Seeking Fellowship

I am very excited to have had my first women's Bible study at our church. Up until now, my husband and I haven't been very involved with the church community, partially because of our school/work schedules. It's been hard to make friends as a result.

I'm so glad to be starting a Bible study. It currently meets Wednesday nights at 7 at the house of the woman hosting it. Last night I got to meet lots of great women--some single, some married, some older, some younger, most with full-time careers. I'm ecstatic to meet so many encouraging women, who all love the Lord.

Most importantly, it gives me the chance to delve deeper into God's Word. We are doing a study on the book of Acts. I can't wait to dig deeper and learn more about the character of God and the history of the early church.

Pray that God will teach me to more closely follow His ways in the next few months. Pray that I can overcome my nervousness to get to know all these women, all of which I just met last night. Pray that I can find encouragement, and that I will be an encouragement to them.

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing." 1 Thessalonians 5:11

    I started going to the Women's Bible Study at my church last spring, and it has been such an encouragement to me! I've gotten to meet a lot of the women at my church and get to know them better, and I've learned a lot. I hope you have a good experience with your study :).

    That is so neat, Beth! I just started BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) this past Monday evening. This year we will cover the entire book of Romans. I am super excited about the study. Romans seems like the perfect book for me to be studying now in my Christian walk. I also enjoy meeting other Christian women of all ages. One of my favorite things about BSF is that the study is very focused and geared toward real study, not just an excuse for a social gathering. There are reading assignments each week and study questions to answer. I learned so much last year from Genesis.

    I will be praying for you as you study Acts. Pray for me too, that God would have me learn what he wants to teach me through Romans.

    I forgot to mentioned what I'm studying this fall. We're going through Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon :-D. Should be a very interesting study. My church likes to study "the whole counsel of scripture," so we're alternating spring/fall with OT and NT. This spring was I and II Peter, and it was very good!

    Hey I was thinking about posting on this same topic! :-) They have just started a weekly Bible study at my church - it's the first time they've done one. We're going through a book called "Seeking Him" (I think!). So far, it's only women and Paul so I hope a few men join. I feel weird about attending a co-ed Bible study led by a woman.
