Something in us aches for more – more hope, more joy, more freedom. Soon complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we’re not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way. In this Melissa Spoelstra’ study of the Book of Numbers, we’ll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. By exploring Numbers we can come to identify the reasons for our complaining, learn contentment while being authentic about the difficulties of life, accept short-term hardship in light of the greater good of God’s ultimate deliverance, recognize the relationship between complaining and worry, and discover how to realign with God’s character and promises.
While Christ Memorial focuses on Immerse: Beginnings (the first five books of the Bible), the Wednesday morning WOW groups will dig deeper into the book of Numbers. Women of all ages are invited to join this study.
With our Wednesday Morning WOW offering, you will be connecting with a delightful group of women who love to study, seeking personal transformation and growth in their walk with God. For this study (regardless of which group option you have chosen) discussions will be focused on the DVD content on the week the DVD is shown and discussions of the study material will occur on the alternating week.
On weeks that the DVD is shown, both the 166 group and the 167 group will gather together as one combined group in Room 167 to view the DVD before breaking into discussion groups. On alternate weeks participants will meet in the group setting they have chosen (see group options) to discuss personal homework for this study. For more information, contact Lori Baker or 796-3361.
