As the foundation of all we believe and all we do, women meet regularly to study God’s word for spiritual growth and fellowship. “Do you best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
Spring Bible Studies
Weekly for two hours | Ongoing
Sexual Sanity for Women by Ellen Dykas. As we journey to honestly face how sin has developed in our lives, consider this wonderful prayer, “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!” (Psalm 139:23) We can honestly reflect upon our sinful strategies for dealing with life with our loving Father and be led into the way everlasting. Together let’s learn how to image Christ in relationships of integrity with both genders, within our families, and within womanhood. This study is currently closed, but will be offered again Fall 2023. Contact Jonelle to sign up.
9:00-11:00 a.m. | January 31-May 9
This group will study The Lamb of God: Seeing Jesus in Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy by Nancy Guthrie. We will gain a deeper perspective on the story of Israel's deliverance and journey, and a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture as we discover the many ways that Moses spoke about Christ in the Bible's story from beginning to end. This study started in the fall and will continue on from the end of Exodus, but new participants (up to 14 total due to space) are welcome. Meets at the home of Cindy Kewley in Harrisonburg. Childcare is available. Contact Kristin McCombe or Dorothy Scheel to sign up.
7:00-9:00 p.m. | January 31-April 25
Joshua: All God’s Good Promises by Kathleen Nielson. This study brings you face-to-face with the promise-keeping God of Joshua and of today. We will learn of God’s promise to be with Joshua wherever he goes as he leads the people to the Promised land. We will be challenged to respond in faith and obedience to this same faithful, powerful, covenant-keeping God. The study is limited to 12 participants and meets at the home of Barbara Nuckols, just west of Harrisonburg off Rt 33. Contact Barbara Broome to sign up by January 24.

This group will study Del Jardín a la Gloria (From Garden to Glory) by Courtney Doctor. This study provides a panoramic view of the Bible. The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a beautiful, epic, and cohesive story. It is the story of how our eternal God is on a grand mission to redeem and restore his rebellious and wayward children but it is not a story meant to merely inform us. The story itself is meant to transform us and invite us to participate in this glorious redemption of all things! You will marvel at the steadfast love of our God who longs to dwell with his children again as he did in the Garden—and who will stop at nothing until he does. This study will be taught in Spanish and will meet at the church. There will be no childcare provided but moms with no other option may bring their children to stay in the same room with us. Contact Nínive Logie to sign up.
6:00-7:30 a.m. | Beginning January 27
