“Uninvited” – A Women’s Book Study

Wednesdays, 6:30pm – 8:30pm (Weekly through July 12th) in the Community Outreach Center

You are invited to Uninvited! Sometimes we feel left out, lonely, and less than. God wants us to “live loved.” In this six-session video Bible study, New York Times Best Selling Author Lysa TerKeurst digs deep into God’s Word. She helps us explore the roots of rejection, and the truth about what it looks like to live loved.

Lysa will take us on a visual journey in the Holy Land to some of the places where people of the Bible such as Hannah, David, and even Jesus lived and walked. Uninvited reminds us we are destined for a love that can never be diminished, tarnished, shaken or taken – a love that does not reject or uninvite. Participants will need to purchase the Uninvited study guide, but do not need to purchase the book. Our guide will have all of the materials we need.

Sessions Include:

  1. Living Loved
  2. Empty or Full?
  3. The Yoke of God is Freedom
  4. Set Apart
  5. Remembering God’s Presence
  6. Lessons from the Olive

Resources You’ll Need:
