This fall, move forward into a deeper life of worship with draw near.

  • “My experience on Bible Study Media has been one of pure joy. I was a little unsure of what to expect when I first signed up but it has far surpassed my expectations. I have been thoroughly blessed during the daily devotionals to see God in ways I had not before. God has used The Resurrected Life series to open my eyes to a more full life that He wants for me. A blessing that came from mandatory quarantine is more time to contemplate His words and discuss them via Zoom with a variety of people that I would have never met before. I have enjoyed having a theme each week that focuses deeper into an aspect of what a Resurrected Life means and how to live it. It has encouraged me to connect with people from all over as we study what God is doing in each of our lives and build each other up to be all that God has called us to be. We all desire to see the blessings that He lavishly pours out on all of us who love Him and are called according to His purpose."
