A Study of 1 and 2 Samuel: Chosen by God
Lessons from the Lives of David, Saul, and Samuel
CWBS is a small group women’s Bible study open to all ladies in the community who desire an in-depth study of God’s word. If you are looking for a welcoming, affirming place to dig into the Word with other women who desire a deeper relationship with God, we invite you to join us. CWBS offers a wonderful combination of accountability, support, and fellowship.
This year we are going back to the Old Testament to study the life of David, along with Samuel and Saul, through the books of I and II Samuel. Each of these men was uniquely chosen by God. Chosen to play an important role in God’s study of redeeming His chosen people. Most of our study will center around the life of David, described in the Bible as a man after God’s own heart. High praise for a man whose heart struggled with doubt, fear, selfishness, sexual purity, and even premeditated murder. What lessons can we learn from David’s relationship with God? What hope does His story give us for finding forgiveness and redemption?
Meeting Times & Registration
Small groups meet weekly on Thursday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00. Childcare is provided during all of our CWBS studies and luncheons. Please pre-register for childcare when you sign up for CWBS.
