Bible Study Opportunities

JOY Group Bible Study (a women’s group) just completed their Advent study entitled Awaiting the Already. The study, a compilation of accounts found in each of the Gospels. Although the four books present the event somewhat differently, each of them lead us on the Advent journey of preparation for Christ’s coming. Awaiting the Already took us on a tour through the Gospel narratives, showing us what parts of the Christmas story come from which Gospel, and helped us to recognize that each Gospel writer invites us to encounter a fresh experience of the birth of Christ. The study was well-received by all who participated.

Check back here for the title of the group’s Lenten study…coming soon!



Wednesday @ 10:00a: Bible Study and Time of Prayer.  Beginning a 9-week look at WOMEN & IDENTITY written by Adele Ahlberg Calhoun and Tracey Bianchi. We live only a small fraction of the lives God has for us. Our lives get smaller and smaller, circling around the minute-by-minute disappointments and demands of the present moment while God whispers softly or even hollers for us to harness our whole hearts. Written by experienced spiritual leaders Adele Ahlberg Calhoun and Tracey Bianchi, the nine studies in this guide follow the biblical themes as well as the journeys of women showing the way to embracing God’s strength and wisdom to live whole lives.”
