We are created for community
New studies begin in the fall (September) and winter (January), but you can jump in anytime. You’ll find study groups centered on specific Bible books or great discipleship books from Christian authors and occasionally groups developed for women in the same stage of life.

Included in Christ
by Heather Holleman
Led by Moira Schnell and Jill McKewan
Included in Christ, is a narrative-driven study where you can bring your life before Scripture in the context of community. Together women will discern their personal shadow narratives—ways they are living outside of their identity in Christ—and then rewrite those narratives according to biblical truth.
This in-depth, 8-week study in Ephesians will equip women with six “signature stories” of God’s work in their lives—helping them combat exclusion, loneliness, weakness, decay, emptiness, and silence.
Designed to facilitate honest sharing and help you internalize biblical truth, Included in Christ will provide community and connectedness as well as spiritual nourishment. It will also guide you in how to share your story and the hope of Christ with someone who doesn't yet know him.

Five Aspects of a Woman
by Barbara K. Mouser
Led by Kay Nitta
Why did God create women? Often explained in one dimensional view. Five Aspects of a Woman is a "big picture" study of Biblical theology of femininity. This study organizes the Bible's teaching on women into five aspects and each aspect is studied as God created it, as sin marred it, as Christ redeemed it, and as it applies to live now. This is a systematic study of a woman's nature based upon the whole counsel of God. The five aspects include Mistress of her Domain, Helper-Completer, Lifegiver, Lady of Wisdom, and Glory of Man. Whether single or married, this will help you to have a fuller understanding of the fullness of woman which is often overlooked.
