Girls With Swords - High School Girl's Bible Study

June 4th, 2017


An 8 Week Study By Author: Lisa Bevere

How to Carry Your Cross Like a Hero

Worldwide, women are the targets of prejudice, sex trafficking, abuse, and gendercide. A spiritual enemy is seeking to disarm women on every level. Lisa Bevere explains how the Word of God is a sword that should be both studied and wielded. If there ever was a time for women to be armed, it’s now.

Creatively forging the imagery of swords, the Word of God, and the Cross, Girls with Swords will teach you:

How to speak the language of heaven on earth What it means to intercede What it means to carry your cross What it means to be discerning How to disarm the enemy Why women are the enemy’s target— and why God needs them to be heroes

Hosted by Kristi Carrigan and Charity Harris. Location: Park West Church (Room TBA)

Sundays at 6:30PM Beginning June 4

Next steps square

Next Steps Class for New Believers - Larry Winters

August 9th - August 30th, 2017

Receiving Jesus is the most important decision a person can ever make; it’s the beginning of a lifetime following Christ. If you’ve recently prayed to receive Jesus, we have some focused next steps for you. These steps will offer you informational directions, and you'll also have the opportunity to build relationships with other new believers.

Water Baptism

Water baptism is an opportunity for you to publicly share your decision to follow Jesus. Now that you've accepted Him, we'd love to celebrate with you at our next baptism event!

Freedom Basics

We know you might have a lot of questions, but you don't have to search for answers alone. That's where Freedom Basics comes in! This four-part class is designed to provide relevant answers to your questions about your new life in Christ.

We'll cover many questions and topics such as:

• What does it mean to be a Christian?

• How can I live free from my past?

• What do I do now?

In addition, you'll hear about many of Park West ministries and about how you can continue to grow.


Whether you are looking for a place to meet new friends, connect to a mentor, grow spiritually, or serve your community, there's a PWC Small Group for you!
