FALL MIDDLE SCHOOL BIBLE STUDY: Calling all middle school students and families! This fall, Grace + Peace is starting a monthly bible study for 6th-8th graders called "Bible 101." The study centers on teaching the importance of scripture, how to read it, and how to apply it. We'll meet at Brentwood Bible Church (6301 Woodrow Ave) from 2-3:30 pm on the 3rd Saturday of each month. (Except Nov/Dec. We'll meet 11/10 and 12/8 those months.) The study is co-ed. For more information, please reach out to study leaders Mac Meador (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mary Carlisle Crehore (email@example.com).
DAYTIME WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY: This fall we will learn more about God as we inductively study the book of Judges and some of the darkest days of Israel's history. Surprisingly, we will see God's particular love for women shine through this very difficult book. Studies will take place weekly (except for the weeks of September 26, October 31, and November 21) on Wednesdays from 10:00 am to 11:30 am at Becca Coley's home beginning on August 29, and childcare will be provided at Anna Marshall's home. Please reach out to Elizabeth Lai or Lauren Buescher for the address or more information: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. RSVP to Anna for childcare: firstname.lastname@example.org.
EVENING WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY: Mary Carlisle Crehore will be leading a Bible study every other week on Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30pm. We will be going through the book of 1 Samuel, using Hope Blanton's study, which can be purchased on Amazon or the PCA Bookstore website. The schedule for the rest of the fall is: September 11, September 25, October 9, October 23, November 6, November 13, November 27, and December 11. This Samuel study will continue through the spring semester. Childcare will not be provided for our evening study. Please contact Mary Carlisle for the address, schedule, and with any questions: email@example.com.
