September 17th - December 10th
This Fall the Women’s Ministry team is rolling out a new program that will replace the Fall morning and evening Bible Studies. After much conversation and prayer, we’ve decided to roll out a new idea called Triads to encourage women in the development of deeper friendships and discipleship relationships.
What is a Triad? A Triad is a group of three women that are paired together for a set amount of time to study a book together, to pray for one another, and to develop life-on-life discipleship relationships. If you are interested in the Triads program, please sign up online or in our bulletin tear-off by August 12th.
Sometimes we ask What is God’s will for my life? When we should really be asking Who should I be?
The Bible has an answer: Be like the very image of God.
By exploring ten characteristics of who God is—holy, loving, just, good, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise—this book helps us understand who God intends for us to be. Through Christ, the perfect reflection of the image of God, we will discover how God’s own attributes impact how we live, leading to freedom and purpose as we follow his will and are conformed to his image.
You don’t have anything to prove.
Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don't measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don’t have to be.
In this 8-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don't have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Discover how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the living water.
What does the Bible really say about women?
Is God somewhat sexist?
Is there a way to see what God says in this area not only as true, but also as beautiful?
In this warm, conversational, sympathetic book, Kathleen Nielson asks the hard questions on this most emotive subject, showing how truth can not just be believed, but enjoyed. Women of all backgrounds, views, and ages will want to read this crucial book.
“I’M TOO BUSY!”
We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.
That’s why award-winning author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.
Highly practical and super short, Crazy Busy will help you put an end to “busyness as usual.”
We want to be right in the eyes of the law of our land, of those we respect, of our loved ones, of those we work with. We strive to gain and then keep this right standing. But there is another, far better and more important righteousness.
A righteousness which changes and liberates every aspect of our lives, and yet which none of us can earn or maintain ourselves.
It is a righteousness from God.
Romans 1-7 is all about that righteousness. It shows us why we don t have it, why we need it, and how we can receive it. It thrills us that the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
These seven studies will help you to understand one of the most-read, most written-about parts of the Bible. And, as they enable you to you unwrap God s precious gift of right standing with him, they ll transform your hearts, lives, identities and perspectives.
“No Worries?” We lob the phrase at others, but lie awake at night ourselves. Our health, the economy, our kids, our parents, our future. We struggle to pull our thoughts away from our worries, fears, and frustrations.
When we get stuck, it's not exactly easy to fixate on “whatever is true, noble, right and pure.” We are profoundly aware that our worries have negative consequences for our bodies, minds, and relationships. But like most real people with real problems, our thoughts keep swirling around the same old issues.
Mindscape builds a practical action plan for changing your mental landscape—and your life—based on Paul’s rich exhortation in Philippians 4:8. Author Tim Witmer draws from thirty years of experience in helping worried people apply Scripture to their lives to present a clear, biblical, and deeply pastoral guide to replacing worry with a new way of thinking.
Mindscape is not a self-help book or an academic tome on behavioral theory. It is a real-world guide to the transformation that Jesus works in us as we go to him in faith and ask for his power to change, to listen, and to think differently.
