Contact Lori Walle at 405-213-4725 or LWalleSL@aol.com if you would like to be added to one of these groups.

Come As You Are Class in A121

Led by Lisa Conklin, January 11-March 1, 6:30-7:30 PM

Watch the videos for Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life by Jennifer Rothschild, followed by discussion of the videos. You’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. This kind of living will bring us and others around us peace and true prosperity.

Anchor for the Soul: Deeply Loved by God in A119

Led by Sara Alcon, January 11-March 1, 6:30-7:30 PM

When the storm hits, if my faith depends on the strength of my love for God, it will fail. But it doesn’t. It depends on the strength of God’s love for me. In this textual discussion study we will look at examples through the Bible and in our own lives each week. No study guide needed; just bring your Bible!

He’s Where the Joy Is: Getting to Know the Captivating God of the Trinity (videos by Tara-Leigh Cobble of The Bible Recap)

Led by Robin Poteet, June 8-August 31, 6:30-7:30 PM

WINTER/SPRING SMALL GROUP Bible Studies

Three new small group studies will be offered this winter on Wednesday mornings beginning January 11. A fourth study, Isaiah: Striving Less and Trusting God More, will be offered from March 8-April 26 (registration will be in February). Childcare for infants through age five will be provided.

Abide: A Study of 1, 2, & 3 John (videos by Jen Wilkin)

Led by Mary Ann Rosenbalm at MRCC, January 11-April 5, 9:30-11 AM

How can we hold onto assurance of our faith? How can we discern the truth from a lie? How can we know God loves us? The apostle John reminds an early church (and us) facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it.

Better: A Study of Hebrews (videos by Jen Wilkin)

Led by Debbie Petersen at MRCC, January 11-April 5, 9:30-11 AM

Explore how the entirety of Scripture points to Jesus Christ. Discover how He fulfills and completes the work of angels, prophets, priests, and ceremonial laws, establishing a better covenant.

From Beginning to Forever: A Study of the Grand Narrative of Scripture (videos by Elizabeth Woodson)

Led by Denise McGinnis at MRCC, January 11-March 8, 9:30-11 AM

Too often we have a fragmented understanding of parts of the Bible. This may cause us to miss God’s bigger story–His redemption and restoration of the entire world and how He invites us to be a part of it.

Register here by December 28 for Winter Small Group Bible Studies on Wednesday AM. Contact Lori Walle at 405-213-4725 or LWalleSL@aol.com with any questions.

CWBS (CENTER FOR WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES)

“Back to the beginning…a study of Genesis”

CWBS is a Thursday morning small group women’s Bible study open to all ladies in the community who desire an in-depth study of God’s word. If you are looking for a welcoming, affirming place to dig into the Word with other women who desire a deeper relationship with God, we invite you to join us. CWBS offers a wonderful combination of accountability, support, and fellowship.

For those who claim to be followers of Christ, our story starts well before Jesus lived among us.  The book of Genesis takes us back to our beginning…created by the Creator of the universe to bear His image and live in relationship with Him. 

Written into the story of creation, however, is the account of our fall from God’s perfect intention. Sin has threatened to separate us from our Creator and Father from the very beginning. But God wastes no time in calling His people back to Him.

Genesis introduces us to the descendants of Abraham – the Israelites – a people chosen by God to be His instrument for blessing all people on earth. As we study through Genesis together, the Israelites will help us see our own desperate need for God’s patience, faithfulness, and salvation. How blessed we are to be His children! 

This year we are going back to the Old Testament to study the life of David, along with Samuel and Saul, through the books of I and II Samuel. Each of these men was uniquely chosen by God. Chosen to play an important role in God’s study of redeeming His chosen people. Most of our study will center around the life of David, described in the Bible as a man after God’s own heart. High praise for a man whose heart struggled with doubt, fear, selfishness, sexual purity, and even premeditated murder. What lessons can we learn from David’s relationship with God? What hope does His story give us for finding forgiveness and redemption?

Meeting Times & Registration

Small groups meet weekly on Thursday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00. Childcare for infants through age five is provided during all of our CWBS studies and monthly luncheons. Please pre-register for childcare when you sign up for CWBS.

Our study of Genesis will run from September 8-November 10 and resumes on January 12, with an extended break during the holiday season. This 21-week study concludes for the year on March 30. Study guides are $10 and may be purchased on the first day of class.

For more information, contact Diana Perkins at bperkokc@aol.com or 405-255-1900.

Register here for the CWBS study of Genesis by August 21.
