To ALL ladies! You are invited to a short Precept Bible Study! For three weeks this August, we will drink deeply from the inspired Word of God. We will study through Lamentations – a story of hope and healing in the aftermath of rebellion against God. How do people survive when they have no hope? Where do they turn when there’s nothing but misery all around them? In whom do you put your trust and hope? The only true hope Christians have is in the Lord. Study Lamentations and gain a greater understanding of the God whose compassions never fail.
We will meet at the church on Thursday nights: August 7th, 14th, and 21st from 7-9 pm. The cost of the book is $6.75. Contact Lisa Wenzel or Carol Stanik by July 20th so we can place the book order and pick up your book on Sunday, July 27. Be ready to discuss the first lesson at 7pm on Thursday, August 7th. The dog days of summer can be spent in no better way than to be refreshed from the fountain of God’s holy word! Join us! If you have any questions, contact Lisa Wenzel at email@example.com.

Stronger—Finding Hope in Fragile Places
by Angela Thomas (Ladies Sunday School class)
Through biblical teaching and real life application, this study teaches that believers do not have to live in weakness. God is stronger than every struggle you will ever face. This study will guide women into biblical truth through exposition and story, so they live confident, transformed, Christ-radiating lives marked by His strength. This ladies’ class will be meeting in the old homeschool library.
A Praying Life: Connecting with God in a Distracting World by Paul E Miller (20s and 30s class)
Explore prayer not as a “structured process” but as connecting with God in a truthful and genuine way. Recognize that Biblical prayer flows not primarily from a disciplined “ought to” mindset but from a recognition that we can’t do life on our own and we need God. Explore subtle cultural inhibitors to a Biblical mindset concerning prayer. Learn how to deal with and understand unanswered prayer. Learn to use prayer tools to facilitate your prayer life. Parents will find the author’s family-life experiences especially helpful. This class meets in the old library.
