Women’s Bible Study

Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you; your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.
Isaiah 26:8

The Women’s Bible Study group at First Baptist Church began in the summer of 1998 with six ladies. Since that first meeting, we have offered 140 Bible studies. We have also read 61 books over the last seventeen years in our summer reading club. During the last twenty years, more than 300 women have participated in at least one of our studies or reading clubs. We hope that you will plan to join us this year!

Loving God and Others:

The Heart of True Faith

By Kay Arthur, David and BJ Lawson (40-Minute Bible Study)

It’s easy to get confused about how to please God. One Bible teacher details a long list of the commands you should be keeping. The next teacher says only grace matters. Who is right?

Centuries ago, in answer to this question, Jesus simplified all the rules and regulations of the Law into just two great commands: love God and love people.
Loving God and Others looks at how these two commands define the heart of Christian faith. As you rest in the certain knowledge of what God calls you to, you will be challenged to live these commands out-and discover how obeying Jesus’ simple commands will transform not only your life but also the lives of those around you.

Psalm 23
The Shepherd with Me
by Jennifer Rothschild

 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
Many women know Psalm 23 by heart but haven’t experienced its power in their lives. This beloved psalm can breathe new life into women who are weary and unsure of their next steps. It’s more than a psalm that comforts in death; it gives confidence in life.
In this 7-session study by Jennifer Rothschild, gain fresh insight and encouragement from Psalm 23. Explore the depths of God’s compassionate care while debunking the self-reliance myth. Learn how your vulnerability is not a liability because you can trust the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life.
