Women’s Bible Study: Looking For Lovely…Collecting the Moments that Matter by Annie F. Downs
Dates: Feb. 13th-Mar. 27th
Time: 8:00 PM
Description: Looking For Lovely…Collecting the Moments that Matter by Annie F. Downs.
As Christians, we are not promised lives of ease. And only when we learn to spot the lovely in the midst of hardship can we experience the transcendent peace of
God that keeps us persevering when we want to give up. In this 7-week Bible study, Annie examines the ordinary people of the Bible—fishermen, farmers, musicians, women—to discover how they sought beauty in their everyday lives to hold on to the hope of God’s perfect timing.
Materials: Looking For Lovely…Collecting the Moments that Matter by Annie F. Downs. Books can be purchased from Amazon or Lifeway.
Class Contact: The class is facilitated by Cheryl Kendall and is limited to 15 participants. Please email Cheryl, firstname.lastname@example.org
IN-PERSON: The Letter to the Ephesians Bible Study
Location: Wesley 703/704
Dates: Jan. 9th-Apr. 3rd; no class on Jan. 16th
Time: 9-10:45 AM
Exiled from Israel and held as a political prisoner for Christ on his way to Rome, Paul had something to say to the believers in Ephesus and Asia Minor. He had spent over three years ministering in the region. He had lived there, preached there, been persecuted there, bled there, and nearly died there.
Yet, as we learn in The Letter to the Ephesians, Paul’s confidence did not waver, his faith and vision never faltered: God had acted decisively in Christ to unify people and establish the church assembly, the people of God set apart and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
This 12-week study Dr. Fred Long takes learners through Paul’s grand vision of the Church as Christ’s body, a people called to be holy and blameless in love. As the political head of the Church Body, Christ exemplifies virtue, and the church aspires to grow to be like him in sacrificial love and service. Paul, as an ambassador of Christ in chains, depicts the church assembly as a holy temple filled with God, Christ, and the Spirit, and then stands firm wearing divine armor ready to withstand all evil forces and to spread the peace of the gospel of Christ to the whole world.
