The Good Portion: The Doctrine of Scripture for Every Woman by Keri FolmarWednesday Evening

$13.00

Patty Demmon, patty.demmon@gmail.com, 703-861-5575

The Good Portion is a series written specifically for women to immerse themselves in the depths of Christian doctrine. God created us to enjoy knowing Him – there is always so much more to be discovered and enjoyed!

The Bible speaks about itself in evocative language – a light to the path, a balm to the flesh, sweeter than honey. It is more than a formula – it is the heartbeat of a Christian. This first title in The Good Portion series addresses the nature of the Scriptures as God’s revelation and discusses the characteristics of the Bible. Class time will include leader-led group discussion.

A Life Beyond Amazing by David JeremiahWednesday Evening

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Jan. 10 (12 weeks)

$9.75

The traits of Jesus demonstrated in His life were traits empowered by the Spirit of God who filled Him. When Jesus returned to Heaven, He sent His Spirit to indwell all His true followers so they could display the same character in their lives – not for their benefit alone but to show the world the kind of life God intended us to enjoy. The apostle Paul called these traits the “fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-23). In this study, Dr. Jeremiah explores each of the nine traits of a Spirit-filled life as outlined by the apostle Paul – traits that produce a life beyond amazing.

Paul wrote to Titus a faithful leader helping to establish structure in a young church, encouraging him to help Christians put their doctrine into practice—to live in such a way that would “make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.” Paul offers Titus guidance about choosing Christian leaders and growing godly church members. But this study isn’t just for church leaders. Paul’s words inspire all Christians to express their faith through the good works that God has prepared for his people. Titus may be a small book but it is big in gospel truth and the grace that teaches all of us “to live upright, self controlled and godly lives” while we wait for Christ’s return.

Keri Folmar is the wife of John Folmar (pastor of the United Christian Church of Dubai) and the mother of three teenagers. She loves teaching women’s Bible studies and has written three. In this study of Philippians, the truths of God’s Word are brought to life with the inductive method of observation, interpretation and application. We will see how the themes of joy and God’s glory and grace abound in the book of Philippians. Keri will take us as disciples deep into the text, the heart of Paul, and the mind of Christ, then deeper into our own hearts as we pursue Christ for joy in all things.

Forty years in the desert had taught God’s people how to follow and not wander. Now, in sight of the Promised Land, Moses knew they faced the risk of settling down and getting comfortable—only to wander and not follow. Nearing his death, Moses gives the Israelites a new path to faithful living: remember and reaffirm. Remember God’s unwavering presence with them in the desert, and reaffirm their commitment to being His people, even when life got more comfortable. Whether you are a wanderer or a follower, Moses’ last words will help you remain rooted in God’s love.

No Other Gods by Kelly MinterThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Jan. 11 (15 weeks)

$14.50

Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, they are taking up space meant for Him alone. In this study, learn to identify the functional gods you are serving daily and the lies they tell. Only when you learn to dethrone modern-day idols can you pursue a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus.

2 Corinthians, LifeChange by the NavigatorsThursday Evening

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Jan. 11 (15 weeks)

Abby Stocking, abbysox@mac.com

The church in Corinth was divided. Some followed the gospel and others believed the teachings of false apostles. Paul wrote a second letter to the Corinthians to defend the gospel of Christ by reminding his readers that what he taught was God’s truth. In doing this, Paul provides an example to Christians today who must defend their own leadership in times of trouble. We will seek to understand the paradoxes Paul presents and how we can know God’s grace that is sufficient for us, too.
