Bible studies are the core of our Women's Ministry at Bethany. Studying God's Word lays the foundation for spiritual growth as we learn to walk daily with the Lord. We offer Bible studies throughout the year, with classes held at different times and days of the week. Each study includes plans for personal study throughout the week that will help you to dig deeply into God's Word. For more information email info@bethanyto.org.

  • Book Club

    Our Bethany Woman's Book Club meets quarterly to discuss an autobiography or biography of a great man or women of faith. The books we have already enjoyed together are:


    A Chance to Die, by Elizabeth Elliott

    Missionary to the New Hebrides, by John Paton

    Her Heart Can See: The Life and Hymns of Franny Crosby, by Edith Blumhofer

    Stepping Heavenward, by Elizabeth Prentiss

    Devil at My Heels, by Louis Zamperini

    Susannah Spurgeon: Free Grace and Dying Love, by C. Ray and S.Spurgeon

    John Newton, by John Crotts

    Joni, An Unforgettable Storyby Joni Eareckson Tada


    The next book selection is In Trouble and in Joy: Four Women Who Lived for God, by Sharon James and contains portraits of four godly women: Margaret Baxter (wife of Richard), Sarah Edwards, Francis Ridley Havergal, and Anne Steele.

    “They had different personalities and varied situations, but each of these four women lived focused lives, wanting to praise God through days of trouble as well as joy. As is true of many women, they had to juggle all sorts of responsibilities. Pursuing holiness did not mean running away from these responsibilities: it involved living every day wholeheartedly for God” (p. 253).
