Fall Bible Studies

Starting September 29 // AM: 9:30a // PM: 6:30p

Seamless by Angie Smith (7 weeks)
Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Participants will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word. Each week of study features key information that ties all of scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message and is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies. Offered at Plymouth AM & PM, Grosse Ile PM, Brighton and Saline. *20 & 30 somethings will be participating in this Study

Power of God’s Names by Tony Evans (6 weeks)
Because of God’s depth of character, He has a variety of names to reflect His different capacities of relating to humanity. God is called Elohim when referenced as the all-powerful Creator. When you need provision, get to know the name Jehovah Jireh, which means God, the Provider. God has a name for any and every situation that you can find yourself in. Get to know the names of God through this six-session study because it is in knowing His character and His capacity that you will rest and discover both peace and power in His covenant care. Offered at Plymouth AM & PM and Grosse Ile AM.

Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer (7 weeks)
Having a hard time knowing what God is saying versus what others are saying? This Bible study is designed to help you know the voice of God: His language, character, and tone of voice. By growing closer to God through His Word, participants will be able to discern God’s voice from the voice of strangers. Offered at Plymouth AM & PM, Grosse Ile PM and Brighton.

Revelation by Beth Moore (11 weeks)
Here and Now…There and Then by Beth Moore is a lecture series on the book of Revelation. Beth presents many points of view, allowing women to decide for themselves when the interpretation varies among scholars. She teaches that God is as specific about what He does reveal as He is about what He does not reveal. Offered at Brighton.

Truly Fed: Finding Freedom from Disordered Eating (CARE GROUP) by Gari Meacham
Many of us struggle with poor eating habits and some of us find ourselves trapped in patterns of destructive behaviors that can range from yo-yo dieting to extreme calorie restriction or food binges. Indeed, for some of us, food has become a modern day anesthesia; numbing, dictating, distracting and ultimately enslaving, and yet God has a better plan! A plan for Freedom! With solid biblical wisdom, Truly Fed challenges women to be set free from their destructive relationships with food and to understand and embrace nourishment the way that God intended. Come and journey with us and learn how to be Truly Fed by the only One that can truly satisfy. Offered at Plymouth AM & PM.

MOTHER’S OF PRESCHOOLERS

We welcome moms of preschool children (pregnancy-through Kindergarten)…urban, suburban and rural moms, stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms… all moms who share a similar desire to be the very best moms they can be!

For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12

Sometimes we need new eyes. A perspective shift that recalibrates our hearts to the rhythm of God’s goodness surrounding us. To tune our hearts to better hear the music of the divine echoing throughout this world. That we might let that goodness seep into our bones and into our hearts so we can remember what it feels like to flourish.

We think flourishing looks a lot like:

Celebrating Lavishly: Celebrating breathes life into our days. Could it be that commemorating moments might help us to become more alive, to remember what is good and become masterful at recognizing it? How would life change to regularly invite friends into our stolen moments with uninhibited dancing and the best food, while gathered around the biggest table with the deepest conversations? Lavish celebrations can be sacred markers that help remind us who we are.

Embracing Rest: Perhaps it is time to let go of exhaustion as a status symbol and productivity as a measure of worth. What if one of the most life-giving activities that would contribute to our flourishing is welcoming rhythms of rest and play into our lives? Creating healthy rhythms in our life is one way we nourish the weary spots in our soul.

Noticing Goodness: Could it be possible that we don’t need new things but rather new eyes to see what we already have? What if we regained our sense of vision, an acute resolve to find hope in the cracks and mire of the mundane? Noticing what is good gives us the gift of perspective and reminds us the sacred is closer than we think.

We become more ourselves when we celebrate, rest and notice, and that looks a lot like flourishing. But this flourishing isn’t the precious or exhausting kind. This is a fierce flourishing. It is a deep-in-your-guts experience of gratitude and hope compelling you to raise your hands and dance freer than you ever have before. It is a fierce protection of your most important moments, an invitation to rest and an opportunity to enjoy the people who are right in front of you.

This year at MOPS, may we become a home for found wanderers, redeemed prisoners, explorers at the edge of their comfort – all of us who were one-time captives now celebrating our unearned freedom, because we have regained the eyes to see. May this year unfold into radical expressions of your own unique Fierce Flourishing.
