Women's Bible Study

A Discipling Community for women the meets weekly and is focused on Bible study through both learning and discussion. In addition, this intergenerational group fosters connection via relationship, fellowship, and supporting one another in prayer and action.

One of the greatest challenges in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God's greatest gifts. In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.
