Begins February 4, Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in Room 2236

Women’s Thursday Morning Bible Study
Trustworthy by: Lysa TerKeurst
Begins January 9 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 3204
When hard times come and it seems like God is deviating from the plan, we assume our life should follow. We’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try. In this six-week study of 1 & 2 Kings, participants will join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart. She will also explore the applicable scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God. The study will begin Jan. 9, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., in room 3204. Companion study guides can be purchased in the WC Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Broken and Blessed: Women’s Bible Study
Begins Monday, January 13 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 3103
Broken and Blessed is a six-week study that traces the story of the Genesis family, from Adam and Eve, through the generations to Joseph. This class will focus on bringing blessing from brokenness. Participants will see that, despite both good and bad traits that were passed down, God worked for good in every generation—determined to transform those within and outside the family bloodlines. The study ends with the story of Joseph, who decided to stop the cycle of previous generations by offering forgiveness and grace to his brothers. Through these stories of Genesis, New Testament teachings about family, and stories of contemporary families changed and used by God, this study shows people how God can use their own, imperfect families to bring blessing to a hurting and broken world. Join facilitator Susann Smith as this group journeys through the book of Genesis together. Workbooks are available at the Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Determined Women's Bible Study
Begins Wednesday, January 15 from 6 to 7 p.m. in Room 2235
Live intentionally and embrace the abundant life! Do you drift through the day not appreciating the gift of every moment? It's easy to do. Learn how to make the most of each day by following in the footsteps of Jesus - the One who lived with a joy-filled determination, laser-focused on his mission to love the world. In this 6-week study of the book of Luke, you'll follow the ministry of Jesus and consider the choices He made on His way to the cross.
Elijah: Women’s Bible Study
Begins Thursday, January 16 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 2235
Life is like a rollercoaster. One day it seems that everything in life is good, and the next day, it can feel like everything is falling apart. The prophet Elijah experienced this rollercoaster ride as well. In this seven-week study, grounded in 1 and 2 Kings, we will examine the life of the prophet Elijah, an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God in the midst of the highs and lows of life. We’ll learn some of the spiritual stamina secrets that helped him hold on to and persevere his faith. This includes practical habits related to making decisions, caring for the soul, accepting circumstances, mentoring, and finishing well—which was Elijah’s ultimate legacy. Best of all, his story will challenge us - but not shame us - because we’ll discover that Elijah was just as human as we are. He doubted and struggled just as we do, but ultimately, he chose to believe God. Join Rev. Joy Roberson as WC Women journey through the story of Elijah. Workbooks are available at the Circuit Writers Bookstore.
Wednesday Night Women’s Bible Study
It’s Not Supposed to Be This Way by Lisa Terkeurst
Begins March 4 at 6 p.m. in room 2235
Life often looks so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events may simply catch us off guard for a moment, but others shatter us completely. We feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa TerKeurst understands this deeply. But she's also discovered that our disappointments can be the divine appointments our souls need to radically encounter God. Join facilitator Kara Hayter as we journey through this study for six weeks. Study guide and book are available in the Circuit Writers bookstore.
Rhythms of Renewal Women’s Bible Study
Begins Thursday, March 5 at 9:30 a.m. in room 2235
As a society, we are in the throes of a collective panic attack. Anxiety and loneliness are on the rise, with 77% of our population experiencing physical symptoms of stress on a regular basis. We feel pressure chasing careers, security, and keeping up. We worry about health, politics, and many other complexities we can't control. Eventually we find our minds spinning, trying to cope or manage a low hum of anxiety, unlike ever before. But it doesn't have to stay this way.
Author Rebekah Lyons draws from her own battle with depression and anxiety and shares a pathway to establish four life-giving rhythms that quiet inner chaos and make room for a flourishing life. By taking time to rest, restore, connect, and create, you will discover how to:
