Discipleship

The study meets 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings, 8-9 am, in Room B3
The Thursday morning Men’s Bible Study, which meets 1st and 3rd Thursdays, 8 am, in Room B3, is starting a new study of the Corinthian epistles. We are about a half-dozen men who read an assigned passage, usually about a chapter a session, and then engage in a free flowing discussion of it. Each session is “self-contained”, so there is no requirement of having been at previous sessions to participate in a given session. In October we will meet on the 4th and 18th. We will be examining 1 Corinthians 2 and 3. Come give us a try.

Jen Wilkin’s study, 1 Peter, A Living Hope in Christ

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading.

 In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concerns on big picture issues for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ.
Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide the study of 1 Peter as participants are challenged to read the book in its entirety each week.

 Features:

  • Personal study segments to complete between group sessions
  • 9-session study with 8 weeks of homework
  • Verse-by-verse approach to complete a book study

 Benefits: 

  • Expand your understanding of 1 Peter for personal spiritual growth by reading the book in its entirety throughout each week of study
  • Follow a verse-by-verse approach to complete a book study
  • Discover the gospel of Christ as learners seek to conform fully to the Scriptures

Dig deeper into Scripture individually and alongside other women—both those new to Bible study and those more familiar with Scriptures—with this widely-applicable study. For further information contact Gail Jenner at 757 871-6074.

 

Wednesday Women’s Bible Study

The Wednesday Women’s Bible Study group is currently studying Calvin Miller’s book, A Hunger for The Holy: Nurturing Intimacy with Christ. In this eight-week study, Miller uses the Book of Psalms in helping us explore our hunger for intimacy with God. Though he sees the pathway to God’s holiness as being a journey into ourselves, Miller believes our end is not to know ourselves but to know Christ.

New people are welcome to join us at any time. We meet weekly from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the Hospitality Center classroom. Please contact Linda Ward (757-220-2232 or revlward@gmail.com) with your questions or for more information about our group.
