Seasonal Studies

Seasonal Studies

A seasonal study is one of several “Grow in a Group” options at Ingleside. These groups are best described as biblical studies focused on a specific topic occurring over a specific timeframe.  They are open to all participants—but most beneficial when attended each week from start-to-finish. Seasonal studies typically launch in January and August.

*Study materials are available for purchase at the Ingleside Bookstore.

DivorceCare is a 13-week study that offers a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.  We will focus on how to face the challenges that divorce and separation can bring, and help you move toward rebuilding your life. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about your experiences, learn helpful, practical information that will help you move forward, and you’ll become part of a family. It's more than a support group.  It’s a group with a focus on moving toward rebuilding your life. Join us as we connect to discover hope for the future. You can purchase all the needed materials in the Ingleside Bookstore.  We hope you’ll join us. This study is offered semi-annually, beginning in January and August.

This 13-week virtual study offers a support group to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Groups meet weekly to help you face challenges that you may have never faced before, and look towards hope for the future. We will focus on how to navigate through the loss of a family member or friend. You may feel like no one understands what you are going through. GriefShare is a wonderful, safe space to not only share your pain but to face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. You’ll discover people who can empathize with your pain, you’ll learn helpful practical information that will help you move forward, you’ll begin to find healing, and you’ll become part of a family. This study is offered semi-annually, beginning in January and August.

WOMEN: In this 10-session, verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1–18, Jen Wilkin shows us that Israel’s story is our story. The same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God.
Led by Katie Judah and Cassie Nalls

COED: Too often, when we are asked about Jesus, we say that we know about Him, but we do not truly know Him as we should. In this study, we are going to journey into knowing Christ better. The journey begins with understanding His eternal nature—and then we will look at the roles He serves here on earth and in heaven. It is a marvelous study—getting to know our Savior more intimately.

MEN: Sometimes circumstances in life make it difficult for men to be all God wants them to be. But in this 8-session study for men, Tony Evans urges men to stop looking at their circumstances as excuses and instead to see them as challenges and opportunities for success. Exploring the examples of men of God throughout the Bible, this study will challenge you to lay down your excuses, stop compromising, and fight to be a man of character and commitment. Despite your setbacks, failures, and pressures, you can still find purpose, meaning, and direction in life and become the man God has called you to be.

Thursday Mornings for WomeN

This study will dive into Paul's letters to the churches at Rome, Corinth, Galatia, Ephesus, Philippi, Colossae, and Thessalonica written over a span of fourteen years. These churches were in different stages of maturity and needed instruction. Paul was looked to for leadership as they moved through different phases of growth and challenge. Each letter contains both doctrine and practical explanation, and we will look deeply into both.

Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet, few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness, emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire. Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7 session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine.
