Three new Fall Women’s Bible Studies (one nighttime and two daytime) will begin in September at Central Baptist Church, 3333 Dave Ward Dr., according to Maggie Chandler, Women’s Ministry Director and wife of Pastor Don Chandler.
She will once again teach the Bible study that meets on Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the upstairs Youth Area. This will be a study of the book of Job: "Journey to the Soul" (a 10-week course on the spiritual journey of the believer), and outline/notes will be provided at no cost. The verse-by-verse study starts Sept. 11 and ends Nov. 13. This is a large group setting with a friendly, small-group feeling. "Going through the book of Job is like having 10 weeks of free therapy," Chandler said. "And when you get to the surprising ending, say hello to your soul!," said Maggie, a writer and speaker, has been a Bible teacher since the age of 12.
Shelly Chandler will continue to teach a survey of the Bible on Mondays from 10 to 11:30 a.m., in Room 1407. The sessions are patterned after Dr. Henrietta Mears’ book, "What the Bible is All About." Shelly’s Fall Session begins on Sept. 10 and runs through Nov. 15, and she will pick up where they stopped in the spring (at the beginning of the poetic books). This class will especially benefit women who enjoy a smaller-group setting and a back-to-the-basics approach to Bible study.
Precept Ministries is offering the study of Revelation from Sept. 6 to Nov. 15. The class will meet on Thursdays from 9 to 11 a.m., also in Room 1407. Workbooks are available for purchase, according to Diana Boone, who has more than 10 years of experience as a Precept leader. This class is designed for women who want to dig deep into the Word and are willing to devote their time to the study.
The annual spring Beth Moore Bible Study, which meets on Tuesday nights, will once again be led by Lori Kulbeth. Featuring video, workbooks, and small groups, the Beth Moore class usually begins in early February. More details and the topic will be available on the church website later in the year.
The public is invited to join one or more of these classes, and childcare will be provided for all the studies. Further information is available online at www.conwaycentralchurch.org. To register, contact Maggie Chandler at the church, 329-9283.
