Women of the Word

The Ministry of Jesus through the Parables

Ladies, are you looking for your next right step towards Jesus? We want to encourage every woman at Bethel to join us for our Women of the Word (WOW) Study. This Fall we will focus on The Ministry of Jesus through the Parables. Teri Verduyn and her team of amazing women have put together an incredible book filled with insightful and helpful tools designed for God’s Word to come alive as His Holy Spirit awakens us to His truth. We gather together in groups of 3-20 weekly to share what God is teaching us and learn from one another. We need one another so deeply for cheering one another on towards spiritual maturity but also to just walk everyday life together.  

We will be offering classes several days and times, some will be 1 hour classes and others up to 2 hours.
