“They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly (paragraph by paragraph), and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading.” (Nehemiah 8:8). After living for decades in exile, the nation of Israel return to find a city and society wrecked and in upheaval. The Lord initiated a return to the Promised Land, a renewal of faith and belief, and the rebuilding of a people and city. America is in desperate need to return to the Promises, a renewal of faith and belief, and a rebuilding of our spiritual foundations. Join us in this 13-week study through Ezra and Nehemiah, as we prayerfully and intentionally return to the Lord, asking Him to renew and rebuild our foundations.

The scriptures say in Mathew 1:21 that Jesus came to save us from our sin. That is Good News for all.
