Calling all Ladies, 

I am very excited about the new winter bible study that we will be offering beginning January 13 and 14th. Priscilla has written a new bible study on Elijah – Faith and Fire —
Old Testament heroes are best known for their most celebrated moments: Moses dividing the Red Sea; David slaying Goliath; Gideon routing an insurmountable army; Joshua marching around the defiant walls of Jericho. And Elijah—calling down fire on Mount Carmel.

Blinded by the remarkable narratives of our biblical heroes, we can forget they each had a backstory—months and years of development, even difficulty, which fortified their spiritual muscle and prepared them for the tasks that made their lives unforgettable.

Please join me on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.

We will learn to:
• Understand the value of seasons of growth and testing in your spiritual maturity.
• Be encouraged to wait on God’s good work in your heart and mind, even in seasons when you feel like no one sees.

• Learn to trust in the goodness and faithfulness of God and His purposes for your life.

This study will be offered on Wednesday morning on zoom at 9 AM and Thursday morning in person at 9 AM. Please sign up either at the church or online so we know how many to prepare for, if you choose to do the study on zoom contact the church office to get the zoom ID code and password. If you would be interested in doing an evening study would you please email marsha@clclayton.org so I can determine the interest to see if we can make an evening class available.

You can preorder your book on Amazon for $16.99 plus tax or we will have them in the church office when they are available. The study has not been released yet but should be on January 4th, you can preorder your book and they will ship it as soon as it is available.
