Women's Bible Study-
  Fourth Tuesday of the month, 7:00 p.m.
All women are invited to the monthly Women’s Bible Study on June 25th in room 207. This Summer’s theme: Lessons from Esther. The book of Esther is one of the latest writings of the Old Testament, perhaps written to inspire Jews who had been scattered in the diaspora. The narrative takes place in the court of the King of Persia, King Ahasuerus. Some think that it was written to explain and establish the Jewish festival of Purim. SESSION ONE: For Such a Time as This: Esther the Queen—Voices in the King’s Court. Session one sets the scene for the story of Esther and her adopted father, Mordecai. Esther and Mordecai are Jews living under the rule of the Persian king, King Ahasuerus. When Esther becomes the queen, her faith is tested. The Jews, those who have been carried off from their homeland, struggle with living as strangers in a foreign land. In this session we will think about how our culture may challenge our faith.

Thursday Bible Study- Thursdays, 10 a.m.
Our study this summer will be on hiatus for June and July.  We will reconvene August 1st as we focus on the book of 2 Corinthians.   



Book Club- 3rd Thursday of the month, 7:00 p.m.
The House of Prayer book club will meet on June 20th in room 207. The book for June is "Crazy, Rich Asians" by Kevin Kwan, a Clear Lake High School graduate.
The book's premise: When New Yorker Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country’s most eligible bachelor. On Nick’s arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.
