About this study
September and October- Studying Ezra (Part one of a study of Ezra and Nehemiah, by Sarah Ivill)
The Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah offer a timeless message of hope to Christians, reminding us that Jesus came to set us free from our own Babylonian captivity by becoming the true temple, living Word, and the One who is preparing a city where the walls are perfectly pure and secure. In this eleven-lesson Bible study, Sarah Ivill provides students of Scripture with an in-depth look at these two small books filled with great truths which will encourage them to trust that the good hand of God is on them. Join us as Sarah Ivill leads us through the book of Ezra!
November- Pastor's Series
Each week in November one of our pastors will teach on topics including worship and eschatology.
January- Studying Envy of Eve, by Melissa Kruger
The Envy of Eve guides readers to understand how desires grow into covetousness and what happens when this sin takes power in our hearts. Covetousness chokes out the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, allowing discontentment to bloom. The key to overcoming is to get to the root of our problem: unbelief–a mistrust of God’s sovereignty and goodness. Melissa Kruger will lead us through this study on overcoming covetousness.
February-March- Studying Nehemiah (Part two of a study of Ezra and Nehemiah, by Sarah Ivill)
Sarah Ivill will teach as we finish the study of her book Ezra and Nehemiah by studying Nehemiah.
March-April- Panel Series
Join us for a three-week panel series on topics such as "Aging with Grace" and "Loving Family Members who Struggle with Sexuality".
Study Format and Homework
Format: On Thursday mornings, participants in this study will sit at round tables to hear teaching and participate in group discussion. Table groupings will be the same each week, giving women a chance to fellowship and get to know each other.
Homework: Homework times will vary throughout the year based on the topic and book being studied.
This study is designed to include both women who have been at Christ Covenant for many years, and those who are new to our church. We encourage members and regular attenders at Christ Covenant to go ahead and register for the whole year to get the most out of the study. However, if you are new to our church, this is a great study to jump into at any point in the year, since we will be covering a variety of topics!
