 Bible Study Details  

Children of the Day by Beth Moore 
An in-depth Bible study of 1 and 2 Thessalonians
 

Is family life a challenge? Is work driving you crazy? Do you know God has a purpose for your life, but can't figure out what it is? Know that your circumstances are not coincidental. And God's timing is impeccable. Join Beth Moore on the Thessalonian shores as she walks you through the truth of each verse of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. In this study, you'll face crises, afflictions, relationships, doubts, concerns, and fears. Find encouragement for living the Christian life now and hope for when Christ returns. We cover a wide range of topics including family, prayer, ministering to others, and prophecies. You will walk through verse-by-verse and study one chapter per  session. There will be varying levels of participation available.

Romans 12-13 Practical Christian Living! Our Life a Sacrifice

This fall our focus turns to Practical Christian Living, as we delve into Romans chapter 12 -13 on conformity to  Christ instead of this world! Some of the topics we will cover include: stewardship, using your spiritual gifts, joy in adversity, response to human authority, and more. This class is an in-depth, "line by line" Bible study led by Dr Alison Littauer of Gordon-Conwell Seminary; it can be taken without going through the previous study of Romans,  the book  called "the greatest letter ever written” by Martin Luther.

Genesis Inductive Bible Study: on Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph

We will begin the study with Abraham, who was called "the friend of God." What can you learn from him that will ground your faith, challenge your walk, and give you hope for the future, so that you can be called a friend of the FAITHFUL GOD? Next we will zoom into the life of Isaac and Jacob and see how God can guide our faith, helping us see His purposes in our lives. Then, as we study the life of Joseph,  we  will see what it looks like to keep our focus when dreams are shattered.  You will be enriched as you dig into God’s word through the lives of the Patriarchs and Joseph.

Awaken: A Study for Mothers of Preschoolers and Elementary-Age Children - No Other Gods: Confronting Our Modern-Day Idols

“What matters most to you? your life revolves around your deepest needs and greatest treasures: relationships, family, financial security, hopes and dreams.” Most of these desires are healthy. Yet these longings can become passions we not only pursue, but also worship. They can consume our hearts and minds, competing with  God’s rightful place in our lives. No Other Gods offers a revealing look at the heart of a woman. Author Kelly Minter explores what happens when good desires become false gods, robbing us of an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Salty, Living Life of Flavor and Purpose by Jacqueline Hooks

Why Salty? We hear it so often, the cry to be “sweet”. The cry to be “sugar”. Sugar and Spice and Everything nice…that’s what little girls are made of… But Jesus says, we are salt. Jesus calls us to be Salty. Jesus wants us to lead a life of flavor and purpose. Jesus wants our lives to make other people thirsty for Living Water. Our lives should be leading people straight to Jesus. We are supposed to be poured out and purposeful. Come shake things up and take a look at your life, and get a little salty. Come find out what Jesus meant by being salt. Your life will start to taste a whole lot better.Jesus told us, the followers of Christ are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13). What does it mean to live out salty living when you are just a mom, wife, homemaker, widower, empty nester with no special talents or resources. Come and join the 8 weeks of faith journey where you will look at the scripture and learn to live out Salty Living- Life of Flavor and Purpose where you are. It will be an adventure you would never want to stop and enrich your walk with Jesus beyond your wildest dream.

A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place by Beth Moore

Perhaps no Old Testament event so dramatically illustrates God's persistent desire to relate to His children as the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness. Through the tabernacle God initiated a deeper relationship with His Chosen People by bringing reconciliation and revealing His glory. And certainly, no Old Testament event so richly prefigures the coming of the true Tabernacle, Jesus Christ. In this Bible study you will be challenged to prepare your heart, like the holy of holies, to become a home for His love and glory — a dwelling place for the Most High God. This study will be offered on Tuesday mornings in 2015 Winter/Spring and recommend for mothers with 3rd-6th graders. CarmelKidz Summer camp for 3rd-6th graders will learn Tabernacle.
