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:

1 Peter (Jen Wilkin’s video series)
Tuesday Morning, 9:00 - 11:00 am

Weekly, beginning January 22 - March 19

In this verse by verse study of Peter’s first letter to the New Testament believers, he describes our true identity in Christ and points us to a walk with Jesus characterized by humility and submission.

Tuesday Nights, 7:00 - 9:00 pm

Thursday Classes:

Precepts: Ruth
Thursday Mornings, 9:00 - 11:00 am

Meeting Bi-Weekly, beginning February 14 - April 11

If you’ve been wanting to try a Precepts inductive Bible study, this short book (just 4 lessons) is a good way to get a taste! Learn through the story of Ruth, how Jesus both bought us (redeemed) and advocates for (defends) us, giving us an opportunity to rebuild our broken lives.

In His Image: 10 Ways God Calls Us to Reflect His Character
(by Jen Wilkin)
*HOME GROUP, Meets Thursday Evenings in Crystal Lake,
7:00 - 8:30 pm

Weekly, beginning January 31 - April 25

This book study will focus on ten of God’s attributes which answer the question, “Who must I be like?” rather than “What must I do?”. As image bearers, and in union with Christ, we are free to be conformed to and reflect His likeness, through the work of His Spirit in our lives.

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.
