2018 Summer Women's Growth Groups 

MONDAY EVENING 6:30-8:00pm June 4 – July 9, 2018 (6 Weeks)

“LET IT GO ” a Karen Ehman Bible Study

Leader: Jo Rydman & Sheryl Chester
Cost: $20
Location: 201

In this six-session women’s small group Bible study Karen Ehman provides practical, biblically based steps for letting go of the need to control.

Let’s face it: many women are wired to control. We make sure that the house is clean, the meals are prepared on time, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to work, school, and other activities on time. And trying to control it all is not only exhausting, but can also cause us to lose friends and sometimes, the affection of our families. It can earn wives and mothers the label of control freak and send those within our sphere of influence packing.

In this humorous, yet thought-provoking small group Bible study you’ll find the freedom and reward of living “out of control” – putting God in the rightful place he deserves in your life. Armed with relevant biblical and current examples (both to emulate and to avoid), doable ideas, new thought patterns, and practical tools to implement, this study will gently lead you out of the land of over-control and into a place of quiet trust.

Sessions include:

1.    God Called and He’d Like His Job Back

2.    Combating the “Me First” Mentality

3.    Pursuing the Appearance of Perfection

4.    Practicing the Art of Soul Control

5.    When Comparisons Lead to Over-Control

6.    Fixing Your Eyes on the Attitude Indicator


TUESDAY MORNING 10:00-11:30am June 5 – July 24, 2018 (7 Weeks) (Skipping July 3rd)

“Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break"

Leader: Tammy Vos
Cost: $13
Location: 204

Nehemiah had to have a heart that could break so he could restore a wall that was broken. In this 7 session Bible study for women, Nehemiah’s heart for the oppressed, suffering and poor is a beacon whose light shines on the current call of the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This study also addresses teamwork, integrity, generosity, truth in culture, God’s compassion, and much more.

Like Kelly’s other studies in the Living Room Series, you’ll find authentic Bible teaching, recipes, and a relational approach. Setting Nehemiah apart from Kelly’s first two studies, Nehemiah also includes 7 video sessions and compelling interviews that will help you put feet to your faith. Discover what God has put in your heart to do through the study of His Word, and let God break your heart for the lost and hurting, because a breaking heart is often what God uses to restore the broken.
