Isaiah By Melissa Spoelstra
January 11- March 1 | 1:00-3:00pm | Fee: Cost of Book
North Campus with Lois Anfinrud
To join select “Wednesday, Bible Study – Women” from the list of women’s Bible studies
Following God isn’t about striving; It’s about trusting God more.  Trust is at the heart of every healthy relationship, especially your relationship with God.  It’s one thing to say you rest in God, but does your stress, worry, or general lack of peace give evidence that you rely on Him? In this 7-session study, Melissa Spoelstra encourages you to let go of striving and learn to trust in God’s character, His comfort, and even His correction.  As you study the book of Isaiah–from the Prophet’s challenges to the nation of Israel to prophecies of the Messiah–you’ll see that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests.  
 

Rhythms of Rest: Finding the Spirit of Sabbath in a Busy World By Shelly Miller
January 19 – April 27 | 12:00-1:00pm | Fee: Cost of Book
Atomic Coffee with Karen Moore
To join select “Thursday, Bible Study – Women” from the list of women’s Bible studies
An inspiring, practical guide to finding rest and getting closer to God.  Sabbath-keeping not only brings physical refreshment, it restores the soul.  God commands us to “remember the Sabbath,” but is it realistic in today’s fast-paced culture?  In this book, Shelly Miller dispels legalistic ideas about Sabbath and shows how even busy people can implement a rhythm of rest into their lives–whether for an hour, a morning, or a whole day.  Miller shares practical advice for having peaceful, close times with God.  You will learn simple ways to be intentional about rest, ideas for tuning out distractions and tuning in God, and even how meals and other times with friends and family can be Sabbath experiences.  Ultimately this book is an invitation to those who long for rest but don’t know how to make it a reality.
 
 
Abide: A Study of 1, 2, & 3 John By Jen Wilkin
January 25 – March 29 | 7:00-8:30pm | Fee: Cost of Book
North Campus with Karen Moore
To join select “Wednesday, Bible Study – Women” from the list of women’s Bible studies

How can we hold onto assurance of our faith?  How can we discern the truth from a lie?  How can we know God loves us? In three short letters, the apostle John reminds an early church facing division, deception, and doubt to hold fast to what they know and to live like they believe it.  And he reminds us, as well.  In this study, Jen Wilkin will help you see how two thousand years later, his words call to Christians in similar challenges to recall a great salvation and to abide in the truth.
