Classes

Date: Sundays
Time: 9:00 am
Location: E-104

Description: This class is for women of all ages and stages of life with a hunger for the Word of God. First Loves takes its name from Revelation Chapter 2 as a charge to always remember Jesus as our first love. This Winter beginning January 20, we will participate in the SHAPE class, led by Theresa Maxin. Then beginning March 10, we will dive into The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi by Kathie Lee Gifford and Rabbi Jason Sobel. In this video study we will go beyond the typical Sunday School approach to Bible study and dig into the original languages and deeper meanings of Scripture while also exploring ancient landmarks and historical sites.

Requirements: Bible

Childcare is available.

Date: Wednesday nights
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: L-43

Description: Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever over ow from your relationship with Jesus. Just ask Job, who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this study, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God’s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.

Date: Wednesday nights
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: E-104

Description: All moms are invited to join us as we study the book of James with Francis Chan. True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your- hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. Through 12 video sessions, we will work through this fun, diverse and thought provoking book verse-by-verse, and be challenged to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.

Requirements: Bible

Childcare is available.

Date: Wednesday mornings
Time: 9:15 am-11:30 am
Location: L-42

Description: Join women of all ages as we pray and grow in knowledge and relationship with the Lord, His Word and one another. January 23–March 6: In this 7-session Steadfast Love Bible study, Lauren Chandler uses Psalm 107 to show us how to face both storms and deserts with courage and trust in Jesus, discovering how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. March 13–May 15: Our spring study focuses on 1st Peter: A Living Hope in Christ. Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. Author Jen Wilkin will share the key themes of humility, encouragement, and our identity in Christ. We will discover for ourselves how to mature in our walk with Christ and thrive as His disciples.
