Session 1 of Bible Studies will run Oct. 2 through Dec. 11. Other study options will be offered in the new year. See the current class options and descriptions below, and register today!

  • Class Leader: Amy Fuhrman
  • Location: Worship Center break-out room
  • 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 is for you. The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.

  • Class Leader: Marleen Wiersum
  • Location: Upper Room
  • Study the story of Joseph and see how we fit into the greater story of God. Jennie Allen explores the important question: “Do I matter?” And she asks, “We live with lots of things, lots of people, but do we live for something?” It is possible to waste our lives. We don’t want to live life feeling empty, numb, or bored. So God stirs a restlessness in our being that won’t go away. Using the story of Joseph, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, story, and relationships fit into the greater story of God—and how your story can do the same. She also introduces Threads—a tool to help you see your own personal story and to uncover and understand the raw materials God has given you to use for His glory and purpose.

    The focus of chapters four through twenty-two is the end times. Through careful observation of the text, discover what God says will take place. This study will continue throughout the ministry year. If you are interested in joining this group, please email womensministry@nlcwoodbury.org.

    Mentoring – Women Shepherding Women

    Could you benefit from godly counsel and encouragement? Would you love to have the opportunity for one-on-one sharing, biblical support and prayer? Do you need the wisdom of a more seasoned Christian woman, perhaps for guidance as a wife or mother, or in a time of great testing such as cancer therapy? Meet one-on-one with a woman of Christian maturity as a mentor for guidance and encouragement as you work through a study chosen specifically for you. Meeting times are scheduled when convenient for you and your mentor. For more information, email women’s leadership team.
