Ladies Bible Study – It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way

What do you do when God’s timing seems questionable, His lack of intervention hurtful, and His promises doubtful?

Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointment and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness.

Discover how our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God.

Date and Time (CDT): Wednesdays, September 25, 2019 through December 18, 2019, 11:30 – 12:30

Ladies Bible Study – Overcome

Many people feel they are less than who God says they are. We get our identity from our careers, our political positions, our roles in the family, and a number of other lesser things.

However, what is most true about us is that we are made by a God who loves us, and the gospel can bring us into a relationship with Him. When we understand who God is, we more fully understand who we are.

This small group study uses clips from the film Overcomer to examine how we determine our identity and how we can find or true identity in Christ.

2019 Alpha Celebration

Bible Study Fellowship: Acts and the Letters of the Apostles

Join the BSF ExxonMobil Satellite this fall to study Acts and the Letters of the Apostles. Satellite classes will meet from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm on Tuesdays.

The next study in Bible Study Fellowship, starting in the Fall of 2019, will be Acts and Letters of the Apostles.  In order of appearance: Acts, 1 Peter, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 Corinthians and James. If you’ve been in BSF awhile, you may notice the lineup is different than previous years of this study. The revised study provides a 30-week format and allows us to spend more time in other portions of the study. (For example, we’ll spend four weeks exploring 1 Corinthians, rather than two, as we have before.) To accommodate this, we have trimmed some epistles from the study – 2 Corinthians, Ephesians, 2 Peter and Jude. We would like to reconstitute these and other BSF materials to create several shorter, off-season studies in the future.  See the following video for encouragement to attend!
