Study No. 3
Philippians: Unconventional Joy is a 6-week study
focusing on the joy discovered in the most unexpected places of our life,
running from January 21 — February 25, 2019
Our third study, Philippians: Unconventional Joy, focuses on the joy that can be discovered in the most unexpected places of our life. For many of us, the dark and dreary days of January and February are one of these places where we fight to discover and hold onto joy. It is our prayer that this study will help you do just that! We wrote it with the hope that you would find joy in contentment, prayer, unity and Christ. And there's no better start to the year than jumping into the Word of God!
Why should I get a Bible Study guide?
Great question, we’re so happy you asked.
Have you ever picked up the Bible (the Old and New Testaments), and thought to yourself, “Where do I even start?” Us, too. It can be overwhelming to open up the pages and dive in on your own.
Or maybe, you want to move beyond reading and start doing more studying, but you don’t know what questions to ask yourself to get to the next level of understanding.
Have you ever wanted to read the Bible alongside other women and have deeper, meaningful, spiritual conversations, but don’t know how to do it?
That’s where we come in. We’ve created our Bible Study guides to help you with each of those things. We want you to feel confident in opening your Scriptures every day. We want you to have the tools you need to really study what the Lord is saying in the pages of the Bible. We also want you to have something easy that you, your friends, and neighbors can study together, so that your relationships might grow even deeper and more meaningful. A team of women from multiple faith traditions wrote the study together with interfaith relationships in mind, so you can feel confident that sensitive topics found in the pages of the Bible are addressed with tender care.
Within our study guides you’ll find:
space to write and take notes, tips and tools for small group study,
as well as sections designed to help you write your own story of faith,
and see how God’s Word has been instrumental in your own life.
There are several ways to participate in the study and different levels of commitment, so you can tailor your study to YOU. The options for jumping into our Advent study and reading God’s Word alongside us are endless, and there’s no right or wrong way to participate! You do whatever is comfortable for you.
Whether you’re studying the Bible on your own or participating in a small group, we pray Study No. 2 will deepen your love for the Savior, and the tradition of Advent, during this holiday season.
