Women at the Well

January 11, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

“Women at the Well” Bible Study Group

Women of all ages are welcome to gather with the “Women at the Well” for in-depth Bible study, discussion, fellowship, and snacks. Friendships and connections grow deeper when we share the Scriptures in study and prayer.

For our first study of 2018, we will read author Andy Stanley’s Follow. In this eight-session video-based Bible study, Andy Stanley will take us on a journey through the Gospels as he traces Jesus’ teaching on what it means to follow.

Beginning Thursday, January 11, the group will meet in the Craig Room from 10:30 a.m. to noon twice each month through April. If your schedule permits, please grab lunch with us afterward.

Participants are encouraged to obtain their copies of the book before our first meeting. Please join us as together we seek to quench the thirsting of our souls! If you need more information, please contact Lauren Sharps through the church office.

More About Andy Stanley’s Follow

Lots of people think Christianity is all about doing what Jesus says. But what if doing what Jesus says isn’t what Jesus says to do at all? Jesus’ invitation is an invitation to relationship, and it begins with a simple request: follow me.

Religion says “Change and you can join us.” Jesus says, “Join us and you will change.” There’s a huge difference. Jesus doesn’t expect people to be perfect. He just wants them to follow him. Being a sinner doesn’t disqualify anyone. Being an unbeliever doesn’t disqualify anyone. In fact, following almost always begins with a sinner and unbeliever taking one small step.

About the Author

Communicator, author, and pastor Andy Stanley founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries in 1995. Today, NPM consists of six churches in the Atlanta area and a network of more than 50 churches around the globe that collectively serve nearly 90,000 people weekly. A survey of U.S. pastors in Outreach Magazine identified Andy Stanley as one of the top ten most influential living pastors in America.

Andy holds an undergraduate degree in journalism from Georgia State University and a master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the author of more than twenty books, including The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating; Ask It; How to Be Rich; Deep & Wide; Enemies of the Heart; When Work & Family Collide; Visioneering; and Next Generation Leader.

In the digital world, his success reaches well beyond the local Atlanta area. Over 1.8 million of Andy’s messages, leadership videos, and podcasts are accessed from North Point’s website monthly.

In 2012, Your Move with Andy Stanley premiered on NBC after Saturday Night Live, giving him an even wider audience with which to share his culturally relevant, practical insights for life and leadership. Currently, over six million episodes are consumed each month through television and podcasts, underscoring Stanley’s impact not only as a communicator but also as an influencer of culture.

Nothing is as personal as his passion for engaging with live audiences, which he has pursued for over two decades at leadership events around the world. In high demand, he speaks at various annual events before audiences of both church and organizational leaders, including conferences such as Catalyst, Leadercast, and the WCA Global Leadership Summit.

“I cannot fill their cups,” he often says of the opportunity to impact leaders in business and in ministry, “but I have a responsibility to empty mine.”

Andy and his wife, Sandra, have three grown children and live near Atlanta.
