Women's Bible Studies


"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom." Colossians 3:16a

Women’s Bible Studies (WBS) primarily focus our women on the second of our church values: firmly grounded in faith, connecting women to the Word. The purpose of WBS is for women to become kingdom disciples in the context of community who move towards spiritual maturity through the study, discussion and teaching of a book of the Bible from a covenantal perspective. 

Each participant in WBS is asked to:

  • study God’s Word on a weekly basis,
  • pray for her sisters in Christ,
  • make attendance to WBS a priority, and
  • make WBS fellowships a priority.

WBS operates on a semester basis: a fall (starting in October) session and a winter/spring (starting January) session. We also have summer studies. 

If you have questions about any of our women's Bible studies, please contact Teresa Caldwell at tcaldwell@christcovenant.org.

Nahum (new Winter study)

Teacher: Carolyn Carpenter
Thursdays, 9:30-11:30 AM

Do you like reading a sequel to a great book? The Book of Nahum is a sequel to the Book of Jonah. Again, God uses one of His prophets to bring warning of judgment to Nineveh in Assyria. This time the Ninevites did not heed God’s warning. Using imagery and pictorial language, Nahum portrays the total destruction of Nineva, a fierce enemy of God’s covenant people.

The destruction of this evil force brought comfort to Judah, as it can to us today. We see God powerfully taking vengeance on enemies of His Kingdom while being a Stronghold in the day of trouble for His people.

Acts

Teachers: Lori Phelps and Fran Wise
Tuesdays, 11:50 AM -1 PM

"Acts is a careful history of the development of the early church.  Luke's descriptions come from a careful researcher who was himself an eyewitness of many of the events he records.  He summarizes the general theme of Acts as follows:  the Lord is going to expand his work "in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth."  Acts is called the "Acts of the Apostles," yet Luke traces only the ministries of Peter (chs. 1-12) and Paul (chs. 13-28).  Acts is a map of the progress of the church into the ancient world showing how the present age began."  RSB

Galatians

Teachers: Melissa McPhail and Lisa Menchinger
Thursdays, 9:30-11:30 AM

Charles H. Spurgeon is quoted as saying, “My faith rests not in what I am or shall be, or feel, or know but in what Christ is, in what He has done and in what He is now doing for me.” What does your faith rest in? The Galatians were easily bewitched into resting in a false gospel of Christ + "my" efforts for justification (legalism). What captivated and charmed them into error? Why are we prone to wander from pure and simple devotion to Christ? Are we any different than the Galatians? Sadly, we are not, Satan’s trickery is nothing new under the sun. The study of Galatians is a warning of the dangers of exchanging God’s grace for our performance. Join us in a inductive study of Galatians to be reminded of and to grow in your understanding of the gospel.

1 & 2 Peter and Jude

Discussion groups followed by teaching time with Sarah Ivill.
Thursdays, 9:30-11:30 AM (resumes January 12)

In our suffering we need hope. In our sin and shame we need grace. And in our service we need reason to continue. We will receive all three as we study seven of the general epistles (James-Jude). James exposes our worship disorders, Peter defines the true grace of God and reminds us we have everything we need to live a life of godliness, John tethers us to love, holiness and doctrine simultaneously, and Jude calls us to contend for the faith and continue in it. All four authors put our eyes on Christ, centering our thoughts on his glory and majesty, and his dominion and authority.

*James and 1, 2, 3 John will be studied in the fall semester (October - November)
1 & 2 Peter and Jude will be studied during the spring semester (January - April)

**Cost of book for the spring semester is $10-15. (When registering, you can pay the $10 and if the book is $15, we'll collect the balance in the class.)
