Women’s Bible Study begins May 21, 2017

Insanity of Obediance

A New Women’s Bible Study Class will begin May 21, 2017 at the Scottsburg United Methodist Church from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.  The materials for study will be “The Insanity of Obedience, Advancing the Gospel when facing Challenge and Persecution,” by Nik Ripkin.  There will be six sessions with breaks in the schedule for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, and the 4th of July weekend. The last session will be July 9.

How do we begin to walk and work with God, especially in dangerous places? Based on the documentary The Insanity of God, this Bible study presents missionary Nik Ripken sharing true stories of people who are suffering for the name of Jesus.
This study is an invitation to open your heart, your mind, and your eyes to the realities of walking with Jesus in difficult places. Engage with Scripture and see what it means to be a true follower of Jesus, not just someone who believes certain truths. Discover the answers to key missiological and theological questions about living sacrificially for the cause of Christ.
Believers play a significant role in God’s divine purpose. Observe how Christians all over the world are not only surviving but also thriving in the midst of persecution.

If you would like to be a part of this bible study please call or email the church office to register by Sunday May 14.  Each participant that registers will receive a workbook on the night of the first lesson.  A donation of $15.00 per participant to cover the cost of the workbook will be appreciated but not required.  When registering please include your name, address, cell phone number, & email address.  Contact the SUMC church office by phone: 812-752-3545 or email: bmaloney.sumc@gmail.com.

 

 

Luke 9:23-24

Then He said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for Me will save it.”

Being his disciple means putting aside selfish desires, shouldering one’s “cross” every day, and following Him. It is simple and yet so demanding. For the original Twelve, this meant literal suffering and death. For believers today, it means understanding that we belong to Him and that we live to serve His purposes.
