Bible Study

Hi Everybody!

God has some exciting changes in store for Rocky Point. You will be hearing more and more about what He has in store for the church at large! It's going to be great - so get ready! A small part of what's to come is that the church will be offering more choices on Sunday night to the body. You've heard us talk about giving the women choices by offering a primary study along with a support study. This is similar but on a larger scale and in conjuction with other ministries. Sunday nights will bring something new, exciting, and diverse to the Rocky Point Family! Meetings/Bible studies held during the week will all eventually move to Sunday nights. This will be a gradual occurrence.

What does this mean for us, the women's ministry, specifically? Our monday night study will be moved to Sunday night. Our time of study will 'look' the same. We will just meet on Sunday nights instead of Monday nights. We will continue to offer Tuesday morning as usual. Childcare will be offered as usual.

It means diversity and choices on Sunday nights:

*worship and a message with the 12 men who alternate on Sunday nights
*support studies/bible studies for men, women, and couples (women's ministry studies, growing kids, financial peace, accountability groups, discipleship, point man, etc)

The positive stuff!
*more choices and opportunity to study and grow together
*moving our Monday night study to Sunday night means one less day we are away from our families as most are already at church Sunday nights
*We are just scraping the surface here on what the Lord has in store for us!

There is much more to come and it's exciting stuff! The Lord has spoken a vision for the church and our leadership will be sharing more of it with you soon. Sunday night support ministry is just a small portion of it. Email or call Sarah, Nicky, or myself if you have any questions at all. Always know, too, that you can talk to any elder, Gary, Alan, Art, or Brandon anytime. We are excited beyond excited and cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store.

Please remember Gary, Art, Alan, elders, deacons, and ministry leaders in your prayers as they walk faithfully and obediently to carry out this vision. I'm thankful that our leadership is so visionary and will obediently step out when God leads.

Think outside the box, girls! Think outside the box!
