 Risen Motherhood:

Wednesday 9:30 a.m. (in-person) Ann Lane and Jessica Sadler; Wednesday 6:30 p.m. (zoom) Amy Ragon and Hailee Meals

How does the gospel apply to everyday motherhood? Motherhood is hard. In a world of five-step lists and silver-bullet solutions to become perfect parents, mothers are burdened with mixed messages about who they are and what choices they should make. If you feel pulled between high-fives and hard words, with culture’s solutions only raising more questions, you’re not alone. But there is hope. Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler help you understand and apply the gospel to common issues moms face so you can connect your Sunday morning faith to the Monday morning tantrum. Discover how closely the gospel connects with today’s motherhood.

 Saving Truth:

Wednesday 9:30 a.m. (in-person) Jen Wilson and Tori Wilkerson; Wednesday 6:30 p.m. (in-person) Kathy Goulooze and Ellen Tilleros

How do we find clarity in Christ alone and untangle ourselves from culture of confusion? By accurately describing the Culture of Confusion and how it has affected our society, author Abdu Murray seeks to awaken Westerners to the plight we find ourselves in. He also challenges Christians to consider how they have played a part in fostering the Culture of Confusion through bad arguments, unwise labeling, and emotional attacks. Ultimately, Saving Truth provides arguments from a Christian perspective for the foundations of truth and how those foundations apply to sexuality, identity, morality, and spirituality. For those enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the book offers a way to untangle oneself and find hope in the clarity that Christ offers.

Mark – Inductive

Tuesday 6:00 p.m. (in-person) Tina Taylor
Wednesday 9:30 a.m. (in-person) Pam Ramsey and Tina Elacqua

Who do you believe Jesus Christ is? This study asks the most important question you will ever answer: Who do you believe Jesus Christ is? With all the opinions floating around – He’s a good man, a teacher, a prophet, the Son of God – how can you know who is right? Mark’s account of Jesus’ life gives you the answer, and it is more action-packed and fast-paced than the other three Gospel records. Rather than rehearsing what people said about Jesus, Mark shows you what Jesus actually did. As you learn to carefully observe Mark’s report, you’ll discover that Jesus left no doubt about who He claimed to be. His miracles demonstrated His authority over sickness and infirmity, spiritual darkness, dead religion, threats from nature, and even death itself.

Because He Loves Me:

Wednesday 6:30 p.m. (in-person) Cynthia Santana

How is God’s love the only source of authentic and lasting change? God’s love has the power to change lives. Christians, then, should exhibit the greatest transformation of all because, rightly understood and cherished, God’s love makes them increasingly more like the One who has lavished his love on them. So why do we so often struggle to exhibit God’s love? Biblical counselor Elyse M. Fitzpatrick asks one simple question: “In your pursuit of godliness, have you left Jesus behind?” We need to be rescued from our “identity amnesia” and pointed to our true identity as God’s beloved children―adopted by the Father, united with the Son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Fitzpatrick shows how a genuine transformation of identity leads to a transformation of our daily lives. Those who struggle with either legalism or lawlessness will find encouragement to return to God’s love, the source of authentic and lasting change. Cynthia Santana will facilitate the book discussion and encourage women to live out their identity as those loved by the God of the Universe.

Galatians & Ephesians:

Thursday 9:30 a.m. (in-person) Tracey King

What does it mean to live by the true gospel of grace?
How do we walk as a mature body of believers? Tracey King will walk women through two of Paul’s epistles: Galatians and Ephesians. In the book of Galatians, Paul reminds the Church to embrace and follow the true gospel message of the crucified Messiah. Jesus alone fulfills the laws of Torah and justifies believers. The epistle instructs believers to embrace the liberty found in Christ in order to walk in the Spirit. Once we understand the gospel of grace, we will examine how the gospel story affects believers’ everyday lives. God the Father planned throughout history for Jesus to create a multi-ethnic community of followers. Comprised of Jews and non-Jews, these followers form the covenant family God promised to Abraham. They live in unity as one body in their families, neighborhoods, and churches because of God’s grace.

Women’s Ministry Focus for Fall 2020:

 

Bear Witness

A witness simply tells what she has seen, known, and believes to be true. This Fall, we will take time to experience the majesty of God, recognize the power of the cross in our lives, and abide in His presence first.  If we start anywhere else, it will be like expecting fruit to grow without planting the seed. Let’s cling to the vine, instead. While Eugene teaches us how to Take Courage in today’s world, the women of Fellowship will press pause and see what God is doing in the disruption.  Our desire is to embrace the gospel in order to clearly see the magnificence of Christ and the power of His sacrifice to change us and thus those around us.
