Crossroads Ladies Bible Studies
What an exciting time in history to be a woman of God! Each of us has been uniquely gifted by God and has a special place in the body of Christ. Our mission at Crossroads is to provide opportunities for personal spiritual growth, to build and strengthen relationships within the body, and to reach out to the community with the message of Christ's love.

We offer relevant Bible studies for women in every season of life. The studies are typically available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. Our semesters coincide with the CISD calendar and are divided into two distinct sessions. Our Spring Session runs from January through April; with varying summer activities, and the Fall Session from September through November. Join us for either one or both!

This is a great time of growing in God's word while making new friends and strengthening relationships with old ones. We encourage you to invite a friend or relative who just might need a little girl time! Whether you are simply exploring what it means to be a believer, beginning your faith journey, or have walked with the Lord for a while, there is a place for YOU!

Cost: $16                      
Author:  Beth Moore
Teacher: Dianna Lee

Join Beth in an in-depth and very personal examination of this great story of threat and deliverance. She peels back the layers of history and shows how very contemporary and applicable the story of Esther is to our lives.  If you’ve ever felt inadequate, threatened, or pushed into situations that seemed overpowering, this is the study for you.  Just as it was tough being a woman in Esther’s day, it is tough today.  This portion of God’s Word contains treasures to aid us in our hurried, harried, and pressured lives.  Esther’s destiny can be yours as you know more deeply the God who is in your corner.

Cost: $10.00
Author: Jennie Allen
Teacher: Barbara Pachman/Jeanne Giblin

Have you ever felt stuck?  Stuck trying to seem perfect.  Stuck in sadness.  Stuck feeling numb.  Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy.  Stuck in something we can’t even name.  These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and can shape our lives more than we would like to think.  We’ve been trying to fix this feeling with everything but….God.  He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him.  Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to   restore us.

WEDNESDAY CLASSES

Wising Up: Wherever Life Happens
Wednesday, 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Starts: February 5th  (7 weeks)
No Cost
Author: Beth Moore
Teacher: Elsa Dotson/Toby Corn
Limited childcare available. You will be contacted only if childcare is not available.

Wising Up is a woman’s study on the book of Proverbs.  This book is packed with God's wisdom and the short verses are easy to understand and apply to your life.  Solomon’s Proverbs showed the Israelites the right way to live, God's way. As they put this wisdom to use, they demonstrated qualities of Jesus Christ toward each other as well as setting an example for the Gentiles around them.  It’s said that many of the eternal truths in the Bible have to be carefully mined—like gold, deep underground. But Proverbs, however, is like a mountain stream littered with nuggets, just waiting to be picked up!

There is NO book to buy and NO homework.  This is a 7-week series of  DVD messages by Beth Moore with a listening guide provided for notes.  Topics include: A Call to Wise Up, The Heart of Wisdom, A Wise Friend, Learning Wisdom From a Fool, Wisdom with Words, The Wisdom of Restraint, Wisdom To Go Your Way in Safety.

Homework Commitment: None
