Cynthia Mays formed this study group about 10 years ago to assist her sisters in Christ in becoming the mighty women of faith that God created them to be! All women are welcome to join us on Monday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm.
The studies range from 5 to 10 weeks in length, are Biblically-based, and may include homework for the next session. Our time together begins with a brief time of fellowship and praise to prepare our hearts for God’s Word. Then, we eat supper and watch that week’s DVD teaching, finishing up with group discussion and a brief time for sharing our concerns and praise reports.
Please join us for our current study – “Numbers” by Melissa Spoelstra – on Monday evenings at 6:30 pm, beginning next Monday, March 11th.
“Something in us aches for more–more hope, more joy, more freedom. All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, and faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it. Before long complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we’re not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way.
In this study of the Book of Numbers, we’ll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. The New Testament tells us that their story was written to warn us (1 Corinthians 10:6) so that we would not make the same mistakes and suffer the same consequences. God sent his only Son to die to buy our freedom from the sin that leads to discontentment, and we find our own promised land of peace and contentment in the life he gives us.
By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God’s ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God’s character and promises.
Together we will learn contentment as we discover more of our incredible God who truly is more than enough. Only God can fill that ache inside and help us focus on his provision and purpose in the midst of life’s joys and pains.”
