Ladies’ Bible Studies

Ladies’ Bible Studies

 

Throughout the year, Bethany offers ongoing and short-term Ladies’ Bible Studies that meet at various times throughout the week. We have morning, afternoon and evening classes. Several options are available for you to study God’s Word. We have classes that meet in person at Bethany, online classes you take with a group of ladies, or independent studies you can do on your own time.

Need childcare? Onsite childcare is offered during the Thursday morning studies. For other options, or if you have questions, please contact the office at 692-1755. These are the classes we have for Fall 2021:

Anticipate what God has for us in the future-the return of Christ, creation of new Heaven and new earth, and our eternal home.

Romans

Precept Upon Precept Inductive Study – Freed From Sin’s Penalty. All have sinned. There is none righteous. We are declared righteous by God only by faith in the blood of His Son. Romans 1-5 explains the foundational doctrines of our faith – original sin, justification, redemption, and propitiation. Gain an excellent grasp of the doctrine of salvation!

God of Deliverance

Book: by Jen Wilkin
Cost: Book $16
The exodus of the Israelites shapes our understanding of the whole Bible, its themes reverberating all the way to Revelation. Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakabley guided by the Great Deliverer. Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the One True God.
