Even though I’ve lived in AZ for 30 plus years, it’s hard to believe that “Fall” is here when it’s over 100 degrees outside! As I’ve been running around from store to store gathering all the things my daughter’s college dorm list suggested, the reality of schools starting, learning becoming a priority again, and a steady routine began to sink in!
As “disciples” or “followers” of Christ, we are life-long learners! I’ve been working through different Women’s Bible Study materials and I’ve been getting very excited about this next year of studies I believe God has led us to participate in! We will be challenged to live as Children of the Light and to be overcomers and see our weaknesses as a gift!
Get ready, Ladies!!! Right around the corner on Sunday Evenings starting Sunday the 17th of August we will be gathering at 6:00 in the Youth Room to learn more about one of the most famous character’s of our Old Testament Sunday School stories we’ve heard since childhood!! As stated by Priscilla Shirer, the author of this study, “Gideon’s story involves far more than a wet fleece and a battle won with 300 soldiers. His epic victory actually tells of one man’s struggle with his own weakness-and the One True God who transformed it into triumph.” Join us as we learn from Priscilla how to open our eyes to a brand new perspective on ourselves, our God and Gideon! Register for our Gideon study here. (You must preregister for this study)
On Tuesday Mornings, starting September 16th, we will be diving into the books of 1 & 2 Thessalonians with Beth Moore teaching us by video in her new study, Children of the Day. “These books shed light on the relationship shared by those of us that comprise the church. Together we stand shoulder-to-shoulder as we look outward, living in obedience to God’s Word and in anticipation of Christ’s coming.” As we wait with anticipation, just like the church in Thessalonica, we will be challenged to live holy lives and be mobilized to minister the grace of the Gospel of Christ, to grow more in-love with God’s truth and to understand what the days ahead will look like. Register for our Tuesday study here.
Many of you have made your plans and are all registered for our Get-Away to Scottsdale! September 11-13th are some red-letter days on the calendar for us as women of DSCC! If you haven’t registered to join us, it’s not too late!! You can go online today to reserve your spot here.
My personal excitement for all these opportunities to grow in my relationship with God and to grow to know each other as women of Desert Springs is sky-rocketing!! I hope everyone one of you can find an area of ministry to our Women where you can plug in and live together in community.
I’m looking forward to getting us all back together!!
