Life change happens when we gather in biblical community and connect with others. We do this in groups where we can know and care for each other, encourage each other to grow spiritually, and invite others to join us. Women’s Bible Studies are one way that you can connect with others at Grace Point. Bible Studies are a great way to meet amazing women who love God and want to study His Word together.

One day, while traveling near the Sea of Galilee, Jesus spoke to His disciples about what it means to follow Him. Jesus' teaching has become known as the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and is Jesus' longest explanation of what is looks like to live as a believer following Him. The Sermon on the Mount represents the major ideals of the Christian life. Jesus taught on prayer, care for the needy, the law, divorce, fasting, justice, salvation and more.
Jesus made it clear that His followers should live in a noticeably different way than other people because His followers hold to a godly standard of conduct -- a standard of love and selflessness that Jesus Himself would embody when He gave His life on the cross for our sins. Jesus commands His followers to do better than what culture and society allow or expect -- to Live Right Side Up in an Upside Down World.

Do you ever feel a disconnect between your Sunday morning faith and your Monday morning mom life?
Motherhood is HARD. One second, we think we're doing a good enough job, but the next we think we're the worst mom on the planet. This is why we need the refreshing truth of the Gospel to give us hope in the everyday moments.
Join us on an exciting adventure as we explore and study RISEN MOTHERHOOD- Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments.
We are a group of imperfect moms, sharing real joys and real struggles, striving to serve a perfect God through our motherhood. We welcome any other imperfect moms of "littles" to join us, to be encourage and challenged, as we walk this path together.

Come gather and grow with us in God’s Word as we study from the book of Titus together and learn to be adorned with the Gospel, and to adorn the Gospel in the eyes of others. This study is for women of every age and every season of life! We will meet 14 times.
Many of us feel unqualified to speak into the lives of others. The good news is, we can share and teach out of our strengths and our failures to point others to the amazing grace of God. The life-to-life model from Titus 2, the sharing of life between women, would be neither effective nor needful if any of us had it all together.
In Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together best-selling author Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth walks readers through this Titus 2 model and shows how each woman has a vital part to play in adorning the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the other women around them. We will learn to be Titus 2 women consistently, contentedly and beautifully.
“…so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.” (Titus 2:10)

Does God care? Is He fair? Is He even there? Although you may know all the right answers, they don’t always feel right. This Bible study explores these and other questions of faith. God’s ways don’t always make sense, but He is trustworthy. Come close to Him. Trust Him. God will reveal Himself and fill in your missing pieces.
Participants who take this study will:
-Experience unexpected peace in spite of unexpected heartache
-Hang on to God’s answers when you feel you are at the end of your rope
-Move forward when you feel stuck in your circumstances
-Have a greater sense of peace through every storm you face
-Strengthen your faith when you feel beat down by life
-Survive unexpected storms knowing God is in your boat
-Experience stability when tidal waves of emotion hit
-Trust God more than your feelings
Please join us on Sunday mornings during 2nd service as we learn to trust God more than our feelings.
