Session One (September 15th – December 8th)


Becoming a Woman Whose God Is Enough

Author: Cynthia Heald

We all want genuine contentment but so few seem to find it. Perhaps it’s partly due to the fact we don’t know our God nearly well enough. This study reminds us that He wants to bless us with His fullness and teach us to depend on Him completely. We will learn the importance of  turning away from things of the world to the Lord Himself, from selfishness to humility, from unbelief to a deeper trust and walk with God. No matter where you are in life, God is ready to meet you there and reveal Himself to you so that you might indeed, be a woman whose God is enough.

Session Two (January 12th – March 16th)


Lamb of God

Author: Nancy Guthrie

For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.” (John 5:46)  Christ’s words are a wonderful introduction to this study where we will see the many ways Moses spoke of Jesus in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Gain new insight as we study the story of Israel’s deliverance and journey and a greater understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Old Testament Scripture. The Bible’s story, from beginning to end, is the story of the Lamb – the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

Session Three (April 6th – May 18th)


The Armor of God

Author: Priscilla Shirer

The Armor of God is more than just a biblical description of the believer’s inventory. It is an action plan for putting on your armor and developing a personalized strategy so you can stand strong in the midst of an invisible spiritual war that rages around you every day. As we study the Word of God you will be reminded of the importance of protecting yourself from head to foot so you can have victory in Christ rather than failure in the midst of the enemy’s strategic plan to wreak havoc on your life. Learn how to put on your armor and “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” Ephesians 6:10

Session Four (June 8th – August 3rd)


1 Peter – A Living Hope In Christ

Author:  Jen Wilkin

Peter, a man who knew Jesus and witnessed his life, an imperfect man with a growing faith, challenges us to look beyond today, beyond current circumstances to a future inheritance. As we study 1 Peter, we will see him share his own concerns about big picture issues for the early believers, reminding them of the living hope they have in Christ, a hope that is ours as well!

    The Finality of Jesus Christ by Jim Andrews and Juli Grose

    The Finality of Jesus Christ

    “Is there really only one way to God?” Many people love to challenge Christians with that question! Was Jesus mistaken when He claimed to be “… the way, the truth and the life?”
