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 new Walkin' Faith Bible study will be a 5-week class on Sunday evenings.

Classes are held on Wednesday mornings from 9-11am. Both classes gather at 9am in LC210/212 for opening prayer and worship before moving to individual classrooms. The Fall Classes are winding down before the Holiday Break and will resume in January. The classes listed below are for the new schedule beginning on January 4th.

LifeLight - Parables.  This class will be led by Kathie Stocker in room LC 210/212  beginning Jan 4th, 2023.

 We will look at:  Why Parables? - Matthew 13:34-35.  2: Something Old, Something New - Matthew 9:15-17.  3: A Most Radical Grace - John 10:11.  4: Lost and Found - Luke 15:7.  5: Keeping Faith - John 15:5.  6: Living Mercy - Luke 10:36-37.   7: The Coming Judgment - Matthew 21:21-32.  8: Looking for Judgment Day - Matthew 25:21.  9: Watching for Eternity - Matthew 24:45-47. 

Habakkuk - Remembering God's Faithfulness. This class will be led by Beth Hranicky in room LC214/216 beginning Jan 4th, 2023.

Does God ever seem silent when you need Him most? Habakkuk was a prophet who looked around at the broken world he lived in and wondered, Where is God? He felt forgotten and didn’t remember God was in control. How is it, then, that he is now a shining example of how the righteous live by faith? Through Habakkuk’s story, learn how the storms of life can become opportunities to activate your faith.

No registration required - just come and see what we have to offer! Contact Beth Hranicky for questions or more information.

The Wednesday evening Bible Study is from 6:30-8pm via ZOOM. The Spring session takes place from January - May.

The Bible Recap by Tara-Leigh Cobble. This evening class will be led by Dixie Russo via ZOOM. 

The Entire Bible over two years as taught by Tara-Leigh Cobble from "The Bible Recap Podcast". This is our 3rd in 4 groupings however previous attendance is not required. All are welcome! This author will help us break the bible down into daily studies and see God's story of love and the desire to have an everlasting relationship with us.

Many feel overwhelmed tackling the entire bible but this study really helps you break it down into small parts, dig into each portion and come out with a much stronger understanding. I hope you can join us in person or on zoom. I would love to share this experience with you!

New members are always welcome. To join the class contact Dixie for the ZOOM link and more information.

Can't meet on Sundays or Wednesdays? Contact us for information on small groups or other ways to meet with like-minded Christians. Request more information.

Weekly Prayer

We invite women to join hearts and minds together in prayer for our church, schools, nation, leaders and many more needs! Whether we pray alone silently or out loud with a group we will be united in Spirit! 

Heavenly Father, You are the only answer to the problems we face. Per 2 Chronicles 7:14 help us, as Your children, humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways. We pray You hear our cries from heaven and that You forgive our sins and heal our land.  In the name of Jesus. Amen
