Fierce Bible study
The word fierce is trendy. It is used to describe women who are extreme athletes, high-level executives or supermodels. Women at the top of their game. But what about the rest of us? Can we be fierce? Absolutely! In fact, women like us have been changing the world for thousands of years—many who received little fanfare yet lived fiercely anyway. In this study we will look at lesser-known female characters in the Bible and the ways they changed the world by living into God’s calling, including:
- The midwives of Egypt (Shiphrah and Puah), who made hard decisions in the face of evil;
- Deborah, who was an unlikely and powerful leader;
- Naaman's slave girl, who bravely points others to God's healing power;
- The woman at the well, who boldly repented and shared her faith;
- Lois and Eunice, who parented with intentionality and effectiveness;
- Dorcas, who showed kindness to those in need.
As we explore their lives, we will discover how we too can live into our callings, honor the Lord and even change the world through our courage, faithfulness, and obedience.
Women are invited to study fierce women at 10 a.m. on Wednesdays beginning March 1 and ending April 12. Click here to register.
