Nehemiah Series Resources

Welcome!

Welcome to Nehemiah: Rise and Rebuild!
The Old Testament book of Nehemiah is a story about God's faithfulness and mercy to bring his people, Israel, home. Two leaders, Ezra and Nehemiah, are called to join God in rebuilding a holy people—a covenant community that remembers who they are and whose they are, as well as their vocation to be a light to the nations. We are called to join God's work of building for the kingdom (we don't build the kingdom; we build "for" it), assuming a posture of openness to God's transformational work of building us into a kingdom people for his glory and the sake of the world.

How might we join the Lord in his work to rebuild and restore our cities, the region, our neighborhoods, the world, and our church, homes, and relationships? You are invited to engage the weekly Scriptures, the questions and the Rise and Rebuild practices. Choose as much or as little that fits into your week, but do make time! Friends, we have the agency to put ourselves in a place and posture where God’s Spirit has space to transform and conform us into the likeness of Jesus, and to become followers of Jesus’ way. Our prayer is that these resources would help you create a space where God’s Spirit is invited and free to transform your heart and mind.
