Summer Bible studies - Summer is almost here and many of our Bibles study groups are wrapping up their studies for the Summer. BUT . . . this Summer at St. Paul we have a way for you to continue to dig deep into God's Word! FIVE Summer Bible studies are beginning in June and all of these Bible studies will utilize RightNow Media (if you don't currently have access to RightNow Media please email RNM@splgrafton.org to request access).

Choose a study, watch the weekly videos, join the study Facebook group, and participate in the online discussions (occurring in the Facebook group). If you have any questions contact Kim Butz at kimberly.butz@splgrafton.org

Crazy Love - beginning June 9th (10 weeks) - led by Kim Butz
It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts-it's falling in love with God.

Engage - beginning June 16th    (6 weeks) - led by Deanna Gehrke
Raising children in a tech-obsessed social media world is tough. What limits do you put on it? Is it safe? Why can't kids just put their phones down?

Packed with expert interviews, a hands-on study and resource guide, downloadable tools, and biblical principles, it's the ultimate tool for not just surviving but thriving as a parent in today's culture and engaging your children on such a crucial topic.

 Spiritual Simplicity - beginning June 16th  (8 weeks) - led by Deanne Boyce
If You Crave Simplicity . . . and yearn for peace and calm, this group study is for you. Through Biblical teaching and practical insights, Chip Ingram goes beyond so-called quick fixes. This series speaks to men and women who know what they need to do, want desperately to do it, but find it next to impossible to break free of the "too many good and important things" that flood their lives.

The thesis is shockingly simple: spiritual simplicity can only occur when we do less and love more. The time-tested Biblical principles explored in this study fly in the face of long checklists designed to decrease stress and increase productivity. Instead, it will help you experience a shift from complex to simple, from hurried to peaceful, from "never enough time" to "time enough for those you love." Lasting change is within your reach! Take the steps today to learn how to run the race of life at a different, more meaningful speed by focusing on what matters most: LOVE.

Watch Your Mouth - beginning June 16th  (8 weeks) - led by Sarah Anderson
"Does it really matter what I say?"  Your greatest weapon-for good or evil-is in your mouth.  Watch Your Mouth, the video series, is based on bestselling author Dr. Tony Evans book by the same name. This compelling resource will help you learn to tame your tongue. With real-life stories and life-changing insights shared through engaging teaching, you'll learn what the Bible teaches about talking and: 
      * * Discover the power of the spoken word to bolster your faith when you're doubting.
      * * Discern what should or shouldn't be said so that you honor God with your speech.
      * * Develop the ability to praise God and voice wisdom even in tough circumstances.

The Book of Judges - beginning June 9th  (11 weeks) - led by Erin & Kate Schmidt
The book of Judges cracks a window into depths of the human soul. Watch a nation struggle with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise, who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver.

In this series, pastor and author J.D. Greear wades into the book of Judges to shine a light onto the muddy waters of human rebellion. The stories and truths within are not just archaic tales with no relevance for us today. Rather, J.D. works through each chapter unpacking the truth of God's grace in the midst of human wickedness, and shows how only the divine can redeem the fallen.

This group will NOT have an online group. Instead the group will meet on the LAST Sunday of the month June-August (June 30, July 28, and August 25) at 5pm at Erin & Kate's home. This is a WOMEN'S study group
