Fall 2016 Bible Studies

Women’s Fall Bible Studies

Sign up starting Sunday, August 21 for Friday morning or Wednesday evening studies

Friday Mornings:

Peter: A Living Hope in Christ a 9 session DVD Bible Study by Jen Wilkin. Fridays at 9:30am in the Chapel. Childcare. Books $13. Study starts September 9. Signups begin August 21 in the Worship Center.

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. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ. Participants are challenged to read the book of 1 Peter in its entirety each week.

Fall 2016 bible studies

Wednesday Evenings:

Our Fall Study for Wednesday Evenings will be – Let.It.Go – a 6 week video study by Karen Ehman. (We did this study during summer of 2016 so if you need to make up any sessions, please feel free to come). Led by Linda Clements and members of the Women’s Ministry Team, this study meets on Wednesdays at 6pm in Room 202. Childcare will be available. Workbook/book combo is $20.

Women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to where they’re going on time. But sometimes our strength of being conscientious can morph into the weakness of being a slight—or all out—control freak! This humorous, yet spiritually practical book will help you learn how to control what you should, trust God with what you can’t, and more importantly, decide which one is which! Join Karen Ehman, a recovering control freak, as she enables you to:

• Draw the line between mothering and micromanaging
• Influence your husband instead of manipulating him
• Take control of your schedule yet welcome interruptions from God
• Learn to control your emotions when you can’t control the circumstances
• Stop pursuing the appearance of perfection and start pursuing the person of God
