Chapter 14: Where Is God? July 26, 2015 - August 30, 2015 There are times in life when we struggle to hear His voice. We can’t seem to see His hand at work and when we look around us, we wonder where He is. The lives of Esther and Ezra speak to those times in our pilgimage. His fingerprints may be all around us, but not as we expected.
Chapter 13: Restoring Worship June 14, 2015 - July 19, 2015 While the temple was being reconstructed, the Lord sent Zechariah to teach His people about the kind of worship they should offer the Lord of the temple.  God always looks beyond formal practice to the heart.  Real worship requires a deep understanding of the God who is worshiped.
Chapter 12: Starting Over April 12, 2015 - June 14, 2015 We serve a God who offers us second chances. The Lord moved kings and empires to bring His people back to the land of Israel. Starting over, they the opportunity to put first things first. But without Yahweh’s help, we perpetually fail. With His presence and His power, life is lived to its fullest.
Kingdom Come December 14, 2014 - December 28, 2014 When Jesus stepped into human history as a baby, He arrived in the most humble venue possible. Yet, He still came as King. This baby’s arrival marked the inauguration of the promised Kingdom of God. His kingdom would be pronounced through the message of the gospel of the kingdom.
Chapter 11: Exile and Return November 30, 2014 - February 22, 2015 As the kingdom of Israel fell in 586 BC, hope seemed to be lost. But the Kingdom would come. It would come in the most unexpected of ways; through a child born to a poor virgin. This son of David was the Son of God. His Kingdom would begin in hearts and would extend to the ends of the earth. Although the nations would rage, they would ultimately tremble.
Chapter 10: Broken Cisterns October 19, 2014 - November 23, 2014 Cisterns were ancient water catchment reservoirs. God tells his people they have built broken cisterns for themselves, while He is the fountain of living water. Jeremiah reveals the cracks in our cisterns, and calls us to return to the fountain, the Lord.
Chapter 9: Loyal Love August 17, 2014 - October 12, 2014 The final days of the southern kingdom of Judah were filled with the certainty of impending judgment. But God’s message through His prophets was grounded in the certainty of His loyal love. This little word in Hebrew, hesed, reminded them that God’s love would follow them relentlessly because He is loyal to His promises.
Chapter 8: Restoration’s Path May 25, 2014 - July 27, 2014 We like our own way. Each of us has taken his own path. We have left the creator and lover of our souls. But there is a restoration path, designed by the very One we seek, Yahweh Himself. As the hearts of God's people wandered further and further from Him, He sent Isaiah to call them back to restoration's path. Which path are you walking?
GMF 2014 Radical Discipleship May 4, 2014 - May 7, 2014
Chapter 7: Divided March 30, 2014 - May 18, 2014 The divided kingdom was a result of divided hearts.  The Lord looked for hearts of leaders and people who were fully devoted to Him.  He still does today.  Divided hearts lead to broken lives.
Chapter 6: The Soul Of Worship January 26, 2014 - March 16, 2014 The wisdom literature of the Old Testament shatters ritual and superficial worship, replacing it with deep cognitive truth and authentic heart response that erupts through poetry and music in soul worship of the only true God. Get ready to think hard and worship deep.
Joy December 22, 2013 - December 29, 2013
Chapter 5: Servant Kings December 8, 2013 - January 12, 2014 Servant kings were to lead Israel under the authority of God the King. Portrayed through the lives of David and Solomon, they were to lead the people in obedience to God through their personal devotion to God. They composed songs, taught wisdom for living, and strove to honor the High King through their rule as servant kings.
Chapter 4: Rejection Of The King November 3, 2013 - December 1, 2013 As the people of Israel entered the promised land, they entered as one nation under God.  This was a true theocracy with God as their King.  As long as Joshua and the other elders lived, Israel followed Yahweh.  But the book of Judges quickly reveals what happens when everyone does what is right in their own eyes.
Chapter 3: One Nation Under God August 11, 2013 - October 20, 2013 The books of Exodus through Deuteronomy unpack for us the plan of God to take a family of slaves and transform them into a nation that worships Him as King.  God's people discover that He is their Redeemer through the Exodus.  They learn of His standards of righteousness at Sinai.
Chapter 2: Covenant July 14, 2013 - August 4, 2013 God reveals Himself to be the God of Covenants. These covenants are always initiated and dictated by Him. He is also the only One who can fulfill them. The covenants provide us with hope that enables us to live by faith. Covenants play a central role in God's plan and interaction with mankind. Understanding God as the Covenantal God is essential to growing in faith.
Chapter 1: Foundations June 16, 2013 - July 7, 2013 Chapter one examines the foundational truths of Genesis 1-11, upon which a clear understanding of all the rest of Scripture depends. In these first chapters of holy writ, we discover the foundational truths about God's character, mankind's rebellious condition, and God's justice and love as the plan of redemption begins to unfold.
Cover To Cover June 9, 2013 Cover to Cover is a chronological study of the whole Bible. As we gain an overarching perspective of the whole Bible, this series pursues a deeper understanding of Theology; of God Himself, as He has revealed Himself through His holy Word. It also examines Scripture's explanation of man's condition and God's redemptive response which is driven by both His love and justice.
Where's The Proof May 26, 2013 - June 2, 2013
The Next Chapter April 7, 2013 - May 19, 2013 Having celebrated 100 years of God's faithfulness to our church, we now turn our eyes forward by considering what a response of faithfulness to Him looks like.  The Next Chapter in the life of HPBC will be written in terms of our faithfulness to God.
