Women of the Word groups are 5 to 7 women who gather weekly to study God’s Word and encourage each other toward spiritual maturity. Women will be given tools for daily study of Bible passages and then gather together weekly to discuss what they learned, pray for each other, and encourage one another in their walk with the LORD.

Joining a group

We are studying the Minor Prophets this fall. Watch here for more information.

What to Expect

Groups will consist of five to seven women, committed to meeting weekly to share what they have discovered in their daily bible study. A reading and journaling plan will guide group members through a specific book of the Bible. Each day, women will read a portion of Scripture and explore truths about God, truths about people, find the main idea of the passage, connections to the Gospel, and how to apply the passage personally.

Register

It would be helpful to know if you plan to attend a group before you arrive. Please email Stephani at stephanikarges@bethelfc.com or call her at 701.232.4476 to let her know which group you plan to attend.

FLOURISH: A Mentoring Journey is a year-long commitment that connects women in a curriculum-based mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walks with Jesus. FLOURISH calls women to a higher standard of living following the commands in Titus 2:3-5, a God-filled life for the sake of the Gospel.

What will this look like…

We are just starting this program and will be receiving applications for Mentors first. Once our mentors are trained, we will be able to receive applications for women who would like to be mentored. After the applications are received, women will be matched together and begin the journey of Flourish. These matched women will meet face-to-face monthly. Mentors may have more than one mentee. We ask that you have devotional time in the Word five days a week, which includes also connecting with your mentor via phone or text at the end of each week.

Mentors

We are looking for mentors now. Mentors commit themselves to being rooted in God’s Word and walking daily in His truth together with those they mentor. Their commitment to this process is to:

  1. Explore what the Scriptures say about topics such as: prayer, identity, calling, kinship, and gratitude.
  2. Be authentic and real, encouraging spiritual growth
  3. Pray for the Mentee
  4. Be available and keep commitments

Print the application form and apply today by clicking here.

Mentees

In late November or early December, you will be able to apply to be a mentee. The program will begin January 2020. If you are interested in being a mentee you must complete the application process and be matched. Just “showing up” will not be an option for this program. The team will carefully match each mentee with a mentor.

Cost

Each participant will need to purchase a journal.

Mentor Journal – $25 (If you sign up to be a Mentor before December 7 you will get $5 off)
Mentee Journal – $20

Payments will be taken after applications are processed.

Enjoy community as you engage in specific opportunities for women centered around gathering with those who have a common interests.
