Women's Fall Bible Study
September 13th - September 14th, 2017
You can choose between Wednesday nights or Thursday mornings, whichever best fits your schedule. Childcare will be provided.
For our fall session, we’ll be diving into Jesus’ I AM statements found in the Gospel of John with Lysa TerKeurst.
What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.
Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study, you will learn to:
- Trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
- Stop living like a slave to your circumstances by training your heart to embrace the life-giving freedom God wants for you.
- Gain a better understanding of how Jesus' words 2,000 years ago are so very applicable to the answers we are searching for today.
