Join the Bible Cafe™ as we study Elijah: Spiritual Stamina in Every Season by Melissa Spoelstra. This new online Bible study begins September 24, 2018 in our FREE Facebook group and will be available on-demand from our membership site (author videos not included).
Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day it can feel like everything is falling apart. Then there are those in between days when we’re coasting along without much thought to the highs or lows. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. One moment he was hiding out in the wilderness during a famine, being fed by the ravens, and the next he was on the mountaintop where God showed up in a powerful way with fire and then rain. Even Elijah grew weary of all the ups and downs, telling God, “I have had enough” (1 Kings 19:4). He needed spiritual stamina in order to keep on going and fulfill all the plans God had for his life. We do too!
Elijah Bible Study for Women
In this six-week study grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him to hold on and persevere in faith, including practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting his circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was his ultimate legacy. Whether we’re currently in a mountaintop season where we’re experiencing God’s power and blessing, a valley season where we feel like running away, or somewhere in between, Elijah’s life will inspire us to go the distance in the life of faith. Best of all, his story will challenge us but not shame us, because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. As we study his life, we will grow in faith and develop spiritual stamina that will help us not only to survive but actually thrive in every season.
The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer. You’ll read the lessons at home and join an online discussion group led by Womens Bible Cafe™ leaders.
You’ll join us from home, your minivan, or your office.. no need to get dressed up for this Bible study!
We have women around the world joining us right where they are. No hassles getting to the Womens Bible Cafe™. No designated small group with a leader you might not like. Select your own small groups, decide when you want to attend, and grow in faith as the Holy Spirit teaches and moves during these online discussions.
Best of all, if you miss your regular small group because of another event, all you need to do is attend any of the other groups during the week. All groups are open attendance and everyone is welcome…the Bible Cafe™ is available for women seeking more Jesus.
Our talented team of small group leaders directed by Sonya Morris Nelson consists of theology students, pastor’s wives, certified Bible teachers, missionaries and more!
