Women's Bible Study

My soul clings to the dust;

give me life according to

your word!

Psalm 119:25

 

Fall 2020 Study

 

 

 

The LORD,

He Is God!

A Study of Elijah's Ministry in 1-2 Kings

A prosperous nation in spiritual decline.  An unscrupulous leader, an authoritarian ideology, and an unsavory foreign influence.  A generation that has abandoned the God of their fathers and embraced a cult of nature and sex.  One prophet of the true God speaking truth to power.  A battle for the soul of a nation.  

Does this sound familiar, maybe like what is going on in our nation today?  

Take heart!  This isn't the first time God's people have been in this kind of situation.  Our God is the same God who performed wonders in the days of Elijah to call the nation of Israel back to Himself.  He is the same God who miraculously fed Elijah in the wilderness and who sent fire and rain in answer to his prayers.

 

Please join us as we study the ministry of Elijah in 1-2 Kings.  His God IS God.  He is OUR God and He is still in the business of answering the prayers of His people.    

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.

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.

Health precautions for 2020

We are meeting in larger rooms with extra space to allow for social distancing.  If you are not feeling well, please stay home.  We ask everyone who joins us to use common sense courtesy:  cover your mouth if you have to sneeze or cough, and wash hands thoroughly; in addition, please wipe down restroom after use with disinfectant that is provided.  We encourage those with health concerns that place them in a higher risk category to take whatever precautions they feel are wise, to wear a mask and be part of our extra careful small group, or to stay home and join us by live-stream on Tuesday mornings.
