Sunday Morning

Beauty out of Ashes
Led By: Amy Moran
10-11am

Single Women’s Bible Study
Current Study: Missing Pieces
By: Jennifer Rothschild
Begins: January 14
Led By: Lori Lewis
10-11am
Room 304 (will move to room 202 on January 28)

This is an ongoing, Sunday morning, single women’s Bible study. Open to women in all ages and stages of life.  Throughout the year, different topics and studies are covered.

Starting January 7, we will be going through the “Missing Pieces” study, where we will be discussing the questions of: Does God care? Is He fair? Is He even there? Although you may know all the right answers, they don't always feel right. We will explore these and other questions in this realistic look at the messy, mysterious uncertainties of faith. God's ways don't always make sense, but He is trustworthy. Come close to Him. Trust Him more than your feelings. God will reveal Himself and fill in your missing pieces.

Cost: Book orders have been placed.  Registration is still open, but you are responsible for purchasing your own materials.

Gideon
By Priscilla Shirer
Led by: Debbie Henninger
Begins: Jan 21
6-8pm

Do you feel overwhelmed? Inexperienced? Intimidated?  Insufficient? Too old? Too young? Too invisible? Too afraid?

Gideon’s story involves far more than a wet fleece and a battle won with 300 soldiers. His epic victory actually tells of one man’s struggle with his own weakness – and the One True God who transformed it into triumph.

So if you’ve ever struggled with insecurity or had trouble accepting your limitations, this study will hellp you see how God can use your weakness to unlock His strength. Yes, Gideon can attest – weakness is a gift. Join this Bible study that will open your eyes to a brand new perspective on yourself, your God, and Gideon.

If you’ve ever felt inadequate, threatened, or pushed into situations that seemed overpowering, this is the study for you!  Just as it was tough being a woman in Esther’s day, it’s tough today.

Discerning the Voice of God
By: Priscilla Shirer
Led By: Pam Eckart
Begins Jan 23
Room 103
7 week study
7-9pm 

The Father so passionately loves you that He sent Jesus to die in your place. He desires a personal relationship in which he speaks directly to you. Have you spent most of your Christina life leaning on these beliefs without really experiencing them? Have you been in the presence of passionate believers who shared stirring encounters with God’s voice while your own soul overflowed with confusion? How did these saints know God was speaking? 

Through this study, we will discover the root to clear and daily communication with God is humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.

Cost: Book orders have been placed.  Registration is still open, but you are responsible for purchasing your own materials.
