Fall Bible Studies

At the heart of 1st Pres Women’s Bible Studies is the desire that we abide in Jesus, study God’s Word together, grow in our knowledge of God, bear fruit, bring glory to God, be blessed, and live in such a way as to show a lost world the beauty and truth of God's Word and His ways. Fall Bible Studies start on September 12, except Bonded in Fellowship which starts September 19.
Sign up for a bible study and for childcare at the link below!

Women of the Covenant

Teaching & group discussion Tuesdays 9:30 - 11:30 am

Study: All Things New: 1 & 2 Kings: What A Royal Mess by Susan Tyner

In What A Royal Mess we examine Bible history’s “black hole” that swirls around the split of Israel and Judah. God’s people, all of us included, seem to have a knack for getting in messes—in our families, in our workplace, in our churches. The books of 1 & 2 Kings remind us how God works despite His kings’ messes and that sin cannot derail His plan of redemption.

Let’s Have Lunch!

Verse by verse teaching & group discussion Tuesdays 11:45am – 1:00pm

Study: The Bible, Philippians

Let’s have lunch is a laid back, weekly study designed to encourage and equip you in your walk with the Lord. Bring your lunch and desire to learn as we gather around the table eat, learn, fellowship, and encourage one other. We will dive into the book of Philippians going verse by verse in our Bibles.


Teaching & group discussion 2nd & 4th Tuesdays 9:45am – 11:30am

Study: Hebrews: Standing Firm in Christ by Jon Nielson & Richard D. Phillips

The book of Hebrews highlights the supremacy of Christ. It contains the most concentrated doctrine of Christ in the New Testament, yet it was written to encourage and exhort Christians to remain faithful to their Lord, regardless of the cost. This study helps us apply biblical truth to our daily life.

Teaching & group discussion 2nd & 4th Tuesdays 5:30 – 6:30pm small group study; 6:30 – 6:45 large group fellowship

Study: Ruth: The Lord Provides by Tony Merida

Ruth is one of the best short stories ever written. The plot is a story of redemption which is part of God’s grand story of redemption. And at the heart of the resolution is Boaz, a figure who points to Jesus.
