Second Monday of the month, beginning September 13, 1pm OR 6pm, A4
Mindful Women (MW) grew out of a desire to continue the fellowship and spiritual growth experienced at a winter women's retreat. MW has become a life-group, sponsors an annual church-wide women's retreat and continues to welcome new members. Mindful Women gathers during the school year to share their faith and each other's company. MW meets jointly for quarterly dinner meetings and on alternate months in small afternoon or evening groups for Bible and Faith-based study and activities. This year, the group will be reading and discussing, "Walking in the Dust of the Rabbi," by Lois Tverberg. In walking in the dust of Rabbi Jesus, Tverberg challenges readers to follow their Rabbi more closely by re-examining his words in the light of their Jewish context. Doing so will provide a richer, deeper understanding of his ministry, compelling us to live differently, to become more Christ-like. The book is available from multiple sources but is not required for this DVD-based version of the study. Led by Christina Benson, Sue Baxter, and Sue Barnes. Sign up here.
women of the word (wow)
Every other Thursday, September 23 - December 16, 1pm, A4
Women of the Word (WoW) meets biweekly during the school year for Bible study. WoW encourages openness and acceptance of women in each step on their faith journey to live more like Jesus. The study format, typically of a book of the Bible or Biblical/religious leaders, is a combination of reading and guided discussion. WoW offers both in-person and Zoom participation. This fall WoW will be studying 1 Corinthians with the aid of the Life Guide study, "1 Corinthians, The Challenges of Life Together," by Paul Stevens and Dan Williams. As Paul Stevens and Dan Williams lead you through this study on 1 Corinthians, you will see that issues facing the Corinthian church are little different from the ones your church struggles with year after year. Here in 1 Corinthians is a portrait of Christian community not as it was meant to be, but as it often really is. But here too is practical advice for overcoming the challenges of life together. Book is available on Amazon for $8.39. Led by Christina Benson and Sue Baxter. Sign up here.
