Our Current Study

January 7 - April 28, 2020

Our last Bible Study took us into dark places of the Old Testament. 

 

In it we saw the uncensored reality of our miserable, degraded, desperate condition as broken women in a fallen world.  If the Bible is an epic drama of God’s redemption, the voices of these biblical women form a tragic chorus in the drama of human history.  They cry out for a Savior who will not only enlighten us and right the wrongs of an unfair and oppressive society, but also for a man who will understand and meet the deepest needs of our broken hearts. 

In this study we will meet that Man. 

 

We will hear the Divine Voice that answers the tragic chorus of women throughout the ages with understanding, redemption and healing, with a love worth life itself and a hope that is greater than death.  Each week we will study the beauty of Jesus through the eyes of a different woman with whom He interacts in the New Testament. 

 

Come study with us The Man who is worthy of absolute faith, the most extravagant love, and the utmost devotion of which a human being is capable.  Come study The Rabbi Who Talked to Women. 

Our Women  

This is a safe, welcoming group of women. You will experience serious, in-depth teaching, intimate small group fellowship and personal prayer. Many women from outside the church are faithful members of our Bible Study.  Come and make new friends who will support and encourage you in the faith.

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF MINISTRY

 

We believe that women need Jesus. Our lives are not about our social or financial status, our clothes, our appearance, our jobs, our homes, our righteousness or our perfection. Only Jesus saves. Only Jesus satisfies. Our purpose is to nurture women in their relationship with Jesus.

We believe that women need the Word of God. We need truth, encouragement, hope and support as we face the many challenges of life as singles, wives, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, neighbors, employers, employees, and friends. The Word of God is relevant in every stage and circumstance of our lives. It equips us to live our lives well and to minister the grace of God in a broken world. Our purpose is to study the Scripture and apply its truth and power to our lives.

 

We believe that women need other women. We need sisters and friends to walk with us in life. We need to share our struggles, our sorrows and our joys. We need the wisdom and counsel of older women who have been there. We need the support of Christian friends whose faith is real, who will listen, encourage, and pray for us. We need to belong, and we believe that each woman has something to contribute to our group. Our purpose is to nurture friendships among Christian women.

We believe that women need the church and the church needs women. As we minister to women and build them up in faith and friendship, we are strengthening not only individuals but also their families and the church. Our purpose is to equip and inspire women to live and minister well in their homes, in the church, and in the world.
