Women's Bible Study

Women's Bible Study

Our Women's Bible studies are offered in the fall and the spring.  A variety of Bible studies are available for you to choose.  Each study allows you to study the Bible in-depth personally and in community with other women.  Day and evening classes give women of all ages the opportunity to contemplate challenging life questions, go deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ and connect with other women in meaningful conversations about things that matter.

Discerning the Voice of God
By Priscilla Schirer (Sept 12-Oct 24)
Led by: Lisa Waite
Cost: $15
Through seven sessions, discover the root to clear and daily communication with God - humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.

BRAVE -- Honest Questions Women Ask
By Angela Thomas–Pharr (Sept 12-Oct 24)
Led by Denza Williams & Barbara Daughety
Cost: $15 
This Bible study for women looks at the heart of what women are thinking and feeling. Angela speaks to participants about deep feelings that all women have at one time or another. She looks boldly at some of the fears and struggles of being a woman, and she helps us see how we can be brave in the face of those challenges. We’ve all got insecurities, flaws, and struggles that we’re afraid to address. But if we can be brave enough to raise the questions, God will answer us. You’ve got questions. God has answers. Be brave.
 
Breathe
By Priscilla Shirer (Sept 12-Oct 10)
Led by Dr. Melissa Ewing
Cost: $15
One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Job: An Unlikely Story of Joy
By Lisa Harper (Oct 24-Dec 12)
Led by Dr. Melissa Ewing
Cost: $15
Joy is the constant companion of the woman who trusts in the Lord. And while you can find it in friends, family, and circumstances, unfailing, persistent joy will only ever overflow from your relationship with Jesus. Just ask Job, the man from Uz who clung to God’s goodness while all his worldly joys were stripped away. But how is it possible to hold onto such joy in times of sorrow? In this 7-session study, discover the redemptive side to Job’s story of suffering. Learn to use pain to strengthen your faith, point others to the gospel, and remember God’s providence will never take you to a place where His grace will not sustain you.
 
The Word of the Lord – Seeing Jesus in the Prophets
By Nancy Guthrie (Sept 12-Nov 14)
Led by Gina Hammack
Cost: $15
In the Old Testament, God spoke to his people through prophets—men specifically called to speak God’s Word to His people. The New Testament makes it clear that these prophets testified to Israel’s final redemption and ultimate hope: Jesus the Messiah. Gain a fresh perspective on the message of the Old Testament prophets, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more when you join Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament! The women of Yarns of Hope also knit and crochet during their class, making blankets for babies and hats for cancer patients.

You are Loved
By Sally Clarkson, Angela Perritt & Mary Graham (Sept 12- Nov 14)
Led by Melissa Castaneda and Charla Milligan
Cost: $10
Dare to believe you are loved with an everlasting love . . . and loved completely, for who you are. When you feel deeply loved and cherished, your whole outlook on life is infused with energy every day. Yet all too often, many of us seek acceptance and personal validation in all the wrong places or with the wrong people. It’s time for a life-changing discovery that you can experience full, forever love from the One who knows you best. iMoms is a group designed for moms of all ages.

Women of the Word
By Jen Wilkin
Led by Courtney Willis
Cost: $10
We all know it's important to study God's Word. Sometimes it's hard to know where to start. A lack of time, emotionally driven approaches, and past frustrations can erode our resolve to keep growing in our knowledge of Scripture. How can we, as Christian women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? This study offers a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture. This book will equip you to engage God's Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart.
 
Ephesians – Discovering your identity and purpose in Christ
By Sue Edwards
Led by Kelley Mathews
Cost: $15
In Ephesians, readers follow Paul's guidance for the church in Ephesus. God led Paul to found a church in the midst of a city seized by debauchery and the occult, yet the fledgling Ephesian Christians were able to overcome differences among their members and persistent temptation from the world around them through their faith in Christ. This Bible study uses the example of Paul's church in Ephesus to show readers how they can be victorious Christians, seated in God and free from sin.
