Gideon: Your weakness. God’s strength. is a 7 session women's Bible study by Priscilla Shirer. When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or the fleece he laid out under the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that—bigger than any one man and his mark on Israel’s history. Like everything else in the Bible, this is a story about God and His people. His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness—even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us—our lives, our doubts, our struggles, and our possibilities as believers. From a state of fear, weakness, and insecurity, Gideon emerged as Israel's hero, filled with God's presence and His passion for deliverance. This study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. In what ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, see them as the gifts that they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.
Harmony Women's Bible study is a weekly Bible study for women of all ages and stages of life. This Bible study provides an opportunity for you to be encouraged by the gospel and to form relationships with other women as you see what difference the gospel makes in all your spheres of life. Come and be strengthened as a wife, friend, co-worker, mother, and neighbor. Bring a friend or neighbor!
For those moms or grandmas who have young children, we offer a baby nursery and structured, preschool-type classes with play time and a Bible lesson. For homeschooling moms, we have a home school group for children in first grade and above.
