Women’s Wednesday Bible Study (WWBS)

Wednesdays, September 6, 2017 - May 9, 2018 | 9:30-11:00 am, Room 201

Wednesday Women’s Bible Study (“WWBS”) will study the Book of Luke in 2017-18.

January Update!
On January 24, Normandale’s Wednesday Women’s Bible Study (WWBS) began a new series on Acts.  Acts is the second volume of the 2-volume work Luke-Acts being written by the same author.  We have recently completed the study of Luke and are going on to Acts, leaving the Gospel of John until Fall 2018.  A study guide for Acts along with a commentary on Acts are available for purchase.  Our new leader for Acts is Lindsey Bina, a graduate of Luther Seminary, waiting to be called and ordained.  We welcome any women who would like to join us for the study of Acts (meeting Jan. 24-May 2, 2018).  Our forum begins with a large group presentation of the specific chapters we have studied. We end our time together in small group discussions reflecting on those same passages. Come and see how a small Jewish movement centered in Jerusalem moved into a worldwide faith.  You are welcome to come and see what the faith of the first Christians looked like, what they believed and by what power the church was formed and grew.

Come, hear, learn, and have fun, with amazing women! Bring your Bible! Study Guides and Commentaries will be available.

New to Bible study or interested in additional resources?

Professor Craig Koester (Luther Seminary) has been teaching a course called Genesis to Revelation for years. Lay students and seminarians enjoy this chronological overview of scripture. His free audio podcasts highlight reoccurring themes, build connections between books and his passion is contagious. If you are new to bible study or this part of scripture, consider beginning here: http://www2.luthersem.edu/ckoester/gen_to_rev_audio.asp.

Luther Seminary has created a valuable online resource called Enter the Bible. This database is filled with searchable history, summaries and visuals that help you dive into scripture with deeper context and clarity. http://www.enterthebible.org.

You're invited! Circles are small groups that come together to deepen our connections with each other and share our lives more fully. We'd love to find a place for you! Current Circles have a Bible study, social, and optional service component and meet approximately once a month about 10 times per year. We love how Circles bring women together, create friendships, and strengthen our community.
