Encouraging and Equipping Women to Live for God’s Glory
As we seek to become worshipers maturing in Christ, we must be rooted in scripture. The Women’s Ministry desires to help women do this by offering a variety of Bible studies throughout the year.
The Sermon on the Mount // study by Jen Wilkin
In-person, Room 172 at East White Oak
Led by Tonya Southwood
Thursdays, September 15 – November 10, 2022
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? The Sermon on the Mount articulates what the life of a Christ follower should look like, asking us the same questions it posed to its original hearers: How should a disciple relate to sin? To others? To the Law? How does a disciple think, speak, and act? In this 9-session study, examine the words of Jesus in depth as He challenges us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification.
This small group video study by Jen Wilkin will meet at the church on Thursday mornings. Cost of the book is $17.00. Questions? Contact Tonya Southwood at [email protected] or 309-287-4542.

From judges to kings, from the departure of God’s glory to the assurance of His help, from inquiring of the Lord to inquiring of a medium—1 Samuel contrasts and sets before us the importance of a life of obedience and how it’s lived out in the midst of interpersonal conflicts.

Small Group Bible Study for Beginners
In-person, Room 173 at East White Oak
6 Week Study
Tuesdays, September 20 – November 1, 2022
Have you ever been intimidated by the very words “Bible Study”? Have you tried to read the Bible before, but it just didn’t make any sense to you? Are you new to Christianity and want to learn more? This 6-week study might just be for you! Join us as we discover the Why and How of studying God’s Word in a supportive and encouraging small group atmosphere. Different methods of Bible study will be explored, as we apply God’s Word to our lives. The format will vary week-to-week and materials will be distributed in class for personal practice at home. This is not meant to be an exhaustive course, but hopefully it will whet your appetite for more, and deepen your relationship with the Lord.
This study will also be helpful to those who are more “experienced” in Bible study. You may want to encourage a friend by attending with them. Or you may simply want to learn how to help others in your life who do not yet study God’s Word.
Whatever your reason for coming…bring your Bible and let’s get started!
Cost is $5.00 for the binder and weekly materials. Questions? Contact Diane Fahrenkrug at [email protected] or 309-824-2622.
