Women’s Wednesday Mid-Morning Bible Study

  • Where: LaGrave Church Parlor.
  • Format: Meetings begin with coffee and fellowship, followed by devotions and prayer. Members then split into small groups for Bible study. Weekly lessons are taken from a study guide based on a theme, or book in the Bible. We welcome women who desire a challenging but user-friendly Bible study that speaks to the issues and questions of our daily lives.

Women’s Beth Moore Bible Studies (offered at two times)

  • When: Weekly on Thursday mornings from 9:15 to 11:15 am. Session one begins on September 22, and a second session will begin in January.
    Where: LaGrave Church Parlor.
  • When: Weekly on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm, starting on September 20. A second session will begin in January.
    Where: LaGrave Executive Conference Room.
  • Format: During the week, members spend time alone with God working through each day’s homework. At the meetings, small groups discuss the homework and then come together as a large group to view a DVD teaching from Beth Moore.

Spiritual Journey

  • When: Every other Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 am, beginning September 7.
  • Where: LaGrave Lower Level Meeting Room.
  • Format: This group gathers to read a short Scripture passage, slowly and reflectively; listening for specific words or themes that capture attention.  Then everyone separates in order to privately meditate on and respond to the Word.  This year, using Contemplative Vision by Juliet Benner, a painting will be included with each passage to help see the scene through the eyes of an artist– some well known, others not so much.  The book also includes questions to ponder during the alone time, making this a very accessible and non-intimidating way to incorporate Lectio Divina into your prayer life.
