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

  • inductive bible study

    While many Christians know that Psalm 119 is a monumental passage about the Scriptures, fewer recognize that it is also a believer's heart-felt prayer to God. This chapter is a precious treasure, showing us how to pattern our lives and thoughts upon the Word of God and how to respond by lifting up our souls in prayer.

    Text will be available at Bethany Church. You may order on your own by clicking the icon to the left. Click here for the Introductory Assignment and Lesson 1.
