ESSM 115 : Acts | Kitchen

Teacher, Anton Jackson

Acts is a study of the church’s beginnings. Luke shows how the Gospel moved in power and victory from Jerusalem into the Gentile world in spite of fierce opposition. Join us as we discover what the early church went through and find our place in the work of God as He continues to move through the church.

ESSM 215 :  Romans | Kitchen

Teacher, Marc Leduc

Paul wrote this letter in anticipation of his ministry in Rome and his planned missions trip to Spain. Come and discover his purpose in writing this letter as Paul corrects rumors and puts into writing the foundation truths of the Gospel, specifically that righteousness that is ours based solely upon Jesus Christ.

 ESSM 318 : The Pentateuch | Kitchen

Teacher, Pastor Harry Hunt

Join us as we begin a study of the first of three divisions of the ancient Hebrew Canon. This section is composed of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. Moses is the traditional author. The Pentateuch is the foundation of all subsequent divine revelation. It describes the beginning of the cosmic universe, of man, of human sin, of human civilization, of the nations, of God’s redemptive work in type and prophecy.
