Fall 2022 Groups
Neighborhood Bible Study
Wednesdays 10:00am-12:30pm at Highlands beginning September 7th
This is a no-homework class for women who want to grow in their knowledge of the Bible. We will answer such questions as What is the Bible? Where did it come from? How do we know it’s true? Why are there so many translations? How can we study the Bible to hear God’s voice in our lives through its pages? And much more. Neighborhood friends, relatives, coworkers and sceptics who are not familiar with faith and have questions about the Bible will be Welcome! Pack a brown bag and plan to stay for lunch on the patio each week.
Daniel & Titus
Mondays at 6:00pm & Tuesdays at 9:30am at Highlands
The Daniel portion of this study begins September 26 & 27 and continues through May 2023 (no meetings in December)
This study in Daniel and Titus utilizes the Precept method of inductive study. It will allow our women to get to know our most high God and gain insight to the times we are living in through the prophetic book of Daniel, God's blueprint for Bible prophecy. Combined with a study of the book of Titus, this group will mentor women toward the personal holiness that provides strength for daily living while teaching spiritual disciplines.
Childcare is available for the Tuesday morning group - please pre-register your kids here.
Chronological Bible Study
By studying the Bible ordered chronologically, we gain a clearer and broader picture of God and His redemptive plan for mankind. Starting at the beginning creates a foundation that allows His story to unfold progressively revealing who He is and His astonishing plan for the human race. All classes require the NIV Daily Chronological Bible edited by F. LaGard Smith. It can be purchased on Amazon at this link. We also strongly recommend purchasing the Satellite Bible Atlas.

The heart of our "flourish" group is to see women being firmly rooted in God’s Word and walking daily in His truth.

This class will continue through the school year, with breaks over holidays, and includes light reading and brief daily reflection time.
