What happens when Jesus, knowing crucifixion awaits Him, prepares to enter Jerusalem? How does He spend those final days? Handle His adversaries? What does He teach in the temple? And just what happens when Jesus dies and rises from the dead? These are important facts we need to know for ourselves, precepts for life that will prepare us for what lies ahead, and equip us to fulfill His calling on our lives. These are truths, prophecies, that seem ready to rise on the horizon of history. Precept Upon Precept® Bible Studies take about 45 minutes to an hour of daily personal study.

Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World by Melissa SpoelstraThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Jan. 10 to April 4


Kate Grefenstette,

When we look around at today’s world, hope usually isn’t the first word that comes to mind. In the Book of Jeremiah, we find God calling out to His people with a message of hope—a message that intentional living is possible even in an unstable world. But how do we do this? Where do we start? This study examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their wills to God’s and put their hope in Him alone. Combining rich study of the Book of Jeremiah with practical life application that resonates with the realities and experiences of today’s women, this study inspires all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us. Class time will include video teaching and leader-led group discussion.

Becoming a Woman of Simplicity by Cynthia HealdThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Jan. 10 to March 28


Ann Hershey,

God Invites You to Be at Rest. But can life in this multitasking world be tamed? In a culture that pulls women in multiple directions at once, is it possible to declutter the calendar, reduce energy-draining distractions, and exchange some of those urgencies for what is truly important? This timely Bible study shows you that, yes, a simpler life is not only possible, but also vital.

This study delves into Scripture and offers practical, real-life counsel so you can experience the freedom necessary to live with the quiet confidence God intended. Class time will include video teaching and leader-led group discussion.

Intimacy with God: A Bible Study in the Psalms by Cynthia HealdThursday Evening

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Jan. 10 to May 9


Abby Stocking,

This topical Bible study for women shows how the Lord personally meets with you in the Psalms. As you progress in your spiritual formation, you’ll become more honest and vulnerable before God as you track the Psalmists’ struggles and triumphs on their way to intimacy with God. Make fresh, personal observations with the help of quotes from classic Christian authors and thinkers, and you’ll spend more time reflecting and less time looking for “right answers.” Class time will include leader-led group discussion.

Life Lessons from Philippians by Max LucadoThursday Evening

6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Jan. 10 to April 4


In a world full of anxieties, worries, and fears, could you stand to have a bit more joy? In the book of Philippians, Paul expresses joy in their sharing the gospel, explains why he was imprisoned, and addresses the disunity among believers in the church. Key Themes:

  • By faith we have Christ in us because of the Spirit of God.
    Only Christ can bring salvation.
    Christian unity encourages our faith.

Class time will include teaching and leader-led group discussion.
