Tuesday Morning Women’s Study

Not currently meeting during COVID-19 Crisis
Tuesdays 9:30 am
Fellowship Hall, Holy Grounds Rm.
 
Tuesday Morning Women’s Study Group begins meeting again on Tuesday 1/7 at 9:30am with our new study :

You will not be required to buy a book this spring, but to read along in your Bibles.  We will be following a Bible Study video called  Pursuing God by Margaret Feinberg studying both Genesis and the Gospel of John.  (See below).

You don’t need to read anything for our first meeting.  When we start on January 7th, we will not only be starting a new study, a new year, but also a new decade.  We will definitely be starting new…so the study of Genesis (the beginning) is very appropriate. However, sometimes before we start looking forward, it’s good to take a look behind.  What has been happening in your life over this past decade?  What were the major events, the highs and the lows? What were your goals?  What were your prayer requests, both those that were answered and those that are still ongoing? What have you learned and how has God been faithful through these past 10 years?  Think about these things as we will be discussing them on Tuesday.

Genesis and the Gospel of John are written to spark your desire to pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. From the opening scene of God walking in the garden with humanity to Jesus hunched in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane, this 12-week video Bible Study will awaken you to the Lord’s beauty and love in a fresh and transformative way. Note: This study is the new combined edition of Pursuing God’s Love and Pursuing God’s Beauty.
