We seek to "strengthen the hand" of the women to whom we minister in one of two ways—through growth opportunities and service opportunities. We invite you to join us for one of our offerings listed below.
Prayers of the Faithful
Sunday mornings at 10:30am in Room 12 (weekly)
Begins January 7-March 18
What might assist you in developing a deeper, more satisfying prayer life? Need some fresh inspiration? A renewed sense of focus? Some keys that will benefit you in the discipline of prayer? Then join us as we explore select prayers of Old and New Testament saints. By eavesdropping on their conversations with God we hope to glean insight into ways our own prayers may become more meaningful.
Anchored Faith—A Study of Hebrews
Monday evenings from 5:45-7:30pm at 7205 Shamrock Court (bi-weekly)
Light dinner provided, childcare is not provided
January 15-April 23
PorchLight is an interactive Bible study that seeks to assist women in discovering for themselves the joy of growing in knowing God through the study of His Word. Join us as we embark upon a study of Hebrews.
What words would describe the quality of your faith? Easily shaken. Rock solid. Wishy-washy. Confident. Full of doubt. Laser-focused. Sluggish. Assured. Steadfast. Shrinking. Growing. The author of Hebrews directs us to “fix our eyes on Jesus,” the centerpiece of Christianity, the One in whom our faith is placed. As we embrace all He is, has done, and is doing to secure our salvation our faith will be more deeply anchored as it rests in Him.
Tuesday mornings from 9:30-11:00am in the Living Room (weekly)
Infant through preschool childcare provided
March 20 - April 17
Join us for a meaningful discussion and fellowship as we study the Book of James. We will be learning a new approach to study scripture that will aid you in your personal Bible time.
1 Peter—A Living Hope in Christ, by Jen Wilkin
Wednesday evenings from 6:40-8:00pm in the Conference Room (weekly)
Infant through preschool childcare provided
$13 workbook fee
January 17-April 11
Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance.
He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week. (from www.lifeway.com)
(This study is a continuation of last semester. We will finish 1 Peter and move into an overview of II Peter.)
The Book of Hebrews—Persevering in Faith
Thursday mornings from 6:30-7:30am at various homes (weekly)
Begins January 18-May 10
Charles Spurgeon once wrote, “By perseverance the snail reached the ark.” And it has been said that no matter how slow you go, at least you’re lapping everyone on the couch. Funny...but how do we persevere in faith when there are overwhelming distractions in our lives? How do we get off the couch? And where do we find the motivation to keep putting one foot in front of the other? Our study this fall will be the book of Hebrews, a letter of encouragement to first-century Jewish believers who, under persecution, were having a difficult time moving forward in faith. Hebrews likens our faith to a race; and it’s not just a sprint, it’s a marathon! So get up early and lace up your Adidas. On your mark...get set...come!

Hand In Hand
Encouraging, Loving, and Supporting
Hand in Hand is comprised of women who have a heart to reach out and walk along-side, for a period of time, those women who, due to unique circumstances in their lives, are in need of extra encouragement, love, and support. The goal of this team is to link a sister moving through a faith-testing season with another sister who can help point her to God, move forward in faith, plug into body life in a meaningful way, and meet practical needs as they arise when possible. To help with this ministry, please contact the church office at 402-484-6020 or email@example.com.
