BIBLE STUDIES, SMALL
GROUPS - Just a reminder that Right Now Media is available to all of our members as you think about your
relationship with God in this upcoming year. Right Now Media is a database FULL of online Bible studies and social groups for
individuals, families, children and groups. We often use this media resource in
our Bible studies and small groups throughout the year. It’s a GREAT resource
for you or for your family to be able to plug in to God’s Word and in the times
we use it in our own church group setting. If you’d like to take advantage of
this FREE online resource, contact Pastor Brandi to get set up. She just
needs your email address. Your faith journey isn’t one you were ever meant
to take alone. God made us for community!

bear the Fruits of the Spirit.
Saturday Morning Women’s Study, via Zoom - begins Jan. 8th, 8am.
KNOWN BY NAME – RAHAB. The women in the Bible asked the same three questions we
all still ask today: How does everyone else see me? How do I see myself? How
does God see me? Rahab’s story, found in the book of Joshua, is a story of a
girl boss, an assertive, confident woman who did what she had to do to provide
for her family. Her identity was shaped by her upbringing. With no Bible study
to join or podcast to download, Rahab learned her beliefs and behaviors in a
culture that believed in gods, not God. But when opportunity knocked, she
boldly trusted in the God she had never known, and became something she never
imagined–a woman who brought freedom to generations. This Bible study will take
you through Rahab’s story as she trusted God’s final word about her worth above
society’s. You will learn how to shed unhelpful labels and fears, and instead
revel in God’s unconditional love and acceptance of you–just as you are. You
can be free from shame and doubt.
