Women in the Word: A Workshop serves the church by helping women study Scripture in a way that is informed, reasoned, and reverent - strengthening both those who teach and those who study on their own. In large group sessions and interactive study groups, this annual event focuses on women helping women interpret, apply, and present the Bible to others. The 2017 Workshop will be our 12th!
October 13 and 14, 2017 in Willow Grove, PA
- Four Large Group Sessions
- Five Hours of Intensive Study Groups
Who Should Come?
- Women interested in strengthening their personal Bible study skills
- Women who are teaching the Bible
About Study Groups:
Study Groups do just that: study a book of the Bible together! A Study Group consists of 6 participants and a leader. In guided, multi-session discussions, group members develop better skills for "rightly handling the word of truth." [2 Tim. 2:15]
Choose from two Study Group Tracks
- The Teacher Track
- The Personal Study Track
The Teacher Track is for those who lead or teach a Bible study, or plan to do so. At home you study your assigned passage and develop a condensed, 5-minute lesson for it. Specific steps to help you are in the Preparation ABC's. You will present that very short, abridged lesson to your group, after which the leader will guide a discussion of its content.
The Personal Study Track is for those who want to develop a more structrued approach to digging into the Bible. At home you study your assigned passage and complete a worksheet to summarize your exploration of it. Specific steps to help you are in the Preparation ABC's. You will present a 5-minute summary of that worksheet to your group, after which the leader will guide a discussion of its content.
Before the Workshop you will receive:
- Your Study Group placment
- Your assigned Scripture passage
- Preparation ABC's
- Help from your Study Group leader
Your preparation before the Workshop is specific to your Study Group and is essential to its effectiveness.
