Join us in our 11-week study of the book of Micah. The main themes of this book include: justice, humility, and mercy. This comes from the well-known verse, Micah 6:8, “He has shown you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, to love mercy, and walk humbly with your God?” We’ll study these characteristics of our God and talk through what God commands of us. How has God called us to reflect His character and obey his commands to serve God’s people and the World?

In Micah 3, the prophet critiques the nation’s rulers with some of the most shocking language in the Bible. They pervert justice, fill the city with violence, and destroy the people. Worse, the religious leaders side with these wealthy oppressors, instead of defending the vulnerable and reflecting God’s justice and mercy. But there is hope that God will give strength to those who follow his word and that he will judge and remove the unjust leaders. Join us as we look at “Justice, Truth, and Power” from Micah 3:1-12.
In chapter 1, Micah pictured how sin spreads out like an infection. Now we see how it pops up in everyday life, among people who don’t think they have a problem – even while they take advantage of others and use God’s word to justify themselves. But God promises there is healing and deliverance for his people. Join us for “Break Out,” from Micah 2:1-13.
Micah begins his prophecy portraying God—like a parent who cares most passionately about their own child’s behavior—as a judge of the nations, beginning with his own people. The sin of his people, from the capital cities down to the rural towns, cannot go unaddressed, even if the most extreme measures must be used: exile. Is there any hope? Join us for “Infectious Sins,” from Micah 1:1-16.
We begin a new series in the book of Micah. Micah lived during troubling times of moral and religious decline, political instability, and social change and injustice. Even though God’s people are judged for their part in these wrongs, the LORD promises that justice, mercy, peace, and righteousness will flourish under the Messiah’s rule. Join us as we begin our introduction to Micah, “What does God require?”
