2019-2020 Ladies Bible Study Season
God of Covenant A Study of Genesis 12-50 Author: Jen Wilkin
What/When/Where: The Ladies Bible Study will be the first Saturday of each month, September 2018 through May 2019, from 9:30 to 11:30 in the fellowship hall. We will be studying Genesis 12-50 using Jen Wilkin’s “God of Covenant” Study Guide.
How it Works: Jen Wilkin’s books are organized by “Week,” but one “Week” in her book is what we study in one Month. Except for our first meeting in September*, each month you will have homework to do prior to our meeting. So for October (see schedule below), you will work your way through “Week 3” in your books, trying to spend some time looking up the verses and answering the homework questions. When you arrive for the Bible Study in October, we will begin by watching Jen Wilkin’s teaching video – usually around 40 minutes – and then we will spend our remaining time discussing selected portions of our “Week 3” homework and the related Bible passages.
*For September only, since you will not have done any “homework” yet, we have to do things backwards: I will cover some introductory material and we will work our way through selected portions of the “Week 2” homework in the workbooks, discussing along the way, and end with the Week 2 video. We have to start somewhere!
