"Faithful Abundant True" by Kay Arthur, Priscilla Shirer & Beth Moore

God is faithful. His provision is abundant. His promises are true. These are the themes of the FC Women’s Ministry Winter 2019 Bible study. Join us as we study these topics with two weeks each of Kay Arthur, Priscilla Shirer, and Beth Moore followed by a panel discussion with all three teachers. This 7 week study was recorded live at a conference and each teacher provides two weeks of study in a brief format that will take most women 15 to 30 minutes daily. 


• Kay Arthur teaches from basically, the entire book of Hebrews! Hebrews is both an example of God's faithfulness and a challenge to believers to be faithful in difficult times.

• Priscilla Shirer teaches from Ephesians 3:20-21 on God's abundance. A fundamental basis for every believer is the absolute reality that God can do whatever He chooses to do. God's ability empowers our faithfulness.

• Beth Moore teaches on the topic of discernment. In these difficult days it is absolutely essential that we learn to trust the Holy Spirit to enable us to determine what is true and what is false.

"Seamless: Understanding the Bible as One Complete Story"

Do you ever get nervous when it’s your turn to start reading or interpreting Scripture? What about when the names become unpronounceable, the context gets lost or the stories feel unfamiliar to you?


Whether you’ve grown up hearing Bible stories or you’re exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming, and the 66 books may seem disconnected at first glance. In this study, Angie Smith shows you how the whole Bible — from Genesis through Revelation — connects as one beautiful, seamless thread.


Over the course of six weeks, this study will help you:

  • Erase the belief that you aren’t smart or spiritual enough to know God’s Word as you gain more confidence in your understanding of Scripture. 
  • Stop getting lost in the details of individual books of the Bible by learning how they all fit together into one big story.
  • Connect with the people, places and promises of God’s Word in a fresh way with interactive maps, illustrations and daily questions.
