Summer is almost here! The arrival of summer means a lot of exciting things: longer days, sunshine, vacations, farmers markets being open again, and hopefully some Saturdays by a lake or pool. But it also can mean a disruption to our routines, and thus, our spiritual disciplines. If your small group is taking a break over the summer or if you’re just looking for a new Bible study, we rounded up some recommendations to help you stay in the Word all summer long:
Devoted by Lifeway Women | 6 Sessions
Spend six sessions studying more than 30 women in Scripture whose lives have inspired generations of women in their faith and devotion to God. Their stories are a reminder that you, too, are made in the image of God, and you have an important part to play in God’s story.
Never Alone by Jeannie Cunnion | 7 Sessions
In this 7-session study by Jeannie Cunnion, discover how the Holy Spirit’s presence and power transform how you lead and love your kids. You’ll be invited to wrestle through the question, Do I really know how to parent in the power of the Holy Spirit, or have I settled for parenting in my own power? Good news, Mom! The Holy Spirit is championing you in the holy work of motherhood. Where you can’t, He can! He is faithfully at work, making the gospel irresistible to your kids. You are never alone in your pursuit to point your kids to the love of Jesus.
Everyday Theology by Mary Wiley | 8 Sessions
Theology is the study of God, what He has done, is doing, and will do in the world. And it’s not just for those with formal education or those who work at your church. It’s for you in your everyday moments, questions, and decisions. Our theology is the basis of our faith and touches every part of our existence. In this study, you will explore 8 essential doctrines and come to know God more deeply as you examine these foundational truths.
Breathe by Priscilla Shirer | 5 Sessions
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life. This study will help you set boundaries and build margin back into your life for God.
TruthFilled by Ruth Chou Simons | 7 Sessions
Join Ruth Chou Simons in her study of the book of Colossians as she leads us through a practice of preaching gospel truth to ourselves by studying Paul’s example. Today’s culture offers no shortage of self-help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.
When You Pray by Kelly Minter, Jackie Hill Perry, Jen Wilkin, Jennifer Rothschild, Jada Edwards, and Kristi McLelland | 7 Sessions | Online Bible Study begins June 29!
In this 7-session study, join with six Bible teachers who will help you study prayers in the Bible that can inspire your own. As you draw near to God through prayer, you’ll find your faith strengthened and your heart united to Christ.
