God of Creation – A Study of Genesis 1-11 by Jen Wilkin
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Where did everything come from? Why are we here? Why is the world so broken? How can that brokenness be made right? In its first 11 chapters, the Book of Genesis addresses our deepest questions, declaring to us a transcendent God and shaping our understanding of the Bible as a whole. God of Creation – A Study of Genesis 1-11 is an 11-session study written by Jen Wilkin. Join us as we walk through Genesis 1-11, searching these familiar passages for their larger meaning in the story of Scripture and in the life of every believer. We are going to cultivate a worshipful understanding of our holy, Creator God; explore Genesis as the place where the story of redemption begins; trace the themes of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration.
This study will meet in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday mornings beginning September 12 from 9:30-Noon. Childcare is available. Contact Marty Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-907-0074 for more information.

Through the biblical principles in this course, God can teach you how to know when God is speaking to you, recognize His activity around you, and adjust your life to Him and His Ways.
We meet on Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m. at the Hemby House. This is a Woman’s Bible Study/Life Group. Each week we savor His Word, pray for one another and support one another as Beautiful Sisters-in-Christ. We invite you to join us!
