Bible Studies for Women

Small Group Bible Studies for Women

Studying God's Word together is one of the great privileges we have access to.  Several opportunities exist during the week to join women in studying God's Word either in a general or topical study. For this semester, we meet on:

  • Tuesday Mornings from 10:00 to 11:45 am
  • Wednesday Evenings from 6:00 to 7:45 pm

Childcare will be provided for infant through Pre-K on Tuesday mornings - but we need you to pre-register for childcare! On Wednesday evenings, there will be childcare and activities for infant through middle school children - no preregistration required for Wednesdays.

Fall 2014 Courses

Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy
Led By: Dianna Hammitte (Tuesdays 9/2 – 11/18) & Jennifer Gaddis (Wednesdays 9/3—11/19) | Room 201/203 | Cost: $18

Daniel: Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy is part of the teaching library from Beth Moore. In this course, students will participate in a faith-building study of prophecy and learn how to live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials.

This Old Testament Bible study falls in two parts. The first portion, from Daniel chapters 1-6, deals with Daniel's life as he faced the kind of pressures and temptations Christians encounter today. Daniel models how to develop enduring integrity in an enticing world. The second portion, chapters 7-12, explores thrilling prophecies from the time of Daniel through the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Who is This Man Who Forgives Sins?
Precept  Upon Precept Study By Kay Arthur
Led By: Mary Smith | Tuesdays Only 9/2— 11/18 | Room 210/212 | Cost: $25

The Gospel of Luke walks through events in Jesus' life. Watch how the Son of Man, the Savior, enters the homes of the suffering, visits tax collectors, and dines with sinners. Learn from His words, His walk, and His relationships with common people what it really means "to follow Him." Hear what Jesus taught about the kingdom of God and how you, today, can be prepared for the difficult times ahead and to stand before the Son of Man.


Malachi: A Love that Never Lets Go
Led By: Beth Fannin | Tuesday Mornings 10/21— 12/9 & Wednesday Evenings 10/22— 12/10 | Room 205 | Cost: $15

Malachi: A Love That Never Lets Go – by Lisa Harper is a 7 session women's Bible study on the book of Malachi. Lisa Harper's first video Bible study with LifeWay focuses on God's mercy. On our worst day, God doesn't walk away from us. And His love for us is not determined by our performance. No matter how many times we mess up, God loves (and never leaves) broken people. "I the LORD do not change" Malachi 3:6 Women taking this Bible study will gain a fresh perspective on the Book of Malachi. It is more than a book in the Bible about tithing. Lisa brings the Scripture to life through dynamic storytelling.

Why Do You Believe That? A Faith Conversation
By Mary Jo Sharp
Led By: Allyson Suydam | Wednesday Evenings 10/22—12/10 | Room 207 | Cost: $15

This study will equip women to have meaningful spiritual conversations. How confident do you feel in talking about matters of faith? Do you wish you could express your beliefs with more effectiveness? Join Mary Jo to gain understanding and skill to share Jesus effectively with others, and you'll better understand your own faith. Answer your doubts, build your confidence, and start changing lives. Goals include:

  • Feel more confident in your faith and knowing what you believe
  • Feel comfortable representing Christ to someone who doesn't believe
  • Take the mystery and fear out of sharing your faith
  • Gain education, build a firm foundation, and be practically equipped
