The Wisdom of PROVERBS
A proverb is a short, concise sentence that conveys moral truth.

Do you desire wisdom as life throws challenges along your way?  Proverbs 1:7 "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline."  We'll dovetail with Pastor Ken's insight into the book of Proverbs from Sunday mornings at West Van Baptist.  Ken recommends that we fully read through Proverbs, which we'll do - along with discussion. 

Plus, we'll review classroom-style teaching from reviveSCHOOL:  "The Book of Proverbs is a brief collection of King Solomon’s WISDOM, which was his one request when God agreed to grant him whatever he asked (1 Kings 3:5-9). This book of practical and spiritual advice presents us with a choice to listen to either the voice of WISDOM or foolishness."

Join us as we do a deeper dive into the book of PROVERBS! 

Weekly reading!  If you like to come prepared, read ahead and bring your study notes to the discussion.

OVERCOMER: 8 Ways to Live a Life of Unstoppable Strength, Unmovable Faith, and Unbelievable Power

Do you want to live a life of unstoppable strength, unmovable faith, and unbelievable power in the face of every challenge?  Learn how to become an Overcomer.

We live in a time of deep uncertainty, and yet the Bible promises that we were created to enjoy lives of freedom, even in times when the world around us seems filled with darkness. You were not made to live in disappointment, disillusionment, and defeat, and God has given you the tools to live a life defined not by your trials, but by your victories.

In Overcomer, Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah offers his insights on one of the most quoted but least understood passages of the Bible: the apostle Paul’s admonition to the Ephesians to take up the whole Armour of God (Ephesians 6:10-18).  With his signature depth, wisdom, and compassion, Dr. Jeremiah explores the powerful relevance of spiritual armor as a critical tool each day as we confront the specific challenges in our lives and of our time.

Overcomer contains:

In Christ, believers have everything necessary to live a victorious, overoming life.  If you've had enough of living in defeat, it's tie to find renewed strength and claim the promises of God's Word to overcome life's greatest threats. 

In this in-depth look at God's Word and the spiritual armor He provides, Dr. Jeremiah goes through each piece of the armour of God. Get well-dressed for warfare as you discover the importance of living life fully prepared for spiritual battle.
