Monday & Tuesday Studies

Giddy Up, Eunice
Author: Sophie Hudson
Leader: Monda King // Room: The Hub in the Inn // Date/Time: Monday at 9:30 am // Cost: $10
It’s easy for women to focus on what seems to separate us: differences in age, parenting styles, or career goals. The reality, though, is that we have far more in common than we realize, and since Scripture shows us the blessing of friendships across generations, it’s high time we step out of our same age, same-stage silos. Life is much better that way.

Women of the Word
Author: Jen Wilken
Leader: Kelly Elliott // Room: WEB 130 // Cost: $10
We all know it’s important to study God’s Word. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. What’s more, a lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? Offering a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture, this study will equip you to engage God’s Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.  Each week, the class members will practice a new Bible study method with various books of the Bible.

Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles - CONTINUES FULL SEMESTER
Leader: Rebecca Smith // Location: Medina // Date/Time: Every other Tuesday at 9 am // Cost: $17
In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the Gospel, he shows we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God-grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with version, purpose and joy.
