LEARN MORE ABOUT THE VARIOUS BIBLE STUDIES
OFFERED AT DESERT SPRINGS COMMUNITY CHURCH
Bible studies are a great way to grow, fellowship and get connected with other women in the church body. Join together with other women that are looking for the same things you are. It’s a time to make new friends that you can pray with, grow and learn with, and even laugh with! We invite you to find a study and get involved!
Tuesday bible studies
Tuesday Studies meet at 8:45am and will resume on January 11, 2022. We start with a buffet breakfast. The program begins at 9am with worship and prayer, we have time around our tables and are finished by 11am.
When you register for Bible study as a new participant, we will assign you to a leader. We have a wonderful group of leaders this semester, including several new leaders! Joining a table with some ladies and a leader that you may not know can feel intimidating, but it's a great way to build relationships and to have to people and personalities speaking into your life. If you are returning to our study from the Fall semester, you will remain at the same table.
We offer childcare for nursery through preschool age children. We do not charge for our childcare, but we do take an offering each week to help offset expenses. We do not currently have the staff available to cover classes for home school aged children.
Here are the details on our Tuesday studies:
Main Study: The Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew’s gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus’ longest recorded message – a sermon given to His disciples early in His ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ-follower would look like. It was a message intended to turn upside down every expectation His closest followers might have. Both practical and profound, the sermon asks of us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? What is the nature of true righteousness?
In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right – a study on blessedness, a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer, a meditation on lilies of the field. But what if we navigated these three chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification? This 9-week study led by Jen Wilkin does just that. Seat yourself on a mountainside to learn at the feet of Jesus. Ask for ears to hear and a heart to respond to the teaching of our King.
Precept Study: James - A Faith That's Real
What is true faith? How should you live the Christian life? Each verse of this practical study is alive with instructions, admonition, and encouragement. Learn God's principles for dealing with trials, temptations, the tongue, and the pull of the world.
This study will meet for 10 weeks. You can choose to meet in person on Tuesday mornings, or you can join in the teaching via Zoom.
We hope you find a Bible study option that works for you! Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
