The Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study welcomes women of all ages. We follow the school schedule and do not meet during vacation or on snow days. We recently are trying to meet on Thursday if a snow day is called on Wed.


Typically, we use a study guide such as the Lifeguide series. Part of our time is spent on the study, with time set aside for prayer requests. We stress women attend the study whether homework is completed or not as her presence is important to us.


Babysitting is available. If there are a lot of children, mom's take turns helping out in the nursery. Our babysitter is paid through free will offerings from all members of the group.
