Here at Eastwood Baptist Church, we love God, we love His Word, and we love people.
Our women’s ministry is all about relationships – building our relationship with God, building our relationships with one another, and building relationships with those who are still in need of Him. We want to help you discover all of who God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit want to be in your life so that you are so filled up it overflows on those around you. To that end, we offer several women’s Bible studies…
Fall Bible Study Opportunities:
(1) Diane Stockton will lead a study written by Kelly Minter entitled All Things New. Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live. Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come! Class meets on Tuesday mornings beginning September 5 from 9:00-11:00 in room D210.
(2) Angela Shuler will lead a detailed study over the book of Joshua entitled Living Our Promised Land. For forty years, the children of Israel wandered in the desert not because they were following their leader, but because of failing faith. They had refused to obey God and to conquer Canaan. So they wandered. Finally, the new generation was ready to cross the Jordan and possess the land. Joshua, a man of faith and courage, was chosen to lead the people to conquer the promised land.
For us as New Testament believers there is a Promised Land to be enjoyed, not just in the life to come, but even now in this present life. It is a place of peace and joy, a place of fruitfulness and usefulness where we experience all that God has for us and all that God wants to do through us. I believe that God is saying to you and me the same thing that He said in Joshua 18:3, “How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that LORD, the God of your fathers, HAS GIVEN you?” Join us for this fascinating study of the book of Joshua. What is the Promised Land that God has for you?! Are you living YOUR promised land? Class options are Tuesday evenings beginning August 22nd in Big D and Wednesday mornings beginning August 23rd in room D204. Child care is provided.
How do you sign up? You may sign up at the Connection Center on Sunday mornings or you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call Angela at 469.964.6525.
Ladies, we cannot stress enough how important it is for us to be in the Word of God daily. Truly, the Bible is THE Creator God speaking to each one of us individually exactly the words we need to hear! We know that everyone is busy… very busy!! But this is an opportunity to make God a priority in your life. He will bless the time you spend with Him and He will enable you to get done everything that needs to get done!
And, please, if you have any questions or concerns, ask!!
AND we also host a variety of activities that range from silly and fun to a bit more serious…
