Bible Studies

Get Connected. Go Deeper.

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.

Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. This seven-session study unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you'll find that these habits of faith can actually create more margin in your life-providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.

Leader:  Jennifer Smith/Lana Hamilton

Cost:  You will need to purchase your own book 
Every book of the Bible tells us what is true about God. In this study of Exodus 19-40, journey through the story of how God shepherds His newly-liberated children into an understanding of what their freedom means: lives consecrated for service to God and to one another. Learn the deeper theological implications of stories you may have known for years. Understand how the freedom God gives His children is meant to lead us to lives of service to God and our communities of faith. Explore how we understand the character of Christ, even through Old Testament accounts.

Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn't it? This six-session video Bible study will help you: from being pulled into the anxiety of disappointment by discovering how to better process unmet expectations and other painful situations, train yourself to recognize the three strategies of the enemy so you can stand strong and persevere through unsettling relationships and uncertain outcomes, discover the secret of being steadfast and not panicking when God actually does give you more than you can handle, shift your suspicion that God is cruel or unfair to the biblical assurance that God is protecting and preparing you and know how to encourage friends and help them navigate hard realities with real help from God's truth.

Maybe your head knows that God is always good, but your heart is not so sure. Or perhaps in reading Scripture, you've wondered if God went through a personality change - strictly enforcing the rules in the Old Testament to loving the outcast in the New. This seven-session Bible study explains how our Creator Redeemer's unconditional love is woven throughout Scripture - even in the often overlooked and misunderstood passages. So dive in and discover at a deeper level that you are - and have always been - the object of His affection!

Elijah

By: Priscilla Shirer (7 weeks)
Jan 13 - Feb 24
Leader:  Stephanie Robinson 

Elijah emerged as the voice of unapologetic truth during a time of national crisis and moral decline. His ministry was marked by tenacious faith and holy fire - the same kind you will need in order to remain steadfast in current culture. Join Priscilla Shirer in this seven-session study for a fresh look at Elijah and the difficult choices of obedience that kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven's fire to fall.  Purchase own book from Amazon (Amazon link is in registration form)
