Just for Joy Women’s Studies

The Sermon on the Mount, by Jen Wilkin
Wednesday AM, 9:30-11:15am. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right – a study on blessedness or a reflection on the Lord's Prayer. But what if we navigated these three chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification? Both practical and profound, the sermon asks of us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? What is the nature of true righteousness? Through weekly DVD presentations and daily homework, participants will learn what it means to be a citizen of the  kingdom of Heaven according to Jesus' Sermon on the Mount in this 9-week study. REGISTER

Children of the Day: 1 & 2 Thessalonians by Beth Moore, offered at your choice of time: Wednesday PM. Walk the shores of Thessalonica with this 9-week, Bible study of 1 & 2 Thessalonians. Whether you're facing family crises, medical diagnoses, relationship troubles, doubts, or fears, you'll come away encouraged that you are exactly where Christ wants you to be! The DVD sessions are an hour long, so this study will run through fall and winter. NOTE: This study will be offered on Wednesday evenings, beginning January 2015. REGISTER

Restless: Because You Were Made for More by Jennie Allen
Saturday AM, 9:00-11:00am, Begins Jan 10. Using the story of Joseph, the dreamer, Restless explores the fact that God has called each of us to do great things in his name, and then helps us to discover what that might mean for each of each woman individually, no matter what stage of life we are in. Author Jennie Allen explains how your gis, passions, places, and relationships aren’t random; they’re deliberate and meaningful. This study includes weekly homework and brief DVD lessons at each session. REGISTER

Marriage on the Rock clearly details God's principles that will turn disillusioned, divorce-bound marriages into satisfying dream relationships. REGISTER

Support Groups

GriefShare Wednesdays, 6:30-8pm | Begins January 14. It wasn't too many years ago that grieving the loss of a loved one was something we didn't talk about; people thought they should just get on with their lives. Now, we have GriefShare, a special weekly support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. It is a safe place where you can be around people who understand how you feel and the pain of your loss. This group meets at our St. Joseph campus in the Heritage Room (enter through the green awning entrance). Call the church or Barb Vegter (269.429.5129) for info. REGISTER

DivorceCare Tuesdays, 6:30pm | Begins January 13. You don’t have to go through it alone.

It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you've never faced before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Led by Randy and Sherrill Schwalich, DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences.
