Wednesday Morning Bible Studies 9 – 11 AM

Women of the Word

We all know it’s important to study the Word of God. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. How can we, as Christians women, keep our focus and sustain our passion when reading the Bible? This study offers a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study of Scripture.

Safe People

The Bible contains the keys to developing the skill of character discernment. God’s word helps us understand how to tell safe people from unsafe ones. It teaches us how to become a safe person for others. In this age of broken relationships, these scriptural principles are timeless as well as timely. “Safe People” is a 12 week DVD series and book review presented by Henry Cloud, PH.D. and John Townsend, PH.D.

Loving Like Jesus – 1 Corinthians 13

Loving like Jesus loves is a tall order even when people love us in return! How on earth do we love like Jesus loves in a world that hate? Paul shows us real solutions in 1 Corinthians 13, painting us a vivid and beautiful picture of what love is and isn’t, what love does and doesn’t.

Discover God’s truth for yourself through this practical inductive Bible study of 1 Corinthians 13.

Wednesday Evening Bible Study 6:30 – 8 PM

Armor of God

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you. A cunning, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you – your emotions, your mind, your family, your future. But… when the enemy meets a women dressed for the occasion, he fails miserably.

Join Priscilla Shirer in a 7-session Bible study that will challenge you to stand firm,  and secure victory in your life. This study guide is designed to be used in conjunction with the DVD sessions and includes 5 days of study per session, leader tips, and prayers strategies. In the back are perforated prayer cards for you to craft your own prayers.
