Monthly book challenge

Join your MVC family as we work our way through a book every two months. Bring your questions and observations to the end of the month discussion and share what you have learned.  Discussion time will be after Wednesday night Café.

  • march/April 2020

    We live in a time of division.  It shows up not just between political parties, ethnic groups, and churches, but also inside of them.  In How the Nations Rage, political theology scholar and pastor Jonathan Leeman challenges Christians from across the spectrum to hit the restart button.  When we identify with Christ more than a political party or social group, we return to the Church's unchanging political task:  to represent a heavenly and future kingdom now.  Join us for this reading during March and April.  Books will be available for $8 at the Connection Center.  Discussion will be in April.

  • January/february 2020

    For January/February 2020, we will read Randy Alcorn's, The Treasure Principle.  Jesus spent more time talking about money and possessions than about hell and heaven combined.  But, too often, we overlook or misunderstand His profound teaching in Matthew 6.  Jesus offers us life changing investment advice, urging us to store up treasures in heaven where they will await us and last forever.  We can't take it with us, but we can send it on ahead.  Join us over two months as we move from Bible exposition to everyday life and discover how joyful giving brings God glory.  Join us Wednesday, 2/19, after Café, for discussion.

  • August 2019

    The Bible stands at the heart of the Christian faith.  But, why should we trust the Bible?  Our August book selection is Why Should We Trust The Bible?  It is the third in the series by Greg Gilbert and will, hopefully, help us articulate why we should trust scripture when it comes to understanding who God is, who we are, and how we are supposed to live.  Join us Saturday, 9/7, at 8:30 for breakfast and discussion.

  • June 2019

    Who is Jesus? is the second book in our 3 book series by Greg Gilbert.  Intended as a succinct introduction to Jesus' life, words, and enduring significance, this offers a compelling portrait of Jesus Christ. It encourages readers to carefully consider His history-shaping life and extraordinary teachings.  Join us on Saturday, 6/29, at 8:30 am for breakfast followed by discussion led by Pastor Chris.

  • May 2019

    This month we are reading the first book in our 3 book series - What is the Gospel? by Greg Gilbert.  Beginning with Paul's systematic presentation of the Gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the structure of the Gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. Join us on Saturday, 6/1, at 8:30 am for breakfast followed by the book discussion led by David Cawood. 

  • April 2019

    Continuing with the topic of holiness, we will learn about how to pursue it.  Our book for April is The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness by Kevin DeYoung.  We will meet Saturday, 5/4, at 8:30 am for breakfast and discussion.

  • march 2019

    The Holiness of God by R. C. Sproul is a classic that every Christian should read.  We will meet Saturday, 3/30, at 8:30 am for breakfast and book discussion led by Cory Dryden.

  • February 2019

    To continue with our big picture study of the Book of Moses, we will be reading The Whole Story of The Bible in 16 Verses by Chris Bruno.  We will meet Saturday, 2/23, at 8:30 am for breakfast and book discussion led by Pastor Chris.
