Women's Bible Study Tuesday Morning Bible Study
Women crave connections. We want to relate to people in deep, authentic, personal ways. We also desire to grow closer to God. Tuesday Morning Bible Study is a place where those two desires can come together for the good of all and the good of the Kingdom. Originally called Growth Groups, this ministry began in 2001 with a handful of women who wanted to connect with each other and grow stronger in their faith. Today, it has grown to about 240 women of all ages and life stages. Our Tuesday Morning Bible Study consists of a large group gathering to hear the week's lesson, then small group breakouts to discuss, share insights, and support and encourage each other through life's journey.
