The Mountains Are Calling by Jarrett Stephens
Teacher: Chrissie Dunham | Room: W207

To get the clarity of a spiritual mountaintop experience, you sometimes need to “ascend” from everyday life. Let’s meet God on the summits of Scripture! Discover providence on Mount Moriah, holiness on Mount Sinai, nearness on Mount Olivet, and more.

America at the Crossroads by Kay Arthur
Teacher: Jacqueline McNamer | Room: W204

America at the Crossroads is a precept Bible study that will open your eyes to what is going on, open your ears to hear the call of God, and open your hearts to share with others. Together we’ll learn what the prophets and Bible writers teach us about how to respond to those in need of the truth of God’s Word, how to look at God’s standard for electing leaders, and how to respond to what God calls good. This study is recommended for those who will attend the March for Life in January in Washington, D.C.

The New Inductive Study Series: Praising God through Prayer and Worship by Kay Arthur
Teacher: Marcia Beck | Room: A207
Begins Sept. 25

Discover the psalmist’s heartfelt expressions—in prayer, in confession, in grief, and in praise—of their love for and devotion to God. As you learn to apply the text, your personal prayer times will grow more profound and your worship experiences more fulfilling.

International Women’s Study: Boundaries: How to Set Them—How to Keep Them by June Hunt
Teacher: Bobette Boyd | Room: A203-204

Is someone taking advantage of you? Do you have trouble saying no? Do you think everyone’s need is yours to meet? Boundaries are needed in all areas of our lives, but they can be difficult to establish and also to keep. We’ll look at the dangers of allowing our boundaries to be broken and how we are to respond. Boundaries empower your life, improve your relationships and strengthen your walk with God. Learn and benefit from knowing the biblical truths about boundaries—physically, personally, spiritually and morally—in your life.

Possess the Promise by Jerica Olson
Teacher: Jerica Olson | Room W202

There’s a reason for our freedom. Discover powerful insights as we study the Israelites’ journey from Egypt to the Promised Land. (No book is required for this class. Just bring your Bible.)

The Amazing Collection: The Post Exilic and Poetic Books by Pat Hurley
Teacher: Suzy Bastian | Room: W207

The Post-Exilic books (1 Chronicles through Esther) complete Old Testament History. God proves He is a Promise Keeper as He brings His people back to the land after 70 years in exile. This study details events after the Northern Kingdom (Israel) was conquered and scattered by Assyria and after the Southern Kingdom (Judah) was conquered and exiled to Babylon. We see Persia come to world power and God’s chosen remnant return to the Promised Land to restore their temple and build the wall around their beloved Jerusalem. The Poetical Books (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon) reveal the heart of the nation of Israel and are considered some of the finest literature ever written. It is as if the authors’ very hearts have been opened up for all to see. Pain is not minimized, nor is man’s struggle to understand God downplayed. Questions of suffering are boldly asked; worship is gloriously displayed; wisdom is held in highest esteem; married sexual love is unashamedly portrayed; and philosophy is openly debated.

Faith vs. Weight by Maria Bower
Teacher: Maria Bower | Room: A207

This Christian-based behavior modification program inspires a balanced approach to health and fullness of life. The program is a transformational journey based on faith, behavior modification, nutrition and fitness. Each week, participants are inspired through Scripture and coached through scientifically backed behavior modification techniques to improve their mind-set regarding what is possible when it comes to attaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle through improved nutrition and fitness. Weekly action plans are provided, guiding participants to take an honest look at whether their lifestyle choices are enhancing or undermining all that they are capable of achieving on their faith journey.

Not God Enough by J.D. Greear
Teacher: Anslie Dysart | Room: W208

We like God small. We prefer a God who is safe and domesticated, who thinks as we think, and whom we can manage, predict, and control. A small God is convenient, easy to process, and compatible with the way we think. But what if this small version we’ve created is holding us back from the greatest experience of our lives? The truth is that God is big. Bigger than big. Bigger than any word we have to say big. This study from J.D. Greear will show us that God is truly big enough to handle all our questions, doubts, and fears; He is not silent; He wants to take you from a boring to a bold faith; and He is pursuing you right now. It will change the way to think about your small God.

Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild
Teacher: Carol Lyon | Room: W206

This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life. Explore the depths of God’s compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth. Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.

Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
Teacher: Jenn Smith | Room: W206

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you—unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish Enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

Precept: Daniel Chapters 1–6 by Kay Arthur (coed)
Teacher: Nancy Chapman | Room: W204

Daniel is one of the most amazing, challenging, encouraging books of the Old Testament! If you want your faith strengthened, insight into the future, and how to be God’s light in a dark world, this study is for you! This eight-week study will also give you a proven method for studying any book of the Bible. “The people who know their God will display strength and take action” (Daniel 11:32).

Precept: John Part 2 by Kay Arthur (coed)
Teacher: Linda Sims | Room: A205-206

Join us for an awesome eight weeks studying John chapters 7–11, as we study a portion of the life of our Savior and our relationship to Him as sheep to our Shepherd, but also do an in-depth study of the feasts of Israel. (No pre-requisite is required.)

Register - Tuesday PM


Wednesdays, 9:30–11:30 a.m.
(childcare available at no cost; each class will be assigned a week to serve in childcare)

We do our best to provide childcare to moms who may not otherwise be able to attend a Bible study. A church of our size requires many hands. Each class has a week built in for serving in our childcare rotation. Volunteers will be recruited from each class to help us serve each other by providing the necessary assistance for our paid childcare workers each week. You will not be asked to serve more than once during the semester.

MOMs Study: Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer
Teacher: Shannon Glass & Mentoring Moms | Room: Loft 456

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you—unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish Enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory. (This class is designed for mothers of preschoolers.)

Breaking Free by Beth Moore
Teacher: Leah Neale | Room: W208

This in-depth Bible study leads you through Isaiah 61:1–4 to discover the transforming power of Christian freedom by drawing parallels between the captive Israelites and the spiritual strongholds in our lives. No matter what lifestage you’re in or struggles you’re going through, if where you are isn’t where you want to be, don’t stay there. Break free.

Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild
Teacher: Gerry Roy | Room: Connection Room

This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life. Explore the depths of God’s compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth. Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.

Lord, Change My Attitude by James MacDonald
Teacher: Starlene Calahan | Room: W206

What does God think about attitudes? Study examples from the Israelites’ journey out of Egypt to show that attitudes can affect whether someone stays in the wilderness or enjoys the blessings of the Promised Land. Learn how you can put off attitudes God hates and put on those He honors: from complaining to thankfulness, from coveting to contentment, from criticizing to love, from doubting to faith, from rebellion to submission.

What Matters Most by Karen Ehman
Teacher: Carol Young | Room: W207

The world has always been full of trials, disappointments, temptations, fractured friendships, and financial hardships. Yet Paul’s letter to the Philippians claims we can discover contentment and joy in the midst of it all by prioritizing what matters most—Christ. Study the ever-relevant letter to the Philippians to deepen your relationship with Jesus, turn your worries into worship, and develop Gospel-centered tools for navigating relational conflict.

In The Beginning (A Class Designed for New Moms of Infants)
Teacher: Carmen Smith | Room: Creation Station

This class is uniquely designed to meet the specific needs of first-time moms with new babies (birth–1 year). The teaching team includes registered nurses and a certified lactation specialist. Each week you will also have the opportunity to weigh your baby. Topics are planned with your needs in mind. Biblically based principles, along with practical advice, fill the discussions that pertain to relationship building, nutrition and fitness, organizational tips, and making memories with your baby.

Finding I Am by Lysa TerKeurst
Room: Prayer Tower

What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it. Visit the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study, we will be trading feelings of emptiness and depletion for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.

Teachers:
Mentor Moms Room: B239

You can’t do it all—“working moms” know this firsthand. If you feel overwhelmed from the pressure of balancing work and family, then join us this fall for an hour each week as we gather to share, pray, and be coached by women who have successfully navigated the role of “working mother” and found peace of mind. If God has called you to this role, then allow us to come alongside you and offer some practical equipping and encouragement for your journey.

Stronger Women – 6:45-8:00 p.m.
by Dr. Brooke Jones, Founder of Stronger than Espresso
Teacher: Stephanie Parker Room: B241

Stronger Women brings God’s healing to deep unspoken wounds, refocusing faith, restoring hope, igniting passion and purpose. Abusive experiences leave wounds lasting decades after the trauma of abuse is over. Survivors often move on, but are left overwhelmed by shame, fear, low self-esteem and powerlessness. This study helps survivors build resilience and healing through self-reflection and self-awareness.
