With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes! With my lips I declare all the rules of your mouth. In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word. Psalm 119: 10-16

SOLID GROUND: BOOK OF JUDGES (Tuesday mornings, 9:30 – 11:30)
The title for the book of judges means deliverers or saviors, and this book teaches us what it looks like when we try to deliver or save ourselves. We’re grateful – and relieved—to learn that the foremost theme of the book is that of God’s power and covenant mercy in graciously delivering the Israelites from the consequences of their failures. Come join us as we make sense of what this little-studied book offers in understanding the character of a loving, powerful God. We promise harrowing battles, bizarre retributions, and catastrophic sacrifices; some of the most fascinating characters in Scripture reside in this book. The format is a soft lecture (questions, speculations, corrections welcomed) with no homework but lots of stimulating discussion. Come and join a group of vibrant, caring women who love to learn God’s word.
Teachers: Libby Buchanan and Tina Caswell
Hostess: Sharon Weiss
Cost: There is no cost for this class.
DISCIPLESHIP BIBLE STUDIES: JAMES (Monday nights, 6:45 – 8:45 PM, Tuesday mornings, 9:30 – 11:30 AM and Tuesday nights, 6:30 – 8:15 PM)
This September, we will begin a verse-by-verse study through the book of James, embracing in the meekness of wisdom what it means to count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds (1:2). Join us as we learn to live out the depth of meaning behind His promise - Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him (1:12). In our discipleship Bible studies, the teaching time is followed by discussion and prayer in a smaller discipleship group so that we may flesh out the application and walk through accountability.
