Our Summer Bible Study begins this week! We are excited to study the Minor Prophets together and would ask that you consider joining us in our Summer Reading Challenge. This challenge will take us on a journey exploring the reality, grief, and hope about which the Minor Prophets speak. As we read God's word together as a family of faith, our prayer is that our journey together will lead us toward our ultimate hope: God made known in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.

About This Message Series
God's people have always needed truth tellers. God's people have always needed stern calls to repentance. God's people have always needed reminders of God's faithfulness to the very end of the age. In the Old Testament, God provided prophets to meet these needs. One could summarize the work of the prophets in three words: reality, grief, and hope.
This summer we will study a small section of the Old Testament known as the Minor Prophets. Despite beginning as separate books, they were traditionally sewn together into one scroll. The unity of the scroll from which ancient rabbis taught these books points to their unified message of God's steadfast faithfulness and unyielding determination to rescue His people. Today we see their unity pointing us to God's ultimate rescue plan, Jesus Christ.
Join us on this journey exploring the reality, grief, and hope about which these prophets speak. Our prayer is that our journey together will lead us to our ultimate hope:
