Bible Studies

This fall, Women's Ministry is excited to offer 5 different studies with various days/times to fit a variety of schedules. Come, get connected with other women while learning the Word of God. Fall studies will run September-December.

All Things New - A Study on 2nd Corinthians by Kelly Minter 

The city of ancient Corinth was much like our own modern-day cities: a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity. Still, Paul wrote to the church of God in Corinth. Meaning God’s church is meant to thrive in any city and every circumstance in which we find ourselves. Paul’s letter is as timely as ever.

Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

There are many times/locations to choose from:

  • Berean Baptist Church, Wednesday Mornings, 9:30AM-11:30AM, September 21 - November 9
  • Berean Baptist Church, Wednesday Evenings, 6:30PM-8:00PM, September 21 - November 9

When Strivings Cease by Ruth Chou Simons 

In this six-session Bible study, bestselling author, artist, entrepreneur, and speaker Ruth Chou Simons calls women to discover how God's profound gift of grace and favor invites them to rest from chasing approval and earning love, and instead discover the freedom of true belonging and worth that doesn't depend on them.

Jesus In The Scriptures - A Lecture and Discussion Series by Berean Member Jan Skauge

Jesus in the Scriptures presents an overview of the Hebrew Scriptures (OT) to help us see God’s unfolding plan of redemption from Genesis 1 – Revelation 22 and to also see Jesus’ presence in the OT through Pictures (shadows), Promises, Prophesies, and Pre-incarnate appearances. God’s desire is for us to know Him, and the Scriptures unveil Him for us.               
2 Corinthians 4:6 tells us “ For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

  • Berean Baptist Church, Tuesday Evenings, 7:00PM-8:30PM, September 20 – December 13

The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer

What is the nature of God? How can we recapture a real sense of God's majesty and truly live in the Spirit. Tozer's The Knowledge of the Holy, a modern classic of Christian testimony and devotion, addresses these and other vital questions, showing us how we can rejuvenate our prayer life, meditate more reverently, understand God more deeply, and experience God's presence in our daily lives.

Informative and inspiring, The Knowledge of the Holy illuminates God's attributes---from wisdom, to grace, to mercy---and shows through prayerful and insightful discussion, how we can more fully recognize and appreciate each of these divine aspects. This book will be treasured by anyone committed to the Christian faith. It bears eloquent witness to God's majesty and shows us new ways to experience and understand the wonder and power of God's spirit in our daily lives.

Precepts: Romans Part III - The Sovereignty of God and the Free Will of Man

God doesn't go back on His promises. He can always be trusted. Romans 9-11 is an extended discussion of the subject of God's sovereignty—election, predestination, and responsibility—focusing on His choice of Israel and His faithfulness to His covenant. Newcomers welcome - it is not necessary to have completed Romans Parts I & II.

Better Together MORE Mentoring Ministry

Our God created us for relationships. Are you desiring to develop a deeper relationship with another woman in our faith family? Our new women's mentoring ministry "Better Together Mentoring" is about:

  • Connecting women one-on-one
  • Journeying through life together
  • Learning to relate authentically through God's Word
  • Connecting with each other through encouragement and prayer

It’s all about walking alongside each other, listening, loving, and pointing each other to Jesus. Each session is very relational and saturated in Scripture. You will reflect on an attribute of God each time you meet, and there is a beautiful pathway for prayer which is foundational for each session. This pathway is a safe, simple, and easy way to build confidence and accountability in your prayer life.  Time Commitment: 13 Sessions, twice a month, 1 ½ hour.
