HABIT

2021

Season 1

SEASON 1 Focus: WISDOM 

2020 was a disorienting year on so many levels, wasn’t it? 

 

One of the things that came to the surface last year was how much we need the

wisdom of God to navigate the increasing complexity of our world. 

 

In response to that, as we enter 2021 as a church, we’re going to begin our

WordHabit focus by immersing ourselves in the wisdom of the Book of Proverbs.  

 

Christians and non-Christians alike have gone to the Book of Proverbs for life-wisdom for over 2700 years. 

 

As followers of Jesus, we understand the reason why this book has stood the test of time is because it is inspired by the Holy Spirit. That means that as you read Proverbs, not only are you going to receive wisdom for life, but you’re going hear the voice of the Holy Spirit speak to you through the words of this book. 

So, whether you are an avid Bible reader or this is your first time exploring God's word, we invite you on this #WORDHABIT journey with us.
