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!
2018 Winter Studies
// RESUMES MARCH 15 // Tuesday evening: 7 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. Facilitated by Denise Roberts. Meets in room 2209/2212. This group will be studying 1 Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree by Melissa Spoelestra. Begins March 20, cost $15. 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.
// RESUMES IN MARCH // Tuesday morning: 10 a.m. - noon and then join together for lunch after if you can! Facilitated by Katherine Amick. Meets in Room 2204/2205.

// BEGINS MARCH 7 // 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 The Promised One by Nancy Guthrie. After the resurrection, when Jesus used Scripture to explain who he was and why he came, where did he start? In the Old Testament. And this is where The Promised One begins to look for Christ, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the Old Testament scriptures. Gain a fresh perspective on the book of Genesis, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more, when you join with Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament!
// BEGINS MARCH 28 // 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 Friends of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury. Begins March 28, cost $15. In our everyday lives, friends are the people whom we spend the most time with, go through struggles with, and who know us best. Each of Jesus’ friends—Peter, John, Matthew, Judas, Mary Magdalene, and Lazarus—traveled with Jesus and were part of His daily ministry, and each has a compelling story to tell. There were some who would question or doubt Him…and one would even betray Him. Kingsbury brings these fascinating personalities to life in ways that will not only help bring you closer to the truths found in Scripture, but also to Christ.
// BEGINS MARCH 1 // Thursday afternoon: 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Facilitated by Anna Chapman and Donna DeYoung. Meets in room 2203. This group will be studying Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin. Begins March 1, cost $15. What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew's gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus' longest recorded message – a sermon given to His disciples early in His ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ-follower would look like.
// BEGINS MARCH 4 // Sunday evening: 5 - 7 p.m. Facilitated by Patricia Dahlman. Meets in room 2210/2211. This is a brand-new study offering. To kick things off this group will be exploring Quest by Beth Moore, as they endeavor to develop closer intimacy with the Lord. Begins March 4, cost $20. Curiosity is hardwired in humanity. We have this innate need to question and seek after what we don’t know or understand. In this 6-session Bible study, delve into Scripture to explore how God created us to seek after Him—a God who desires to be found and known. In this lifelong quest of faith, learn to develop your intimacy with Him and embrace the adventure that comes with living a life for God.
Looking forward to having you come and be a part of the Wellspring small group studies this Spring!
