Our Mission

Women’s Bible Studies provide a place for women to belong, to feel accepted, and focus on what is important--their walk with God. These small groups grow together in God’s Word, encouraging and supporting one another along the way.

 

We Serve

Due to the content of some studies, all women, age 18 and over can participate in Women's Bible study.

 

We Meet

Bible studies are usually held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in the fall, winter, and spring. We have evening classes and morning classes available to fit all schedules.

Are you ready to make some changes? Our lively group is focused on not only how to feed your body, but also feeding your soul. First Place 4 Health at its core centers around mind, body, spirit and emotions. We weigh in on a weekly basis, but quickly realize we are not defined by the number on the scale. The Bible studies are designed to look at the scripture from a practical standpoint and you soon discover there are many perspectives to some scriptures you’ve been studying for years. Our ultimate goal is to glorify God by caring for our bodies


Fresh Start!

A Jewel in His Crown

Wednesday Evenings | 6:45 - 8 p.m.
Location: Room B234
Cost: $25
Childcare: Provided

Women are becoming increasingly weary and discouraged and are thus losing sight of their real value as daughters of the King. A Jewel In His Crown examines how a woman’s view of her worth deeply affects her relationships. During this Priscilla Shirer study, you will be rediscovering your value as a woman of excellence by spending time in creative and soul searching exercises, which will be different each week. This is not your typical “fill-in-the-blank” Bible study.

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you - unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study by Priscilla Shirer is for you
