Zealous for the Lord God Almighty: The Prophets Elijah and Elisha

Led by Michele Cantley

Have you ever wondered why people thought Jesus was the Prophet Elijah returned from the dead?  Why does the Jewish Seder meal of today include the cup of Elijah?  When Jesus fed the 5000, why did the people recall the Prophet Elisha?  Why were Elijah and Elisha specifically called to battle the Israelites’ worship of the Canaanite god Baal? Please join us for a study of 1 Kings 16 to 2 Kings 13 as we delve into the lives of the Prophets Elijah and Elisha and learn about what the Gospels tell us about these prophets of the Old Testament.

Meets Mondays at 10:00 a.m. through Zoom.
No Book required.

 


Who HE Says I Am by Jean Gaffin

Led by  Cindy Reeder

With her characteristic warmth, wisdom, and wit, Jean Gaffin’s Who He Says I Am explores the riches of the believer’s identity in union with Christ by faith. Each chapter touches on a different aspect of Christ in us, the hope of glory, and in that context encourages women primarily, and all believers generally, to live out of this reality, just as Jean did throughout her life. *Books can be ordered through the bookstore!

Meets Tuesdays starting February 16 at 9:30 a.m. in the Chapel. Nursery is available with registration.

Order your book at the Briarwood Bookstore (205-776-5210) or on Amazon.



The Son of David by Nancy Guthrie

Led by Mary Anne Turnbull

What kind of king and what kind of kingdom are we asking for when we pray this prayer Jesus taught us to pray? A study of the Old Testament Historical Books—Joshua through Esther—enables us to see the kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will be one day.

Meets Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall A&B. Nursery is available with registration.
Order your book at the Briarwood Bookstore (205-776-5210) or on amazon.com.

 


The Gospel of Mark

Led by Kristie Harrick

The Gospel of Mark was written to Roman believers walking through severe persecution under Nero. Mark wrote as a pastor to Christians who previously had heard and believed the Gospel. He desired that they have a biographical story of Jesus Christ as Servant of the Lord and Savior of the world in order to strengthen their faith in the face of severe persecution and to teach them what it meant to be His disciples. May this gospel continue to strengthen us and teach us as well.

Meets Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. through Zoom. Audio study will be available online.
No Book required.


Proverbs: The Wise Woman’s Bucket List

Led by Donna Evans

The beauty of God’s Word is that it does indeed work. It works when we obey it and it works when we don’t. God’s word is true-truth, timeless, and unchanging like God Himself. The book of Proverbs is anything BUT “random.” It is instead God’s wisdom from above for living here below, designed to teach us, not just how to make a living, but how to make a life.

Meets Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall A&B. Nursery is available with registration.
Material will be available at the class ($10).



Loving God With All My Heart

Led by Yvonne Welch

Jesus tells us in Matthew 22:37–38, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.” Many times in today’s world we do not love the Lord our God with all of our heart. Instead of having the fruit of the spirit in our lives, such as love , joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, faith and self-control, we have just the opposite. We have hatred, bitterness, depression, fear, anger, anxiety, and a lack of peace in our hearts. These sinful heart attitudes grieve the Holy Spirit in our lives and we really do not love God with all of our heart. Come to this Bible Study as we study together how to have a heart full of love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faith and self-control. Our desire would be to become more like Jesus Christ, to be transformed into His image. Jesus will then give us the grace to “love the Lord our God with all of our heart.”

Meets Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. in the Chapel. Nursery is available with registration.
Material will be available at the class ($10).


Esther

Led by Elizabeth Bondurant and Kristie Harrick

The book of Esther unpacks the intriguing narrative of a Jewish woman and her cousin, Mordecai, who stayed behind in Persia following the exile—and how they were instrumental in saving God’s people in that place. With no mention of God anywhere in the book of Esther, it nonetheless illustrates His sovereignty over all things and His faithfulness to His covenant promises. The story of Esther is perfect guidance for us when we find ourselves in a situation where right and wrong are not so clearly defined and every choice we have seems to be a troubling mixture of good and bad.

Meets Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. in G-101. Nursery is available with registration.
