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.

Women's Studies

  • bible study

    The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.

     

    Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, we'll dive into the first 11 chapters of Genesis by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. In addition to discussion, each two-hour session will feature a 30 minute teaching video that builds upon and ties together the personal study. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.  This study begins the week of February 4, 2019:


    Mondays | 7:00 pm | Room 204


    Wednesdays | 10:00 am

    Marie’s Moorpark home


    Thursdays | 10:00 am | 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 Women's Titus 2 Discipleship Group will meet in room 201 on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm beginning March 26, 2019. .

  • 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 next book selection is The New Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan. John Bunyan's classic, allegorical masterpiece is rich with application and timeless inspiration for Christians and describes the adventures of the pilgrim on his Christian walk. Judith E. Markham has discreetly modernized its language while retaining as much of Bunyan's style and form as possible. To enhance readers' understanding, Warren W. Wiersbe's extensive notes explain Bunyan's references to his own life, to the culture of his day, to his theological perspective, and to the numerous Scripture quotations and allusions. The Pilgrim's Progress offers as much encouragement to those who are serious about their Christian walk today as it did when first published in 1678.
