Women's Bible Studies
Women’s Fall Bible Studies will be starting up the week of October 5. Since we can’t foresee what the fall will hold, all of the studies will be offered in a Zoom format. If in-person classes become available, leaders will make contact based on the interest expressed when you sign up. Classes will be offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, so hopefully, there's a study that will fit your schedule! Here is a preview of what will be offered. We hope you can make connections together as you study God’s word!
Sign ups are open now!
Book of Acts, picking back up in chapter 16
Led by Karen Harden on Tuesdays at 9:30 AM and 6:00 PM on Zoom
Curriculum: Book of Acts, NIV
This is an in depth look at the book of Acts, resuming in chapter 16. A deep study into the culture and events that took place at Pentecost and the birth of the church across the world.
Seated With Christ, by Heather Holleman
Led by Billie Malone and Andrea Giesbrect, Tuesdays at 9:30 AM
Curriculum: Topical Study, Seated with Christ: Living Freely in a Culture of Comparison, by Heather Holleman
You don’t have to live enslaved to pride and despair, or stay trapped in the endless pursuit of perfection. Your journey to freedom starts with taking your seat. Many of us live in a prison of self-absorption. Shackled with pride and despair, we compare ourselves to others constantly in our frantic, unending pursuit of perfection.
Scripture says that Godʼs beloved are seated with Christ in the heavens (Eph. 246), treasured by Him, and given a place at His table. What does this mean for us? It means we walk out on the fight for acceptance. We quit measuring ourselves to others. We leap free from cycles of shame. Securely-seated people can ask themselves hard questions about their lives; they can deal with sin, grieve their losses, and move forward in hope. From a position of security and self-forgetfulness, they can joyfully do the good works prepared for them uniquely. They can even celebrate the successes of others. It is a deeply personal, liberating look at a glorious truth: that we have a place at Godʼs eternal table.
Need Peace, Joy & Hope in a Troubled World? Ask Jesus!
Led by Connie Saylor and Gina Cushing on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM on Zoom
Turning Troubled Times into Times of Joy, Peace and Purpose in Jesus.
Curriculum: Topical Bible study, no curriculum
We live in crazy times, and life can sometimes be chaotic and overwhelming anyway. Our study this year will encourage you to get into the Word to find peace when life seems so loud and chaotic, to find joy when sadness threatens to take over, and to look for how GOD is doing great things and providing new opportunities to share His love in the midst of these anxieties and trials. And what a privilege it is to take part in GOD'S purpose and plan in our families and community! He reveals the "how to" aspect of facing these situations as we step into His presence, and like Mary, sit at Jesus' feet intently listening as He teaches His promises and truth in His Word. We'll be studying in both the Old Testament and New to see how GOD uses difficult times to bring about His great purpose and show His faithful and unending love. Also we'll be reading how Jesus gives us everything we need to be equip us for our part in His plan.
1 Peter, by Jen Wilken
Led by Megan Parker on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM on Zoom
Curriculum: 1 Peter - A Living Hope in Christ, by Jen Wilke
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers' true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. A digital download of the teaching will be available to watch on your own if classes are held virtually.
James: Living a Life of Genuine Faith, by Jen Wilken
Led by Val Otheim on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM on Zoom
Curriculum: James: Living a Life of Genuine Faith, by Jen Wilken (available at no cost)
The Book of James has been called “the Proverbs of the New Testament.” Jen Wilkin's verse by verse study will encourage us to live lives of genuine faith as we grow in understanding and following the teachings of Christ. Themes of the Book of James include persevering under trial, perspective on riches and poverty, growth in wisdom, understanding the danger of the tongue, practice of prayer, and the relationship between faith and works.
Four Views of the End Times, by Timothy Paul Jones
Led by Noreen Sell on Thursdays at 6:30 PM on Zoom
Curriculum: Four Views of the End Times, by Timothy Paul Jones
Jesus’ disciples asked Him, “What will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3) This is an enduring question, that Christians have answered in different ways. As we walk through the book of Revelation we will learn about viewpoints on the end times, but focus primarily on Jesus, His return, and how we can be ready. As you wait for class to start, you can prepare by reading through the book of Revelation now.
