Winter/Spring 2021 Women's Bible Studies
Ladies, we had planning to begin Bible studies in January, but we cannot safely do that at this time. Our hope and prayer is that we will be able to gather for teaching and small groups in person again soon, and we will provide information as it becomes available.
Nursery childcare is available. Register by emailing [email protected] with the name(s) and age(s) of your child(ren) for Women’s Tuesday morning Bible Studies.
Esther, The Hidden Hand of God
Beginning February 2 (See Full Study Schedule)
Tuesdays | 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
10:30 - 11 Teaching (Sanctuary)
11:00 – 12:00 Small Groups (classrooms around the church)
We will be using the study guide "Esther, The Hidden Hand of God" by Lydia Brownback. We also have options other than Tuesday mornings: Sunday evenings starting February 7, Monday evenings starting February 8, and Tuesday evenings starting February 9. The cost of the book is $10.00 and may be paid when you register online.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I be in my same small group? YES
Can I bring a friend, someone who doesn't go to Covenant ? YES
How much homework is there? There is homework, but it is less homework than we had this fall.
How much is it? $10.00
When will we get our books? On the first day of the study. The original start date was January 12; we are pushing that start date back because of Covid.
So what day will we start? We will announce the start date as soon as we can.
Is there anything I should do before the first lesson? Esther is 10 chapters long. Plan to read the book of Esther several times during the month of January.
Do I have to register? Can I just show up? It is very helpful for planning purposes (books, small group assignments) that you register by January 5.
What is the format? We will meet in the sanctuary and the teaching time will begin at 10:30. After the teaching time you will go to the room where your small group will discuss the lesson and pray from 11:00 - 12:00.
What about COVID? Once we start meeting in person, we expect everyone to wear a mask while they are at Covenant, and we expect you to maintain six feet of distance from others. The small group rooms are set up to keep that distance safely. Should it become evident that we will not be able to meet in person, we will live stream the lecture and offer Zoom for small groups.
Is there a remote option even if we go back in person? Yes! The teaching time will be livestreamed from the sanctuary, and we will offer a Zoom small group based on your responses for a convenient meeting time.
Divine Design Discipleship 2020/21 Teaching Series: “Expectations”
Led by Kathy Girardeau
Beginning February 2
Tuesdays | 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Fellowship Hall)
10:00 - 11:15 Worship and the Word
11:15 - 12:00 Mentoring groups (optional)
Join us for the continuation of Divine Design’s series "Expectations." You can participate in person, or join online.
EXPECTATIONS have tremendous power. We bring them to every relationship and every situation. The problem? We often don’t recognize them for what they are. Certain expectations can lead to confusion, conflict, and disappointment, while others free us to see God, ourselves, and His people with more clarity and grace.
In this class we will learn to:
- Identify our current expectations
- Uncover why we’re expecting what we’re expecting
- Begin to bring our expectations in agreement with God’s Word
- Develop appropriate expectations of God and others
The Divine Design community comes together to learn and to grow. In our small groups, you’ll find wise leadership and a safe place for sharing, processing, and receiving prayer. Listen online anytime at www.DivineDesignDiscipleship.com. Can’t come on Tuesday mornings? Contact Kathy Girardeau at [email protected] about additional times for mentoring groups.
