The stories of women in the Bible in this ten-session, video-based Bible study. By looking at the triumphs and failures of these women, our Mom’s Connect group will discover new insights and be challenged, encouraged, and empowered to face trials in our own lives by drawing nearer to God. We will study the lives of Eve, Rebekah, Leah, Hannah, Abigail, Gomer, Mary – the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Mary of Bethany,  and the Syrophoenician woman. We will begin Thursday, May 21st, from 9:30-11am in the Fireside Room. 

 

Are you a mom?  Are you looking to get more connected at church?  We would love to have you join our MOMs (Moms on Mondays) group starting, Monday, April 1st @ 7:00pm in the Fireside Room. 

We will be reading and discussing

“One Woman’s Journey Back to Loving the Bible If the Bible isn’t a science book or an instruction manual, then what is it? What do people mean when they say the Bible is inspired? When Rachel Held Evans found herself asking these questions, she began a quest to better understand what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her—and it will change you too. Drawing on the best in recent scholarship and using her well-honed literary expertise, Evans examines some of our favorite Bible stories and possible interpretations, retelling them through memoir, original poetry, short stories, soliloquies, and even a short screenplay. Undaunted by the Bible’s most difficult passages, Evans wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating Scripture’s mysteries. The Bible, she discovers, is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world.”

Books are $12.

We meet as a group of women for the purpose of reading a book together. 
The bonus outcome is that we become friends and share our own life stories as they relate to the current author’s story.  
Now is a great time to jump in and join our group of mixed-aged women as we read & discuss one chapter at a time over an eight week time period.  
 
 
Wednesday Mornings: 10:30—NOON  Faith’s Fireside Room

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.   Wednesday’s Women Book group meets at 10:00 on Wednesday mornings.  They began the book Becoming on Wednesday, March 27th and will complete it on Wednesday, May 22nd.  Each week we’ll read and discuss approximately 3 chapters.  All are welcome!
