"Devoted"|A Chronological Bible Study for Women

How is Your Heart?  “And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them.  I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender responsive heart (Ezekiel 11:19).  We invite you to join our study of Ezekiel, as we read about the Israelites’ spurning of God’s love for and pursuit of them, their worship of idols and other gods, how deeply they hurt God, and God’s response to them.  Every day we have assigned reading and journaling, and each week we share this with our group.  Timberly Eckelmann, our teacher, provides in-depth instruction about select verses or events. We meet on Zoom on Tuesday mornings.  Contact adults@sapres.org for more information about registration, materials, and Zoom groups.

Discover how God puts into the heart of a government official to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in a way that causes even all of their enemies to see that it was done with God’s help.  We plan to gather, following social distancing guidelines of our church, each week for a live teaching, small group discussion. Preregistration is required.

God's Perfect Peace

Women's Ministry Weekly Encouragement
Let’s be blunt: We live in anxious times. Concerns about physical health and the economy continue to have a very real impact on our daily lives. It seems easy, almost like it is a part of human nature, to become absorbed by these concerns and slip into fear and worry. God, however, has not called us to a life consumed by worry. Right here, in the midst of our daily concerns, God is inviting us to look to Him for peace.

Each handout has 5 days of Scripture on journal pages. You can print these out or use your own journal.
