Summer 2021 Bible Studies

Let Them Hear the Parables of JesusOnline Study: Let Them Hear—Parables of Jesus

Wednesdays at 10 a.m. beginning June 16

Who doesn’t love hearing a good story? Jesus told many captivating parables in His earthly ministry to convey deep spiritual truths about the Kingdom of God. Purposefully designed to either reveal or conceal divine truth, Jesus said what you hear all depends on the kind of ears you have. So, are you wearing ears that are tuned in to truth or deception?

Join us this summer as we are exhorted by Christ in Mark 4:9 to “let them hear” the truths of God’s Word.

Fall 2021 Bible Studies

Precept Tuesday Bible StudyPrecept Study of Romans, Part 2

Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. beginning September 2021

Free from the guilt and power of sin, but what about the flesh? Discover how justification by faith relates to day by day living through the Holy Spirit’s power—the amazing process of sanctification (Romans 6-8).

Defending Your FaithDefending Your Faith: Empower Yourself, Your Kids & Grandkids to Stand up to the Anti-Christian Culture

Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. beginning September 2021

Today, more than ever, people are challenging Christianity by asking penetrating questions that often catch believers off-guard. We see friends and family members abandon the faith because their doubts go unanswered. They want to know how a good God can allow suffering, for example, or how the Bible can be trusted in an age of science. This class equips believers to respond to the toughest questions facing us in today’s culture, and to do it with gentleness and respect. Join us as we learn how to defend our faith in love.

Precept Wednesday Bible StudyPrecept Study of Daniel, Part 1

Wednesdays at 6 p.m. beginning September, 2021

Threatened with death, Daniel stuck to his guns and refused to adopt a pagan lifestyle. His worldview had God at the center and he lived it out even under extreme pressure to change. Learn to adopt a biblical worldview and adhere to it even when it’s not the norm.

Wednesdays at 6 p.m. beginning September 2021

Join us next fall as we walk together through the beautiful Love Letter given to us by our Heavenly Father.

Mom NetworkMom Network

January 1–May 1, 2021

Moms, are you ready to connect and deepen your relationship in Christ with other Christian moms? Stonebriar Mom Network invites you into connection through prayer, Bible study, listening, or simply quality time. The Mom Network has a group for each stage and role of motherhood.

  1. Listening Together: This is a class for moms to learn how to have a spiritual conversation with their children and to help their children hear and see God working in their lives now.
  2. Mother/Daughter Bible Study: These studies will be for small groups of a maximum of four moms and their daughters in third through fifth grade. Moms can sign up with three of their friends or chose to be grouped together with three other women. The studies will be self-facilitated by one or more of the moms in the group.
  3. Moms Encouraging Moms: Come find connection with other moms. The role of being a mother is full of challenges, blessings, and is often overwhelming. God encourages us to walk alongside one another for encouragement and to share His faithfulness. Moms who have older children desire to offer this place of companionship to encourage, pray, and care for younger moms and to share all that God has revealed to them in their seasons of being “Mom.” These will be small groups of two to four participants that meet/chat regularly to check on each other and find connection.
  4. Moms of Teens Prayer: We invite you to pray with other moms of teens. You do not have to pray pretty, out loud, or long impressive prayers. NO intimidation! We generally read a Psalm together and then pray the A.C.T.S. prayer (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication).
  5. Mommy & Me: Mommy& Me is a morning of fun activities for parents and their preschool-aged children (birth through pre-K). We typically meet one Monday morning each month from 9:30 to 11:30 during the school year.
