WINTER IN-DEPTH BIBLE STUDY

Thursdays

9:45 AM - 11:30 AM

In January, we'll begin a 10-week study by Nancy Guthrie called "The Son of David," which is part of her "Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament" series. This series provides a fresh perspective on Israel's history and a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture. We’ll meet each Thursday morning in Ilderton Hall, and childcare is available with advance RSVP.


Books are available for purchase in the Resource Center. Please email Janet MacDonald to sign up.

CROSSROADS - 360 SEMINAR

Sunday mornings

9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

You're invited to join us for Crossroads as a 360 Seminar on Sunday mornings, as we discover Jesus our Savior is “Altogether Lovely.” If you are unable to attend weekday morning studies, this is your opportunity to experience Crossroads!

Crossroads is a topical Bible study encouraging and equipping women for deep community. We will spend nine Sunday mornings exploring principles and practices that draw us closer to Him and deepen our relationship. This is the same curriculum we used for our nine-week Crossroads study this fall, spread out over nine Sunday mornings during 360 Seminars from 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM. We will enjoy women sharing their stories of spiritual growth through “Box Talks,” Biblical teaching, small group study, prayer, and light homework designed to deepen our relationships with the Lord and each other.

Our study begins Sunday, February 10th and ends April 7th. We will meet in Ilderton Hall each week, and childcare is provided as part of our normal Sunday morning Worship Gatherings. Please register in advance with Janet MacDonald if you plan to join us!

Calling all homeschooling moms! We have a Crossroads opportunity for you, too. You're invited to join us on select Wednesdays from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM for a special Crossroads study.

Your students can enjoy a supervised time of lunch, play, and fellowship together with other homeschooling students while the mothers explore practices and principles that draw us close to God and to each other.

Please join us as we discover Jesus our Savior is “Altogether Lovely”.  We will enjoy women sharing their stories of spiritual growth through “Box Talks,” Biblical teaching, small group study, prayer, and light homework designed to deepen our relationships with the Lord and each other.

BOOK CLUB

Tuesday, April 30

7:00 - 8:30 PM

Our Women's Book Club meets four times a year (September through April), reading Christian books in a variety of styles and on a variety of topics and meeting for an informal discussion. All are welcome to come as time and interest allow! 

Our next meeting will be April 30th at the home of Tiphany Jackson in Belfair Plantation as we discuss Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul by Hannah Anderson.

Feeling worn thin? Come find rest.

The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders through miles of rolling Virginia mountains. It’s a route made famous by natural beauty and the simple rhythms of rural life. And it’s in this setting that Hannah Anderson began her exploration of what it means to pursue a life of peace and humility. Fighting back her own sense of restlessness and anxiety, she finds herself immersed in the world outside, discovering a classroom full of forsythia, milkweed, and a failed herb garden. Lessons about soil preparation, sour mulch, and grapevine blights reveal the truth about our dependence on God, finding rest, and fighting discontentment.

Humble Roots is part theology of incarnation and part stroll through the fields and forest. Anchored in the teaching of Jesus, Anderson explores how cultivating humility—not scheduling, strict boundaries, or increased productivity—leads to peace.  “Come unto me, all who labor and are heavy laden,” Jesus invites us, “and you will find rest for your souls.”

So come. Learn humility from the lilies of the field and from the One who is humility Himself. Remember who you are and Who you are not, and rediscover the rest that comes from belonging to Him.

We hope you can join us! Please contact Deborah Cain with any questions, to RSVP, and to secure a pass.
