web-button-divinedesignDivine Design

A mentoring class for young wives and mothers taught by older women, based on Titus 2:4.  Divine Design is a community of women who are encouraged to love their husbands and children, to be pure and godly, so that the Word of God will not be dishonored.  Practical lessons will be taught in homemaking (cooking, organization, time management, and crafting), as well as a Bible study lesson, and time for prayer in small group.  Divine Design helps mothers find meaning in the mundane, great purpose in the practical, and supports them as they seek to grow their families toward Christ.  Moms are encouraged to develop relationships outside the class with playdates and other activities.

JOL new logoJoy of Living: Romans

Embedded in the pages of Paul’s letter to the Romans is the power to change individual lives and entire societies. It is a power that we all long to experience as followers of Jesus Christ. Romans deals with how God, through Jesus Christ has enabled human beings to move from a place of condemnation and sin to a place of reconciliation and righteousness. Romans will change your life, just as it has changed thousands of lives through the centuries.

web button Women in the wordWomen in the Word: What Love Is, by Kelly Minter

The Letters of 1, 2 & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness.

SonShip: Come Follow Me

SonShip is a small discipleship group. The group members are focused on helping each other mature in their walk with God as His children. Using a curriculum written by Jody Mayhew, the group listens for His voice as He speaks to them through scripture. Each week, group members share about what God is teaching them. God continues to reveal Himself as the group prays together and experiences the transformation brought about by the Holy Spirit.

PreceptLogoPrecept AM: Galatians – Who Has Bewitched You? Why and How?

As the gospel spread across the Roman world in the first decades after Jesus’ earthly ministry, conflict arose.  Jews and Gentiles were believing the gospel, and a struggle over what it meant to be a Christian began.  What does it mean to live under grace?  Do you have to keep the Law to be a Christian?  All of it or just part of it?  Who is right?  How will we know? God used the apostle, Paul, to write a letter to some churches that were struggling with this issue, a letter that still speaks today.  Its message clearly defines the relationship between Law and grace, and how Christians live under grace, led by the Spirit, free from bondage.

PreceptLogoPrecept PM: God Searches For a Heart Fully His (1 Kings 15 – 2 Kings 1; 2 Chronicles 14-20)

Neither Solomon, his son Rehoboam, nor his son Abijam followed God fully, nor did Jeroboam in Israel. Their hearts were divided. Would God ever find anyone to serve Him like David? Would He ever find one whose heart was fully His? God says that we are to love Him with all of our heart. Is that really possible? This course has the answer.

Women on Wednesday PM – Anxious for Nothing, by John MacArthur

It seems we’re all anxious for something.  Stress has become a part of daily life.  We worry about our jobs, our relationships, our families, and everything in between.  Based on solid biblical insights, this study shares how we can overcome uncertainty, defeat doubt, and experience true freedom from anxiety. “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:6-7

Great time together for busy women! Feel free to come and goas your schedule permits.

6:00 – 6:30 PM:  Early Prayer time
6:30 – 7:45 PM:  Anxious for Nothing Study
7:45 – 8:15 PM:  Late Prayer time

Standing w the LordStanding with the Lord: The Sanctity of Life, The Distribution of Wealth

What does God’s Word say about the issues that divide our culture today? Do we know enough about the biblical basis of what we believe to defend our position to others? If you have ever wondered, ‘What does the Bible really say about that?’ then this group is for you! You will experience an in-depth study of the Lord’s universal and timeless teachings from Scripture, and learn to apply them to contemporary concerns today.
