Topic: “God of Covenant: A Study of Genesis 12-50″ by Jen Wilkin

Over 10 sessions, discover how God orchestrates everything for His glory and the good of His people.

Women’s Wednesday Evening Bible Study
Meets: 6:30 – 8:15 PM, January 9 – February 20

Room: 302

Topic: Kingdom Agenda: Living Life God’s Way

The message of the Kingdom is sorely lacking today. This is not because people don’t speak of the Kingdom but because far too much of their speech is in esoteric, theological code words that seem unrelated to the realities of life in the here and now. The Christian message, when communicated from a comprehensive Kingdom perspective, provides an agenda that can stand next to and above all other attempts to define the meaning of life, whether for the individual, the family, the church, or the nation. This six-session Bible study can serve as a comprehensive blueprint for the Christian life and as an all-encompassing discipleship tool. There are 20 minute videos with this bible study. Contact Sheila Figueroa at 210-822-4082 or shefig@earthlink.net to reserve a book ($14 Cost).
