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.

Fall classes are held on Wednesday mornings from 9-11am beginning September 21st. Both classes gather at 9am in LC210/212 for opening prayer and worship before moving to individual classrooms. 

LifeLight - Wilderness Wanderings by R. Reed Lessing. This class will be led by Kathie Stocker in room LC 210/212 thru Dec 14th.

Wilderness Wanderings examines the OT books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, following the Israelites as they ask, “How Did We Get Here?” Topics to be studied include Making Offerings, Priestly Ministry, Clean and Unclean, Atonement, Holiness, Festivals, By the “Numbers” and finally, Planning to Settle. Join us in the Adventure!

Psalm 23: The Shepherd With Me by Jennifer Rothschild. This class will be led by Renee Page in room LC214/216 thru Nov 2nd. (Another class will begin in November-TBD)

Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven’t experienced its power in their lives. This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life. In this 7-session study gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23. Explore the depths of God’s compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth. Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.

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

The Wednesday evening Bible Study is from 6:30-8pm via ZOOM. Classes begin Sep. 14th and run through the end of the year.

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 2nd 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.

Walkin' Faith Group will be an active Bible study which includes listening to a study on headphones while walking or running the path at Clear Lake Park. The group, led by Renee Page, will then gather together in lawn chairs to discuss the study. Ladies will need comfortable shoes, headphones, phone, and a lawn chair. Our study is The Flourishing Life by Stephanie Beaulieu.

Clear Lake Park is located at 5001 Nasa Pkwy, Seabrook, TX 77586. The park is well lit and has both water and restrooms. Ladies are welcome to walk as a group or as individuals depending on desired pace. The park has several paved sidewalk options  and the park is a large loop so women walking by themselves will still be part of the group. 

The study is free and open to all women. The Fall Session will be held on Sunday evenings from 5:15-7pm beginning October 2nd.  We will meet for five weeks (every Sunday in October). Click HERE to sign up and receive 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 our Protector. We ask for Your Heavenly protection over our children as they begin another school year. Lord, place Your Hand on every school, whether public, private, or in the home, and guide each teacher and student in Your ways and Your truth. The enemy is hard at work trying to deceive and destroy our children, but You, Lord, are stronger than the enemy. Lead them and guide them for Your Name's sake. In the name of Jesus. Amen
