Women’s Study Groups for Fall 2018
Introduction to Inductive Bible Study – day group starting September 6 and evening group starting September 10
Our Precepts teachers are offering a 5-week study called Lord, Teach Me to Study the Bible in 28 Days. This short-term class is open to all women who want to learn more about Inductive Bible Study where God Himself becomes the teacher (Psalm 119:102). Learn how to study Scripture and specifically mark the text to unlock its meaning. This is a very practical, hands-on, learn-by-doing book. Students need only a pen, a few colored pencils…and a prayerful heart to complete each study and experience the Bible’s life-changing power. Both groups meet weekly at the church. Day group is Thursdays (Sep 6 – Oct 4) from 1:00-3:00pm, and the evening group is Mondays (Sep 10 – Oct 8) from 7:00-8:30pm.

Cost for the book is $11 and sign-up is requested by Aug 31.
Women’s Wednesday Morning Gathering – starting September 12
This group meets Wednesday mornings twice a month from 9:30-11:30am in various homes for an intimate time of study, prayer and relationship building. The group is aimed at those wanting more frequent study/fellowship and those who are able to commit to most of the gatherings. We will be studying the bookIdols of the Heartwhich explores how in our hearts we’re all idol-worshippers who put our loves, desires, and expectations in God’s place—and then suffer the consequences of our misplaced affections. Yet we will see that God loves his people and can use even our messy lives and struggles for his glory. Our initial interest gathering is Sept 12 in the home of Melissa Cable. RSVPs for this info gathering are encouraged. Contact Melissa Cable (314-518-0337, firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or to RSVP.
