We encourage you to take the time to work through this personal study guide before we gather together for women's meeting. These questions and study tips will help you to look into the Scriptures and study Colossians 1:15-23 on your own before we discuss together and are taught from this text on Tuesday.
Women's meeting will be held Tuesday December 18th at 7pm
Childcare available upon request. Please message Providence on social media or contact Lauren Schreiber if you will be needing childcare.

List all of the descriptive terms used to describe the person of Christ.
In light of verse 21, what are the characteristics of mankind before Christ verses after faith in Christ?
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
