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

  • Summer study

    During a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a lengthy Bible study on the topic of God's sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and in Trusting God, he shares the fruit of that study. This new edition of Bridges' classic book includes the study/discussion guide.

    The 7-week study of Trusting God, by Jerry Bridges, begins the week of June 17 and meets Monday evenings at 7:00 pm in room 204 or Thursday mornings at 10:00 am in the Community Room.
