Join us this fall as we spend 7 weeks diving into the book of Lamentations. We’ll see God’s faithfulness displayed in both the judgment of Judah for their disobedience and in the promised restoration for their repentance. We will engage how grief and hope can exist side-by-side as we experience the tragedies of this life. And we’ll discover how the events and themes of Lamentations connect with those of Habakkuk (which we’ll be working through on Sunday mornings), providing us with a richer understanding of both books and the God who authored them.
Half our evening will be spent discussing that week’s passage from Lamentations. The other half will be a time of sharing our lives and lifting each other up in prayer. We hope this will be a meaningful time to connect with other women in authentic, deeper ways.
We will be utilizing Bible study tools similar to those we used a few years ago for Esther and Thessalonians. This study approach is flexible in the amount of time it requires during the week. You could spend 30 minutes on just one day and be prepared to engage the discussion on at least a basic level. Or you could spend 30 minutes every day during the week and have a fuller and richer understanding of the passage to bring to the table. It’s up to you, and it can vary from week to week. Though it is not necessary for you to be able to attend every week, each week will build on the previous—both in study content and in building relationships—so we ask that if you desire to participate you make every effort to be there as much as is possible for you.
Cost for study booklets is $5. Additionally, if you’d like to also purchase an (optional) Scripture journal of the book of Lamentations, those are available for $5.
Study begins the week of September 11th and will conclude the week of October 23rd. There will be two groups available: Mondays at 7pm at the home of Tonya Braun (1164 Freedom Cr., Sycamore). Tuesdays at 7pm at the home of Amber Hudson (639 Yorkshire Dr., DeKalb). You can register for the one that’s the best fit for you, or indicate that you’re open to either option. If you can’t make either of those days/times but are interested in the study, you can register to do the study on your own, or ask to be matched with anyone else looking for an alternate time.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask any member of the leadership team: Jeanette McNicol, Tonya Braun, Jill Mosher, and Amber Hudson
