2015 Winter/Spring Bible Studies

Breathe by Priscilla Shrirer

As a culture we are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God as Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life as you experience God in this 5 week study. We will follow up this study with Stronger - Finding Hope in Fragile Places.

Stronger – Finding Hope in Fragile Places by Angela Thomas

Today, because of Christ, you can live stronger in the midst of every struggle you face. As we have received Christ Jesus, we are now called to walk in a manner worthy of Him. Strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in so great an inheritance. Through biblical teaching and real life application, this study will guide women so they live confident, transformed, Christ-radiating lives marked by His strength. (7 sessions)

Hebrews – The Nearness of King Jesus by Lisa Harper

Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also so relevant for us today, reminding us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Join Lisa as she journeys through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Hebrews helps women make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme, but He is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end. This is a 7 session study that will follow up with Breathe - by Priscilla Shirer

Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World – by Melissa Spoelstra

 

In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. Jeremiah offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. We will follow up this study with Breathe - by Priscilla Shirer

Bible Study & Fellowship for Military Women

For Women Connected to the Military –Wives, Female Warriors, Veterans

As women connected to the military, we are faced with deployments, frequent moves, loneliness, raising our children often by ourselves due to spouse’s absence, wartime threats and so many other circumstances unique to our families.  We need to know that God cares and that He is with us both in our trials and triumphs. We need to know that we are not alone! 

Our WEDNESDAY morning Bible study offers us a chance to connect in a small group setting and share the burdens and blessings of our military affliations. We will draw on the wisdom of God's word, which is life to those who believe, and we will take the opportunity to care for one another as a community of military women.

Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy - by Beth Moore

This in-depth, faith-building study of prophecy teaches women how to live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials. Together women will explore the thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Jesus Christ.

A Woman's Heart: God's Dwelling Place - by Beth Moore

Perhaps no Old Testament event so dramatically illustrates God's persistent desire to relate to His children as the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness. Through the tabernacle God initiated a deeper relationship with His Chosen People by bringing reconciliation and revealing His glory. And certainly, no Old Testament event so richly prefigures the coming of the true Tabernacle, Jesus Christ. You will be challenged to prepare your heart, like the holy of holies, to become a home for His love and glory — a dwelling place for the Most High God.

God's Plan - Our Purpose by Sandra Dowling Housley

We will investigate God’s Word together to discover God’s plan and His purpose for us.  Meetings will involve doing the lesson at home and coming prepared to listen and discuss our discoveries together.
