Attached is the article that I mentioned during yesterday's sermon. In case you weren't there, we looked at the letter of Philemon. As a follow up to it's slavery theme, I wanted to address the issue of what it means to be a slave to Christ during the sermon on Sept. 7th. In preparation to that I am asking everyone to read the article by Hill and to interact with the questions interspersed throughout the article (highlight by "stop"). Please don't miss the final questions at the end of the article. Click to download Inside_My_Slavery_Alex_Hill.pdf

Women's Bible Study Fall 2014
Begins Thursday, September 11, 9:15-11:30 a.m.
Something New! Change is coming to the Thursday Morning Women's Bible Study this fall. We will be offering
two study tracks in an effort to better meet the needs of the women at Charlton Baptist Church. We will still meet together for coffee and fellowship at 9.15 a.m., but then divide into two study groups at 9:30 to concentrate on different topics, as outlined below:
Topic One: Judges and Ruth. We'll be using a study guide by Timothy Keller to look at a time of murder, massacre, immorality and unfaithfulness that is so graphically portrayed in the book of Judges. The amazing message of this book is that God is merciful and patient, and rescues His people over and over again. It points to the greatest rescue of all, achieved through Jesus Christ. This study is six weeks.
Of course, ordinary people were suffering through the time of the Judges, and one of them was Ruth,
a young vulnerable widow, separated by choice from her family and culture. Tim Chester will show us
how God's hidden hand was at work in some very ordinary lives. And amazingly, God's great plan of
redemption was being worked out from "poverty to plenty." This study is four weeks. (This study will be co-led by Janice Rau and Ann-Elise Grosser)
Topic Two: Life's Healing Choices. We all have been hurt by other people, we hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. And, as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. But the question we all face is, Where do we go from here?
To find some answers to these questions, we'll be studying John Bakers' Life's Healing Choices. This study builds on the Beatitudes of Jesus, and incorporates additional Scriptures, practical tools and first person testimonies to help people find a pathway to wholeness, growth, and spiritual maturity. (This study will be led by Elaine Colbert).
