Psalm 23: The Shepherd With Me (videos by Jennifer Rothschild)

Offered on Zoom and led by Cheryl Burke, March 10-June 2, 7-8 PM

Every woman longs for someone to protect and care for her–someone to guide her when she’s not sure of her next steps, to provide rest when she’s worn out, to walk with her when the valley is dark. God is the Good Shepherd whose companionship provides the comfort and confidence every woman needs.

CWBS (CENTER FOR WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES)

A Study of Ephesians

Lessons from the Lives of David, Saul, and Samuel

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. Unfortunately groups are full for the 2020-21 year, but watch for an expanded selection of groups in Fall 2021!

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 is provided during all of our CWBS studies and luncheons. Please pre-register for childcare when you sign up for CWBS. We also offer optional extended childcare twice during our study. For $5/child, you can leave your little ones with MRCC babysitters until 1:00 and enjoy some extra free time.

Our study of 1 and 2 Samuel will run from September 5-November 21 and resumes on January 9, with an extended break during the holiday season. This 23-week study concludes for the year on April 9.

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