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

Women's Studies

  • bible study

    The gospel of Jesus Christ is the door to eternal life, but what difference does it make once we're inside God's kingdom? Jerry Bridges says the gospel is the very lifeblood of our walk with God. It is the key to our salvation, for sure, but it is also the power for our daily progress in holiness. Join the ladies of Bethany church as we read, study, and discuss "the unsearchable riches of Christ" that are available to us in the gospel. This study begins the week of June 24, 2019:

    Mondays | 6:30 pm | Room 204

  • Titus 2 discipleship group

    With Titus 2:3-5 as our guide, our desire is to equip women to pass on the legacy of biblical womanhood to the next generation.

    This is God’s good and beautiful plan. The biblical model of older women living out the gospel and training younger women to do the same, of younger women recognizing the value of older women in their lives—of women adorning the gospel together. Living our lives as Titus 2 women enables us to fulfill the purpose for which we were created. It helps our families and churches to flourish and the beauty of the gospel to shine forth in our world. This is Christian community as God designed it. 

    Join our multigenerational study we look to God’s Word for His perspective on the character, commitments, and attitudes of godly women—and His prescribed process for helping us live out these virtues not only today, but from generation to generation.

    Using Nancy D. Wolgemuth’s book, Adorned, the two Women's Titus 2 Discipleship Groups will meet at Pat's Thousand Oaks home and Robin's Newbury Park home on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:45 pm.

  • Book Club

    Our Bethany Woman's Book Club meets quarterly to discuss an autobiography, biography, or classic work by 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

    Faithful Women & Their Extraordinary GOD, by Noel Piper

    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

    In Trouble and In Joy, by Sharon James

    The New Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan

    The next book selection is Ann Judson: A Missionary Life for Burma, by Sharon James. This book offers the best modern biography of Ann Judson available. If you’re going through trials or suffering, this book will help you discover how life’s challenges, rightly understood, always glorify God and build us up in the faith. Sharon James carefully uses sources to bring Ann (and Adoniram) Judson’s piety and hard work for the Lord to our attention—not to venerate them but to challenge us to a deeper commitment and service to the Lord.
