Women of Calvary Bible Study

March 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

The Women of Calvary Bible Study meets on the third Thursday of the month starting on September 16, 2021. We will meet via Zoom through January and reassess in early February about whether we will be in-person in the spring. Email Rev. Joann H. Lee at joannlee@calpres.org for the link if you’d like to join remotely.

This year’s Bible Study theme is “What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus” by Merryl Blair.

This 9-lesson study, beginning September 2021 and ending in May 2022, encourages us to consider the foremothers of Jesus: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary.

Matthew’s genealogy names these women for a reason. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place?

What can these Grandmothers-of-the-Faith teach us? Their stories will lead us into the gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ. By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.

Women of all ages welcome!
