Who is Jesus? Who and what does he claim to be? What does his self-revelation teach us about God the Father? How should we respond to the answers to these questions? Through this year’s study of the Gospel of John, we’ll consider these questions and many more. Study questions to guide observation and understanding will be provided weekly. We’ll also consider how the truths we encounter should shape and impact our thoughts and actions. To sign up, please complete the form below. Questions? Email Tracie @ tracieNC@gmail.com. There is no cost for study questions or materials, though purchase of God for Us: Discovering the Heart of the Father through the Life of the Son, by Abby Ross Hutto, is recommended, as we will make use of the content and questions from this additional resource during our discussion time. (A group order will be made for those interested.)
The link below will take you to a Google Form where you can sign up. It’s not pretty, but it works!
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
Welcome to the blog of the Women’s Care Team of Harbor Church. We are grateful you took the time to stop by, and hope that you will be encouraged in the faith because you did so. While our initial entries, tagged “Judges,” capture or summarize key concepts of our current women’s Bible study, we believe the scriptural truths they contain can benefit those beyond the group of women presently able to attend. Over time we will post on a variety of topics related to walking in relationship with the Lord as his daughters by faith in Jesus Christ. Our virtual welcome mat is always out, flowers are on the table, and the cookies are fresh. (All of this is much easier to maintain in the virtual world!) Come by again soon!
