Women's Bible Study

Because the pursuit and application of Scripture is the crux of our women’s ministry, we offer a strong Bible study program, with groups meeting during the school year on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday Evenings. We are also excited to offer a study for women who do not speak English as their first language on Tuesday mornings. Women of all ages are welcome and may join a study group at anytime during the study season (September-May). 

Studies in the Fall: Leviticus

Studies in the Spring: Colossians & Philemon

Studies for English Learners

Tuesday mornings, 9:15–11 AM (nursery care and Bible activities available for children up to age 5 open at 9 am) OR Wednesday evenings, 6:30–7:30 PM (nursery care, Clubs and programs for children/youth of all ages.) Please indicate your child care needs on your Bible Study registration. (This does not satisfy Wednesday night Children's Club registration—parents with children participating in Wednesday night Clubs must register their children separately using the Club brochures).

Tuesday Bible Study season is September 10, 2019 - May 5, 2020

Wednesday Bible Study season is September 11, 2019 - May 6, 2020

Take advantage of this excellent opportunity to nurture your spiritual growth, to encourage other believers, and to build genuine fellowship around the Word. If you have any questions, contact Vicki Becker, Women's Bible Study Coordinator, (717.336.6337).
