Ladies' Morning Break Bible Study

Greetings LifePoint Ladies!

My name is Mary Ann DeMotte and I would like to introduce many of you to a Bible study being held at LifePoint on Thursday mornings from 9:30am to 11:00am.

We are called Ladies' Morning Break Bible Study. Some of us have been meeting together to study God's Word for over 20 years. We have been completely through the Scriptures once and now are tackling them in chronological order. So early we began with Genesis, picked up Job right before Genesis 12 when God's call to Abraham and now continue. We are now in the books of 2 Samuel and concurrent with these passages are ones from 1Chronicles and the Psalms.

It's been an exciting ride through the Scriptures this way. We have looked at the Psalms David wrote while hiding from those who would take his life. It helps make them much more meaningful when studied in context.

We are a group of ladies of all ages. We have young moms, we have great-grandmothers and those in between. We do offer childcare for our little ones. Sometimes this means a grandchild that you may be caring for or your own sweet little ones.

We are interdenominational. There are several of us from LifePoint and with us are Methodists, Presbyterians, Independent Christian church, and Catholics.

We work off a study guide which is a lesson sheet of questions prepared before and distributed either via email or through distribution of hard copies at class. All you need is your Bible, something to write with and a desire to know God's Word.

We send around a prayer request/blessing sheet for any who have needs and copy it so that each of us takes home one to pray over during the next week. We also collect money to pay our faithful babysitter, Maddie. Usually, the ladies put a dollar or two in the "babysitting baggy".

After class, some of us gather for lunch at a local fast food place or other restaurant.

There is never a bad time to join us. We certainly welcome new members at any stage of Christian growth. Some of us are lifetime Christians, some only a few weeks. God calls each of us to know Him better through His Word. 2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

Each of you are invited to come check us out at any time. We meet through the summer months. We do take occasional Thursdays off, so please check with me. You can contact me with questions of any kind at maryanndemotte@gmail.com or via my cell 317-626-4740. I would love to speak with you!
