Two New Studies!

Malachi -
Revering the Lord, Standing in Awe of His Name

Have you ever questioned God’s love for you? If so, what caused you to doubt the sincerity or genuineness of His love? And what happened? What happens in or to a relationship when love is doubted? Malachi is the final book in the Old Testament. There were 400 years of silence from God between Malachi and the Gospels. What does He say through Malachi, and why? What does He want His people to think about? To remember? God tells us that He is keeping a book of remembrance for those who fear Him and esteem His name. Malachi will prepare you for the day when the Lord opens the windows of heaven and pours out His blessing.

EVENINGS:

Matthew 14-28

Join us for an in-depth study of the incredible reign and rule of God as seen through the eyes of the Apostle Matthew. Using an inductive study method from Women of the Word, How to Study the Bible with Both our Hearts and our Minds by Jen Wilkin, we will uncover truths about the ministry and person of Jesus Christ. This study builds on 18 months' prior study of Matthew Chapters 1-19 and will focus on Chapters 20-25 this Winter/Spring 2019. Familiarity with Jen Wilkin's book will be very helpful. Please register early to receive a copy of the book to read prior to the first class's introduction session.

Seated with Christ

Raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:6).We are treasured by Jesus and given a place at with Him. Heather Holleman shares what this means for us in her book entitled Seated with Christ. She leads us into Ephesians chapter two and other Bible passages where we will discover truths from God’s word about our security in Christ.
The knowledge that we are already seated with Christ in heaven should encourage us to seek Him and all that God has for us to do here while we wait for the glorious day when we will see Jesus face to face.

MORNINGS:

1 Peter - How to Stand Firm When Tested

Rome burned. Nero fiddled. Christians perished. Why this suffering? Where was their God? How could Christianity survive the flames that tried their faith? First Peter had the answer for then … and for today. “There is hardly any portion in the Word of God which has been more eagerly read than this Epistle … these words have been lovingly pondered and treasured, as a priceless heritage.” Eagerly read! Pondered! Treasured! What is the message of 1 Peter that has entwined itself around the hearts of hundreds of generations? What has made it a book of living hope to men and women of all nations, tongues, and ages? To search out the answer to these questions will be our goal; then, maybe the message of 1 Peter will become a priceless heritage to us also. Learn what Peter says to believers enduring tribulations.

The Significant Woman

You will be encouraged and supported by other women as you search the Scriptures together and pray for one another.

The Word of the Lord – Seeing Jesus in the Prophets

Prophets in the Old Testament were men who spoke for God. Over 100 times in the historical and prophetical books of the Old Testament we read that, "the word of the Lord came" to a prophet. This inductive Bible study by Nancy Guthrie dives into the challenging prophetical books of Isaiah through Malachi with the aim of understanding not only what God had to say to his people through these prophets in their own day, but also what he has to say to his people today. Readers discover that we struggle with the same sins, we’re subject to the same judgment, and we await the same Savior.

Raising Responsive Children – A Bible Study for Moms

Raising Responsive Children is written for all moms whose kids are any age. We will study what it means to take our parenting cues from God, who daily raises His children (that’s us!) by His love, His grace, His mercy, and His kind, yet firm, guiding hand. Throughout the twelve lessons in Raising Responsive Children (taught over two semesters), we'll examine our relationship with Him and compare it to His relationship with His Son; we'll make the connection between His precepts and parameters for us and how they impact our own parental responsibilities; and finally, we'll compare and contrast our parenting techniques with His, and where necessary, realign ours to meet His standard. Parenting will become a great adventure that we’ll share with the Author of the family unit!

How People Change

What’s happening in your life? Maybe it’s self-indulgent temptation. Or being tried by the mundane (cut off in traffic) or the severe (sickness, sorrow, or death). The world says things like “you don’t have what it takes” or “you’d better look out for yourself.” Have you bought into that lie? What if you are sinned against? Suffer abuse? Watch a loved one suffer? The situations of your life can get pretty hot. How are you responding? Prickly and defensive or loving, fruitful and kind?
Everyone knows we should change, but how does that happen? Is it a matter of knowing more? Trying harder? Pretending? God has “given us everything we need for life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3), but how does it happen? How People Change utilizes DVD instruction by Paul Tripp and Timothy Lane, combined with live classroom instruction and discussion. We will explore how gospel change works in the midst of the “heat” of life to change our heart in relationship with Jesus Christ, bearing the fruit of the Spirit. How People Change shows how the gospel relates to you as a Christian.
Is the gospel adequate for the sinful habits that control you? The self-control you lack? The risks you are unwilling to take? The love you do not feel? For the Christian, the answer must be yes! Let it be your answer every single day.
