Joy in the Morning
We offer Bible studies on Tuesday mornings for women of any ages.  Please come join us as we grow closer to Christ together!  We would love to meet you! 
Tuesday Mornings
starts: October 6, 2015 at 9:15am
Leader: Cathy Banks  
Meets in L301
4 weeks

Are you ever afraid someone will ask you why you believe what you believe? Do you fear someone
might question what you believe? Responding to people's questions and challenges can get complicated. But what if you were confident you had the answer to the most important question about your faith?

Thursday Mornings
  Believing Jesus by Lisa Harper
  starts: Thursday, October 1 at 9:30am
   Leader: Teresa Milne 
   Meets in L301
   8 weeks
  Designed to be used in conjunction with the DVD study, this study guide will help you dig deeper
  into the teachings and apply what you have learned. In Believing Jesus, an 8-session DVD study,
  Lisa Harper retraces the steps of the apostles in the book of Acts, while throwing in a few of her
  own crazy adventures along the way. The disciples didn't have much of a road map after Jesus
  ascended to heaven, but God's grace and spirit filled in the gaps as they moved forward
  It required their willingness to risk everything to establish a new community that would change
  the future world. Are you willing to risk everything?

Joy in the Word Evening Bible Study 
Counter Culture by David Platt
6:45pm - beginning Monday, September 21
Leader: Deb McQuilkin 
Meets at the home of Debbie Sims in the St. Andrews area
6 weeks
David Platt believes that the truths of the gospel should compel us to a contrite, compassionate, and courageous personal response to social issues in the culture. Using biblical foundations, practical illustrations, and personal exhortations, this study is a pointed yet winsome call for readers to faithfully follow Christ in countercultural ways. There will be a cost. There will be a reward. Do Christians in the contemporary church have the courage to counter the culture?
Books are $13 and available for purchase in the Main Church Office.
