The women of RMCC want to be ever growing, learning, and cultivating a love to search out what our God has done and is doing. Our focus is on the renewing of the mind, to take captive all thought to the Lord Jesus Christ, to bring us to maturity in faith in the Lord Jesus and to love one another. Our days call for a challenging commitment to Christ. Let us take up this challenge. If we are to be followers of Christ Jesus, we must begin by humbling ourselves before the Lord and cry out for renewal. This is God's call for us. Let us answer his call with the motto of John Calvin: "Lord, I give you my heart promptly and sincerely."
We look forward to fellowship with one another and studying God's Word in order to gain knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to learn what it means to work out our salvation in everyday life. Please join us!
A Noble Wife: A Defense of Her Ministry
This is a 14-week, one-to-one discipleship curriculum written and taught by Marabee Clark. Its purpose is to instruct and encourage those women who aspire to learn and to live by God's blueprint to be a godly helper. Please contact Marabee for further information.
Women of the Word (WOW)-Women of RMCC and their friends are invited to join daytime or evening Women of the Word (WOW) Bible studies. Our purpose is to conduct a manuscript study of a book in the Bible. This study of Scripture with word analysis and life application will take us through a book in the Bible where we will learn how to study God's Word in a more in-depth manner through the inductive method, which is asking questions of observation and meaning of the text. The inductive method is a way of dialoguing with Scripture. As we read, we ask three kinds of questions: "What's going on?" "What does it mean?" "What am I called to believe or do?" These studies will lay a foundation in personal Bible study. We hope you will join us! Free childcare may be available.
How People Change-The Messiness of Living in a Fallen World and the Shocking Hope of Change
Authors Paul David Tripp and Timothy S. Lane have designed a practical curriculum based on their book, How People Change. Used in conjunction with this book and the companion participant's workbook, leaders will find this twelve-lesson guide to be fully comprehensive in scope and readily adaptable for small groups, Sunday school, youth groups, church-wide training sessions or one-on-one discipleship.
How People Change delves into the truth of the gospel and applies it to the messiness of living in a fallen world. With this curriculum you come face to face with your own heart, examine the fruit of your life in Christ and grow in love for others. You will be challenged-and moved-by the shocking hope that the gospel can change anyone!
Topics include: united to Christ, change is a community project, life as God sees it, change as God does it, heat in the real world, thorns that entangle us, the Cross gives new identity and potential, bearing fresh fruit through real heart change,
This study provides excellent lesson content, homework discussion, CPR - Central truth/Personal application/Relationships application, detailed illustrations, group discussion guide, and "Make it Real" life applications.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope-the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
