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?
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

STARTING OCTOBER 29th - Ladies Bible Study - The Faithful by Assorted Authors
Thousands of years after the men and women of the Old Testament walked the earth, we still can learn from their examples. We can learn to live in the reality of what is hoped for. We can learn to trust in the One who is faithful. Be encouraged as we study the lives of Gideon, Nehemiah, Esther, Hosea, and Malachi and see how they all demonstrated obedience and trust in the steadfastness of our God. This study begins on Tuesday, October 29th in both the morning and evening classes. *Workbooks are available by prepaid order only through Bethany’s Bookstore, LifeWay.com or Amazon.com and must be purchased on your own.
