Monday Night Women’s Bible Study 

Renew Your Mind in Truth 101
6:30 PM, August 18 thru November 24

Neil Anderson has revised and expanded Victory Over the Darkness for a new generation of readers, outlining practical and more productive paths to Christian growth based on Christ's promise; You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. Victory Over the Darkness emphasizes the importance of believing and internalizing the cardinal truths of Scripture as a base from which to renew the mind and fend off Satan's relentless attempt to convince us that we are less than Christ empowers us to be.          


Wednesday Morning Women’s Bible Study

Gracetoration

Do you ever feel your life is missing true REST?  Gracetoration is a unique bible study that offers grace (that God alone provides) for the rest of your life!  Come allow God’s Word full of grace to pour over your head like water from a faucet.  With great visuals and a common theme of us as His sheep and Him as our Shepherd, enjoy this study with no homework except to pass on His grace each week from what you learn in class.


Thursday Morning Women’s Bible Studies
9:00 to 11:00 AM, September 4 thru December 4

Covenant: God’s Enduring Promises
This course could actually be titled, Christianity 101.  In studying this topic together, we will see how the Word of God is tied to covenant and how everything God does is based on covenant.  Believing what God says about it will transform your life.  You will keep promises and your relationships will last a lifetime.  We will discover the benefits and responsibilities of covenant.  We will discover together, how the old covenant points to the promises of the new covenant.  This class consists of group discussion followed by a video segment of teaching.  This study comes with the discipline of daily homework.  By spending 20 minutes a day on lesson questions, you will develop the habit of discovering Truth from God’s Word for yourself.

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
An invitation for every woman who feels she isn't godly enough...isn't loving enough...isn't doing enough. The life of a woman today isn't really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lord's feet...but the daily demands of a busy world just won't leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve him...yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy.  Then comes Jesus, right into the midst of your busy Mary/Martha life-and he extends the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters of Bethany. Tenderly he invites you to choose "the better part"-a joyful life of "living-room" intimacy with him that flows naturally into "kitchen service" for him.  How can you make that choice? With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story and its creative, practical strategies, Joanna shows how all of us -Marys and Marthas alike- can draw closer to our Lord, deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.

Prayer and Support Group for Foster Moms
Using The Power of a Praying Parent as a guide, we will pray and support each other through the trials, heartaches, and blessings of being a foster parent.  As we draw closer to God and each other, we will discuss workbook questions, ideas, and suggestions that will help direct us in praying effectively for children.
