There’s Still Time – Be Part of a Weekly Bible Study!

Bible Studies for men and women began on February 1st, and here is a list of the studies happening over the next month:

  • Men’s Bible Study: Unfolded. Facilitated by Wayne Moody will be in Room A-121. In this DVD-driven study, Eric Geiger lays out God’s powerful story of redemption. Join these men as we explore the story of a God who loves us, wants to be known by us, and ultimately invites us into His story of grace and redemption. Though there are many heroes in the Old and New Testaments, you’ll discover the one true Hero of our faith: Jesus Christ. [Book: $13]
  • Women’s Bible Study: Uninvited. Facilitated by Amy Matthis for women of all ages, this book study will meet in in Room A-113. In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst helps women to explore the roots of rejection; the view we believe as a result; and the truth about who God is, who we are, and what it looks like to live loved. [Book: $10 | Study Guide: $13]
  • Women’s Bible Study: The Power of a Praying Wife. Facilitated by Corrie Maxwell, this book study for for wives of all ages will be in Room E-111 (located in the Preschool Place). This study will joyfully inspire you to develop a deeper relationship with your husband by utilizing the amazing power of prayer. This uplifting resource is packed with practical advice on praying for specific areas of your husband’s life, including his: (a) decision-making, (b) role as a father and as a leader, (c) fears, (d) spiritual strength, (e) faith and (f) future. If you desire a closer relationship with your spouse, you will appreciate the life illustrations, encouraging Bible verses, and the assurances of God’s promises and power for your marriage.

On Tuesdays, we have the following PRECEPT study led by Kay Griffin:

  • Threatened with death, Daniel stuck to his guns and refused to adopt a pagan lifestyle. His worldview had God at the center and he lived it out even under extreme pressure to change. This eight week study (In & Out version) will help you learn to adopt a biblical worldview and adhere to it even when it’s not ‘normal’ to live for God and walk in His ways. This study is open to men and women and will happen on Tuesdays in Room A-113 in two sessions to accommodate different schedules (9:30a morning | 5:30p evening). Book is $14 and leader is Kay Griffin.
