To Know Christ and to Make Him Known



Women’s Bible Study

Our weekly Bible Study will resume on January 5th, 2017, with a slight schedule change. We shall be starting at 5:00 with a time of prayer from 5 – 5:20.  If you arrive after 5, please enter quietly and join us in prayer.We will break at 5:20 for refreshments and begin our study at 5:30. Several of us were moved by the Adult class on Prayer and wanted to incorporate this into our weekly study.

The first study in 2017 will be Paul’s letter to the Galatians.  We will be using Timothy Keller’s book Galatians for You as a guide.  A leader’s guide and a participant’s guide can be found at Timothy Keller’s web site under Study Materials. The study material is titled Galatians: Living in line with the Truth of the Gospel – Group Study PDF Download

The web site is http://www.gospelinlife.com/    There is a nominal fee for these downloads.

During my research I also located the following link. It is a combination of the leader’s and participant’s guide and is available from Inter Varsity at no charge.

Let me know if you are unable to access either one of these sources and I will provide a modified hard copy.


Beginning Thursday, September 15, 2016 Women’s Bible Study will be using a study by Melissa Spoelstra titled ‘Jeremiah; Daring to hope in an unstable World’. The DVD and leader’s guide have already been purchased.  There is an additional Participant’s guide but you would only need that if you would like to do additional Daily study along with the weekly meeting.  The daily study program is good and if you are not currently doing a daily study then this would be a good supplement; however, the weekly can stand alone.

FYI.. the participant guide is less expensive at Amazon. Abingdon press has a trailer from the DVD is case you want a sneak preview


From September through May we meet on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. in the church library for fellowship with the program beginning at 5:30. (During the winter and spring of 2016 we studied the Sermon on the Mount from the book of Matthew.)

In the summer months we gather for three Summer Pot Luck Dinners & Book Discussions.
