PW meet the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Parlor.
Presbyterian Women Begin a New Bible Study in January.
“God wants to give you a beautiful gift called Sabbath. Will you create the capacity to receive it?” This is the challenge that Carol Bechtel, author of our 2023 Bible study, poses to each of us.
All women of the church are invited to join the Presbyterian Women on the second Wednesday of each month as we delve into “Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight”.
In the nine lessons of this Bible study—with passages from Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, and Acts—we’ll consider Sabbath
as a celebration, not a day of dreary formality
as God’s intent for all of creation that includes busy women too
as one day of the week, perhaps a Sunday
as a time to surrender unhealthy striving and frantic busyness, and instead trust that God will provide
as a reminder that life is precious and working too much is against God’s plans for our precious lives
as a day devoted to community and justice and not exclusively to self-care.
Ultimately, Sabbath reminds us to honor God who honors us by giving us a day each week to reset our pace, our priorities, and our lives.
