The Bad Girls of the Bible, And What We Can Learn From Them
September 18- November 27
Tuesdays, 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Leader: Elsie Parker
Material Cost: $13.00
Women everywhere marvel at those "good girls" in Scripture–Sarah, Mary, Esther–but on most days, that’s not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they’re honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch a glimpse of Jezebel’s take-charge pride or Eve’s disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today’s modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires. So what’s a good girl to do? Learn from their lives and choose a better path. Whether they were "Bad to the Bone," "Bad for a Season, but Not Forever" or only "Bad for a Moment," these infamous sisters show women how not to handle the challenges of life.

The books of Joshua and Judges take you on a journey of contrasts — great courage and knee-shaking cowardice, enduring love and heartless infidelity, God’s faithfulness and Israel’s unfaithfulness. This 12-lesson in-depth study will give you hope as you watch God accomplish His work through the lives of mighty warriors and deeply flawed people.
The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer
September 20 – November 29
Thursdays, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Leader: Theresa Smeltzer
Material Cost: 11.00
Sometimes the voices that speak most clearly in the present are those that echo from the past. So it is in this Christian classic by the late pastor and evangelist A. W. Tozer. In The Pursuit of God, Tozer brings the mystics to bear on modern spirituality, grieving the hustle and bustle and calling for a slow, steady gaze upon God. With prophetic vigor and flowing prose, he urges us to replace low thoughts of God with lofty ones, to quiet our lives so we can know God’s presence. He reminds us that life apart from God is really no life at all.
