New Bible Study
Walking through the bible with Women United
Thursday's at 1 PM
Matthew accepted Christ's invitation to follow him and never turned back. He spent the rest of his life convincing folks that this carpenter was the King. Jesus gave the call and never took it back. The relationship Jesus had with Matthew can convince us that if Jesus had a place for Matthew, a tax collector, he might also have a place for us.
We will dig into Matthew's Gospel to find out what it looks like to be chosen by the Carpenter King--and what it looks like to accept his invitation. As you read, study, journal, and discuss the book of Matthew, we will unpack these key themes :
- God kept his promise of a deliverer for his people.
- God's ideas about his kingdom often differ from his people's ideas of the same kingdom.
- Jesus lived fully as a human and as God.
- Jesus' ministry and sacrifice changed the world forever.

30 Biblical Insights about the Way God Works
by Laurie Short
What in the world is God doing? It's easy to wonder about this. We live in an unfolding story, and it's hard to hold on when difficult circumstances linger or your deepest prayer hangs in the air, seemingly unanswered. Thankfully the Bible is filled with people who experienced the same thing. They had to learn to trust God's way and timing--and their stories give us insights to live that way too. Mining often-overlooked passages of Scripture, in this 10-week study, Laurie Polich Short has unearthed 30 practical, encouraging gems of wisdom found in the faith and lives of biblical heroes to help you · see more of God's work as it unfolds in your life · have hope in circumstances that previously felt hopeless · be more comfortable--and possibly even excited--to lean into the unknown Here is your compass to living your story well when the way forward is unclear.
Books are $10.
