Women's Tuesday Night Study
Our Tuesday evening group meets on site every other week at 7:00 pm. Our current study is in the book of Philippians. Click the link to Christianbook.com for a synopsis of Philippians: Living for Christ by Lydia Brownback, or to order your book online: Christianbook.com.
The book of Philippians describes the pain the apostle Paul endured as a follower of Christ. Writing to the church in Philippi, Paul declares that nothing will stop him from rejoicing in the Lord--not even imprisonment--because Jesus was Paul's whole reason for living. In this ten-week study of Paul's letter to the Philippians, learn how to find peace in Christ through challenges and press on for the sake of the gospel.
Lydia Brownback (MAR, Westminster Theological Seminary) is passionate about teaching God's word. She is the author of several books in addition to the Flourish Bible Study series, including the On-the-Go Devotionals for Women, Finding God in My Loneliness, and Sing a New Song.

"The book of Proverbs uncovers the foundation of wisdom, marks out the paths that make us wise, and points us to the ultimate source of all true understanding: Jesus Christ. Helping make sense of a unique book, this guide explains the biblical text with clarity and passion - uncovering its wise instruction for godly living that glorifies God and leads to blessing for his people.
"Over the course of 12 weeks, this study explores the book of Proverbs and helps you
- Ask thoughtful questions to spur discussion

Our 2022 Women's Retreat was a time of sweet fellowship and teaching around our theme, "I am weak, but He is strong" centered on 2 Corinthians 12:9-10: "But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
Thank you to all those who contributed their time, talents and loving service to allow a time set apart to have our hearts knit together in love for each other and most importantly, for directing our hearts to worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
A BIG thanks to all those who participated to make our 2021 Women's Retreat a memorable and edifying time of worship, teaching and fellowship in Jesus Christ, the Author, Sustainer and Finisher of our faith.
