Healing in Stretching led by Deane Vallejo
God designed and created us to be completely and totally free. Our body is such a precious temple and even though maybe in our minds we have let something go, our bodies can still carry and hold onto the tension and trauma from our past, whether it's deep wounds or just stress from our week. Each class will give you an opportunity to identify, let go and find new freedom. I will be leading an alternative to yoga called Healing in Stretching, which is a gentle and restorative stretch class designed to bring physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom by the power of the Holy Spirit and will also be accompanied with scripture, prayer and worship. We will be going over the book of Nehemiah and learning the joy of reaping God's blessing and the beauty in walking in His freedom.
Please bring your bible, pen, journal and a stretching mat and wear comfortable clothes. If you don't have a mat, a towel will work.
Discussion of Karen Steven's weekly bible study led by Cindy McNeely and Sheila Davis
We will be leading a discussion group that will go deeper into our Winter study led by Karen Stevens. This will be a time of fellowship, companionship, and loving support as we share with each other what God is blossoming in each of our lives. It will be an open discussion time where we can share our thoughts, our questions, and our observations with each other and support one another as we learn and continue to nourish what God is planting within us at this time. We willuse open discussion questions that relate to that week's particular lesson plan in Karen Steven's study, and enhance the time with supporting material such as discussing current events from a Christian perspective, watch short videos that add to the discussion as well as entertain and motivate us, and reflect on various women of the Bible whose stories reflect the same struggles, as well as adventures, we each go through in today's world. We are all Sisters in Christ, and I look forward to welcoming you and learning with you in this time that God has prepared for us. " . . . And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?" Ester 4:14
Lies Women Believe led by Mable Piris
Satan is the master deceiver and his lies are endless. And the lies Christian women believe are at the root of most of their struggles.
"Many women live under a cloud of personal guilt and condemnation," says Nancy Leigh DeMoss. "Many are in bondage to their past. Others are gripped by fear of rejection and a longing for approval. Still others are emotional prisoners." You will need to purchase the book "Lies Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely led by Patty Kalaye
GOD WANTS US TO LIVE LOVED WHEN YOU FEEL LEFT OUT, LONELY, AND LESS THAN.
In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst digs deep into God’s Word to help you explore the roots of rejection, the way other relationships get tainted because of a past rejection, and the truth about what it looks like to live loved. With biblical depth, gut-honest vulnerability, and refreshing wit, Lysa will take you on a visual journey in the Holy Land to some of the places where people ofthe Bible such as Hannah, David, and even Jesus lived and walked.
Lysa will help youto enter a place of healing and new perspective, as well as a time for you to go to new places with Jesus and experience him like never before. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken, or taken—a love that does not reject or uninvite.
