“Presbyterian Women understands that scripture asks us to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. As such, Presbyterian Women provides information about justice and peace and ministry to inform mission and community-building work.”
In 2017-2018, Presbyterian Women at Covenant will be studying the Community of Christ in Hebrews – titled, CLOUD OF WITNESSES. The study challenges us to look at the various communities that we as individuals relate to, as well as how we are “in community.” According to the Horizons description of the study, “The community for which the letter, or homily, was written interacts, in a sense, with all communities of which we are a part, as we bring these groups with us wherever we go. This ever-present ‘great cloud of witnesses’ (Heb. 12:1) strengthens and encourages us as we ‘run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith’ (Heb. 12: 1b-2).”
Hebrews has a powerful message for all of us that speaks to the church of today and tomorrow just as it did to the church of yesterday. Join this conversational study on the first Thursday of each month at 9:30 AM at the church. Study books are available for $11.00.
Presbyterian Women meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 9:30 AM and will be immersed in the study from September to June. Horizons Bible study is written so that lay people can lead the study and includes helps for the leaders at the end of each lesson, as well as additional helps in the Horizons magazine. Come join in as we all learn more about Jesus.
