If you aren’t able to pick up your guide on this Sunday, copies will also be available at the Calvary front desk during regular business hours. Study guide books are $10 payable by cash or check to “Calvary Presbyterian Church”. Scholarships are available, so please do not let cost be a hindrance to your participation.

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 are welcome!
