DISCIPLESHIP

Women’s Bible Study
We offer Fall (September - November) and Spring (February - April) Bible study classes. You have two options to choose from: Tuesday mornings at 9:30 and Wednesday evenings at 6:00. Childcare is available upon request for ages birth through 5 years on Tuesdays. Activities for preschool, children and youth are offered on Wednesday evenings during class time.

Five Reasons to Join a Women's Bible Study
1. Accountability
We believe that giving you a time and place as well as walking through a particular set of Scriptures together with a small group helps hold women accountable to daily, meaningful time in the Word.

2. Connection
When women are centered on God's Word, friendships form and God knits our hearts together in a way that otherwise wouldn't happen. There is also greater freedom to share aspects of life that are unique to women.

3. Community
By growing in our own knowledge, we will be prepared to teach and mentor others. Regularly gathering together with other women opens our eyes to those in need and opportunities to serve.

4. Encouragement
Learning how other women are applying the Scriptures to their lives or how they are keeping the faith through difficult times can be a huge encouragement to our own personal faith.

5. Strengthening of the Local Church
When women are consistently in the Word, connecting with other women, sharing and serving in the community, and are being encouraged in their faith, a beautiful thing happens... the local church is strengthened.

 

As women come together around God's Word, the fabric of the local church is strengthened. God's Word penetrates hearts and lives. More and more women learn to speak and teach the Word. Truths discovered together begin to spread throughout the church body. Women begin to challenge each other and hold one another accountable, growing together as sisters in Christ. They learn what it means to be godly friends and wives and mothers and employers and employees. They live out Titus 2:3-5. Families become stronger. Deep friendships are developed in the context of ministry. Women grow eater to invest in the life of the church and further the work of the gospel. As women dive deeply into god's Word together, the riches they discover strengthen the local church.

Biblical Theology Workshop

 

Do you ever read the Bible and have a sense that there is a deeper meaning or significance that you can't quite figure out? Or do you sometimes wonder why others are able to draw something out of a passage of Scripture that you didn't see until they pointed it out? If so, we hope you'll make plans to come to a Biblical Theology Workshop for Women.

Our aim will be to increase our Bible skills so that rather than being bored or intimidated by our Bibles, we'll become more intrigued by them. We want to grow in confidence that we're grasping what the Bible communicates to us and grow in love for the Savior it reveals.

Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie will lead participants in reviewing the key events of the Bible's story and the major sections of the Bible. Nancy will demonstrate telling the story of the Bible through the lens of one of its important themes, and participants will work together on tracing a few themes through the various sections of the Bible. Then we'll look at the opening of each of the Gospels and discover how a growing understanding of major biblical themes adds to our understanding when we see those themes arise in smaller parts of the Bible. The three sessions will be energetic, interactive, and fun.

This workshop is for those who are new to the Bible as well as those who have been studying it for a lifetime–and everyone in between.

You may purchase tickets through our church office, cost is $22.50 each. Click here to learn more.
