The Shelter of God's Promises 


Wednesday Evening Study

Where do you turn for shelter in the worst storms of life? You know God’s promises, but are they for you, are they for now, are they for this? If you look to your circumstances alone, it may seem that God has forgotten you. But He hasn’t. He can’t. And He wouldn’t even if He could. God is the only promise maker who is always a promise keeper. And God’s promises will never fail you!
In The Shelter of God’s Promises, gifted Bible teacher and inspiring Women of Faith speaker Sheila Walsh searches Scripture for what God has promised us, what God’s promises mean, and how encounters with Christ are the eternal fulfillment of His unrelenting commitment to us. Through vulnerable storytelling, new insights, and an in-depth Bible study, Sheila offers powerful, heart-filled teaching on ten bedrock promises of God, providing the foundation for daily confidence, joy, hope—and shelter.

Discerning the Voice of God

Thursday Morning Study
A decade ago, Priscilla Shirer authored 
Discerning the Voice of God, and since then God has continued to grow, teach, and challenge her in her walk with Him. This revised and expanded edition reflects that growth through new stories, illustrations, and exercises. Through 7 sessions, discover the root to clear and daily communication with God—humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.

The Power of Praying for Your Children


Thursday Morning Study
You’ll never be a perfect parent, but you can be a praying parent. There is nothing you can do that will have a higher return on investment. You don’t become a praying parent by default; you do it by design, by desire, by discipline.  Your prayers have the power to shape the destiny of your children and your children’s children.  You can leave a legacy for generations to come.  Join us as we explore together the why’s and how’s of effective praying for your children.  Each lesson will stand alone, so you may join at any time.

“Bible in One Year”

Kickoff meeting: Wednesday 1/15, 6:30-8:00 PM

Have you tried to read through the Bible and failed? We know the feeling! You’re much more likely to be successful if you have a friend to do it with! This program will pair you up with another woman, you’ll use the YouVersion App for the daily reading assignments which include helpful commentary, and you’ll be able to comment on what you have read. We’ll also have a
meeting in the evening once/month for group discussion. 

Lead by Kristin Guthrie and Shelly Summerville.
