 “The Spirit of Jezebel” led by Ronda Martin ▪ Wednesdays ▪ 6:30 PM 

February 4 thru March 11 Main Building Room 125B

This study will take a close look at Scripture and gather evidence from history and foreign cultures to understand Jezebel’s personality from the stance of worship. In direct contrast stands the woman of true influence and power in Proverbs 31. Women will be challenged to gain strength, dignity, and real influence by attaching themselves in worship to the true source of power—Jesus Christ.

A New Study for Moms of Teens

Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 PM Main Building 125A

“Praying the Scriptures for Your Teenagers” led by Alexis Hunn
It’s never been tougher to be a teenager—or the parent of one. Thankfully, from your teen’s first date to the next time he or she borrows the car keys, you can take your concerns to God through prayer. Drawing on God’s Word, Praying the Scriptures for Your Teenager offers palpable help to pray about the stormy issues your teen faces: Relationships Depression Rejection Sexuality Eating disorders … and much more. This book also guides you in praying about everything from your teen’s character and safety to the purposes and plans that God has for his or her life. Filled with historical, biblical, and contemporary illustrations, Praying the Scriptures for Your Teenagers shows how to make the Bible your source for prayers that can powerfully influence your teen’s life. With humor and a warm, personal style, author Jodie Berndt encourages you that, in this sometimes daunting new world, “when you pray the Scriptures, you tap into the same power that has kept teenagers safe for generations.” Books are available at $10 each.
