Fall/Winter News and Updates
We are pleased to announce the addition of a new monthly Saturday morning track for those whose schedules make it difficult to attend the Tuesday night meetings. Our two groups will cover the same content but will have separate study schedules (see below). Choose the group that best suits your needs and click here to sign up!
Our new Fall/Winter study is Disciplines of a Godly Woman by Barbara Hughes.
"Discipline. Maybe discipline seems like a hard word to you―implying nothing but challenge and duty. Yet most of us see the value in cultivating spiritual disciplines, and we long to be more consistent in our relationship with God, even in the midst of our busy lives. Combining biblical teaching, poignant stories, and insightful reflection questions, Barbara Hughes explores 15 vital disciplines in this classic book―helping us to mature as godly Christian women and giving meaningful shape to our lives."
Barbara Hughes has supported her husband Kent's pastoral ministry for over 40 years while also raising four children. She is the author of Disciplines of a Godly Woman and together with Kent, has also authored Disciplines of a Godly Family and Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome.

Women's Wednesday Morning Study
The Wednesday morning group will meet every other week at 9:30 am. Note: We will be meeting in a new location in Del Cerro. Please contact Ruthann c/o email@example.com for location information.
The Wednesday study will be Proverbs: A 12-Week Study, another in the "Knowing the Bible" series, this one by Lydia Brownback and Dane C. Ortlund, edited by J.I. Packer.
"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
- Show how each passage unveils the gospel
- Tie the text in with the whole story of Scripture
- Illuminate the doctrines taught in each passage
