Brand NEW!! The Book of Psalms Bible Study. Beginning the week of April 20, 2020 we will lead online Bible study groups and discuss the Book of Psalms. You can join us by reading any commentary book on Psalms or learn the SOAP method of study with us. If you want the structure of daily lesson plans, use the workbook “Stepping Up: A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent” (Beth Moore).

Our conversations for this study will be rooted in keeping calm whenever the world is saturated with fear.

God made me beautiful. I will shine Christ in me, not fear in me.

Let’s keep our heart and mind centered on Christ.

Let’s radiate love and hope and faith.

This is ALL found in the Bible, Book of Psalms.

Come join us.

SOAP Devotion Study Method

 SOAP is a method of Bible reading which follows this format. Many will use a journal, colorful pens, and creative worship. Others will keep it simple with a sheet of paper and write one paragraph for each of these four parts:

Scripture – Read a Psalm and write down a verse or two that captures your attention.
Observation – What are your personal observations from this Scripture?
Application – How does it apply to your everyday life? What can you do to apply this in your life today?
Prayer – Write a personal prayer based on your observation and application.

    I plan to use Beth Moore’s “Stepping Up” Bible study and videos. I purchased the Bible study kit at Lifeway real cheap when they had their big closing sale. Of course the SOAP method is awesome too so I may also use a journal for this method of study as well. Love studying the Psalms and what a perfect time to help us all remain calm by “Seeking Calm” through the Psalms during this terrible crisis we are all in the midst of.

    Hey Friends! I am super excited to join you on this journey!! I’m sheltered-in-place here in California and excited to have this opportunity to connect. It helps me not feel so isolated… when my church is closed and I crave that connection with Believers.
