Inspire Gathering Sessions
Inspire Gatherings is creative bible study designed to bring women in to a deeper relationship with God through the healing of lies they have believed for various reasons and past hurts and align their identities with the truth of the gospel and who God is in order to live in the freedom of Christ.
We can meet once for an event or bring the entire program of six sessions. We gather once a month for six consecutive months, building relationships and bringing healing. Six sessions are broken down in to three sections with corresponding crafts.
Foundation // Session 1
Focusing on the importance of being rooted and grounded in prayer through learning the truths of scripture, we walk through the truth of God's word over the lies we have believed. This is the start of the healing process and being reconciled to God.
Identity // Sessions 2 - 4 :
Our identity is founded in Christ and based on who scripture says we are. These sessions focus on getting to know what God says about us and who God is.
The Call // Sessions 5 + 6
When we have our foundation based on the truths of scripture, know who God is and who we are in Christ, we are able to live in freedom. Walking in freedom, we are able to do the things God created us specifically for, which these last two sessions focus on.
Session 1 // Prayer & Paint Create It : Canvas Painting
When you are getting to know someone, you have to spend time with them to start a relationship and speak to them. The same is true about God. Leaning in to hearing God and prayer, we paint through the healing prayer.
Session 2 // You are Loved Create It : His banner Over Me is Love
When our foundation is in Christ, love flows, even it starts at just a small crack, it is constantly breaking through the lies and muck in our lives to bring us the truth: YOU ARE LOVED. Studying this truth, we create banners proclaiming it.
Session 3 // You are Chosen Create It : Treasure Boxes
There is a holy response to being chosen. We are called in to compassion, kindness humility to proclaim the goodness of God, that others may follow Jesus, as well. A wooden box is painted and filled with our identity of who we are in Christ.
Session 4 // You are Beautiful Create It : Find the Joy Notebook
Everyone has different styles and considers beauty in different regards, as the saying goes; beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We ask: Who is the beholder in your life? Who do you want to be beautiful for? as we put #findthejoynotebooks together that are to be filled with the beauty God has put in us and around us in our daily lives.
Session 5 // Your smile is Contagious Create It : Note Cards
God spoke the whole world in to motion and then wrote it down for us. Words are powerful: they hold gifts of encouragement and wisdom and thanksgiving. They bring out smiles and tears and comfort. Living in freedom, we encourage participants to create note cards and use their words to breathe life in to others.
Session 6 // Freedom to Fly Create It : Necklace
Diving in to a small study on putting off our old self and butterflies, we reflect on what God has done in our life and the metamorphosis that he has brought us through, as we usher in freedom. Praying about what God has started birthing in each participant, one of a kind freedom necklaces are created.
