New Bible Study – True Spirituality by Chip Ingram

**We are taking a break during the Covid-19 outbreak but please continue to watch for updates as we plan to resume as soon as possible.**

In Romans 12, God gives us a clear picture of what Christians should look like at the root level. If you’re ready to move beyond the motions of religion and experience a real relationship with God, your journey begins here. This 12-week study kicks off Saturday, January 25 and meets every other week from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Skaff Apartment Community Room, 4955 17th Avenue S, Fargo (Stone Village West). The study will conclude June 13, followed by a potluck lunch.

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

Beginning the week of January 8, we will be studying the books of 1 & 2 Timothy.

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.

Winter

Tuesday Morning MOMs Group

Our Tuesday morning Children’s Programming is available upon registration. If you have any questions, please email Amy – amyhashbarger@bethelfc.com.
