Women's Bible Study | Tuesdays

Exploring the Book of John

Class begins: September 14

Register here.

Who was Jesus―a wise teacher? A prophet? A fake? During Jesus’ lifetime, no one understood His mission, but by narrating a few carefully chosen episodes in Jesus’ life, the Apostle John unfolds the truth. Throughout the centuries, John’s portrait of Jesus has drawn men and women into a trusting, intimate relationship with the Son of God. As we study John together in this year-long Bible study in community, you can begin deciding for yourself who Jesus is and how to apply these truths to your daily life. We invite you to join us for teaching and small group discussion, whether you are new to the Bible or would like a more in-depth look at the Gospel of John.

Women's Bible Study | Wednesdays

Hoping For Something Better - A Study of the Book of Hebrews

Class Begins: September 22

Register here.

The book of Hebrews was written to a culture much like ours—believers who were uncertain, frustrated, and demoralized. Things weren’t as they had hoped! We live in a time of uncertainty, frustration, and low moral, too. Let’s look together to God’s word and His direction. The author of Hebrews encourages us with advice for tired Christians. Keep on keeping on, as we fix our eyes on Christ, the author of our faith.

Our study guide will be: Hoping For Something Better, by Nancy Guthrie

Teacher: Patti Kulpinski

The Holy Spirit Project: Live An Empowered, Spirit-filled Life

Class Begins: September 22

Register here.

The Working Women’s Bible Study will take on a Holy Spirit Project for the fall of 2021 to live "An Empowered Spirit-filled Life" as we study the book of Acts also known as the book of the Holy Spirit.

The book of Acts is a fascinating book. It starts with a group of downhearted people who had just lost their leader and teacher. Ordinary people who had given up everything to follow a Messiah they were convinced would bring change to the world. After Jesus died, the disciples could be forgiven for giving up due to being overwhelmed and stopping the mission there, but they didn’t. Something changed within this group of people which lead to the early church spreading like wildfire. The disciples grew as leaders and were able to oversee a movement which was growing day by day. What lead to this change? The spirit of God. The Holy Spirit.

Sacred Journey | Thursdays

A Space for Transformation

Class Begins: September 23

Register here.

Don’t we all have a deep longing for true and lasting change – for genuine spiritual transformation? Transformation happens as we become who God made us to be. Becoming is not so much something we do, as it is the end result of what God does in us. As a matter of fact, becoming has a whole lot more to do with being than it does with doing: being aware of His voice, being open to His hand, and being convinced of His love.

This semester we will explore six foundational words that form a framework for the life of God within us - words that offer rich images to step into, words that provide a certain rhythm to move to, words that invite us to a better view of God, life and faith. These words will move us in a particular direction; leading us toward a much desired destination – that of spiritual transformation.

Come and discover how to experience the genuine transformation you desire in this spiritual formation focused class. Jim Branch’s book “Becoming” will be our guide this semester. Our class time will include spiritual practices, chapter conversations, individual guided solitude and small group discussion aimed at helping you grow deeper in your spiritual life. We look forward to having you!

Thursdays at 9:30 a.m.

Teachers: Joan Kelley and Gail Donahue


Moms with Teens | Thursdays

Class Begins: September 23

Register here.

With all the messages and noise surrounding you in everyday life and in the world today, whose voice are you listening to? What lies are you believing about yourself and living out? How do these lies impact your relationship with your kids and your parenting? What is the truth and how can it change everything?

Join us for a soul-filling semester as we grow in faith and family influence through exploring the video series Self Talk by Karen Stubbs. Karen will identify common lies we carry and help us discover and grow in “strength and freedom for each day as [we] create new habits of self talk based on biblical truth.” Moms will also share their personal experiences with the lies that influence them and their families along with the transforming power of God’s Truth.

Whether you and your tween, teen, or emerging adult are succeeding or struggling, come as you are to experience a lifeline of grace and truth through relatable teaching and authentic community with moms who are in the midst of the journey with you.

"All of you is welcome here!"
