MONDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDIES The Double Decker Tour of the Covenants Teacher: Gretchen Lowery, Room: E205

Ever wanted to better understand what God wants to do for you, to be confident in His power to accomplish it and to know how to “wait” for it? Andrew Murray said, “To many a man, who has never thought much of the Covenant, a true and living faith in it would mean the transformation of his whole life.” Whether you have never considered the word “covenant” or you have been actively seeking to understand its full impact, join us on an action-packed double-decker bus tour of the Covenants and learn to trust God as your covenant partner. Three levels of homework are available each week—from none to deep!

Gideon (Priscilla Shirer Study) Teacher: Teri Hicks, Room: E105

Ever feel insufficient? Could it be that your weaknesses are the keys that unlock God’s strength? Through a look at the life of Gideon, you can discover that instead of ignoring, neglecting or trying to escape your weaknesses, you can see them as the gifts, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of His strength.

Pursuing a Blessed Life Teacher: Linda Compton, Room: B133

In this life-changing class, you will learn what it means to live a life that is pleasing to God. Is your life merely outward conformance to commands, or does it go deeper—to your very heart? In this study of the Beatitudes, you will gain a better understanding of Christlike character. You will learn what Jesus says about anger, keeping your word, turning the other cheek and loving your enemies. Most importantly, you will see that it is the power of the Holy Spirit that enables us to lead a godly and rewarding life.

WIDOW 2 WIDOW We have a wonderful group of widows who have a very active group. Fall events will be available at the women’s patio table starting September 1.

Crazy Love

The Inheritance – A Beth Moore Study for Shea and Cactus Campus Moms

Teachers: Brooke Hellestrae and Sherrie Allison

Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. The answer is not working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts, but it is falling in love with God. Once you encounter His love, you will never be the same, because when you are wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

When is the last time you just let go of the reigns in your own life and said, “You know what, I am going with you, God?”Are you ready for a wild ride? You aren’t ready for a wild ride if you are the one driving! The inheritance God has for each of us is amazing! Come and learn what it means to live and walk in the lines that have fallen for you in pleasant places. Learn what it means to really live.

Daniel

Help and Hope for the Long-Distance Race of Parenting

Teacher: Lyn Arnold

Do you desire to live a life full of integrity and honesty in the world we live in today? This study of Daniel teaches and models for us how to develop enduring integrity in a worldly culture. Daniel faced pressures and temptations similar to those that Christians encounter today, yet made an impact on his people because he had a relationship with God and trusted Him with his life.

Having a Mary Spirit Teacher: Charlotte Skaff

Do you long to please God, but your spirit constantly battles your flesh? This book is a must read for every woman who desires the abundant joy that God offers. Learn scriptural tools that will transform your heart. The class will be interactive, helping you to achieve a “holy makeover.” Bring your sense of humor, and discover how to live a “Mary” life.

Jesus, Israel and Prophecy Teacher: Cathy Wilson

Jesus, Israel, and prophecy—are they connected? Yes! We will study Jesus’ life and the culture into which He was born and understand how Israel’s destiny is wrapped up in Jesus and what that means to us! Our study will cover Jesus’ first coming and His second coming. We will seek to understand the big picture of the Bible. A study of Jesus, Israel, and prophecy lays the foundation for understanding the entire Bible.

Moving on After Moving In Teacher: Susan Miller

This is the place to be when you are new in town! Join us for a powerful, hands-on study using biblical principles and practical application to help women who are going through the transition and adjustment of moving find the courage to put down roots all over again.

Based on the book After the Boxes are Unpacked, the class materials are designed to minister to the heart of newcomers.

Romans – The New Testament Book That Transforms Lives! Teachers: Polly Wick and Joan Lazaer

Join us for an interactive class on the book of Romans. Of all the New Testament letters, Romans is the broadest in scope and deepest in insight focusing on personal transformation. Ray Stedman’s book Reason to Rejoice will encourage us to move from a place of condemnation and sin to a place of reconciliation and righteousness.

Understanding the Anger of God: A Study of Micah, Nahum and Habakkuk (Precept Study)

Teacher: Lauren Locker

Many voices today push moms to do certain things or parent in certain ways. This class will take us to God’s Word to discern His will for our lives and our children’s lives. We will better understand issues such as our need for people, how formulas don’t always work, the sin problem in ourselves and our children, sacrifice and selfishness. We will learn how to live purposefully under the Holy Spirit’s leadership. Join with other women and find encouragement, help and understanding. You are not alone and there is hope!

TUESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDIES September 10 – November 12, 6:30-8:30pm Living a Life Worthy of the Gospel Teachers: Lisa Harman and Berta Myers, Room: E201

The Gospel should influence everything we believe and do. It transforms our lives, passions, purpose and gives us a clear understanding of Who we believe and what that means as we consider the needs of people around the world including issues of hunger, poverty and injustice. Join us as we study Timothy Keller’s book Grace Changes Everything and take a good look at how the Gospel changes our hearts, community and how we live in our world!

Moving On After Moving In Teacher: Jill Hoekstra, Room: E113

This is the place to be when you are new in town! Join us for a powerful, hands-on study using biblical principles and practical application to help women who are going through the transition and adjustment of moving find the courage to put down roots all over again.

Based on the book After the Boxes are Unpacked, the class materials are designed to minister to the heart of newcomers.

Walking with the Light of the World – John Part 1 (Precept Study) Teacher: Sandra Henry, Room: E105

How well do you know the Son of God? Are you convinced that what He said about Himself Is true? From beginning to end, John reveals Jesus as the Son of God. From chapters 1-11, learn to walk in Jesus as Light of the World and your relationship with Him will become more intimate. Prayerfully consider this inductive study which will equip you with study tools to learn the truth for yourself. No videos.

WEDNESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDIES September 11 – December 10, 6:30-8pm

Teacher: Mele Simonson

No More Perfect Moms

It is vital for Christ-followers to know what the Bible says about the anger of God, especially in light of current world events and God’s plans for the future! In this class you will learn a powerful way to study and understand the Bible yourself.

Teacher: Julie Lewis, Room: E113

Who Does God Say That I Am? Teacher: Pat Sloan

One area we never stop growing in is our understanding of who God says we are and how to live in the fullness of these truths. We will take a deep look at the amazing grace and riches of our identity in Christ. This study will encourage both seasoned and new believers. Join us for a wonderful time of growth, discussion, and discovery.

Being a mother is not for those who display symptoms of the “Perfection Infection.” There is simply no such thing as a perfect mom. And there are no such things as perfect kids, perfect bodies, perfect marriages, or even perfect meals. Jill Savage challenges every mom to exchange her vision of being a “perfect mother” for God’s beautiful grace in order to learn to love her real, but imperfect, life.

They hand out bulletins, welcome guests on campus in strategic locations, and provide directions to buildings and facilities as needed. Ushers serve during a regular worship service to receive the offering and pass communion. If you would like to serve on the First Impression Team, please email connect@scottsdalebible.com.
