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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hebrews helps us understand the overall story of the Bible: the scope of redemptive history, how it all led to Christ, and how Christ fulfilled it all. As you study the book of Hebrews, you will see that the Old Testament was fulfilled by Jesus Christ in the New Testament and the superiority of Christ – his glory, his honor, and his divinity — above all things.
Join us as we discover how Hebrews unlocks the glorious tapestry of God’s progressive revelation.
The first semester of this study is finished and we're now taking sign ups for the second semester that begins the week of September 14. Click here to sign up for the Hebrews Study, Part 2 today!

For those who want to purchase the supplemental resource, Exalting Jesus in Hebrews, by Al Mohler, it is available from Amazon and other online sellers.
“Teach what accords with sound doctrine. Older women ... are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.......so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.”
Titus 2:3-5, 10
With these words from the book of Titus as our guide, we encourage women to study, learn and mentor others about understanding, living, and passing on the legacy of biblical womanhood to the next generation. Join one of our studies and 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.
Below is the current list of discipleship group book studies under the ministry umbrella of Titus 2.
Precious Truths in Practice: Holding Fast to God When You Are Overwhelmed, by Martha Peace
When our lives are in crisis and we are overwhelmed and filled with anxiety, Christians can lean on the steadfast promises of God to get them through each day. Our faith is strengthened by the knowledge of the character of God. God wants to be known by His children, and evidence of that is found throughout Scripture. This book will increase your faith and help you to find peace as you trust in God's path for your life.
You Can Trust God to Write Your Story, by Nancy & Robert Wolgemuth
Come, learn how God writes our story, which is rarely neat, tidy and boring! We'll start with a discussion and a definition on God’s providence, the biblical story of Esther and how God used her through difficult trials to carry out His purpose, and Nancy & Robert’s love story. The rest of the chapters focus on trusting God when you long for a mate, are pressed financially, when you lose your health, are sinned against, lose a loved one, and many other life challenges.
Becoming a Titus 2 Woman, by Martha Peace
The purpose of this group is to come together in order to grow and learn how to be qualified mentors of women at Bethany Bible Church. Believing that Jesus left us with the command to go and make disciples, we want to fulfill that mandate by enabling all generations of women to radiantly reflect the glory of Christ and flourish in every area of life.
