If you are looking for a place to connect with other ladies and fellowship around God's Word on Sundays, the Ladies Sunday School class is right for you. The only criteria for participating in this group is that you are female. We have an eclectic group of ages and stages in life that blend well together to form relationships, prayer partners, mentors and friends. There is no weekly homework but you can receive an email that gives you a highlight of the upcoming lesson to read ahead if you choose, but this isn't necessary. We understand the insanity of a woman's daily life and seek to encourage and support you wherever you are to grow in Christ's likeness. Join us each Sunday at 9:10 A.M.

Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World
By Melissa Spoelstra
Student Book: $10.00
Led by TBD
Begins September 19, 2017
When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In many ways we live in an unstable world where marriages fail, bank accounts run low, friendships end, and the everyday demands of a fast-paced life get us down. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start? Jeremiah offers women hope for living in an uncertain world by learning to navigate the challenges and circumstances of their lives. This six-week study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us.
What Women Fear: Walking in Faith that Transforms
By Angie Smith
Student Book: Please buy your own copy in the format that you prefer: http://a.co/d0BJEmL
Led by TBD
Begins September 19, 2017
A woman's faith in God is challenged by the first question Satan asks Eve in the Bible: "Did God really say you can’t eat from any tree in the garden?" That seed of doubt and the story it begins to unfold breed a concept of fear still haunting each of us on some level every day-the idea that our actions could ruin something beautiful, and God might not have control of things.
In What Women Fear, acclaimed writer and speaker Angie Smith admits, "fear is a major part of my testimony" and talks openly about her treatment for anxiety as a child. Giving a voice to the problem, she says, "I truly believe every single one of us struggles with some type of fear, whether it's fear of flying or fear of being 'found out.' Maybe you don’t worry about dying, but you get sick thinking about the fact that you might fail."
Rather than suggesting that those who truly love the Lord would never fear, Angie blends her own experiences with those of men and women from throughout Scripture to help us start dealing more effectively with these true, human emotions. Whether it’s a constant "What if?," a nagging fear of abandonment or betrayal, fear of your own or someone else’s death, fear of trusting God's plan, or even the fear that God's existence is a lie, Angie will walk you through stories of others who have simultaneously loved God and struggled with fear. Join Angie and discover how to let Jesus redeem this struggle as only He can, that He will be glorified, and you will be transformed!
