Spring Bible Study Offerings

Name of Study: Breaking Free

Authors: Beth Moore

Description: This study leads you through a study of Isaiah, a book about the captivity of God’s children, the faithfulness of God, and the road to freedom in Christ. Using Scripture to help identify spiritual strongholds in your life, no matter how big or small, Beth explains that anything that hinders us from the benefits of knowing God is bondage. God intends for you to know and believe Him, glorify Him, experience His peace, and enjoy His presence.

Name of Study: Gideon

Author: Priscilla Shirer

Description: When we hear the name Gideon, we remember his 300 soldiers or a fleece spread beneath the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that. This is a story about God and His people—His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of, even though, their weakness. This study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life.

Name of Study: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha’s World

Author: Joanna Weaver

Description: The life of a woman today isn’t really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lord’s feet, but the daily busy demands just won’t leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve Him, yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy. In this study, Jesus invites you to choose the better part-a joyful life of “living-room” intimacy with Him that flows naturally into “kitchen service” for Him. Learn how to deepen our devotion and strengthen our service with less stress and greater joy.
