Women’s Bible Study - Leaning on Jesus, A Study of God’s Strength
Women’s Bible study book is entitled “Leaning on Jesus, a Study of God’s Strength” by Deb Burma. They meet the first Monday of every month at 9:30 AM in room 218 at church. Please feel free to join as new members are always welcome. For newcomers, the book is available from Amazon or www.CPH.org. If you have any questions, please contact Marcy at email@example.com.
Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 14th and so does our emphasis on the book of Zechariah. The prophet’s chief concern is God’s kingdom. Throughout all fourteen chapters, Zechariah fervently announces that God’s kingdom is coming through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The book of Zechariah abounds with stunning portraits of our Savior. Based upon his 2021 Concordia Publishing House commentary, this Bible Study, led by Pastor Reed, will build upon our mid-week Lenten and Holy Week services. Great joy and delight await all participants!
When carefully reading the Gospel of John, many themes from early Genesis (Genesis 1–3 mainly) come flying off the page. John has intended us to read his Gospel as the fruition of the work God started at creation and will finish in the new creation. Early Genesis, correctly understood, sets the table for how to understand the remainder of Scripture. During Lent we will delve deep into this book to see how Jesus fulfills what God always intended. If you have never known why John 20 is considered to be one of the most treasured chapters of the Bible, you’ll not want to miss this study. Dates: Sundays, February 18–March 24 Teaching Leader: Jeff Coffin.
