Fall Women's Bible Studies
We're offering four new Bible studies for our women this fall. Three will begin on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at the church, while the fourth is an online study beginning Monday, October 19th.
Registration is required in order to help us plan for physical distancing and to keep within the current allowed capacities.
To sign up, call (519-845-3386) or email the church office.
Isaiah: Be Comforted (Morning)
Isaiah was God’s chosen prophet in a time of political unrest. He pleaded with the Israelites to turn from their sin and return to God in humble repentance so their nation could receive deliverance and restoration—a message we still need to hear today.
For anyone who thinks that comfort is equivalent to pity and that it is only priceless to those who need an emotional crutch, author Warren Wiersbe applies the words of the prophet Isaiah to prove that God's comfort is no such thing. The word comfort actually translates "to repent" in Hebrew; our English translation, however, adds another dimension to the word since it originated from two Latin words meaning "with strength." You’ll find that it is God’s comfort that brings you the peace, hope, and strength to weather life’s storms.
With definitions and insights like this, Warren Wiersbe continues to enliven the Scriptures as he weaves the words of Isaiah with historical explanations and thought-provoking questions for every chapter. The cost of the study guide is $10.
Anna will be leading this study from September 15 to December 8 on Tuesday mornings from 9:15-11:00.
Citizens and Strangers (Morning)
The kingdom of God started long ago, and it continues today, and it will continue tomorrow and on into the future. Though we can’t see it in full, we are caught up in the story. Today, we live as both citizens and strangers, hoping and praying for the kingdom to come. We live in the “already but not yet,” prisoners of hope in this shadow kingdom, all while knowing it is not our true home. Something better is coming. God’s perfect kingdom is coming. This study is based on a sermon series by Matt Chandler and includes watching a video when you meet as a group.
There is no cost for materials and Emily will be leading this group, which will run from September 15 to December 1 on Tuesday mornings from 9:15-11:00.
The Bible in 90 Days (Evening)
Different from our usual Bible studies, the Bible in 90 Days is a group-oriented Bible reading curriculum. Reading the entire Bible in 90 days provides a sweeping panoramic view of Biblical history, helping to more readily remember and connect key historical events from Genesis to Israel’s history, to the Prophets, to the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life and through Revelation. The Bible is powerful, life-changing, and eternal. Nothing is more effective at renewing the mind than the Word of God.
There is a daily time commitment involved in this group as you will be required to read the assigned chapters of the Bible, which will take approx. 30-60 minutes each day to keep up with the plan, but there is no other homework.
The group will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 at the church to discuss the week’s reading, with Joy leading the group from September 15 to December 15.
You may use your own Bible or purchase the NIV Bible in 90 Days from the church office for $15.
Ecclesiastes: Nothing New Under the Sun (Online, Evening)
Ecclesiastes presents the student of Scripture with a view of life “under the sun” that is thought-provoking and challenging. The wisdom of this book is the Preacher’s reminder to the reader to fear God as He is the only One we can trust in a fallen and confusing world. This book speaks boldly to our world and its realities today, and our need to trust God even when we don’t understand the circumstances around us.
This 7-week online study will start after Thanksgiving and run weekly from Monday, October 19 to Monday, November 30. We will meet online from 7:00-8:30 p.m. using Zoom, with Beth Ann leading.
ALL STUDIES REQUIRE REGISTRATION. Call (519-845-3386) or email the church office to sign up.
