MONDAY NIGHT STUDY GROUP FALL STUDY                                                           SET APART: Holy Habits of Prophets and Kings                                                                          Beginning Monday, September 18 – 7:00 pm

In today’s world, people want to be set apart – recognized, admired, followed, liked. But God wants us to be set apart in a different way. God wants the Holy Spirit to mark us and make us different from those around us so that we may know God and love God more, and so that others may be drawn to God too.

            This study of 1 and 2 Kings examines six holy habits of Old Testament prophets and kings who were set apart by their close walk with God – men such as Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Hezekiah, and Josiah. We’ll explore the central stories of these intriguing men of God and some of the practices they observed:  being devoted to God, listening to god, mentoring, practicing humility, worshiping God, discovering God’s word.

            As we study what the Bible teaches about these six timeless practices, we’ll discover that they are not only for prophets and king but also for each one of us today. Together we’ll learn how they can help us draw closer to God and to follow God’s unique purposes for our lives today. We’ll see that being set apart is not only for our own good but also for the good of others as they come to see God in and through us.

All are invited to join us for this exciting and insightful study beginning Monday, September 18 at 7:00 pm in Chapel Parlor. Why not make this study a special part of your fall?

 

 

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN 

There are two women’s bible study circles, Pikeville Circle – which meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at Henry Ford Village and also Peace Circle – which meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the church. Both circles are using the Presbyterian Women Horizons study for 2017-2018: Cloud of Witnesses: The Community of Christ in Heaven by Melissa Bane Sevier. In nine lessons, Ms. Sevier invites us to explore major themes found in Hebrews, relate these themes to other parts of our faith tradition, and tie them together with the overarching motif of community. The community for which the letter, or homily, was written interacts, in a sense, with all communities of which we are a part, as we bring these groups with us wherever we go. This ever-present “great cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1) strengthens and encourages us as we “run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12: 1b-2).

See Elaine Filiak or Mary Boudreau and join us at one of our monthly Circle meetings.
