Women's Bible Study at Indian Rocks 2019




Knowing Jesus….desiring to do everyday life with Him


See How Jesus Fully Satisfies The Cry Of Your Heart A 6-Session Study From
Best-Selling Author Lysa TerKeurst

January 15, 2019-February 19, 2019

Study available:

Tuesdays at 9:00am and 7:00pm and

Wednesdays at 3:00pm and 6:45pm

What is the deep cry of your heart? That ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? The prayer you keep repeating?

Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, but He also wants to step in and see you through it.

Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John.

Through this interactive, in-depth study, you will learn to:

  • Trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
  • Stop living like a slave to your circumstances by training your heart to embrace the life-giving freedom God wants for you.
  • Gain a better understanding of how Jesus' words 2,000 years ago are so very applicable to the answers we are searching for today.
