Bible Studies

Winter 2023

Never read the Bible the same way again! Women’s Ministry at Immanuel invites you to experience the joy and transforming power of not just reading but digging deep – really studying God’s Word. It is God’s Word, His invitation to know Him and see life in and through His Son, Jesus Christ. When we study the Word, we find truth, help, and hope that motivates us to love God more. When we love Him, we obey Him. As we obey Him, our thinking, behavior, and attitudes are transformed! Whether you are new to Bible Study or not, come and be part of a group of women who set aside time each week to study God’s word, encourage, pray for, and support one another.

Immanuel offers women a variety of Bible study groups that meet during the week on the Immanuel campus and online. Morning and evening studies are available with childcare for most that meet at Immanuel. All classes begin the week of January 10 unless otherwise noted.

Won’t you choose to be part of a study this semester? Sign up now --- your group is waiting to welcome you!

Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
— COLOSSIANS 3:16-17

Morning Studies

Romans – In View of God’s MerciesWednesday mornings at Immanuel
The gospel doesn’t just change your eternal future; it changes your present reality.

In this 9-session study on the book of Romans, Courtney Doctor will walk you through Paul’s powerful letter to see the glorious grace and transforming work of the gospel. You’ll be overwhelmed with the good news of God’s merciful rescue as you better understand the depth of your need. This life-changing message provides not only hope for eternity, but purpose, joy, and peace for today. And as the good news of the gospel of grace unfolds through Romans, it will compel you to proclaim God’s glorious salvation to all.

Wednesday mornings at Immanuel & Online
Watch a "man after God's own heart" ascend to the throne, then descend into sin. See how a covenant-keeping God turns a man from despicable sins to a victorious finish. And we, as children of God, will reign with the Lord Jesus Christ, the King of kings, the Lord of lords. What lessons can we learn from the life of David that will prepare us for that grand and glorious day?

JohnWednesday mornings at Immanuel
The Gospel of John is unique among the four gospels in both its content and purpose. It is theologically rich, revealing Jesus in both his deity and humanity, while also providing a look into the mystery of the Trinity and the work of the Holy Spirit.

Using the Bible as our textbook, we will walk through John verse by verse, in inductive study and through a combination of weekly teaching and group discussion questions. Our goal is to help each woman to grasp the meaning and message of John while also honing personal Bible study skills. Week by week we will behold Jesus: the Word made flesh, the Shepherd, the Lamb, and the Great I Am.

Join us on Wednesday mornings in this yearlong study as we explore the person and work of Christ, and how we can experience life in his name.

Heather and Ashley Holleman have fully embraced their identities as sent through nearly two decades of full-time ministry.

1 Corinthians (in Spanish)Tuesday evenings at Immanuel
Are denominations biblical? For what sins can a person be excommunicated from church? Is it right for a believer to take another believer to court? What place is given to marriage in the New Testament?Should women wear head coverings in church gatherings? What is the gift of tongues? What will our resurrected bodies be like?

These are just some of the questions Paul addresses in his first letter to the Corinthians. And you’ll want to know the answers, not just for yourself, but to explain them to others as well.

This letter was originally written to answer certain questions that arose in the church in Corinth. But many of these issues persist among us, and will continue to do so until the end of the age. Therefore, the message of 1 Corinthians is both current and eternal, from start to finish.

Our Bible study on 1 Corinthians will be held every Tuesday from 7 to 9 pm in Room A209 during fall and spring. This class will be taught in Spanish. This Bible study itself is free, but the course book (1 Corintios by Emmaus) is available for purchase at the Bookstore.

For more information please contact Ana Ugalde at 703 888 6802 or Liz Zalles at 703 399 1407.

Begins January 17
