SouthPark Women’s Ministry works to be a community where women of all ages and life stages can join together to worship and learn about Christ. That’s why we offer a variety of Bible studies open to all women.

We offer studies on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings during the summer. In the fall and spring, we also hold Friday morning studies.

In and Out: Steadfast Love  by Lauren Chandler; Facilitated by Kathy Fruendt and Ruth Baughman

There are times when worship overflows effortlessly from a heart full of gratitude and praise. And there are times when God seems far and we feel we have nothing to offer. Throughout it all, God shows us His steadfast love. In this seven-session Bible study from Lauren Chandler, we will study Psalm 107 verse by verse. Learn to face each season of life with courage and trust in Jesus, and discover how tests in our journeys of faith reveal the true condition of our hearts. For there is no fear for the one who fears the Lord, the one whose soul is anchored in His steadfast love.

All In…Step to the Edge  Team-Taught by Melissa Myers, Sandy Fulginiti, Lisa Giller, and Rebecca Woolery

All In. Step to the edge. Throw caution to the wind. No more excuses. It is time to begin living and sharing the powerful story of Jesus without reservation or fear. Explore the story of how the church began even as the forces of hell tried to thwart it. Paul, Silas, Peter, and the other apostles were transformed by the Spirit and unstoppable. How does this happen? How do ordinary men and women get the courage to move to the edge, and wait with expectancy to see what God would do? The books of Acts will help to bridge your understanding from the Gospel accounts to the call to action in the New Testament letters. As you journey through this story of the early church, it will help clarify your purpose, infuse you with courage and help you uncover your role in living out gospel hope. This class is a continuation of the Fall 2018 study; new registrations are welcome. 

Cost: $20
Study Type: Live teaching with small group discussion

The Rock, The Road, and the Rabbi  by Kathi Lee Gifford

There is something profound about following the ancient paths and walking in the actual places where Jesus taught, healed, lived, died, was resurrected, and ascended into Heaven. Connecting with Jesus through the places where he walked reveals that he is indeed the Rock, the Rabbi whom we should follow on the Road. Our hearts and minds experience radical transformation when teachers who are trained in the ancient rabbinical way introduce us to the mysteries of the Word. In this study, Kathi Lee shares her transformative experiences and introduces us to her teachers: Ray Vander Laan, Rod Van Solkema, and Rabbi Jason Sobel, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi who has been unpacking historical analysis and eye-opening revelations around the world. Discover astonishing pictures of the actual sites as you read about old and new stories that happened there. At the close of each chapter Rabbi Sobel presents deeper insight into the Hebrew culture, language, and the means of connection that opens up a new understanding of faith and heritage.
