Bible Studies

Study the Word with other women who want to go deeper in their faith! Women's Bible Studies are held Wednesday mornings and evenings. Our Fall Schedule begins on September 20th. No Class on Sep. 27th due to a funeral.

Classes are held on Wednesday mornings from 9-11am. Our fall schedule begins on Sep 20th and will offer three classes. All classes gather in LC210/212 at 9am for worship and announcements before breaking into smaller groups.


Understanding the book of Revelation, written in apocalyptic literature style, history is seen as a cosmic battleground in which the forces of good and evil contend for final control of the earth and its inhabitants.  Satan and his hosts seem to gain the upper hand.  However, Victory belongs to God and His hosts, as the forces of evil, which have been overcome by Christ on the cross, are ultimately destroyed.  The real purpose of the book of Revelation is to give comfort to Christians at all times.  When God’s people fear that the world is raging out of control, they see here that God is always in control of history. Come join us as we hear the “The Triumphant Christ“  speak to His church through all the chapters of Revelation to the final chapter of “Our Victorious Lord Reigns Forever”.   LifeLight: Revelation Study Guide is $10.   Room 210/212, Led by Kathie Stocker 

Teachings John’s Gospel & Epistles

In John, the importance of Jesus’ identity is not merely theoretical; it has drastic, real-life consequences. Jesus of Nazareth was a historical figure who was born, died, and rose again. He is also the eternal Son who created us, saved us, and gave us the right to become God’s children. When we get Jesus’ identity wrong, we miss out on the salvation He offers. If we get it right, though, everything else in our lives becomes rightly ordered.

And the apostle John’s letters to the Christians of the ancient world tackles issues of false teaching, sin, and atoning work in Jesus Christ. The epistles of John proclaims the good news of the Lord to which John testified. He reminds us that as we face the temptations of false teaching in our day, we need to be ready to test everything against the Scriptures and to examine ourselves.     Bible:  1, 2, 3  John.  No cost. Room 214, Led by Mary Fricke

A Study in 1 and 2 Samuel

What does the history of Israel’s kings have to do with the Christian life today? You might be surprised! The Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Samuel trace the development of Israel’s monarchy from its establishment under the prophet Samuel through the reigns of the nation’s first kings, Saul and David.  In this study, using three leading teachers, guiding us:  Study book by Kay Gabrysch (22-year WBS leader) , Video with Michael DeFazio (New Testament & Hermeneutics Professor at Ozark Christian College) and we will hear also from Alistair Begg who walks us through books of 1 and 2 Samuel.  The guide 1 & 2 Samuel, Rise of the Lord’s Anointed is $5.  Room 216, Led by Beth Hranicky
