Ladies Bible Study
We invite you to attend our Ladies’ Bible Study every Tuesday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The fall semester begins on September 12 with an introduction and tea. The study will conclude on December 5th. Note: There will be no Ladies Bible Study on October 31 due to our fall break. Also we will have a Thanksgiving recess on November 21.
The study guide for the fall is The Son of David: Seeing Jesus in the Historical Books by Nancy Guthrie.
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven. – Matthew 6:10
What kind of king and what kind of kingdom are we asking for when we pray this prayer Jesus taught us to pray? In this study of the Old Testament Historical Books—Joshua through Esther—we will see the kingdom of God not only as it once was, but also as it is now, and as it will be one day.
Nancy Guthrie’s book is our guide for ten lessons as we study the history of the people of God from the time they entered the Promised Land through a series of failed kings, exile, and finally their return to await the true King. We will see Jesus as:
- the greater Joshua who leads his people into rest;
- the greater Boaz who has done all that is necessary to redeem;
- the greater King who will sit on David’s throne forever;
- the greater Restorer who is building his church from ruined stones.
Please join us for this study as we fellowship, pray, and learn together.
