We believe in growing disciples of Jesus. A big part of growing in Christ comes from learning more about God’s word, the Bible. Madison is a place where you can ask questions and reason together with other Christians to learn more about the life Christ calls us to live.
Join us for Bible Study on Sundays at 5:00PM and Wednesdays at 7:00PM. Our Sunday studies are divided into general age and life stage groups while our Wednesday night studies are multigenerational. We encourage you to join any study that you are interested in.
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21
The theme of this passage is how to love with sincerity (verse 9), and the instructions require us to set aside our natural tendencies. God’s way always challenges our fleshly nature and calls us to live at a higher level. The human way is to curse those who curse us and try to overcome evil with more evil. But, according to Romans 12:21, we can only overcome evil with good. God’s goodness is stronger than any evil. During the quarter, we will focus on three areas: overcoming anger with love, overcoming materialism with generosity, and overcoming fear with faith. Our goal for the quarter is to help us understand when we respond to evil with humility and grace, we are proving that good triumphs over evil.

WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY
Our mid-week Bible studies are inter-generational studies that cover a variety of textual and topical studies. Join us each Wednesday night for Bible study at 7PM.
Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” This quarter we will teach and admonish one another through singing and edification. Each class will have a theme that will consist of a mixture of old and new songs along with scriptures and prayers. Join us each week as we teach and admonish one another with praise, glory, and honor to God.

Paul wrote 2 Corinthians from Macedonia a year or so after writing 1 Corinthians, during his third missionary journey. He had just finished his three-year ministry in Ephesus and was visiting the churches in Macedonia as he made his way to Corinth. In Macedonia he met Titus, who had returned from Corinth with news about the church there. This epistle stands out for its themes of comfort in the midst of affliction, strength in the midst of weakness (as exemplified by Paul himself), and discerning true teachers from false ones. Paul’s example and teachings in 2 Corinthians inspire us to remain true and faithful no matter the circumstances or the consequences.
Trading in My Cliff Notes Life
Danny Holmes, Matthew Houts, J Walton | 206A
Ever felt like you’re living an abridged hurry-hurry-hurry version of your best life? This quarter, three guys – all in different stages in the journey – will lead weekly discussions focusing on trading in the “Cliff Notes” versions of life for a new abundant life Jesus promised in John 10:10. Sharing Scripture, research, and anecdotes, we’ll try to make it simple … and take it
Changes in Attitude & Lattitude
Mike Baker | Auditorium
Although the Bible is not a geography book, it is a book filled with geography. This geography influenced the way the authors of the Bible thought and communicated. Geography appears on nearly every page of our Bible. If we miss or misunderstand the geography of the Bible, we may miss or misunderstand a part of what God wants to share with us through His Word. During this class, we will see the importance of developing a mental map that is close to the one the biblical writers had when they wrote. We will understand the importance of organizing the Bible geographically to see the relationship between portions of the Bible that are linked to one another by location.
David Morrison | Fellowship Room
Paul tells us in Rom 15:4 that we have the Old Testament to teach us and give us encouragement. The minor prophets are full of lessons that are as applicable to us today as they were to the people long ago. In the minor prophets, we learn about God’s dealings with the Jews and the nations around them from about 800-400 B.C. In this class we will learn some of the historical background of the books, the theme of each book, how God deals with people in general, and something that will help us remember each book.
