Tuesday Mornings
Servant Women in the Word (formerly known as Sharing the Kingdom)
9:30-10:45 a.m., September 12 – November 14, 2017
Led by Dr. Robyn Goggs
Community Hall
An Invitation into the Book of Romans
A large group Bible Study that is a favorite among many women as it appeals to the beginning follower as well as the seasoned believer.  Come spend an exciting hour in Bible study, discussion, and Christian fellowship as we dive into the Book of Romans this fall.  No registration required.

Companions in Christ
9:30-11:30 a.m., September 12, 2017 (Ongoing for 28 sessions)
Led by Sherri Price
North Adult Center, Room 10
Beginning Tuesday, September 12, women (and men) are invited into a 28-week Spiritual Formation experience that will change the way to relate to God, to others, and to yourself, opening the door to a lasting impact on your heart and God’s Kingdom.  In a spiritual formation experience, our goal is spiritual growth.  It is more about transformation than information.  Together we will explore different types of prayer; looking at ways to connect our spiritual life to our everyday routine, allowing a deeper awareness of God in our daily being and doings.  We will look at scripture and how it connects and illuminates our lives and our experiences.  The spiritual disciplines of prayer, scripture, study, worship, ministry, and conversation are explored as ways to meet Christ, renew our faith, and deepen our love of God.  Perhaps we will even begin to see ourselves and others differently in God’s light.

Believing Jesus:  A Journey Through the Book of Acts by Lisa Harper and Annie F. Downs
10:00-11:30 a.m., September 12 – November 14, 2017
Led by Lou Ann Morris
North Adult Center, Room 3
This is a small group of women, where you can know others and be known.  What does it mean to believe Jesus?  Not just believe in Jesus, but actually believe what He said–and shape our lives around that truth?  How would that affect the choices we make?  The way we see the world? The way we conduct ourselves with other Christians?  In Believing Jesus, Lisa Harper answers these questions by looking at the lives of the believers in Acts and how Jesus’ command to spread the gospel forever shaped their lives.  Today we are faced with the same decisions the early church faced.  Will we, like them, truly believe the words of Jesus and allow them to transform every part of our lives?

God’s Handiwork Quilting Class

Wednesday Mornings
Finding I AM:  How Jesus Fully Satisfies the Cry of Your Heart by Lysa TerKeurst
9:30-11:00 a.m., September 13-November 15, 2017
Led by Patricia Hocker/Debbi Marshall
South Adult Center, Rooms 1 & 2
Is there an ache in your heart that keeps you up at night?  A prayer you pray over and over again?  Jesus wants to meet you in those moments of struggle and help you through.  Finding I AM by Lysa Terkeurst is a study that takes you to the ancient streets of Israel to find Biblical truth that speaks today.  You’ll explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John and, in doing so, become empowered to trade feelings of depletion and hurt for wholeness in knowing who Jesus is like never before.  Each week includes a short video.

Wednesday Evenings
Believing God by Beth Moore
6:30-8:00 p.m., September 13-November 15, 2017
Led by Elizabeth Johnson
North Adult Center, Room 10
A brand new group with a seasoned leader who shares a favorite Beth Moore study which asks, “Do you believe God or merely believe in Him?”  Do you take God at His Word, believing what He has told us, or do you just believe in his existence and the salvation He offers?  Based on Isaiah 43:10, this study explores what it means to believe in God through studying the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others from Hebrews 11 as examples of persons who believe in God.  We will be encouraged to deepen our own trust in God and receive a fresh word from Him.  Each week will have a video.

What On Earth Am I Here For? by Rick Warren
6:30-8:00 p.m., September 13-November 15, 2017
Led by Sherri Boyd and Darla Bierig
North Adult Center, Room 7
This group is made of wonderful women from all walks of life.  In this Bible study, Rick Warren helps us discover the answer to life’s most fundamental question:  “What on earth am I here for?”  And here’s a clue to the answer:  “It’s not about you.  You were created by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense.  It is only in God that we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance, and our destiny.”  Short video each week.

Jesus Calling Study Series: Experiencing God’s Presence by Sarah Young
6:30-8:00 p.m., September 13-November 15, 2017
Led by Miki Farris
North Adult Center, Room 12
Lively working women in all walks of life make up this study.  Because life has a way of taking the life out of us, author Sarah Young encourages you to lay down your cares and just spend time each day with your heavenly Father.  As you follow the Lord’s instruction to “be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10), you will encounter His peace, be filled with His strength, gain a new perspective on your situation, and experience the full life that only He can provide.  Bible study and discussion questions are led by a different member each week.

Friday Moms Group
You Are Free:  Be Who You Already Are by Rebekah Lyons
9:30-11:30 a.m., September 8-November 17, 2017
Led by Kim Bilger and Meghan Thompson
13.2 Coffee Shop
This is a vibrant group of moms with toddlers and school aged children.  They are a network of support and fellowship for each other as they seek to grow deeper in their faith walk in this season of life.  The study this fall asks us this question:  Have you bought the lie?  Many of us do.  We measure our worth by what others think of us.  We compare and strive, existing mostly for the approval of others.  Pressure rises, anxiety creeps in and we hustle to keep up.  Jesus whispers, “I gave my life to set you free.  I gave you purpose.  I called you to live in freedom in that purpose.”  Christ doesn’t say you can be, or may be, or will be free.  He says you are free.  Freedom is for everyone who wants it–the lost, the wounded, and those weary from all of the striving.  Short video each week.  Childcare is available.
