Open Hearts....Open Minds....Open Doors
-- Grace offers a yearly summer Bible study geared to areas of
interest to women. The next study will be "Lord, Teach Me to
Pray," which will take place on Mondays, beginning June 18 and
continuing for five weeks. Sessions will be held in the morning
and again in the evening. Child care will be provided if needed.
If you are interested, please email the church
(email@example.com) with your name, phone number, whether you
wish to enroll in the morning or evening session, and if you
need child care. Invite your friends!
Men's Studies -- We have also offered several Bible studies for men, including studies on Peter, Paul and David. These have been done in a small-group outreach format that encourages discussions. Studies usually run for less than nine weeks. Before-class reading is not required.
Disciple -- Disciple is a program of disciplined Bible study aimed at developing strong Christian leaders. It focuses on the disciple as learner, believer, follower, proclaimer, and servant while providing the fellowship of a small group for study, prayer, preparation, support, and servanthood.
Disciple assumes that the Bible is key to renewal in the church and affirms that the canon was formed as it is in order for God to speak to us. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God and draws upon the work of scholars to aid understanding of the Bible.
Over the course of the four-phase Disciple Bible study, participants will have studied the entire Bible in survey fashion followed by in-depth study of the whole Bible according to groupings of literature.
The first study in the program is Disciple: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study, a thirty-four week overview of the entire Bible. Subsequent studies take Disciple graduates deeper into selected portions of Scripture. Disciple: into the Word into the World concentrates on Genesis, Exodus, Luke, and Acts. Disciple: Remember Who You Are focuses on the Prophets and the letters of Paul, and Disciple: under the Tree of Life covers the Writings, John, and Revelation. Completion of Disciple: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study is highly recommended before participating in the subsequent studies, which may be done in any order.
Women's Summer Bible Study -- We are excited to announce our Women's Summer Bible Study: "Nehemiah -- A Heart That Can Break" by Kelly Minter. This seven-week study will be held at 10:00 a.m. and also at 6:00 p.m. on Mondays from June 10 to July 29 (except June 24, the week of Vacation Bible School). Please save the dates and start praying for this study to bless our church, our ladies and families and the ones we bring with us to hear and act on God's Word. Please contact Cathy Condon at 571-0077 for information and to offer the way you would be willing to help.
