A new 12-session online study on the books of Joshua and Judges is beginning on April 8th! Joshua tells the story the Israel invasion of Canaan – the Promised Land – following forty years of wandering in the wilderness and the death of Moses. Judges recounts the years of guerilla war and civil war following the death of Joshua, prior to Israel’s monarchy. In the course of the study, we will also look at the origin of these books and discuss how modern-day Christians might possibly find them meaningful.

A new video and handout will be available on Northgate’s website each week prior to the discussion sessions (Monday evenings @ 6:30pm). To join the ZOOM discussion, or if you have additional questions, please contact send an email to [email protected] or call the church office at 972/252-8519. Sign-up sheets are also available in the Narthex.
