The general public recognizes the name, person, and work of Jesus Christ; but what do those outside the church know about the 3rd person of the Trinity? What do people inside the church know about this Holy Spirit? We will explore several topics including Who the Holy Spirit is, What His role is, and How He carries out His work.

Despite all that Paul was facing - death, the end of his ministry, abandonment by most of his friends for fear of persecution - he faithfully directs his spiritual son, Timothy, to the hope that is in Christ.

Women's Bible Study Groups

Wednesday Women's Bible Study (WWBS). Wednesdays 9:00 AM @ Fellowship Hall. This group meets regularly during the school year. The upcoming topic starting January 5th is the book of Romans: The Warren Wiersbe Bible Study series. No book of the Bible more clearly illuminates the path of the Christian life than the book of Romans. Paul's power-packed letter stands as a treatise on our faith-tackling important topics of immense importance such as sin, justification, sanctification, and more. Take eight weeks to find out how the book of Romans can help you be right with God, yourself, and others. Trust beloved Bible teacher, Warren Wiersbe, to lead you or your small group on a chapter-by-chapter study that's both penetrating in its analysis and easy to understand. With select excerpts from his best-selling Be Right commentary on Romans and new, life-application questions, you and your small group can embark on a faith-deepening study on the doctrine and theology underpinning everything Christians hold dear. Contact Laura Klein with questions plklein79@yahoo.com.


Working Women's Bible Study. Wednesdays, Jan 26-May 25, 7:00-8:30 PM @Student Ministry Room. All women are invited to join this Bible Study group that meets every other Wednesday in the evening.
