Women to Women is a place to study the Bible and be in community with other women who are diverse in age and backgrounds. A broad variety of studies are offered helping discover who God is. You can choose studies that last the school year (September through April) while others are one semester (12 weeks). Women-to-Women desires to foster an open and welcome environment where any woman who comes is welcomed, accepted and encouraged.
Mark your calendars! Women to Women starts once again on September 16, 2015 at 9:30am at the Boulder campus with a friendship brunch. At this brunch we will introduce the three studies that will be offered this first semester. This year's theme is "Growing Stronger in God's Word". As we have for over the past 20 years, we will have a weekly time of fellowship and Bible study in small groups. Our goal is to get to know God in a more intimate way through personal Bible study while we connect with friends old and new.
A change for this year is that most of our small groups will be doing the same Bible study on the books of I and II Timothy, "Fight the Good Fight". This will be led by Sara Schaffer who will incorporate teaching on ways to study scripture on your own to answer the questions; what does the passage say?, what does it mean?, and what does it mean to me personally?. Paul wrote to Timothy with instructions about life and faith. We believe we are living in days that challenge our faith and will only get more and more difficult. Learning to "accurately handle the Word of truth" as Paul says, is essential for our spiritual growth and maturity.
We are also offering two other studies:
“The Beloved Disciple”, by Beth Moore and led by Donna Johnson and Dolores Sargent. A 12 Step Co-dependency Group led by Pat Runyon, Liz Swanson, and Janet Hauser. These two groups will be open to new members as well.
What will this new format look like? We will meet for coffee and fellowship at 9:30, have a time of worship through music and then break into the three study groups. The Timothy group will first have a teaching led by Sara and then the individual tables will split off and have discussion and prayer led by a table leader. These table groups will stay together for the first semester.
We hope and pray you will join us this year as we learn together how to grow stronger through God's word. Women to Women has always been a place for women in our church and community to come together for fellowship and spiritual growth and it is our prayerful desire that this will continue in a dynamic way. Questions? We'd love to answer them. Want to sign up? Please do! Interested in serving? Great! We need your help. Contact Margie Palmer or Theresa Sherard
