New Women’s Bible Studies
Posted Saturday, August 28th, 2010
Proverbs 31:30 says “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” In Hebrews 4:12 we read “For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any two edged sword.” And Jesus says in John 15:5, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Whether you feel like you have your life all together or you feel like you’re living in chaos...Whether you are lonely or feel you are surrounded by people who love you… Whether you are retired or are working around the clock; have known the Lord most of your life, or just recently heard about Him; are struggling greatly or have it all together… YOU need to be plugged into the Word!
And what better way to be in the Word than through a women’s Bible Study? We have one just for you starting up this fall! We love you. We’ve been praying for you. We want you to be a part of this! Won’t you join us? It’ll change your life!

Believing God: Experiencing a Fresh Explosion of Faith
Meets weekly: Wednesdays, 7:00-9:00pm
Starts Wednesday, Sept 29th
At Grace Church in the Youth Room (Lower Level of the gym building)
Laurie Leon will be facilitating this in-depth women’s Bible study written by Beth Moore. It’s based on Isaiah 43:10 and explores what it means not only "to believe in God" but "to believe Him." The bride of Jesus Christ in our generation is nearly paralyzed by unbelief. God is calling His bride to a fresh and lavish anointing of faith. Through studying the lives of Abraham, Moses, and others as examples of persons who believed God, Beth Moore encourages women to deepen their own trust in God and receive a fresh word from Him.
A Note from Beth Moore:
"God confronted me with the truth that though I had believed in Himfor many years, I had hardly begun to believe Him.He made something clear to me that He has sent me forth to say to you: God is so much more than we have yet acknowledged and experienced. He is capable of tremendously more than we have witnessed. I have become utterly convinced that we see so little primarily because we believe Him for so little. Here's the great news: God wants to change all that!"
Your commitment level: Each of the 10 weeks includes 5 days a week of personal interactive study. When we come together on Wednesday nights, please arrive promptly as we will be watching a 1 hour teaching segment by Beth Moore as well as discussing questions from the previous week’s study. This will change your life!
Childcare is NOT provided at this time.
Cost is $16 for your Member Handbook. Please sign up by Sept 12 so we can order your Member Handbook. You may sign up on Sunday mornings at the Women’s Ministry table, or by calling Laurie at 262-1802.
Feel free to call Laurie if you have any questions.
Moms In Christ
Meets Monthly: 3rd Wednesday of the month, 9:00-11:00am
At Grace Church, in the Green Room
Starts Sept 15th
Moms in Christ is a group of young Moms and mentor Moms who get together once a month to encourage each other in our walks with the Lord and to fellowship together. We are very excited to see where the Lord will lead MIC this year! After a lot of positive feedback last year when we changed things up, this year we will continue on that path as we listen to speakers each month instead of going through books. We will be discussing with each other the many responsibilities the Lord has put before us as His daughters, being wives to our husbands, and of course mothers to our children. We hope you can be with us!
Need:We are looking for a Child Care Coordinator to organize the child care schedule. This person would be in charge of contacting volunteers and coordinating the schedule for our once a month 2-hour meeting. We also need volunteers to provide child care, Mentor Moms within our study, and speakerseach month to discuss how God has prepared and provided for you as a Mom. Please, if you can serve in any of these ways or if you have any questions, contact Meredith Wiser at 485-3030 or Margaret Moser at 277-0383.
Child care IS provided!
For more info contact Meredith or Margaret at the numbers above.
The Frazzled Female
Meets Weekly: Tuesdays, 6:00-7:15am
At Perkos Restaurant in Lakeport
7-week Group, starts Sept 14
Monica Schlange will be facilitating this group as they go through the book “Frazzled Female” by Cindi Wood. “The Frazzled Female” is a resource designed especially for women. By sitting at the feet of Jesus and absorbing His teaching, women will be able to deal with essential issues like managing their time, getting along with difficult people, taking time for themselves, and even organizing their lives.
This thought-provoking, yet light-hearted, study helps women discover practical, biblical help to confront issues that otherwise leave them discouraged. It helps participants develop biblical skills to handle stressful situations; grow in their relationship with Jesus; and ultimately experience peace, joy, and a saner lifestyle.
Commitment Level: Each week women will have 5 days of study to do, approximately 15-20 minutes long (or more if you’d like!), as well as a verse to memorize each week and optional “defrazzler” activites and weekend studies. Please plan to be very punctual to our weekly meetings as we will have limited time. Also, please plan to purchase a meal or beverage each week as we are meeting in a restaurant.
Child care is NOT provided. Cost is $10 for your book. Please sign up by Sept. 4th. We only have room for 5 more ladies, so be sure to sign up early!
