Please join us as we begin a new study Tuesday, December 3! We will be studying the book of Genesis beginning with Jen Wilkin’s God of Creation (Genesis 1-11) and moving on to God of Covenant (Genesis 12-50) in the spring. Our weekly study time will be extended by 15 minutes to allow for discussion time followed by a video teaching that will wrap up each week’s lesson. Stay tuned for details regarding the exact time. Contact Tracie Aldridge (tracieNC@gmail.com) or Lindsay Colvard (email@example.com) with questions or to request that we order your book if you prefer not to order it yourself (cost will be about $16). Childcare is provided; please let us know if you are not currently participating but plan to attend with children so that we can be prepared to care for your little ones. All are welcome! You’re encouraged to bring a friend or neighbor.
We are excited to be offering a twelve-week study of the books of Lamentations, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah led by Lindsay Colvard this fall. If you’re anything like us, you might know a verse or two from each of these books, but would be hard-pressed to identify the overall message or theme of any one of the books themselves. These probably aren’t your go-to books for daily study or encouragement! I asked Lindsay to share why she’s looking forward to studying these books, and here’s what she said:
I think it will greatly benefit us to study sections of God’s word that some of us aren’t as familiar with, and to see how all of God’s word is profitable. I hope this will encourage us not to be intimidated by less familiar parts of scripture.
I’m also looking forward to considering more fully the Biblical concept of lament, and how it might be a help to us in our Christian lives.
These books contain some very familiar passages, some that we know from their being quoted in the new testament, and I think it will be helpful to understand them more fully by studying them in their old testament context.
We think you’ll be surprised and encouraged by what you learn in this study, and hope you’ll join us for our fall session!
Study Day/Dates: Tuesday mornings, 9:30 – 11:00 from Sept. 3 – Nov. 19
Childcare will be provided. Please indicate your need when signing up.
Please sign up in the church foyer (by Sunday August 18, if you would like us to order your book). No deadline otherwise!
Mark your calendars for March 1 & 2 and get ready for a refreshing time of fellowship with other women!
This year we will be looking at Relationships Rooted in the Gospel, what it looks like to live in God-honoring relationships. In a time where social media has the tendency to dominate our time and energy, forming deep and meaningful relationships can be difficult, but it is important nonetheless. We hope that focused time spent together will help grow relationships we already have and form new ones at this retreat, as we are called to live in community with one another. Our speaker, Angela Howard, will be addressing what God-centered relationships look like.
We will be in a tranquil, secluded mountaintop retreat center called Laurel Ridge. It will be a time of refreshment, worship, learning, and, of course, building meaningful relationships. By giving ourselves time to truly connect and develop friendship, we hope it will be a time of renewal and a chance to focus on the command to live in community with each other. We also look forward to it providing the time to focus on growth in personal relationship with Christ. We hope to see you there!
