Ministry of Women

Winter 2023 Women's Bible Studies

Most, or maybe all, of us struggle with spiritually unhealthy patterns in our lives or perhaps with an addiction of some sort. We are so easily lured and hooked by 'stuff', or our phones, or self-image, or food, or alcohol, or books, or work, or... Which leads to us wasting our days, lonely, in a meaningless haze of unfulfilling activities.

We invite you to join us this winter in a different sort of pattern and addiction - to the joy of the Holy Spirit opening the truths of God's Word to us as we study it together. 

Tuesday is "Bible study day" at Peoples Church. Let's make that our first new pattern! Secondly, let's replace some of that wasted time each day with reading and studying and thinking and praying about that week's Bible passage.

We focused last summer on learning about our connectedness in Christ's body, and we want to continue growing in this area. Doing Bible study together offers an ongoing and practical way to build relationships within a community of believers who learn from each other and hold each other accountable. 

We are praying that each woman at Peoples Church will consider joining us in Bible study this winter, and that the Lord will transform us together into a people addicted to His Word and to the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives, for His glory.

Our winter studies will begin the week of January 16, 2023 with several studies running on different days of the week and various times. Please continue reading for the details and then sign up for the study you plan to participate in.

Free childcare is provided during the Tuesday morning study.

A Year in the Psalms

Let’s go on a great adventure in 2023 and spend a year reading the Psalms! In this group, we will be using a new study format, allowing for greater participation from the fulltime working woman to the retired granny and everyone in between.

A reading plan will be provided, and we will meet once a month on the third Monday evening at 7:00 as well as the third Tuesday (childcare provided) or Wednesday morning at 9:30 to challenge each other and discuss what we are learning. This will be a time to connect with GOD’s Word and with each other. Hopefully we will grow in both our praise and prayers as we delight in the Psalms together.

There will be an initial kickoff gathering toward the end of December for all those in the group so that we can get right into the Psalms on January 1st. Date and time of this meeting to be determined so please sign up and we will let you know the details once confirmed.

Let’s encourage one another by spending consistent time in God’s Word through reading the Psalms every day of the year 2023.

 

Daniel: Shining in Babylon

The book of Daniel can be summed up in one sentence: If you want to make a difference, then you need to be different. You need to be distinct from Babylon in some very crucial ways. For Daniel and his friends, that manifested in the food they ate (or did not eat), the way they prayed, and where they placed their highest allegiance. They resolved to be guided by the Bible, not by Babylon.

Another theme in Daniel is the sovereignty of God over all things. God will continue to advance His story until that story is complete. He is in charge and in control.

Together we are going to use an inductive Bible study method to look closely at what the Bible says in order that we can discover what it means and faithfully apply in our lives.

We will meet Tuesday mornings at the church from 9:30-11:00. There is no book to purchase, but study materials will be handed out, so please sign up if you plan to attend. Childcare is provided at no charge, but please indicate names and ages of any children you will be bringing.

Ecclesiastes: Nothing New Under the Sun

Ecclesiastes presents the student of Scripture with a view of life “under the sun” that is thought-provoking and challenging. The wisdom of this book is the Preacher’s reminder to the reader to fear God as He is the only One we can trust in a fallen and confusing world. This book speaks boldly to our world and its realities today, and our need to trust God even when we don’t understand the circumstances around us.

This study will run for 10 weeks on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30. We will not meet on February 28th. Study materials will be provided. Please sign up so we know how many to prepare for.

  • Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin – not a Bible study, but a great book
  • The Bible in 90 Days – not a study but a great tool to read through the whole Bible in 90 days. It’s a worthwhile challenge, but it can be done!

RightNow Media 

All of you have free access to RightNow Media if you wish, and they offer many great studies.  If you need a new invitation for RightNow Media, contact Helena and she can get you set up. Here are some that we recommend for you.
