If you plan to join this study, be sure to order the 2017 edition of the book, which includes the study guide. Email email@example.com to sign up and receive updates and information for this study.
Why is it easier to obey God than to
Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. Before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives. We ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?”
During such a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a thorough Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and in Trusting God he shares the fruit of that study. As you explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and even the details of your life, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts.

Women's Wednesday Morning Study
Our new Wednesday morning study is The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges, beginning April 28 at 9:30
am. If you’re new to the Wednesday group, be sure and order your book in time
to come with Lesson 1 completed for the first meeting. We'll be using the 2016 edition which includes a study guide. (Click here if you need to order the book: The Pursuit of Holiness.)
Important Note: We will augment the study questions in the book with additional questions for a more in-depth study. These questions will be posted for download in the schedule below on this web page as they become available. Be sure and check back as you prepare for each new lesson.
God commands His people, "Be holy, for I am holy." But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. That's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In this spiritual growth classic, Jerry Bridges helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do--and where we need to accept responsibility. Whether you're just beginning your pursuit of holiness or continuing your journey, these timeless principles and guidelines will challenge you to joyfully obey God's command of holiness.

Women of Hope, the Women's Ministry of Pacific Hope Church, is part of the entire discipleship ministry of Pacific Hope Church. Under the direction and oversight of the Elders, Women of Hope is led by a team of women who meet regularly for the sake of accountability, leadership development, prayer, and planning. We exist to encourage and equip women to think and live according to the Word of God. Our desire is that every woman would know Christ personally and fulfill the Lord's requirement “to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God.” (Micah 6:8).
Foundations of Hope
Based on the mandate found in Titus 2, Women of Hope launched a mentoring ministry in January 2015. The aim of this ministry is to equip women in these four foundational areas:
- Walk: Personal Bible study and prayer
- Home: Being busy at home as a single, wife and/or mom
- Doctrine: Spiritual life and biblical womanhood
- Fellowship: Hospitality and mentoring other women.
Through monthly small group meetings, mentors help women establish relationships with other women, learn to think Biblically, apply Biblical principles to relationships and circumstances, grow in godliness, and grow in their love for and service to the church.
Because these groups involve progressive teaching and mentoring, sign-ups are limited to the beginning of each two-year cycle. We currently have no start date scheduled for 2020, but if you are interested in the next session, please email email@example.com.
