Bible Studies

Women's Bible Studies combine a deep study of God’s Word with life-on-life relationships. The Bible Studies are designed to meet you where you are in your faith with studies appropriate for someone studying the Bible for the first time or for their lifetime. Not sure what study to take?

4 Great Reasons to Join a Study
  1. To know Jesus more
  2. To know others
  3. To be known
  4. To be changed
What to Expect

Each woman studies God’s Word on her own during the week using guided Bible study books. We gather together for large group teaching either by our Teaching Team, or a DVD teaching from a reputable, biblical teacher. We then break off into our small groups to discuss the teaching and weekly homework and apply God’s truth to our lives.

In our small groups, we invest our time in each other, fostering trust and vulnerability. We celebrate life’s victories, encourage each other in tough times, and keep ourselves accountable in personal growth. God uses all of this to know Him more intimately so that we are changed from the inside out. The more we are changed, the more we look like Jesus—God is glorified, and those around us are impacted.

CURRENT STUDIES

We couldn't be more excited to kick off our studies this fall! We're offering two different study options: Romans 9–16 and Jude. Both options are available in-person (with precautions) or online.

If you are immunocompromised or concerned about COVID-19, please know that we want to come alongside of you in your discipleship journey. While meeting in person may not be an option, we hope that your discipleship remains a priority. In order to help, we are making our Bible Studies available with an online version and the added option of a Virtual Small Group.

Nowhere in the Bible is the Gospel of Jesus Christ so robustly presented, explained, and practically applied than in the book of Romans.

  • Grasp and confidently articulate the Gospel of Grace
  • Find assurance and hope in the doctrines of election, justification, sanctification, and glorification

Series: Series refer to both the quantity and difficulty of the study. Higher the series the more homework you have and the more difficult the homework will be.  If you aren't sure which series to be in, use our discipleship planner.

Study Description

While often overlooked, the Book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception.

In this study from Jackie Hill Perry, dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole Gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.

  • Recognize God's Word as an anchor in the ever-shifting cultural climate.
  • Discover your God-given identity in a world of deception.
  • See how this small, obscure book in Scripture still speaks to the church today.

DISCIPLESHIP PLANNER

Discipleship Planner

Not sure what study to take? Discover your discipleship plan!

Gain the tools necessary to grow into a spiritually mature disciple of Christ! Use our Discipleship Assessment and Discipleship Planner to help make intentional decisions when it comes to planning out your path to spiritual maturity. Take a look at the below for more information on how to begin developing your discipleship plan. 

1. Discipleship Assessment

DISCIPLESHIP ASSESSMENT:
Our free online Discipleship Assessment will rate you in six different categories of spiritual disciplines: 1) Abide in Christ; 2) Live in the Word; 3) Pray in Faith; 4) Community with Believers; 5) Witness to the World; and 6) Minister to Others. 

The score you receive in each category will place you in one of three series levels, with Series 1 being the foundational level, and Series 3 being the most advanced. These series scores will allow you to see which categories are your strengths, and  which categories show room for growth. Armed with this information, you'll be able to make intentional decisions in laying out your discipleship plan.

Six Categories of Spiritual Discipline:

The Discipleship Assessment will rate you in the following six areas of spiritual disciplines:

DISCIPLESHIP PLANNER:
Once you've taken the Discipleship Assessment, use your results to populate your Discipleship Planner. This will help you see the category you should focus on, lay out your next steps for discipleship, and select which Women's Bible Study you'd like to participate in for the upcoming semester.

Three Category Series Levels:

The assessment will place you into a series level for each of the six categories listed above (For example, a score of 70 in the category of "Abide in Christ" would put you in Series 2 for that particular category). The three series levels are:

  • Series 1 (Assessment Score: 0-60) – The foundational level meant for those who are new to Christianity and/or needing to strengthen their discipleship in that particular category
  • Series 2  (Assessment Score: 61-80) – The mid-level meant for those who have a biblical foundation in that particular category, but who desire further growth and more challenging homework
  • Series 3 (Assessment Score: 81-100) – The most difficult level, requiring more time, more completed homework, additional resources, and a firm understanding of the Bible

Please note that you may not (and most likely won't) score in the same series across all six categories.

3. Bible Study Selection
Connect Your Discipleship Plan with Your Bible Study:

To further equip you in growing in these six areas of spiritual discipline, we have integrated the categories and series levels into our Bible Studies for the upcoming semester. Under each study description, you will see the categories that are focused on during each study, as well as opportunities to take those studies at the different series levels (for example, "Wife of Noble Character" is a great study for women looking to grow in the "Live in the Word" category, and can be taken as a Series 1, 2, or 3).

Each Bible study semester, our goal is to offer studies in 3 different spiritual categories. In the Fall Semester, we offer studies in the categories of Abide in Christ, Live in the Word, and Community with Believers. In the Spring Semester, we offer studies in the categories of Pray in Faith, Minister to Others, and Witness to the World.
