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.

Money & Possessions

The Quest for Contentment

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

In these days of economic uncertainty, and in a society that values financial security, money is an emotional topic. Appearances and lifestyle matter to us. And money-or the lack of it-often determines whether or not we are content. The truth is, our attitudes toward money and possessions reflect the quality of our relationship with God. And, according to the Scriptures, our view of money reveals where our true affections lie.

Prosperity is not a sin, but it does bring responsibilities. And scarcity is not a virtue, particularly when it distracts us from the things that truly matter..

The Letter of John
A Joy of Living Study

The books of 1, 2, and 3 John are letters written by the Apostle John, who also wrote the Gospel of John. In these three letters, John addresses many truths that are critical to our walk with the Lord. What he has to say within these letters can make the difference between walking, that is living, in condemnation or walking in forgiveness and freedom; between being deceived or knowing the truth; between having the assurance of salvation or living in the fear of death. John helps the believer understand what it truly means to live and walk in fellowship with the Lord.

Evangelical and interdenominational, Joy of Living reaches across denominational and cultural barriers, enriching lives through the simple, pure truths of God’s inspired Word, the Bible.
