Women’s Ministry is a very broad term.
We know as unique as we are as women, so are our needs. Living in today’s secular society poses many challenges to our ways of thinking, responding and reaching out to others. Bethany’s Women’s Ministry, under the name In Touch, represents the challenge to keep us in tune with God, with one another and with what is going on in our own lives. Am I accurately representing in my day to day living, the life of Christ? Do I respond with grace and God’s character in my own home and in life’s situations? When I miss the mark of God’s calling, do I reach out and up for God’s grace and do I show it to others when they fail?
In a world that teaches us as women to be blatant consumers, to have selfish ambition and a code of morality reflected in the television and on-line programs we watch, how can we be successful women of character and Christian morality? As I read what I have just written, I hear that inner voice saying, “You are so behind the times! What a prude!” To even mention the name of Jesus or say that one is a Christian invokes the wrath of today’s “acceptable behavior police”. But as women who want to know and who know Christ as our savior, we can trust God to empower us to be bold witnesses in these “politically correct times”.
Through sound Bible studies, refreshing events and conferences, we as women, with all our differences and flaws, can be the voice of reason and givers of God’s peace to a hurting world. As we become grounded in God’s Word, thirsty for more of Christ’s reality in our everyday lives, we are becoming women of influence, for His purposes. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14

Ladies In-Touch Bible Study: “The Quest” – by Beth Moore.
A New Bible Study from Best-Selling Author Beth Moore
There Is No Quest Without Questions
The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest, and perhaps doubt. A question is an invitation to vulnerability, to intimacy. The Bible does not shy away from such an invite. Over and over we see the people of God asking questions of their Creator. We also see the God of the universe asking questions of His creation.
The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation. In this six-week excursion with Jesus, Beth Moore uses questions from Scripture to lead you into intimacy with the One who knows you best. Learn to dig into the Word, to respond to the questions of God, and to bring your questions before Him. Let the crooked punctuation mark be the map that points you into a closer relationship with the Father.
- Learn to pray to promote intimacy with God.
- Explore questions and responses from the Bible.
- Track your quest by journaling along the way.
- Learn to read and respond to Scripture.
