Seminar With Dr. Barbara Hill
The Apostle Paul The First Christian Feminist
The relationship between Paul the Apostle and women is an important element in theological debate, in large part because Paul was the first writer to give directives about the role of women in the Church. The gospels record women as being some of the earliest followers of Christ and certainly had roles within ministry in the first century, and yet today we still struggle with opinion and our understanding of Paul’s guidance with regards to the role of women in the church.
Join us for this two-session seminar on the Apostle Paul as we dive deep into his teachings on Women. Session 1 will take an intensive look at what Paul actually said and consider how, or what, we understand in light of the context and intention of his writings. You’ll leave this session with a broader view of Paul’s teachings and materials to take-home for further consideration. Session 2 will focus on a more interactive question and answer session where, together, we’ll discuss the issue on how Paul’s teaching affects us today and what the biblical truths are for Christian women, their role in the church, and how we can constructively and biblically influence a culture that seems to be losing its way.
Women In The Word
One of the core programs of our Women’s Ministry at Springvale is our weekly Bible studies. These studies are an opportunity for women in our church and in our community to come together to dig deeply into the word of God. The mornings are designed to allow women to minister to one another through discussion of relevant and biblically based topics. To share, to learn, and to pray together.
Spring 2023 Bible Study: The Gospel on the Ground- A Study in Acts.
Come along with biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland as she unpacks the life of the early church in the book of Acts and show us that the kingdom of God is always on tee move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. Explore the call of Jesus to His disciples then and to us today.
We all have a story to tell. Our testimony is sharing our life’s experiences; the good, the bad and the ugly and how God intercedes to give us a new story through Jesus. A new hymn of praise, a new voice with which we worship and honour Him! Psalm 40 is a place to for women to share and hear stories of God restoring brokenness to beauty and beyond. God doesn’t want our perfection He wants our heart and our voice. Psalm 40:2-3 “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.”
REVIVE, is a ministry that challenges women to seek God with determined purpose; to awaken a generation of women who really, authentically believe what we SAY we believe – and are ready to live transformed, for His Glory.
God calls us to share our lives, our experience and our perspectives with other women. Join us for MentHer Circles where we reconnect and experience the beauty of mentorship as we come together to discuss our thoughts on current relevant topics.
