Are you ready for another Summer Bible Study? The 2013 summer bible study will officially begin on June 11, 2013 and we are reading Gideon: Your Weakness, God’s Strength by Priscilla Shirer. This is a 7 week Bible study about God and His people. His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness—even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us—our lives, our doubts, our struggles, and our possibilities as believers. From a state of fear, weakness, and insecurity, Gideon emerged as Israel’s hero, filled with God’s presence and His passion for deliverance. This study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. In what ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, see them as the gifts that they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.

If you have never participated in online study at the Womens Bible Cafe, it’s pretty simple. You’ll read the workbook at home, then visit the Womens Bible Cafe to participate in online group discussions. We have small group meetings everyday of the week, morning and evening, via a private Facebook group. Choose ONE small group that best fits your schedule…and if you miss a session then you are welcome to attend another one during the week so you do not fall behind. We will post the summer small group schedule during the first week of study- June 11.
Participate by yourself or with a friend. Either way, you won’t be alone! We have many women from around the world and your participation in the group discussions makes the study enjoyable for all! We typically have 700 to 900 women participating in each online Bible study and we’ve been leading online Bible studies for women since 2009. We are a volunteer ministry with 11 ministry leaders and 10 coleaders from around the world.
We strongly recommend you get the book early…as Beth Moore is also leading this for the summer bible study. It’s so much fun…you don’t want to miss out because you ordered your book too late! Learn more about the 2013 Siesta Summer Bible Study when you –click here to visit Beth Moore’s blog.
