We are slowly working our way through a series on Women in the Bible. In August and September, we focused Old Testament women– living a patriarchal culture, the stories still depicted fierce, cunning, courageous, bright women. They did bold things to move Israelite history forward.
Throughout October and September, we will read about New Testament women. You might notice a shift in the depiction of women. These women did not play the same powerful roles played just a few books earlier. Instead we meet women who too often remain unnamed, asking Jesus to heal them or finding quieter roles in Paul’s early church. These stories have a different tone, but as we sit with them, we can celebrate how women were seen by Jesus and empowered to do God’s work.
August and September we focused on the theme of Home. September 13, we celebrated Homecoming. We will hears from our member’s talking about home. Watch our Homecoming video here:
