Study summary: First Timothy invites us to open our heads, hearts, and hands as we open His Word to discover the good deposit of sound doctrine that has been entrusted to each of us. Our study of this pastoral epistle will challenge us to invest and steward these rich gifts to strengthen His Church. Paul shares his wisdom with young Timothy about what covenant life in the Church looks like as men and women serve alongside one another in such a way that the world leans in and looks to see a gospel picture. We will also see how sound doctrine leads to sound and godly living in our homes. It is our prayer that this Bible study will encourage weary women to stand firm and persevere in a corrosive culture for His glory.
Book: Remember Your Joy by Courtney Doctor & Melissa Kruger, a study of salvation stories in the Old Testament
When: Tuesday evening, 6:30-8:00 PM, June 6th through July 25th (will not meet on July 4th)
Where: 10th floor of the Tower Bldg.
Leader: Suzanne Kim
Cost of book: $11.20
Study summary: This seven-week Bible study, with an emphasis on biblical theology, traces the promised seed of the woman from Genesis 3:15 through seven Old Testament stories. Each chapter gives us a glimpse, a foreshadowing, of the greater salvation Jesus wins. In each encounter, we'll see how God faithfully fulfilled his promise as he prepared us for the ultimate offspring who brought our eternal salvation.
Each story will be accompanied by a symbol that represents an aspect of our salvation. These symbols are intended to be visual reminders of spiritual truths. David once wrote: "Restore to me the joy of your salvation" (Ps. 51:12). Our hope is that you will remember the joy of your salvation—and praise the One who accomplished it—as you consider the battle he won on your behalf.
The woman at the well was acquainted with many, yet no one truly knew her except Jesus (John 4:7-30). She was broken, but the Savior knew her and loved her. In turn, she believed in Him, loved Him, and told others about Him. Following in her footsteps, our new Woman at the Well series will provide a place for women of First Presbyterian Church to know and to be known, building a bridge between women in all stages of life. It will be a time to be encouraged and to encourage; a time to rejoice in His grace and share in sorrows. At each event, we will have a time of fellowship, enjoy drinks and dessert, and a different woman will share her testimony of meeting the Savior, so that we may walk alongside each other, sharpening together, reflecting God's work in our lives.
