Women in the Word:
How do you pray? Who is Jesus Christ? How is the bible relevant to my life? What can I do with this knowledge today? How can it help me deal with my worries and fears? Come and join us as we delve into the bible to answer these and many more questions. Whether you are seeking, hurting, or wanting to grow in your faith, this is a safe place to explore and find support. Our groups meet at the church September to May on Wednesday mornings at 9:15AM with childcare provided, or Monday evenings at 7PM. We also have other community groups that meet at homes around Tsawwassen and Ladner. Find what works best for you.
Our bible studies have already kicked off for the season, but you are still free to join us. Study options are listed below.

Wednesday morning bible study options:
1. What Love Is: The Letters of 1, 2, 3 John by Kelly Minter:
"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us" (1 John 3:16). The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John define love in the person of Jesus and call us to love like He loved. John anchors us with truth in a culture that has lost its way. He separates light from darkness, offers community for loneliness and rest for our striving. Throughout his letters, John gives us the ultimate gift of assurance: we can know that we know Jesus.
Join Kelly Minter in this theologically rich study - that also includes recipes for deeper fellowship - and discover what love truly is. Study includes DVDs and studies with homework on alternate weeks and will run until Christmas.
2. Precepts Philippians: How to Have Joy by Kay Arthur:
Join us as we explore the joy-filled Christian life together. Consider: How do I live the Christian life joyfully regardless of people or circumstances? What is the purpose of suffering and the Christian perspective on death? Do I have the mind of Christ? Discover deep-down joy in your life, that the world cannot take away. This study includes a DVD and daily homework.
3. ELL bible study:
This study is especially for those who want to learn more about the bible while also having the opportunity to increase their English vocabulary and language skills. We will start in the Old Testament, looking at the creation story and the beginning of the nation of Israel and continue into the New Testament, looking at the life of Jesus through the eyes of Luke. We will also focus on the lives of a number of the women featured in the Old and New Testament, and learn from their lives as they walked with God.
Cost: to be determined
4. 40 Minute Precepts: Loving God and Others: The Heart of True Faith by Kay Arthur:
What does God really want from you? It's easy to get confused about how to please God. One bible teacher details a long list of the commands you should be keeping. The next teacher says only grace matters. Who is right? Jesus simplified all the rules and regulations of the law into two great commands: love God and love people. Discover how obeying Jesus's simple commands will transform not only your life but also the lives of those around you. This is a 6-week, no homework study.
Monday evening bible study:
Nehemiah: A Heart That Can Break:
Nehemiah's heart broke so deeply for the suffering Jews that he left the comfort of his Persian palace to restore their desolate community. Through seven 20 minute video sessions with Kelly Minter, real life interviews, and in-depth, relational study, Nehemiah will inspire you to listen to what God has put in your heart to do. Let God break your heart for the hurting, because He often used a breaking heart to restore the broken.
