Wednesday Bible Study
WRESTLING GOD: Both Morning and Evening with Pastor Jonna Fantz
God seems to enjoy going toe to toe with his human creatures. Take a look at three stories among many where human beings physically, verbally, or prayerfully struggled with God in turning point moments in their lives. We’ll start with the iconic story of Jacob and then in the light of that story look at Moses and Hannah as they engaged God in this intimate and life-changing discipline that has ramifications with our own spiritual lives.
February 9: Jacob Wrestles, Genesis 32:3-33:20
February 16: Moses Wrestles, Exodus 3-4:17
February 23: Hannah Wrestles, 1 Samuel 1-2:11, 2:18-21
Bible Art Journaling
When: 2nd Thursday of the month, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Starting October 14
Where: Kathy’s home
What: Explore a new, visual way to respond to Scripture. Kathy sends out a weekly Bible verse every Friday. Participants meditate on this verse until they have a visual image (drawing, painting, collage, picture from a magazine, etc.) to add to their Bible art journal. At the monthly meetings, we share our pages, and pray for one another.
