WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDIES

Women's Community Bible Study-God of Creation
Where did everything come from? Why are we here? Why is the world so broken? You are invited to walk through the first 11 chapters of Genesis with women who are hungry to study God's Word and allow it to transform us as we grow in relationship with God and each other. The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God and address our deepest questions shaping our understanding of the Bible as a whole. We watch Him bring light out of darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word. Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study and video teaching by Jen Wilkin, we will revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge our basic knowledge and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator. Please join us!
