As we begin a new year, the resolution we hear over and over again tends to sound something like this, “This year I’m going to get in shape and shed those unwanted pounds…” and many of us will jump through hoops to reach our latest diet and exercise goals, which is quite beneficial to our physical bodies! But when it comes to spiritual growth, we often lack the drive or passion to get in (and stay in) shape; stretching our minds by growing in the knowledge and wisdom of Christ through His word.
If you’re considering visiting or have recently started attending our church, let me further explain Midweek studies to you.
Grand Parkway, unlike many churches, does not have Wednesday night services year round. Instead, we offer Midweek studies—and the chance to attend one only comes around twice a year. These studies meet in the fall & spring and take a break during the summer and winter months. These smaller group studies are a great opportunity to get involved beyond Sunday morning worship service, and you’ll get to know some new folks—regardless of how long you’ve attended our church!
This semester, we are offering a variety of studies for all adults (which I'll post below) on Wednesday nights as well as some Tuesday morning women’s studies. These 8 studies will run for 11 weeks and end just before the summer months kick-in and you leave for vacation! (Also, classes don’t meet during spring break; the week of March 15).
During our Tuesday morning studies, we offer childcare (by reservation) for kids birth–4th grade. On Wednesday nights, along with childcare (also by reservation) we have great things happening for your kids and students during the same hour.

I BELIEVE: STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE
We rarely strengthen our core beliefs, but this study, based on a book by J.I. Packer, will help fill that gap. We will deepen our knowledge of the core tenets of the Christian faith so that we can stand firm when trials and false theologies come our way.

A WOMAN'S HEART: GOD'S DWELLING PLACE

• What you should know before registering for this study:
This class is designed for those who can commit to completing homework between meetings. This consists of 5 daily assignments per week that include bible reading, journaling, Q&A and application time, which typically takes 45–60 min per day. We'll encourage and hold each other accountable so that we hear not what Beth or Camille have to say, but instead what God is saying to each of us during the course of this study.
