Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study

Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study

Please join our Wednesday Morning Women's Bible Study at First United Methodist Church as we begin our fall class on Wednesday, September 11. We will be reading Fire by Night: Finding God in the Pages of the Old Testament by Melissa Florer-Bixler this fall.

What do we do with the Old Testament? How do we read words written in a world so different from ours, stories so ruthless and so filled with grace? In Fire by Night, pastor Melissa Florer-Bixler invites readers to marvel at the Old Testament. Page after page, in stories and poems and prophecies, the Hebrew Scripture introduces us to a God who is unwieldy and uncontrollable, common and extraordinary, and who brings both life and death.

The group meets at 9:00 a.m. every Wednesday in room 213 and is facilitated by Pastor Anna, Maggie Roth, and Leah Ostwald. Books are available in the office and at the meeting. Can't make it every week? Drop-ins are welcome. All women are encouraged to attend this dynamic group. Nothing required… just show up and have an open heart. Questions? email

**Childcare is provided, but please contact the church office to confirm number of children you will bring. We want lots of moms to come and have the freedom to study with us. We want the children to come and receive the best attention while away from the adult in their life. Please call the church prior to Wednesday to confirm.
