Men’s and Women’s Bible Study
So that we do not lose the opportunity to encourage one another to grow as disciples of Jesus, we are using September and October for men’s and women’s classes in support of our initiative around Training to Follow Jesus.
Men’s and women’s classes will be held on alternating Sundays, which we hope will allow more parents to attend. These classes are intended to encourage our spiritual development in ways that we don’t get a chance to normally. Thanks to all who participated in the recent survey to help us figure out the best days and times for the classes.
In CORE for Men: Transformed, we challenge what we thought defined manhood, and we replace the messages of our tribes with what God says in his Word is true about who we are. But we can’t stop there—transformation doesn’t happen until we get real with our brotherhood. Learn to trust one another with issues you’ve been struggling with. Isolation is suffocating, but when we get honest about the idols we are pursuing, we can change the trajectory of our life. And when we push for the elite level in life, it’s essential to stop and reload every once in a while, to get grounded into what matters and prepared for what’s next.
Materials for the class will be provided by the church. Please let us know that you plan to attend, so we can order the proper amount, by clicking the RSVP button.
Men’s classes will follow the book and materials from Transformed: Embracing Our True Identity and Purpose and will meet on the following dates:
- Sept. 12 – Transformation
- Sept. 26 – Brotherhood
- Oct. 17 – Choices
- Oct. 31 – Reload
Gideon: Your weakness. God’s strength. is a 7 session women’s Bible study by Priscilla Shirer. When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or the fleece he laid out under the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that—bigger than any one man and his mark on Israel’s history. Like everything else in the Bible, this is a story about God and His people. His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness—even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us—our lives, our doubts, our struggles, and our possibilities as believers. From a state of fear, weakness, and insecurity, Gideon emerged as Israel’s hero, filled with God’s presence and His passion for deliverance. This study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. In what ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, see them as the gifts that they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.
The book for the class will be provided by the church. Please let us know that you plan to attend, so we can order the proper number by clicking the RSVP button.
