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 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. 

During the school year, 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. 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, and that the Lord will transform us together into a people addicted to His

WINTER 2024 - We will be offering one Tuesday morning study and one Tuesday evening study, both beginning on January 16, 2024. 

Here are the classes offered this winter:

The Story of Scripture from Eden to Eternity

Many people have a knowledge of the Bible’s stories and characters, but don't understand or appreciate the master narrative. The Bible is one cohesive story from Genesis to Revelation. It is a beautiful story that points to one Person. It is a story of how our eternal God is on a mission to redeem and restore His rebellious children. A story with many different books, with many different styles. But it is a story that is not only meant to inform us, but transform us.

Join us Tuesday mornings from 9:30-11:00 for this overview of the Bible. There is no book to purchase; however, it is recommended that you bring a binder for the handouts you’ll receive.

Free childcare is provided for pre-schoolers. Ladies, please sign up at the Welcome Centre or contact the church office.  If you’ll be bringing little ones, please add their names and ages to the sign-up sheet so we can plan for childcare.

The Minor Prophets

Starting on Tuesday, January 16th at 7:00 p.m., I am excited to be leading a study on the first six of the twelve minor prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah and Micah.

The study will run for 11 weeks and will be an overview of each of these books.  We will look at the books in their historical context: who was king in the northern and southern kingdoms when the book was written? We’ll do a character check: who were these men called to prophesy?  And we’ll briefly touch on how the books were grouped: where did the term “minor prophets” come from?

We will also look at four themes that are often represented in each of the books:

  1. The times the prophet and people found themselves in
  2. The threatening captivities and eventual restoration
  3. The coming of the Messiah
  4. The reign of Messiah as king

These books can be fun to study because they are not overwhelmingly lengthy even if the message they deliver may be a bit ominous!  Remember though, the promise of the Messiah is always present, and we will see how that promise is fulfilled over and over again through the verses from the minor prophets that appear in the New Testament.

We would love to have you join us Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 this winter for this study. Bring a binder or duotang for the study sheets that will be handed out each week. There is no book to purchase.

You can sign up by adding your name to the list at the Welcome Centre or EMAIL the church office.
