WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY

Thursday evenings in the Leighton Church Library from 6:30-8:00 p.m. starting September 27th.

All women are invited to come for an evening of fellowship and study of the Book of Romans.

The study will be broken up into 2 sessions:

Chapters 1-7: September 27th-November 15th

Chapters 8-16: Study begins January 10, 2019

Why study Romans?  Well, everyone wants to be all right – to be in right standing or “righteous.”  We want to be right in the eyes of the law of our land, so we stay out of trouble.  We want to be righteous in the eyes of those we respect and those we live among so we act, speak and dress in ways which are expected and acceptable.  But there is another, far better righteousness-the righteousness that Paul’s letter to the church in Rome is all about.  It is a righteousness which we all need, which all those other righteousnesses are pointers to, which changes and liberates every aspect of our lives.

It is to be right with God-to enjoy knowing him now, and to be able to look forward to enjoying knowing him forever.  Paul’s teaching about this gift of being right with God will lead us to discover why, however religious we may be, we are not naturally righteous; how it is that, in Christ, God makes the unrighteous righteous.

Friends and family welcome!  Sign up here to attend this study.  Books are $7.00 each.  Payment is due at the first meeting.
