NEW SERIES FOR THE FALL

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY :: Mondays @ 7pm

For women of all ages and stages in life, please join us on Mondays @ 7pm in the Fellowship Room.  Beginning Monday, September 23rd we will begin the Fall season with a new Bible Study in JOB. We hope to see you there!
 
 
Bible Study Info :: JOB by Lisa Harper
In this 7-session study, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God’s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.
 
The Job Bible Study Book features personal study segments to complete between the seven weeks of group sessions and Leader helps to guide questions and discussions within small groups.
 

WOMEN IN THE W.O.R.D. :: Thursdays @ 9:15am

This Fall we have 4 different Bible Studies to choose from. We will confirm the details as we get closer to the kick off date in September.
 
Our regular program of meeting on Thursdays at 9:15am in the Fellowship Room on the lower level will begin again in September 12th and carry on until June. Women of all ages and stages in life are welcome!
 
 
A few details about the 4 studies for Fall 2019:
1-2 Thessalonians remind God’s people of the salvation he has secured for those he has called. When King Jesus returns, he will deliver his people and bring justice to the earth.
 
Part of the Knowing the Bible series, 1-2 Thessalonians is a 12-week study by Matt Smethurst that place the books in context of God’s larger story. The study provides an overview of the text before digging into it with a series of questions for reflection or discussion.
10 New Testament Characters
A throwaway woman who is redeemed by Christ. A blind beggar who is given sight. A doubting disciple who discovers faith. A jailer who is freed from internal prisons.
 
These are some of the ordinary people – some never even mentioned by name – who were touched by Jesus. Through their stories you will meet the Saviour as well.
In Isaiah: A 12-Week Study Pastor Drew Hunter helps readers understand and apply the challenging words of the prophet Isaiah in this 12-week study. Isaiah’s prophecy, which alternates between promises of judgment and restoration, reminds God’s people of the magnitude of humanity’s sin, the judgment that we all deserve, and how God displays his glory by saving sinners.
 
Throughout the study, Hunter continually shows how Isaiah’s promise of cosmic renewal ultimately anticipates the work of Jesus Christ, the servant-king whose death would result in new life for all who trust in him.

Anything ~ The prayer that unlocked my God and my soul. Safe. Comfortable. Happy.

Words we all love. Feelings we want. Even crave. We may love God, but being that he’s invisible, words like comfortable seem to feel better faster.

We are all chasing something. Our hearts were made to run hard and fast after things that move us. But as a generation we are all beginning to stir and wake up, identifying that these words don’t satisfy for long, especially when compared to God. If God is real, and we are going to live with Him forever, shouldn’t He be everything?

Caught in this familiar haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie Allen and her husband Zac prayed a courageous prayer of abandonment that took them on an adventure God had written for them.

“God, we will do anything. Anything,

Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is…

Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous.

If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.

JUST FOR MOMS! :: Saturdays @ 8am

This Fall we have a special Saturday morning Bible Study just for moms.

Bible Study Info :: Says Who?
Says Who? is designed to help moms uncover the lies that the world deceives them with. In this curriculum, you will discover what God has to say about being a woman, a mom, and a wife. His plan is to bring you freedom! Learn how to live the life of peace God has for you by exchanging the world’s lies for his truth.  

PARENT / CHILD :: Tuesdays @ 10am

PARENTS & TOTS (0 to 4 years old)
Returns this Fall after a Summer Hiatus!
 
Parents, grandparents and/or caregivers can bring their preschool children (age 0-4 years) to meet up and take part in Christian focused activities through play, creative arts, songs, biblical story time and discussion about God.

WOMEN’S SMALL GROUPS

Another way you can get connected is through small groups specifically for women at different ages and stages of life. Groups centered around growing in our faith as women through the study of God’s Word, and prayer. And pursuing authentic community as we care and love each other and enjoy a time of fellowship and connection, usually around food.
