Equipping Classes are opportunities for women to connect and deepen their faith, with morning and evening options to meet your schedule.

We do not charge for our classes, so any cost associated with the classes below represents the cost of the study book or workbook which may be purchased from us for your convenience OR on your own through your favorite in-person or online retailer (just choose the NO BOOK option when registering). Is cost an issue? We never want cost to be a barrier to your participation in one of our studies, so if the purchase of a book or workbook would be a financial burden, please contact us!  We will be happy to order a book or workbook for you as our gift or provide a discount code which removes the cost of the book from your registration.

ISAIAH
STRIVING LESS AND TRUSTING GOD MORE (BY MELISSA SPOELSTRA)

Dates:  Wednesdays (Aug 24 – Oct 19)
Time:  9:30 – 11:00AM
Leader:  Ruth Ann Mitchell
Book Cost:  $20 (if purchased through us)

Isaiah was God’s prophet to the nation of Judah, and the surrounding nations, and he lived and served God some 700 years before the birth of Jesus.  But, his message clearly speaks to us even today, calling us to rely on our God … to trust in Him and rest in His promises, not in our human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him you’ll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.

Loving God Above Everything Else (by Daily Grace Co.)

Dates:  Wednesdays (Sept 28 – Oct 26)
Time:  9:30 – 11:00AM
Leader:  Heather O’Laughlin and Jeanine Weber
Book Cost:  $7

There are so many things vying for the attention and affections of our heart, but scripture is clear … only God can truly fulfill our needs and satisfy every longing.  But, how do we know if our hearts are wholly His, and what do we do if we realize we have been treasuring other things more?

Join us for this 6-week workbook and discussion-based study as we:

  • Look at examples of idolatry in Scripture, along with common ways we struggle with idolatry today (some may surprise you!)
  • Look to scripture and prayer for help to stop searching for fulfillment in temporary things, and look only to Him.
  • Be encouraged to honestly examine our hearts to find where we’ve been trusting in powerless idols to meet our daily needs.
  • Remind ourselves why God is the ONLY source of peace and joy that is unchanging and eternal, and why He’s worthy of our whole-hearted devotion!

Wednesday AM or PM

PRECEPT: REVELATION
JESUS’ MESSAGE TO THE CHURCH (CHAPTERS 1 – 3) (BY KAY ARTHUR)

AM and PM Class available!

Dates:  Wednesdays (Sept 7 – Nov 16)
Morning Option:  9:30 – 11:00AM
Evening Option:  5:00 – 6:15PM
Leader:  Laura Holifield
Book Options:  $25 or $20 (depending on workbook choice, and if purchased through us)

Life-changing intimacy with God is the heart of Precept inductive Bible studies.  How amazing that we have a God that wants a relationship with us!  And being in His word connects us with His heart and His ways.  Whether you are new to the Bible or a long-time student of God’s word, you will be blessed as you discover truth for yourself (but not by yourself!)

Chapters 1 through 3 of Revelation contain Jesus’ message to seven churches. Almost 2000 years later, we will dig in verse by verse and see the majesty of Christ Jesus in Chapter 1. Then in Chapters 2 and 3, Jesus will hold up a mirror to His bride, the church, to help her get ready for His return. Are you open to looking in that mirror? He loves you. He’s coming. Let’s get ready!

No previous Precept study experience is required!

Homework: Full Workbook = 5 hours/week | In & Out Workbook = 1-3 hours/week

FOUNDATIONS
DIVING INTO THE BASICS OF THE FAITH (A DISCUSSION GROUP FOR WOMEN)

Dates:  Wednesdays (Aug 24 – Dec 7)
Time:  6:30 – 8:00PM
Leaders:  Jenn Eppinette and Mandy Hayes
Book Cost:  None

Join us as we examine and discuss the essential truths of the Christian faith, covering topics like grace, the security of the believer, predestination and more!  Whether you’ve been in Christ and a student of the Word for many years or are new and still searching, this will be a great study to help you “nail down” what you believe and why, and even defend what you believe when others ask.  It’s also a safe place to ask the questions you’ve always wondered.

Whether you can join us every week, or just once in a while, you’ll be glad you did!

Homework: None
