Trustworthy: Overcoming Our Greatest Struggles to Trust God


 

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, Lysa TerKeurst honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

No Other Gods 


 

Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. Yet our loved ones, Instagram, busy seasons of work, motherhood, or ministry can also become rivals to our relationship with God. Before we know it, we’re missing the joy of Jesus as our heart’s ultimate treasure. This 8-session study by Kelly Minter will help us to identify functional gods we may be unknowingly serving and to discover that Jesus can do what no other God can.

Sermon on the Mount


 

The Sermon on the Mount articulates what the life of a Christ-follower should look like, asking us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? In this study by Jen Wilkin, we’ll examine the words of Jesus in depth as He challenges us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification.

Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath 


Take in a deep breath before the activities of fall move into full-throttle mode. This 5-session study by Priscilla Shirer on operating from a place of rest will help. For August, at our Wednesday Night Ladies Bible study gathering, will explore the concept of Sabbath as not just a command, but a gift from God.
