In this 7-week study we will study about strengthening our faith through discipline.
Kelly Minter helps us to see how spiritual disciplines help us to have a stronger encounter with God. When we are disciplined, things like study and worship become a habit instead of something that you have on your to do list. We will be studying the following practices:
- Practicing prayer
- So much more
- Tuesday nights, 6:45 to 8:30 pm starting February 28, via Zoom*
- Thursday mornings, 9:00 to 10:30 am starting February 23 at St. Paul's Parish Hall, 1635 W. Chester Ave., Tracy. Members will practice social distancing and have the option for a hybrid meeting via Zoom*
This will be a 6-week study. *The Zoom meeting link will be emailed to group attendees.
See the tips on this downloadable tutorial document if you have not "Zoomed" before. It is really pretty simple, and if you haven't been on Zoom before the application loads onto your device when entering for the first time. You'll get the link to the meeting and if the meeting code and passcode are needed, the leadership will provide them via email or text. Then it's as easy as muting or unmuting to share plus staying muted if you're not talking to minimize distractions for others. The same goes for the video button. If you're going to leave the camera or doing anything that would be distracting, you can turn your video off. These controls are at the lower left of your window.
For information contact leaders:
- Tuesday Lisa Sanchez, Roxana Cuevas, Deborah Littleton and Mandy Bonthu.
- Thursday, Becki Brown, Janette Kosloski, Teresa Mondragon, and Lou Ann Saenz

This study book is free this time around, as a blessing from SMI due to a grant we have received. If we run out, you can order it from either Lifeway, Christian Book, or Amazon.
All women will:
- COME and be connected
- TASTE and grow to know the Lord more
- SEE and experience that God is active in your life today!
Our nondenominational Christian study and fellowship offers biblical foundations for building a stronger relationship with God, forming relationships with one another and lifting one another up with prayer and accountability support. His Scoop Study (HSS Bible Study) has served 210 women since starting in 2012.
The AM group normally meets at St. Paul's Parish Hall and the PM group normally meets at St. Paul's or another partnering church. During the COVID-19 precautionary measures, the PM will be meeting via Zoom, and the morning do a hybrid study with some ladies gathering in person, socially distanced, as well as on Zoom. Studies typically run from 6 to 13 weeks. Our yearly summer break is from May-August. See our statement of beliefs for more information.
Testimonials from former HSS attendees:
"HSS studies always impact me and impact my walk with God. I can always count on our studies to bring me to 'the next level' (and believe me there is no end to our next level!). Each study still brings me to a deeper awareness of just how much God loves me and desires to spend time with me."--Teresa M., 2020 HSS attendee
"Priscilla Shirer’s, Discerning the Voice of God, has taught me how important it is for me to listen to God speaking to me through the Holy Spirit. As I make my way through extended grief, trying to figure out steps to take for my ultimate next move in my life, I realize that God is guiding me in every step, if I only pay attention and listen to his voice. This is giving me much peace in my decisions and choices that are coming next. If it doesn’t feel right, then it isn’t coming from God."--MaryAnne B., 2020 HSS attendee
"I started HSS to keep me accountable for a promise I made to myself to stay in God’s word daily. Turns out to be sooo much more! He is speaking directly to my heart with each study I do. I am learning daily about our Incredible Savior, how much He loves me and how worthy I am. I love the leaders and
feel a great bond with these beautiful women God has placed to help guide me in the right direction! God is good!"--Ana, 2020 HSS attendee
“Ladies! You don’t know what this study has meant to me! It’s saved my marriage! This is really the first [HSS] I’ve attended, and the facilitators are just so good! Ladies need to be in this study! This was life changing for me, being able to come together to learn about the Lord.”--Lisa, 2018 HSS attendee
“As I continue my walk to get closer to God, I realize just how much I don't know. Every time I do a study, I learn so much and realize why something is, or isn't happening in my life. I realize the importance of staying close to His word and I'm constantly amazed at each revelation of what God wants for me. Staying connected with other women who study His word has drawn me closer to the Lord and all His glory!”--Mary Anne, 2017 HSS attendee
"I so appreciate each and every person, for this study has been an amazing time of learning & growth for me. It was an answer to prayer is what it was! Our leaders were amazing as all of the ladies that came. I will hold you all dear in my heart. Thank you for allowing me to come to the group. Never stop inviting new ladies to join the group for I will be forever grateful for my invite. It was life changing at a time when I had no hope. I found the strength and faith to continue."--Brenda, 2016 HSS attendee
