Bible Studies

Paul’s last letter to Timothy was a powerful mandate to share the gospel. Join us for four sessions with Kelly Cook, BSF Teaching Leader and BVG Elder’s wife, this summer as we dive into 2 Timothy and think about ways to come alongside of people, listen to their story, and help them to think about spiritual things. Come learn along with us as we are challenged to live out 2 Timothy 2:24 – to be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and to be patient with difficult people for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

What does it mean to be a Christian in our culture today?  For some people, it is a characteristic that defines the very core of who they are.  Sadly for others, it is merely one of many adjectives used to describe them, and can easily be dropped depending upon the political climate or social circles they are in at the time.  The first time the name “Christian” was used was in Acts 11:26.  The Greeks in Antioch did not know what to call the Apostles and their followers, so they gave them the name “Christian” which meant “of the party of Christ”.  Jesus, however, never referred to His followers by that name.  Instead, Jesus called His Apostles and His followers by the title “disciple.”  A disciple is simply one who is a student of a specific teacher and follows their teachings and doctrines.   To be a true follower of Jesus, you must follow the teachings of Jesus, but you can’t follow them until you understand who Jesus is and what He stood for.

The book of Colossians was written by the apostle Paul many years ago, but still relevant today!  The first century Colossians struggled with letting cultural norms creep into and distort foundational truths of Jesus’ identity and Christianity. Join us this summer as we dig into Paul’s letter to the Colossians.  You will discover Christ’s sufficiency and His true glory, while learning basic foundational truths of the faith. You will be challenged to live a new life, one that is rooted in Christ alone.

We live in a culture that is skeptical of anything free, yet God tells us there are no strings attached, just come and delight in His abundance. We are invited to God’s banquet table at no cost. Let’s be women who respond to God’s gracious invitation, knowing it is only in Him that our desire for abundance can truly be satisfied!
