Most of our Bible studies will meet via Zoom this winter. However, please take note of the special on-campus option below!
Precepts Study of the Gospel of John, Part 2 -"The Light of the World" and Part 3 - "The True Vine - One With Him"
Part two of John focuses on Walking with Jesus, who called Himself "the Light of the World". We will see that John's Gospel is written in such a way that we will experience ourselves that He is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and that in believing that, we will have life eternal. We will discover the Truth for ourselves as we dig into this jewel of the Bible. What is His call on us women today who claim to be walking with Him? Are we too called to be "fishers of men? Has he truly called us as well as those 12 men to be disciples? We will discover together what is Jesus' call to us in our day and how He equips us to serve Him as we endeavor to walk with Him.
In the final study of the Gospel of John we will find some of the most enlightened teaching to be found in the Word of God. While Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell us what Jesus did, John tells us Who Jesus is, how He reveals Himself, and the intimacy that belongs to the child of God with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We will also see what Jesus meant when He promised us abundance of life. Are you experiencing that? This final part of our study of the Gospel of John does not require that you have studied parts one or two. Come join us as we discover the truth for ourselves.
Join us for this Precepts study of The Gospel of John, Part two and three - "The Light of the World" and "The True Vine - One With Him" facilitated by Jeanne Conners. John's Gospel is considered to be the most profound of the four Gospels - the most precious jewel of God's word. Join us as we meet by Zoom every Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. beginning Jan. 4, 2021.
Take Courage: A Study of Haggai
By Jennifer Rothschild
Do you ever feel like the happy ending of your story is a million miles away? Then you know how the Jewish people felt when they returned to their wrecked land after exile and began rebuilding the temple. They were distracted, discouraged, and ready to throw in the towel. But the prophet Haggai reminded them they could find courage in the God who had never left them. We too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story. In this seven-session study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime
Join us for Jennifer Rothschild's Bible study, "Take Courage: A Study of Haggai" a seven-week study of the book of Haggai facilitated by Bonnie Shields. We will meet January 6 & 20, February 3 & 17, and March 3, 17, and 31, 2021. from 9:15 to 11:30 a.m. in the CLC Fireside room.
We Over Me
Facilitated by Marcelle Ciampa
We will be looking at letters of hope from the book of Revelation using Whitney Capp's We Over Me study. We will look at the uniquely designed plan and purpose God had for the church and the role He wants us each to play.
Join us as we study Whitney Capp's Bible study "We Over Me" on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom beginning January 13, 2021.
We Over Me
Facilitated by Pat Musselwhite
God has a purpose and a plan that He uniquely accomplishes in and through the church. In this nine-session study, we will look at the first three chapters of Revelation and find a wake-up call that shows the truth of God’s desire for the church. Join us as we renew our love for the church, see the church in a new light and discover how the health and effectiveness of the church is closely tied to our spiritual health.
Join us as we study Whitney Capp's Bible study "We Over Me" every other Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. beginning January 12, 2021.
Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.
Join us as we study Priscilla Shirer’s new seven-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now during unprecedented times!
This Bible Study will be facilitated by Lynn Dill and will meet by ZOOM every other Wednesday at 7:00 pm. beginning February 3, 2021.
Other Small Group Opportunities
As we look around today, you will notice that we are divided along so many lines; party lines, poverty lines and, especially, racial lines. That division has crept into our churches as well. But that is not how God designed the Church. In this round table group, we will study how God designed the Church, a united and UNDIVIDED body, and recognize how Satan has forced us into our separate corners.
Join us as we look at Peter in Acts 10, to identify and pray together over our own blinders and obstacles that keep us from living as one body in Christ.
This group will be facilitated by Felecia Dewing and Beth Haley and will meet in person on Thursday nights (ideally in person, if not, via Zoom) at 6:00 p.m. beginning February 11, 2021.
