Children's Ministry Worker Application
January 1st - December 31st, 2018
Thank you for having the desire to love, serve, and teach the children at Sovereign Grace Church. We take the teaching and protection of children seriously. We want every parent who leaves their child in our care to rest assured that our volunteers are trained and screened to ensure safe care. It is for this reason that we require the following questions, background checks, and screenings for those that desire to serve in our children’s ministry.
This form is to be submitted by all volunteers who will be serving in ANY capacity in Sovereign Grace Church's Children's Ministry, including, but not limited to:
1. Sunday Grace Kids classes
2. Various meetings requiring childcare volunteers
3. Ministries directly involving the care and oversight of minors
Ephesians Women's Bible Study
August 27th - November 26th, 2018
"Ephesians consists of only six chapters ... It contains only 155 verses. It will take you about 20 minutes to read the whole thing out loud. Yet we find divine beauty and power in this little book." - Tony Merida
The apostle Paul wrote this letter to the Ephesian believers focusing on who they are in Christ and how they are now to live in light of their new identity. Join us for 14 weeks as we take our time going line by line through this precious letter.
This is a discussion-based study where we will be reading, studying, and annotating the scriptures on our own and then reading the commentary from Tony Merida in his book Christ-Centered Exposition: Exalting Jesus In Ephesians. If you choose to provide your own workbook, this is the book you need to order.
You will see an option to add on the ESV Scripture Journal: Ephesians to your registration. For this study, I highly recommend a printed copy of the text that has enough space for you to mark up. These Scripture Journals from Crossway are an excellent resource for this very need! I personally use their Acts Scripture Journal for our current sermon series at Sovereign Grace.
Daniel Women's Bible Study
October 1st - November 12th, 2018
The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials.
Beth Moore's Daniel Bible study provides a personal study experience five days a week plus viewer guides for the group video sessions of this in-depth women's Bible study. Join us for a faith-building study of prophecy and learn how to live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society.
This Old Testament Bible study is broken into two parts. The first portion, from Daniel chapters 1-6, deals with Daniel's life as he faced the kind of pressures and temptations Christians encounter today. Daniel models how to develop enduring integrity in an enticing world. This is the portion that we will be studying this fall.
The second portion, chapters 7-12, explores thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Jesus Christ. We will continue with this portion of the study in the spring.
Books available online or through Lifeway bookstores.
