Descriptions of Women’s Bible Studies beginning in 2013:
There will be three studies offered in Spring 2013:
Ruth: Loss, Love & Legacy by Kelly Minter is a women’s Bible study of Ruth’s journey of unbearable loss, redeeming love, and divine legacy. The second in the Living Room Series, this 6-week study delves into the virtuous character of Ruth, her unique relationship with her mother-in-law Naomi, and her blossoming love with Boaz. If you’ve ever felt devastated, struggled as a stranger, longed to be loved, or wept along the way, you’ll find a loyal sister in Ruth. This study includes stories, recipes, a leader guide, interactive Web site extras, and free bonus videos.
Precept Upon Precept Inductive Study Kinsman Redeemer
(Ruth) Don’t Despair. There’s Hope. You Have a Kinsman Redeemer! (3 lessons x2= 6 weeks)
If you were a slave, who would buy your freedom? If you had an enemy, who would come to your defense? In the Old Testament, this buyer-defender known as a “kinsman – redeemer” was usually a close relative. If you’re a believer, you already have one — Jesus Christ! This rich study shows how Jesus both bought us (redeemer) and advocates (defends) for us, offering us an opportunity to rebuild our broken lives
Also on Wednesday evenings –
Stepping Up: A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent by Beth Moore
Traveling pilgrims sang these psalms both on the way to the great festivals of the LORD and as key elements of the worship at those festivals. Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope, and joy, these 15 psalms model how we can voice our own petitions and praises to our God, who is always available and ready to hear us.
Explore the major feasts of Israel and journey with Beth through this 7-session study. Themes of unity, joy, gratitude, redemption, repentance, the power of blessings, facing ridicule, and more are explored in detail. Modern-day believers in Jesus Christ can learn much from these treasured Psalms in their journey toward greater intimacy with God.
