Life Under the Sun (Ladies)

Ladies’ Bible Study
Sundays, January 7 — February 25  |  5:00 PM  |  B402

Consider the wisdom of Ecclesiastes afresh as we search for a solid foundation for life under the sun. Together, we’ll learn to name our anxieties, concerns, and disappointments. We’ll discover how Ecclesiastes is more than self-help or good advice—how it frees us to ask the questions that Jesus Himself will eventually answer. And through its raw honesty and unflinching commitment to goodness, we’ll find hope in the One who guides all days under the sun.

Facilitated by Ann Amster

Daniel: Faithful in the Fire (Men)

Daniel: Faithful in the Fire
Sundays, January 7 — February 25  |  5:00 PM  |  B408

Unlike most of the other books in the Hebrew Bible, the Book of Daniel is not set in Israel. Instead, it’s in the heart of a hostile, pagan empire where God’s people have been taken captive. Daniel is about how to thrive in a dark world. Men facing the cultural challenges of today will connect to the ancient wisdom of this Old Testament book and learn that the power to make a difference is found in the commitment to be different.

Facilitated by Mike Nuss & Stephen Renner

Ladies Bible Study: Gideon

Ladies Bible Study: Gideon
Begins Tuesdays, February 20  |  9:30 AM  |  347

When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or a fleece spread beneath the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that. This is a story about God and His people—His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of, even through, their weakness. This 7-session study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, learn to see them as the gifts given specifically and strategically by God. If you’ve ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you.

Facilitated by Nancy Burt
