A Study in Philippians

Women in the Word

Taught by William Carpenter • Commons September 8–November 17 This letter was written to the church at Philippi by the Apostle Paul, while he was imprisoned. He writes to encourage these believers and to spur them on their walk with Christ. In the class, we explore Paul’s writing to the church at Philippi as we seek to gain insight into Paul’s theology and heart for the church at Philippi.

MISSIONS

For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the Gospel’s will save it. (Mark 8:35)

Women’s Kairos November 14-17, a team will take the gospel into McPherson women’s prison in Newport. This Kairos weekend is a powerful model that has proven effectiveness in empowering a Christian community within the prison. Ways to help: pray; donate ($10 purchases a meal for an inmate); or buy cookies (sturdy, must NOT contain fruit or be coated in powdered sugar). Contact Kim Cook-Wilson (501.517.5754) with any questions.

City Center Conversations On Tuesday, October 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the Robinson Center William Grant Still Grand Ballroom, City Center Conversations will host author Rebecca McLaughlin. In her book, Confronting Christianity, Rebecca McLaughlin confronts 12 questions that keep many from taking Christianity seriously such as: Are Christians anti-science? Is the Bible homophobic? Isn’t Christianity demeaning to women? This conversation will take those topics and show how Christ is always at the center.
