Women’s Bible Study

1 & 2 Thessalonians

Walking in Grateful Faith

1 & 2 Thessalonians are Paul’s encouraging and instructive letters to a beloved church. This fall we will study these letters together and discover how they encourage us to be thankful and teach us to walk in faith and obedience.

The Bible Study groups will be hosted in the homes of a few North Wake ladies and there will be both morning and evening options. The heart of this study is to have informal yet meaningful conversation about the passage each week. To help foster this, no homework will be required; rather the groups will read the chapter and discuss the same set of 10-12 questions each week.

Our desire is that these groups will deepen your faith and build wonderful friendships. Check out the information below and register today with the day that works best for you!
