Come along with Beth Moore on a journey to get to know both the man and the Book of James. You will never be the same again. Topics in this study include: joy, hardship, reversal of fortunes for rich and poor, wisdom, gifts from above, single-mindedness, the dangers of the tongue, humility, and prayer.

A Woman Overwhelmed

Number of Sessions: 6 (September 17-October 22)

As women, we are often overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed — not by life, but by God! In this 6-week Bible study, we’ll walk through the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, who knew what it was like to be overwhelmed. As we explore Mary’s life — from the news that she would give birth to God’s Son to the day she witnessed His tragic death on the cross — we find ourselves on a journey from overwhelming joy to overwhelming sorrow and back again, learning along the way how to be consumed with the mission of God rather than the “mission of me.”
