2018 Spring Studies

2018 Spring Women's Studies

Our heart is for the women @chapelhillbible to deepen their love for God and each other as we grow stronger in our knowledge of his Word. We know that sometimes studying the bible can seem daunting and hard, but it is life - the very Word of God given to us, so we want to be a group of women committed to studying the scriptures together and allowing it to teach, correct, train and equip us as Godly women. 


We have a few different times and structures for you to plug into a bible study. At each of these studies you will hear teaching from gifted and Godly women and encounter friendship around the word of God. Below you will find a short description and a link to register.


NOTE: If you registered for one other studies below in the Fall, there's no need to re-register for the Spring studies.

The Well

tuesday mornings & evenings, starting January 16, 9:30 am & 7:00 pm (childcare waiting list)

  • STUDY: Ruth & Hebrews
  • Tuesday mornings: 9:30-11:30 am (childcare waiting list)
  • Tuesday evenings: 7-8:30 pm (childcare waiting list)
  • Registration fee: $42 (scholarships available)

FORMAT: The Well's format is to gather for large group teaching time, followed by small group discussion time to process through the passage for the week. An important part of these small groups is also supporting growth through prayer for one another. 


After our exploration of Judges this fall, we will turn in January to an inductive, verse-by-verse study of Ruth. This book, while concurrent with Judges, is refreshing in its hopefulness. It provides a close look at God’s faithfulness to two women, Naomi and Ruth, and to His promise: that He will provide the true Judge who is Savior of the world.


For the remainder of the spring semester, we will study Hebrews. This New Testament epistle speaks directly to the Jewish people, and will enlighten our understanding of Jesus as fulfilment of the old covenant and establisher of the new. We will be using Jen Wilkin's study guide of Hebrews for personal study and small group discussion.


After immersion in two books of the Old Testament, this study will remind us of the superiority of Christ over all things and His absolute sufficiency for salvation. 

Discovery

  • STUDY: Acts - The New Beginning
  • Thursday mornings: 9:30-11:30 am (childcare provided)

Women studying God’s Word together, growing in knowledge and experience of God, encouraging one another. Join us for our 29th year of teaching of Scripture, worship, small group discussion and prayer.

Pursuing God (Mark)

Tuesday evenings, starting september 19, 7:00 pm

  • STUDY: The Gospel of Mark
  • Tuesday evenings: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
  • Registration fee: FREE, but participants will be responsible for purchasing their own workbook ($2.50)
  • FORMAT: The format for the study will be primarily reading the Scriptures and discussing the questions from the study guide. Occasionally, we will watch videos and sermons pertaining to the current topic. 


The Gospel of Mark divides into two parts. The first part answers the question: Who is Jesus? It climaxes with Peter’s confession in Chapter 8:27-30. The second half answers the question: What did he come to do? It climaxes with Jesus’ death and resurrection.


This study is for nonbelievers as well as Christians. For an explanation of the study, please see this short video by Tim Keller. 

Pursuing God (1 & 2 Thessalonians)

wednesday evenings, starting september 20, 7:00 pm

  • STUDY: 1 & 2 Thessalonians, Children of the Day
  • Wednesday evenings: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
  • Registration fee: FREE, but participants will be responsible for purchasing their own workbook ($17)
  • FORMAT: You’ll have two weeks to do each “week” of 5 lessons. We’ll watch Beth Moore’s video session the first class and review and discuss the homework for that session the following week. The study has nine video sessions, meaning we will meet for a total of 18 Wednesdays.


Join Beth Moore and walk the shores of Thessalonica with this verse-by-verse Bible study of 1 and 2 Thessalonians. You’ll learn how to let go of past mistakes and discover your circumstances are not coincidental - God's timing is impeccable! Whether you’re facing family crises, medical diagnoses, relationship troubles, doubts, or fears, you’ll come away encouraged that even though it may not feel that way, you are exactly where Christ wants you to be!
