As a ministry, Titus Women is committed to leading women in three areas – training in God’s Word, learning what worship means, discovering the importance of prayer. So, we’ve designed a class to focus on those areas and put feet to our faith in living them out in the daily moments of life. 3 different teachers will lead us, here’s what they’re saying:
I’m a wife and mother and am teaching in the Titus class on Prayer. To be honest, prayer was a wrestling match for several years of my journey. I wrestled with God trying to explain to Him why He should give me what I wanted. The problem with that method is as obvious as looking at the previous sentence. It was always filled with ‘I’ and ‘me’.
Then, God gave me a great gift.
His Spirit began teaching me what His word said about prayer. He taught me about abiding with Him, and what faith was. He also put on my heart how important listening and obeying were, and how all of these things work together to make prayer life rich and rewarding.
The Prayer portion of this class will be talking about how to look upward, inward and outward in prayer in a way that is as unique to you as you are to Jesus!!!
My name is Sara Eyster. Bill and I have been members at LBC since 1993. We have been married 20 years this month and have a blended family of adult children who have blessed us with 5 grandchildren. We love spending time with all of them.
Bill and I enjoy teaching and mentoring couples and also consider time with the grandchildren our ministry. Additionally, I am greatly blessed to be a Titus Women teacher – blessed by the Word I study and the women who study along with me and encourage me.
This fall, my subject for 4 weeks of the “Titus” class is “Discipleship”. What a concept! To study in order to be more like Jesus. I am praying that we will do just that.
Discipleship can seem like a high and lofty goal and I always found it pretty easy to look like someone who lived by the rules, sang in the choir, taught Sunday School and had my wits together. It is a little more sobering to actually understand what true discipleship, being like Jesus, really means. And I have a ways to go yet but I find I can look back over a couple of years and see that I am being transformed. “Praise God!”
We will study it mostly in the context of your personal life among those you love the most – your family. They know you better than anyone else. You can’t pretend with them. It is where the rubber meets the road. And believe me, sometimes there is a lot of screeching and smoke. But take heart ladies, we have help – great powerful help.
This summer we were blessed with our 18th grandchild!
What does our life, our words, our behavior, our priorities point to as the object of our worship?
As we study Old and New Testament passages about worship, we will learn what it is to be equipped to move beyond dry rituals and superficial expressions to a lifestyle of authentic worship.
