(Women’s Class) Surrendering the Secret, Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion

12:00am - 12:00am

by Pat Layton Surrendering the Secret provides a personal class experience helping women find the path to healing through honest, interactive Bible study; meaningful group experiences; unique journaling exercises; and confidential, caring community. Many women hide the secret of abortion deep in their hearts. They carry a great burden of shame and failure, afraid to reveal their hidden pain, and by doing so are forced to endure the long-lasting effects of abortion in isolation. The Surrendering the Secret Bible Study is a trust journey through the Word of God where women are allowed to release this burden and find freedom. While experiencing hope and joy, shame and failure are replaced with beauty and freedom. Please visit www.surrenderingthesecret.com to see what God is doing through this ministry across the nation.

(Women’s Class) Bible Literacy Workshop

Wednesday, 6:15pm - 7:30pm | 2154 Loop 337 New Braunfels TX 78130

Do you lack desire to study the Bible? Do you struggle to locate different books of the Bible? Do you question whether the Bible is complete? Do you wonder if Old Testament laws still apply to us today? Do you realize that the book of Psalms shows us how to express our emotions to God? Do you know the original audience of each Old Testament prophet? Do you know that the New Testament addresses cultural issues that are still relevant today? If questions like these inhibit your study of God’s Word join us for a Bible Literacy Workshop. Rather than studying a particular topic or passage of Scripture we will spend our time exploring the mechanics of God’s Word. Learn how to become a student of the Bible rather than just a reader of the Bible so that you may grow closer to God through His Word. 

Facilitator: Jenny Hander Length 8 weeks. Cost: N/A 

Start Date: 8/29/18 Time: 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. & Winter Start Date: 1/16/19 at 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Location: Adult Education Building Room 101
