Bible Study

Life Groups for Women

Life Groups for Women revolve around studying the Bible as we do life together as women. Life Groups begin in September and January each year. We have daytime and evening groups throughout the week. We also have a few options during the summer months.

Summer 2022 Study

Our women’s summer Bible study will kick off Wednesday, June 22 with an opportunity to join a six-week AM, PM, or Zoom session. Childcare will be available with registration. Hear from the artist/author, Ruth Chou Simons in short video teachings to jump start our discussion about finding our acceptance and belonging in God’s grace alone. This is a valuable study for women in every walk of life who are weary of striving to be enough. You may click here for more information and registration beginning May 22nd. $20 cost includes study guide.
