Walking With Purpose


Returning in Fall 2021 for in person and virtual meetings! 

Come and see what this fresh and relevant Catholic Scripture-based program for women is all about!

In 2021-2022, we will be covering the Walking with Purpose books: Grounded in Hope, Fearless And Free and Living in the Father’s Love. These studies offer an opportunity to grow in faith and your knowledge of Scripture, all while connecting with other women from the parish.  No prior Bible study experience is necessary!  We welcome women of all ages and backgrounds!

Grounded In Hope is a seventeen-week study, Fearless And Free is an eleven-week study, and Living in the Father’s Love is a six-week study.

Grounded in Hope begins September 15th and ends February 9th.
In-person from 9:30am to 11:30am on Wednesdays.

Fearless And Free begins September 15th and ends December 1st.
Zoom from 7pm to 8:30pm on Wednesdays.

Living in the Father’s Love begins January 12th and ends February 16th.
Zoom from 7pm to 8:30pm on Wednesdays.

Each session will have breaks for holidays.  We will meet once a week to discuss the weekly lesson. Every 4-5 weeks a Connect Coffee is scheduled as part of the study. Connect Coffees feature an inspirational video by author Lisa Brenninkmeyer, fellowship, food, and drink.

We encourage enrollment before the beginning of each course season; however, you are welcome to join in at any time during the year.

Please see below for a brief description of the books we will be using this year.  For more detailed descriptions, or more information about the WWP ministry, please visit www.walkingwithpurpose.com, or feel free to contact us.

Grounded In Hope

In a world where levels of despair, addiction, and suicide are rising, we need more than clichés or positive thinking. Grounded in Hope, based on the book of Hebrews, will help you encounter Jesus in such a powerful, comforting, and stabilizing way that He can become your lifeline.

Hebrews contains some of the most beautiful passages you’ll find in Scripture. It will comfort you and challenge you. Every word of it has a treasure to mine, and those who are willing to make the effort will be richly rewarded.

Grounded in Hope, our 17-lesson Bible study, is ideal if you…

  • Long to know Jesus with greater intimacy
  • Are ready to grow in your trust in Him as your true source of hope
  • Have grown weary as you run your race, and need encouragement to persevere

Fearless And Free

Fearless and Free is an eleven-week Bible study based on the book of Ephesians that is ideal for Lent. So many of us are wrestling through the reality that life isn’t easy, even when we are doing the right thing. Suffering can slam into us from left field, leaving us reeling.

This study provides a firm foundation to stand on no matter what life throws our way. With an emphasis on healing and wholeness, Fearless and Free is the most personal and transformative study that Walking with Purpose has offered so far.

This is what we’ll discover through the pages of this study:

  • We need to WAKEN to the reality of who we are in Christ, and that we have an enemy who seeks to steal our identity
  • We need to WRESTLE with the battle in our minds—bringing our thoughts in captivity to Christ
  • We need to be strengthened as WARRIORS so that we can move forward in life—not just surviving but flourishing.


Living in the Father’s Love

In a world where women are measured by their beauty, achievements and possessions, wouldn’t it be nice to find a place where you could just be valued for who you are? Living in the Father’s Love will lead you to that safe place where you are unconditionally loved, baggage and all.

This brief but powerful six-lesson Bible study is the ideal way to revive and refresh yourself. Discover just how much God loves us and how the Gospels are deeply relevant to our relationship with God and with those we love.

Living in the Father’s Love is ideal if you are…:

  • Looking for a beginner-level Bible study
  • Looking for a study for Lent
  • Doubting whether God really loves you
  • Wondering how to improve your relationship with God and others
  • Searching for purpose
  • Only have time for a short study that has the power to transform your life
