For Such a Time as This

Bible Study on God's Timing. 3 sessions. 20 pages. By Miriam Maassel Neumann. Leader Guide available with optional retreat plan and coloring page.

Esther went from an orphan to a queen. Joseph went from a slave to being second only to the King in all the land of Egypt. They both had ups and downs in their lives. This is typical of most of our lives as well.  God has a plan for each of us, which eventually unfolds in His time and manner.  His plans and purposes surface at exactly the right time.

Esther and Joseph were just two of many Biblical characters who had things happen in their earlier lives that prepared them for the special purpose God had planned for them. This Bible study looks at Esther’s story, Joseph’s story, and then offers the opportunity to reflect our own personal stories and consider how events in our lives have prepared us for the plan and purpose God has for our lives. 

This three part Bible study with an optional retreat planning guide was written by Miriam Neumann. It looks at Esther’s Story, Joseph’s Story and then at our story.  A leader’s guide is included as well as a bonus coloring page.

Every Picture Can Tell God's Story

Bible Study on Witnessing, 6 sessions. 35 pages. By Diane Grebing.

What use do you make of the photographs you’ve taken or received? Have you used them as a way to witness Jesus’ saving love and God’s power and provision in our lives? The images you’ve captured through the lens of your camera can tell God’s story in a unique, creative, and compelling way.

The six sessions of this study are designed to open your eyes to new ways in which you can be a winsome witness of Jesus using your own personal photographs and experiences. Images captured in the past can help you tell God’s story of salvation with meaning and conviction.

At the conclusion of the study you will have made your own personal Witness Album to share with friends and acquaintances.

Mountaintop Journeys with Jesus

Bible Study on Comfort and Hope, 7 sessions. 42 pages. By Rev. Robert Selle.

null

Sharing experiences in his work as a LCMS missionary, author, Rev. Robert Selle, serves as a guide for seven journeys with Jesus in this Bible study. Written for group or individual study.

The aim of this Bible study is to take mountaintop journeys with Jesus — actually seven of them — to visit some of the mountains that marked His earthly sojourn among us and, throughout our travel, to remember and celebrate His unconditional love for us. When you ascend to such heights, the view is fantastic! We can see a long, long way! With such an expansive overview, it’s easier to put things into the proper perspective. We sometimes get so caught up in the “busyness” of this work-a-day world that, as the expression goes, “we can’t see the forest for the trees.” We have trouble setting priorities. We put first things last, and last things first. We forget our Savior. We lose hold of His hand and get lost in the wastelands. Sometimes it’s so necessary just to stand back and “get you up into a high mountain.”  

Lesson One: MOUNTAINTOP OF REVELATION | Birth of Jesus
Lesson Two: MOUNTAINTOP OF INSPIRATION | Jesus at the Temple
Lesson Three: MOUNTAINTOP OF VICTORY OVER TEMPTATION | Temptation of Jesus
Lesson Four: MOUNTAINTOP OF TRANSCENDENCE | Transfiguration
Lesson Five: MOUNTAINTOP OF RECONCILIATION | Crucifixion
Lesson Six: MOUNTAINTOP OF MISSION | Ascension
Lesson Seven: MOUNTAINTOP OF MYSTERY | On the Last Day
