There is a righteousness which changes and liberates every aspect of our lives, and yet which none of us can earn or maintain ourselves. It is a righteousness from God.  
Romans 1-7 shows us why we don t have it, why we need it, and how we can receive it.   
These seven studies will help you to understand one of the most-read, most written-about parts of the Bible. And, as they enable you to, you unwrap God's precious gift of right standing with him, they will transform your hearts, lives, identities and perspectives.

Romans 1-7 for You" by Tim Keller.  Facilitated by Carolyn Mayo.  Cost of book is $18. 

 

The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God as we watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.  The study revisits familiar stories and historical figures challenge your basic knowledge and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator. 

Facilitated by Tracy Beers and Susan Stohrer. Cost of Women of the Word and God of Creation is $22. 

 

Women long for relational connection with women further ahead of them on the journey. Yet, without realizing it, many of us tend to distance ourselves from those in younger generations. Can we really have close relationships with women who have different thoughts on church, different experiences with family, and different ways of talking about God? Where do we start?  In A Friend in Me, Pam Lau shows you how to be a safe place for the women in your life. She offers five patterns women need to internalize and practice for initiating relationships and talking about issues such as faith, forgiveness, sexuality, and vocation. Most significantly, she reminds you that there doesn’t need to be a divide between generations of women. Together, we can have a global impact—and experience a deeper faith than we’ve ever known. 

Facilitated by Nan Woods.  Cost of book is $10.

In this helpful guide, Alice Fryling offers an introduction to the Enneagram and shows how knowing it can lead to transformation by revealing to us both our false and our true selves. She writes: "Knowledge of the Enneagram has led me to the grace of God. I discovered through the Enneagram that I am not just my gifts, I am not just my failures, I am a person created by God, loved by God, and uniquely gifted to love others with God's merciful and gracious love. Through the Enneagram God has taught me that I am not exactly who I think I am. . . . The Enneagram itself does not make me a different person. But knowledge of the Enneagram does help me see who I truly am and offers me words to describe how I would like to be transformed by God's grace." With questions for reflection and personal meditations aimed at leading you into deeper self-awareness, Mirror for the Soul will give you new perspective on yourself and reveal how you can experience God's love more abundantly. 

Mirror for Your Soul:  A Christian Guide to the Enneagram" by Alice Fryling.  Facilitated by Sally Simon.  Cost is $14.

Too many of us have invested ourselves into relationships where things have gone wrong.  You may have experienced being judged, manipulated, controlled, or worse. The impact of being with an unsafe person can be damaging to your confidence, your trust in others, and even your health. And what's more, we either repeat the same mistakes of judgment over and over, or else simply give up on trying to have great, authentic relationships again. Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer solid guidance for making safe choices in relationships, from family to friendship, romance and work. They help identify the healthy and growing people we all need in our lives, as well as ones we need to learn to avoid. Safe People will help you to recognize traits of relationally untrustworthy people and discover what makes some people relationally safe, as well as how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You'll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security, and you'll find out how to develop a balanced approach to relationships. 

Safe People:  How to Find Relationships That Are Good for You and Avoid Those That Aren't" by Henry Cloud.  Facilitated by Nan Woods at her home. Cost of book is $10.
