Bible Training for Women

God has chosen to reveal himself to us through the Bible. When we dive into his Word we discover the riches of God’s character and his redemptive plan for us and this world. But sometimes it's hard to know where to start. On March 21st, we will learn what it looks like to study a book of the Bible on its own. In walking through the book of Philippians, we will learn and practice tools for studying the Bible and helping others in doing the same.

Before gathering on March 21, you will have the opportunity to begin practicing study skills by completing prep work for the day. In addition to hands-on-learning, you will also be provided with various resources that will help as you continue to study the Word of God upon returning to your homes and churches. You can come to this event on your own. It’s also an ideal opportunity to bring a group of women from your church and grow together.
