Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season
Women's Study | In-person or Via Zoom
Begins Sept. 9 | Wednesdays, 6 - 7 p.m.
Life is like a rollercoaster. One day, it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day, it can feel like everything is falling apart. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment, he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed spiritual stamina in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too!
In this six-week study, grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in every season. Join facilitator Kara Hayter on Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m., either in-person (on campus) or online (through Zoom). Registration is needed for Zoom link and class size. Purchase the study guide “Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season” before the class begins. Registration is available online. Please contact Rev. Joy Roberson at email@example.com for more information.
"Defiant Joy" Women's Study
Begins Thursday, Sept. 10 | 9:30 to 11 a.m.
Zoom & In-Person
Using humor, wit and wisdom, author Candace Payne (aka “Chewbacca Mom”) reveals biblical insights to unshakable joy and freedom in every circumstance. Dispel the myths that joy is frivolous, immature, or reserved for a few select “happy” people, and open your heart to receive the freedom and joy God created you to live in. "I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” (John 15:11)In this six-session video Bible study, learn what it is to live a life expressed by joy! This study will challenge groups to get honest and real in their discussion time and to explore the truth about joy, according to Scripture. The study guide also includes a personal “Joy Lab” that makes homework a new daily practice of encountering the abundance God intends for each of us. Be sure to join Rev. Joy Roberson either in-person (on campus) or online (through Zoom). Participants will need to purchase the "Defiant Joy Study Guide" by Candace Payne before meeting. Register to receive class information and/or Zoom access.
Surrendered: Women's Study
Begins Sept. 14 | Mondays 9:30 - 11 a.m. | In-Person & Zoom
Are you disappointed by unchanging circumstances? Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “Let go and let God,” which suggests that surrender is God’s path for peace for your life. It maybe true, but it’s easier said than done, isn’t it?
In this six-week Bible study, you’ll learn how to let go by exploring Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness. As you look to his example, you’ll discover six principles that will equip you to let God lead you to victory as you deal with the problems and pain you are facing.
This study will equip you to give up control, reach for God, let go of fear, and experience the blessings of the surrendered life. Join facilitator Susann Smith on Mondays at 9:30 a.m. This study will be offered as a hybrid class, both in-person and on Zoom. You will need a Surrendered Study Guide by Barb Roose. Registration is available online. Contact Rev. Joy Roberson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Believing Jesus: Women's Study
Begins Tuesday, Sept. 15 | 1 to 3 p.m.| Zoom
In "Believing Jesus," an 8-session DVD study, Lisa Harper retraces the steps of the apostles in the book of Acts, while throwing in a few of her own crazy adventures along the way. The disciples didn't have much of a road map after Jesus ascended to heaven, but God's grace and spirit filled in the gaps as they moved forward. It required their willingness to risk everything to establish a new community that would change the future world. Are you willing to risk everything? Join facilitator Michelle Urrutia on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. to walk this journey together. Register online to receive the Zoom link. Participants will need to purchase the study guides. Contact Rev.

"Chasing Vines" - A Women's Bible Study
Begins Sept. 17 | 9:30 to 11 a.m.
In "Chasing Vines," Beth Moore explores the ways God delights in watching things grow -- and how the vineyard holds the secret to how we can have a more abundant and meaningful life. As she traces the metaphor through Scripture, Beth uncovers how every part of our own lives -- even the rockiest, most difficult soil -- is used by God to make a difference for His Kingdom. Join facilitator Val Reed for this seven-week journey in person at White’s Chapel. Participants will need to purchase the study guide before meeting. Registration is required.

So whether your youngest child just left for college or your last child was just married - come join us in our quest to find new joy, purpose, and adventure after the kids leave home!

“Church of the Small Things” Women’s Study
Begins Nov. 5 | 9:30 to 11 a.m. | On campus and Zoom
It doesn’t matter how old we are or what kind of work we do, we’ve all wondered at times, “Does my life really matter?” Do the everyday events and messy moments make any kind of difference? Is it okay to be fulfilled by the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office, and cooking chicken for dinner? This six-session video Bible study with Melanie Shankle, bestselling author and popular blogger, speaks directly to the heart of women of all ages who are longing to find significance and meaning in the normal, everyday world of attending class on their college campus, driving carpool to soccer practice, cooking a meal for their family, taking care of a sick loved one, or a million other things. Shankle offers women the opportunity to embrace what it means to live an abundant and incredibly meaningful life finding beauty and laughter in all the small things right beneath the surface of every moment. Join Rev. Joy Roberson as women of WC journey through this study. This will be a Hybrid class, available in person and online via Zoom. Please purchase the study guide on your own. Registration is available online.
