Like our series through Romans, Pastor Steve taught this series in the book of James differently than he has other books in the past! For the Romans series, Pastor Steve worked closely with a group of men and assigned each one a chapter to study and research. This time around he assigned sections from the book of James to 11 women to study and research so he could gain insights from them into new ways of understanding and presenting this book to you!

Here is a basic outline for this teaching sequence:

  • Chapter 1:1-8 - The Testing of Faith
  • Chapter 1:9-18 - Enduring Faith
  • Chapter 1:19-27 - Practicing Faith
  • Chapter 2: 1-13 - Genuine Faith
  • Chapter 2:14-26 - Faith at Work
  • Chapter 3:1-12 - Words of Faith
  • Chapter 3:13-18 - Faith Applied
  • Chapter 4:1-10 - Humility of Faith
  • Chapters 4:11-5:6 - Rewards of Faith
  • Chapter 5:7-12 - Faith is Patient
  • Chapter 5:13-20 - Prayer of Faith
