage and trust in Jesus and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. For there is no fear for the one who fears the Lord, the one whose soul is anchored in His steadfast love.
Abide by Jen Wilkin | 10 Sessions
In three short letters, the apostle John reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it. And he reminds us, as well. In this 10-session Bible study on the letters of 1, 2, and 3 John, Jen Wilkin helps you see how two thousand years later, his words call to Christians in similar challenges to recall a great salvation and to abide in the truth.
