SPRING WEDNESDAY NIGHTS
All classes meet at MRCC
Come As You Are Class in A121
Led by Lisa Conklin, March 9-May 25, 6:30-7:30 PM
Watch the videos for God of Deliverance: A Study of Exodus 1-18 by Jen Wilkin, followed by discussion of the videos. The same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we will dwell with and worship Him as the one true God. No study guide to purchase unless you would like to do it on your own.
Take Courage: A Study of Haggai in A119
Led by Cheryl Burke, March 9-June 1, 6:30-7:30 PM
Sometimes the landscapes of our lives feel wrecked, with our hope and purpose in shambles. Like Haggai, we too get distracted and discouraged. However, God’s presence and promises give us courage to press on and trust Him with our story.
SUMMER WEDNESDAY NIGHTS
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
Knowing the triune God better will lead to deeper intimacy and greater joy. After all, He’s where the joy is!

CWBS (CENTER FOR WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDIES)
“Christ: The Everlasting Word,” a study of the gospel of John
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.
Everywhere we turn (or scroll), someone is shouting for our attention. Words come at us fast. . .in the form of facts, opinions, posts, blogs, news, etc. The process of sorting through all the conflicting words can be exhausting. But the gospel of John reveals the only Word that has always been and always will be. Jesus Christ is the everlasting Word. The Word that was with God in the beginning and the Word that brings life and light to all mankind.
John’s gospel is unique from the other 3 gospels and it has so much to offer those that are new to the Bible, as well as those that have studied the stories of Jesus for years. John, a beloved apostle of Jesus, has one goal in mind as a biographer and author. He writes so that “you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” (John 20:31) Join us as we slow down this year and listen to the only Word that truly saves.
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?

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