There is no question about the high value of God’s Word in the ministry of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, and that priority is evident in the many Bible study opportunities provided here. In particular, our women have numerous occasions and various formats available in which they can join together to learn more of God through His inspired Word.
This summer, our ladies have been meeting in homes throughout the city to study Jerry Bridges’ classic book, The Pursuit of Holiness. In these intimate settings, offered both during the morning and evening, they are being challenged to “pursue holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.”(Hebrews 12:14)
Beginning in the fall and continuing throughout the school year, our women’s Bible study will focus on the book of 1 Samuel. Also offered in both morning and evening sessions, this is an inductive study where our women are equipped to really dig into God’s Word. Together, they will discover what the Scripture says, how to interpret it accurately, and how to apply it practically in their lives. This study involves both large-group and small-group sessions where our ladies have the opportunity to challenge one another, develop intimate relationships, and grow together in their love for God and His Word.
The privilege and responsibility to guide others in studying the Bible is so great that the leaders want to be as well-equipped as possible. Several of our ladies will be traveling to Chattanooga, Tennessee next month for a few days of intensive training in leading Precept Bible studies. Please pray that God will use this time to equip them to serve our Body in a way that will bring much honor to our Savior.
We want to encourage every woman in our church to take advantage of these opportunities to grow together in our study of God’s Word. If you’re hungry for fellowship and friendship, this is absolutely the best place to meet women of all ages and walks of life who love the Lord and are striving together to become more like Him. Won’t you join us?
