Women’s Bible Study

Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you; your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.
Isaiah 26:8

The Women’s Bible Study group at First Baptist Church began in the summer of 1998 with six ladies. Since that first meeting, we have offered 145 Bible studies. We have also read 61 books over the last seventeen years in our summer reading club. During the last twenty years, more than 300 women have participated in at least one of our studies or reading clubs. We hope that you will plan to join us this year!

Taste and See
Discovering God Among Butchers Bakers and Fresh Food Makers
by Margaret Feinberg

This groundbreaking book provides a culinary exploration of Scripture. You’ll descend 400 feet below ground into the frosty white caverns of a salt mine, fish on the Sea of Galilee, bake fresh matzo at Yale University, ferry to a remote island in Croatia to harvest olives, spend time with a Texas butcher known as “the meat apostle,” and wander a California farm with one of the world’s premier fig farmers.

With each visit, Margaret asks, “How do you read these Scriptures, not as theologians, but in light of what you do every day?” Their answers will forever change the way you read the Bible – and approach every meal. Taste and See is a delicious read that includes dozens of recipes for those who, like Margaret, believe some of life’s richest moments are spent savoring a meal with those you love.
Cost:  $20 (Book and Workbook)

10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing) By Jen Wilkin

But popular blogger Wilkin reminds us that our Creator possesses many attributes we don’t—and that’s a good thing! Take a closer look at the God who is infinitely knowable, creative, able to provide, timeless, unchanging, powerful, wonderful, and more.

You pray, attend church, and read your Bible – but are you following God or trying to catch up with him? The distinction is subtle, but it makes a big difference! Drawing from Scripture and her own experience, Smith explains how to exchange rules, requirements, and misplaced guilt for spiritual freedom and authentic progress.

Let It Go

How to Stop Running the Show and Start Walking by Faith
By Karen Ehman
