Whether you are new to the Bible or a mature student of God’s Word, study and discussion groups meet from September through May at various times throughout the week. Learn together with other women what God has revealed about Himself and His people through one of these classes:

Tuesday Classes:

Behold Your God: The Weight of Majesty
Tuesday Mornings, 9:00 - 11:00 am 

Weekly, beginning September 18 

In this second part of the BEHOLD YOUR GOD series, our study will focus on how a biblical appreciation of God’s character should affect our everyday lives. (There is no requirement to have taken part one of the series.) Meeting weekly on Tuesday mornings, we will learn together via DVD teaching (and group discussion) about a specific attribute of our great God. For example, Knowing the God Who Does Not Change, Knowing the God of Love, and Knowing the God Who is Holy are a few of the 12 lesson titles.

Tuesday Nights, 7:00 - 9:00 pm

13 week class, beginning September 11

In this 13-week study in the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, we learn of God’s faithfulness and His ability to restore not only a wall, but His people to a place of blessing. The message of Nehemiah is one of hope and restoration that is still relevant for us today. Led by Janette Dickerson, this group will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings beginning September 11.

Discipleship Groups
(or One-To-One Discipling)

Varying days and times

Do you have a desire to grow in your knowledge of God, the Bible, or the Christian life? Would you like for this growth to occur in the context of a relationship with an older/more mature woman (see below - Disciple-making Opportunity) and in a way that meets you right where you are? Previously known as “one-to-one mentoring,” these relationships can be customized to the needs and schedules of the women involved.

Disciple-making Opportunity

Varying days and times

Have you prayerfully considered Christ’s command to make disciples? As Mark Dever defines it in his little book, Discipling, this is simply “helping another person follow Jesus.” No matter where you are on your Christian walk, there is always a woman behind you on that journey who can benefit from your wisdom and experience--even if you don’t think so! Please contact Joan Wagner (jwagner@efccl.org) for more information on this opportunity.
