Women's Bible Study 2020

Finding God Faithful: a Study on the Life of Joseph

THE LORD WAS WITH JOSEPH AND EXTENDED KINDNESS TO HIM. Genesis 39:21a

In the midst of hardship, tragedy, and unanswered questions, it’s difficult to glimpse God at work. How do we hold onto our faith during these times? How do we trust God is working all things for our good and His glory? In this study, we will trace the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s purposes reign, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable!

The Bible study will begin January 7 and 9, and will continue through April 28 and 30. Sign up online to attend. If you are already in a Bible study group, there is no need to sign up again.

Women of the Word

Women of the Word presents a Bible study through The Lord’s Prayer:
