True Woman 101: Divine Design
A Study on Biblical Womanhood

Join Angela Field and Colleen Mataya for the Fall True Woman 101 Study. Together, we'll answer the question, "What does it mean to be a woman?"

The current cultural ideal for womanhood encourages women to be strident, sexual, self-centered, independent - and above all - powerful and in control. But sadly, this model of womanhood hasn't delivered the happiness and fulfillment it promised. The Bible teaches that it's not up to us to decide what womanhood is all about. God created male and female for a very specific purpose. His design is intentional and together we will to discover, embrace, and delight in the beauty of His design.
This 9-week study is written by Bible teachers Mary A. Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Each week includes five daily individual lessons leading to a group time of sharing and digging deeper into God's Word during each class.

1 Corinthians Women's Bible Study

Join Patty Zowada for a women's Bible study of the book of 1 Corinthians, an important study on the wisdom of the Gospel to encourage women in several key areas.
