Just as different threads are woven together to form a beautiful picture, Tapestry’s goal is to create something vibrant and colorful as we weave our lives together. Our first threads come in studying the Word and growing in the knowledge of God. The tapestry grows as we seek God’s heart through weekly Bible studies and special events.

Our threads are all different—praise God! We would love for you to join us, no matter where you are in your faith journey, as we weave our lives together in Him.

Dear Ladies,

This year we have no registration fee, but you’ll still have to register for a space.  Please know that most classes have an in-person size limitation, once it’s reached you will need to email Joyce to be placed on a waiting list ([email protected]).  Each description is followed by a link to the book.  You will need to purchase the book on your own this year.  You can purchase through Amazon or Lifeway in most cases however, there are two studies in which you will receive the books from you leader.  The cost is noted under those study descriptions. Please come to the first class with payment for your book in cash or check.  Make check out to Chelten.

This year looks different, we know it does, but we are loved by the same God, cared for by Him, and we look forward to studying His Word.  We believe the Lord has something special for you this year.  Join us as we seek Him together!

We look forward to seeing you! 

Study Schedule – Fall 2020

Jude by Jackie Hill Perry

Led by a team in the Worship Center
No class size limit

Study description:  While often overlooked, the Book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written.  God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.  In this study, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to pint others to Jesus in grace and truth.  We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.

Luke: The Good News (She Reads Truth)

Led by Amy Ransom
This study will be held at Chelten
Class Size Limit: 12

Study description: “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost.”

This is the message of the Gospel of Luke, a detailed account of the life and ministry of Jesus, from His birth in Bethlehem to His ascension into heaven. As we read through this study, pay close attention to Jesus seeking out the marginalized and engaging the religious leaders of the day. Watch Him minister in the power of the Holy Spirit, praying at key points in the narrative. Listen as He teaches parables about the kingdom of God, confounding the conceited and bringing hope to the humble. Experience afresh the wonder and joy of the in-breaking of God’s kingdom through Jesus, friend of sinners and Savior of the world. 

These books will be ordered and distributed by the leader.
Cost: $24  (Link to book for your reference)

A Praying Life by Paul Miller

Led by Teresa Castronouvo
Held at Chelten in the Fellowship Hall
Class Size Limit: 20

Study description:  Prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand itan illness, or saying grace at a mealmost of us simply do not pray. We prize accomplishments and productivity over time in prayer. Even Christians experience this prayerlessnessa kind of practical unbelief that leaves us marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy.

Prayer is all about relationship. When Jesus describes the intimacy He seeks with us, He talks about joining us for dinner (Revelation 3:20). A Praying Life feels like having dinner with good friends. It is the way we experience and connect to God. In A Praying Life, author Paul Miller lays out a pattern for living in relationship with God and includes helpful habits and approaches to prayer that enable us to return to a childlike faith.

Enough and Whole (Stonecroft Studies)

Led by Bev Rutledge and Melissa Miller
Held at Melissa Miller’s home in Dresher, PA 
Class Size Limit: 8

Study descriptions: 

Enough:  Places exist in our lives where we feel like we’re not enough. We don’t have enough time, money, or the kind of relationships want.?? What if God spoke into these places where we long for more? Enough explores how God wants to be present and help us embrace who we are rather than what we fear we’re missing. Discover the life that is good and enough.

Whole: Do you feel broken, trapped, or disconnected from others? Do you long for love and acceptance but don’t know how to find it? All of us have been hurt by circumstances and people in our lives. We instinctively look for something or someone to fix what’s broken. But that search can leave us feeling empty, discouraged, and alone. God wants to heal our brokenness and make us whole. He longs to give us joy, freedom, a sense of belonging, and unconditional love. Discover how those gifts can be yours – or show someone else how to receive them.

These books will be ordered and distributed by the leader.
Cost for both books:  $24

Melissa’s Address will be provided after you have registered.

Everyday Theology by Mary Wiley

Led by Joyce Brown and Nancy Carpenter
Held at Chelten in the Fellowship Hall
Class Size Limit: 20

Study description:  Theology is the study of God, what He has done, is doing, and will do in the world.  And it’s not just for those with formal education or those who work at church.  It’s for you in your everyday moments, questions, and decisions.  It’s for the big and the little, the exciting and mundane.  Our theology is the basis of our faith and touches every part of our existence.  In this study we will explore eight essential doctrines:  Scripture, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, humanity, salvation, the church and the end times.  Know God more deeply as you examine these foundational truths.

God Gives Us Victory!

Class Size Limit: 10

Study description: In this study we will walk through the Old Testament, studying the lives of Joshua, Rahab, Achan, Gideon, Samson, Ruth, Samuel, Saul, David and Jonathon.  We will see how God can give us victory over fear, unbelief, disobedience, discouragement, revenge, pride and anger—ultimately how He gives us victory over ourselves!

See Jesus by Paul Miller
Person of Jesus, Unit 1: Compassion

Led by Jackie Kulp
Held virtually via Zoom
No class size limit

Study description: ‘Our hold on the four stories of the person of Jesus (Gospels) has been weak.  We don’t have a good handle on who our Lord is: how he treats people, how he feels, how he reacts to people, how he times his interactions.  Paul Miller’s study sits at the feet of Jesus and looks at how he lives and speaks.’ –David Powlison

Imagine sitting at the feet of Jesus Himself or walking with Him as He touches the blind, heals the sick, brings peace out of chaos! Our study will inductively look at the life of Jesus and how He moves toward others with compassion. It is guaranteed to be life changing.  The class will also be recorded via zoom for those unable to personally attend.

If you wish to purchase the participants manual you can do so with the link below however, you are urged to simply come and participate.  Jackie will be giving out weekly homework to read, think and pray through.
