Weekly / Monthly Events for Women in 2019-2020

Women’s Bible Study (Fall Semester 9/18 to 12/15) (Spring Semester 1/15 to 4/26)

The goal of Women’s Bible Study is to help women meet Jesus through the study of God’s Word. Our desire is to see women grow in their faith-transformed more and more into the likeness of Jesus Christ. This year we will study Hebrews. Get all the details by clicking HERE. There are three class meeting opportunities each week: Wednesday mornings (9:30am), Wednesday evenings (7pm), Friday mornings (6am) and Sunday mornings (9am).

Women’s Discipleship Groups (start various days in September)

Women’s Discipleship Groups will be forming this fall! Each group of about 8 women will meet once a month from September to May. We have a short Bible study (no homework) in which we talk about a Biblical perspective on the events of our lives, and then we pray for each other. Some groups eat a meal. We’re looking for new interested women, leaders, and hosts for Tuesday and Thursday evening groups, a new Wednesday brown bag lunch group (where mothers can bring young children!), and a Friday evening group for single women. We can consider other nights if there is enough interest and a host/leader. For more info. or to sign up, please contact Joanna Andrews at joanna.andrews@gmail.com, or see Joanna, Debby Wood, or Rita Harris after church. We would love to have you join us!
