FALL 2022 WOMEN’S STUDIES

DATES: Tuesdays beginning September 6

TIMES:  9:30 – 11:30 AM OR 6:15 – 8:15 PM

STUDY OPTIONS:

OPTION 1: 1 Peter: Christ’s Ambassadors to the World

September 6 – November 29
From the beginning of time, believers from every era have struggled with adversity. Today those issues seem particularly daunting: Job loss. Illness. Stress. Persecution. Where are we to place our hope in these unsettling times? Peter challenges us to look beyond our circumstances and gratefully embrace our call to lead holy and hope-filled lives.

This inductive study, published by Grace Bible Church in College Station, Texas, is beautifully written to encourage women in the joys of digging into the Word for themselves and allowing the Holy Spirit to be their teacher. It includes helpful instruction on skills such as cross referencing and word searches as well as thoughtfully written questions that lead to deep application and rich conversation.  Weekly group time will be table focused with lots of time to dig into discussion and pray for one another. Cost $15.00


OPTION 2
: When Strivings Cease: Replacing the Gospel of Self-improvement with the Gospel of Life-transforming Grace, by Ruth Chou Simons AND/OR Get Out of Your Head: a Study in Philippians, by Jennie Allen

These six-week studies will run back-to-back and are meant to easily welcome newcomers midway through the semester. Both are beautifully written, are more topical in nature, and will be accompanied by short video teaching.

September 6 – October 11 – When Strivings Cease
In today’s social media-soaked world, the pressure to perform is overwhelming. Many of us end up feeling constantly behind, lacking, and like we’re failing—at home, at work, with friends, with God.

In this six-session study, Ruth Chou Simons encourages women to discover how God’s profound gift of grace and favor invites us to rest from chasing approval and earning love, and instead discover the freedom of true belonging and worth that doesn’t depend on us. Cost $15.00

October 18 thru November 29 – Get Out of Your Head
Are your thoughts holding you captive? “I’ll never be good enough.” “Other people have better lives than I do.” “God couldn’t really love me.” Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways.

In this six-session video Bible study Jennie gives us practical tools from the book of Philippians to transform our emotions and our outlook. Paul tells us in his letter that conforming our minds to Christ is possible, and we can find freedom from the downward spiral of our thoughts. Cost $15.00
