The Wellspring believes that real growth in our relationship with Jesus happens when we share life with one another. Paul said as much when he wrote "We loved you so much that we were delighted to share not only the gospel of God with you but our lives as well." (1 Thes 2:8)
Our Ladies Small Group Bible studies are where life happens. We have groups that meet on Tuesday morning, Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Wednesday evening, and Thursday afternoon. Some do homework intensive studies, others do not. Some are more geared for certain life seasons, most are not. All of our groups are open for ladies to join at any time - you do not need to wait for a new study to begin! We encourage you to find the one that best fits your schedule. We know that you will love any of the groups you participate in so joining one that sets you up for success in attending is most important!

// BEGINS JAN 17 // Wednesday Morning: 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Facilitated by Erin Slykhouse. This group primarily ministers to moms and caregivers of young children. Child care is available with reservation. Meets in room 2203. This group is studying Living Life Together by Shauna Niequist. Do you stay busy to avoid deep connections? Do you resist community for fear of being judged? Do you need to reconcile a relationship? There are messy parts in all of our lives that we would rather not reveal—like strained relationships, sinking finances, and cluttered living rooms. We keep the doors of our hearts and homes closed for fear of being exposed. But what if we invited others in and experienced the beautiful acceptance and deep connection of Christian community? Click here for more information on this series. You'll need a study guide and are welcome to jump right in.
// BEGINS JAN 17 // Wednesday Morning: 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Facilitated by Cynthia Lyerly. This group also enjoys going out to lunch after! Meets in room 2203/2208. This group is participating in Jesus is Better: A Disciple Making Study of Hebrews. You'll be able to walk through the book of Hebrews as it points out how Jesus is better than angels, than Moses, than the Old Testament high priest, than the Old Covenant sacrifices—better than anything!
// BEGINS JAN 17 // Wednesday Evening: 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m. Facilitated by Debbi Herzig and Sandy Hubeli. Meets in room 2203/2208. This group will be participating in The Family of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury. This Bible study takes a look at the lives of Joseph, the protective step-father; Zechariah, the knowing uncle; John the Baptist, the chosen cousin; Elizabeth, the faithful aunt; James, the doubting brother; and Mary, the loving mother. Through Scripture and storytelling this study digs deeper into the lives, the customs, the emotions, and the challenges of being a part of the family of Jesus during His crucial time on earth as God's Son. Each person has a strength and a struggle, all of which is culturally relevant to our lives today. COST IS $15.
// BEGINS JAN 11 // Thursday afternoon: 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Facilitated by Anna Chapman and Donna DeYoung. Meets in room 2203. This group will be studying 1 Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree by Melissa Spoelstra. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today; yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. In this six-week First Corinthians study, we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions - whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day. COST IS $15.
Looking forward to having you come and be a part of the Wellspring small group studies this coming winter!
