Women’s Winter Bible Studies

Living in Freedom: A Biblical Road Map for Navigating Life’s Pain

Sunday @ 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

January 10th -February 14th

Tina Elacqua and Colleen Thompson

You are not alone. Not a single person on this planet is spared heartache, sorrow, pain, and loss. Living in Freedom is a 6-week equipping class based on a book of the same name by Dr. Tina Elacqua.  It has been designed to help participants to understand how to process pain through the first-person testimonies of women who are overcoming woundedness and hopelessness.

Tina Elacqua and Colleen Thompson will speak from their own experiences.  Tina as a survivor and a counselor as well as from her professional training, will provide a roadmap based on biblical strategies to encourage women to draw close to Jesus and experience His healing touch.  The hope is that these sessions will equip women in their own lives and offer them tools to point other women to the only hope we have in this fallen world: Jesus.

 

Inductive Study: Nehemiah

Nehemiah – Rebuilding, Revival and Restoration of the People of God

How do you respond when the enemy tries to interfere with God’s clear direction? The enemies of God sought to frighten Nehemiah as he proceeded to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah shows us how one man can make a difference through leadership.  He demonstrates obedience in the face of opposition, while his story reflects the sovereign hand of God’s miraculous blessing and provision on the life of an ordinary man aligned with His will.

Join Tina Taylor and Shondra Baskin on Monday evenings as they study Nehemiah verse by verse and discuss how we as believers persevere in the face of adversity.  This study will meet out South.  The meeting location is 21 5th Street in Bemis.

 

2 Timothy

Monday @ 6:45 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

January 11th– February 1st

Amanda Chenault

Join Amanda Chenault for a four-week dive into the book of 2 Timothy. In this book, we will learn more about the discouragement Timothy experienced when things in Ephesus did not go as planned, and how Paul writes to his spiritual son to encourage him.

This past year we can all relate to discouragement when things don’t go as we had planned. Paul’s letter includes challenges to stay faithful to the message. We invite you to grab a friend, a daughter, a grandmother, a college student, or a neighbor and come study with us as we seek to be reminded to stay faithful to the message God has laid out for us. This study is open to women of all ages. We desire to create an environment where “Mary and Marthas” can sit together and study together and learn from one another regardless of age or season of life.

Counter Culture by David Platt

Wednesday @ 9:30 a.m.- 11:00 a.m.

January 13th-February 17th

Jen Wilson and Tori Wilkerson (AM)

Welcome to the front lines. Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn―traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this?

In Counter Culture, Platt presents an unapologetic yet winsome call for Christians to faithfully follow Christ into the cultural battlefield in ways that will prove both costly and rewarding.  Join Jen Wilson and Tori Wilkerson as they continue to wrestle with how we bear witness and present the gospel as the only response to a hurting world.

 

Psalm 107 by Lauren Chandler

Wednesday @ 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

January 10th-February 17th

Jessica Sadler and Suzanna Adamson (AM)

There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast love.

Psalm 107 is a call to worship. It reminds us that each season of life is an opportunity to reveal the anchor of our souls. In this 7-session Bible study by Lauren Chandler, Jessica Sadler and Suzanna Adamson will help women to learn to face both storms and deserts with courage and trust in Jesus, and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. For there is no fear for the one who fears the Lord, the one whose soul is anchored in His steadfast love.

Thursday @ 9:30 a.m.- 11:00 a.m.

January 14th– March 4th

Tracey King

Written around the same time, Philippians and Colossians are letters Paul wrote during his imprisonment.  Tracey King will lead women in a 8-week consecutive study of these two epistles to show how Paul teaches us how to live with joy in the midst of our troubles. Although one was written as an encouragement to the people of Philippi and the other a warning of false teaching to the church at Colosse, studying these two letters will give practical application to being rooted in the supremacy of Christ and seeking true joy in serving Him.

 

Women’s Ministry Focus 2020-2021:

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.

The Well – Fall 2020

Take a second to see videos of women who are bearing witness in Jackson.
