|Better: A Study of Hebrews by Jen Wilkin – Led by Becky Allen
In this 10-week, verse-by-verse study of the Book of Hebrews, Jen Wilkin explores how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Through stories of Old Testament heroes and practices, the author of Hebrews demonstrates how the new covenant is superior to the old and how Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of every promise. Explore familiar verses in context of the entire Bible, learning how to place your hope and faith in Christ alone.
|Abide: A Study of 1, 2, & 3 John by Jen Wilkin – Led by Dianne Winter
Cost: $25 (includes online access to the Bible Study videos)
How can we hold onto assurance of our faith? How can we discern the truth from a lie? How can we know God loves us? In these three short letters, the apostle John reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it. And he reminds us, as well. In this 10-week Bible study on the letters of 1, 2, and 3, John, Jen Wilkin helps you see how two thousand years later, his words call to Christians in similar challenges to recall a great salvation and to abide in the truth.
A Woman of Wisdom: Proverbs – led by Beverly Turner
Description: This study on the Book of Proverbs will include material that covers specific qualities that describe a woman of wisdom. For each quality, there are vivid illustrations of biblical women who embraced or rejected God’s wisdom—women who will make the proverbs come alive for you. For this study, participants will purchase the Inspire: Proverbs book, which is a beautifully illustrated journal featuring many line-art illustrations and plenty of spaces for notetaking. This book will offer a creative way to engage with, meditate on, and respond to Scripture. This is a 10-week study.
"Mentiras Que Las Mujeres Creen" Spanish Language Bible Study – led by Lucy Salazar
En este libro, Nancy expone las áreas de engaño que más comúnmente creen las mujeres cristianas: mentiras sobre Dios, el pecado, las prioridades, el matrimonio y la familia, las emociones y más. Luego arroja luz sobre cómo podemos ser liberadas de la esclavitud y libres para caminar en la gracia, el perdón y la vida abundante de Dios. Nancy ofrece el arma más eficaz para contrarrestar y vencer los engaños de Satanás: ¡la verdad de Dios! Se reunirán en el salon MAC 275.For more information on this study, contact Lucy at [email protected].
