We usually meet on the second Monday of the month at the church in
Choir Room, from 12:30 - 2:30 PM.
Leaders of the discussion are members of the group who desire to serve in this manner. But those who simply come, listen and discuss are valuable members of the group. Come as you are, for community, lively discussion, snacks, and increased knowledge of the Bible.

Women’s Bible Study Explores two Book of Faith Studies-- 2011-2012
Women's Bible Study will begin Monday, September 12, from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. in the choir room. We will be doing two Book of Faith Studies:
The first one, from September through December is:
Great Expectations: Studies in Isaiah.
Although a book of prophecy, Isaiah is also one of the most poetic books of
the Bible. These texts from Isaiah are read by people throughout the world during the season of Advent. With imagery such as the lion and lamb lying down together, the holy mountain of God, and streams in the desert, the words of Isaiah are woven together with great expectations of the life to come.
The second study, from January through June 2012, will be: Hebrews.
The Letter to the Hebrews is one of the more sophisticated new testament writings, with the author connecting the Old Testament passages to the present concerns of the community of faith. This study takes five big questions based in the text and challenges participants to explore them thoughtfully together.
