New women’s Bible studies begin September 6 and 7, 2017.  Register now!

Registration is now open to women who regularly attend Reston Bible Church. Most classes have a size limit, so register early for best selection. Starting September 1, women who attend another church and want to join one of our bible studies are invited to register for remaining spaces in classes and childcare.

Childcare is offered during Thursday morning classes for children 4 months and older.  Infants 3 months and younger may attend class with you. There are LIMITED SPOTS in childcare, so please register early. Cost for the Fall semester is $60 for one child, $84 for two children, and $96 for three or more children. If you need to withdraw during the semester, notify the childcare coordinator and you can receive a refund for future weeks.

The fee listed with each class covers the cost and shipping for the class materials you will receive at the first class meeting.

If childcare or class costs are a financial hardship, please contact Marsha Mathews at marshamathews@restonbible.org.

If the form displays “This form is currently unavailable,” then the class might be full.  To be put on the wait list, email Sue Ilari (sueilari@restonbible.org) with your name, email, phone and the class name.

In this study of the Letter of 2 Corinthians, you’ll explore the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and embracing the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.

What Love Is by Kelly MinterWednesday Evening

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

September 6 to December 6

$14.50

Class time will include video teaching and group discussion.

The letters of 1, 2, and 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus.

This study is now full.

$14.00

Class time will include video teaching, leader teaching, and some group discussion.

What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this Bible study, we’ll see that interruption is actually God’s invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.

Hungry: Learning to Feed Our Soul with Christ by Rondi LauterbachThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

September 7 to December 7

$10.00

Class time will include leader led group discussion.

Hunger: it drives our bodies, shapes our day, and affects our choices. We are all too familiar with our physical hunger and the guilt it often inspires. But God designed us to hunger—our hunger is good! It shows we are meant to depend on something outside ourselves for satisfaction. But what about the hunger we feel in our souls? While also from God, our spiritual hunger is corrupted—leaving us binging on “junk food” like our idols and cravings. Where do we find true satisfaction for our hungry souls? It comes when our souls feast on the Word of God—and on Jesus himself. Learn how to consume the Bible instead of just reading it—and then how to share this meal with the hungry around you.

Proven: Where Christ’s Abundance Meets our Great Need by Jennie AllenThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

September 7 to December 7

$14.00

Class time will include video teaching and group discussion.

Too many of us walk through life feeling like we don’t measure up—that if we could only work harder or perform better, we would be enough. But the truth is we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don’t have to be. In this study, we’ll explore key passages in the Book of John and see that Jesus is enough. We’ll realize we don’t have to prove anything because Jesus has proven everything. We’ll discover how our hungry hearts and thirsty souls can only be filled by the One who says, “If anyone is thirsty he should come to me and drink.”

Woman is an amazing creature. She is creative, resourceful, encouraging, loving, life giving, and glorious. Surprisingly however, women often experience something quite different – depression, insecurity, self-doubt, deep disappointment and a lingering sense of inadequacy.  She cries out, “Who can help me make sense of my world?” God longs to answer this question. He longs for her to live fully alive and from the feminine heart He designed to restore peace, love and glory to this broken world. Biblical Womanhood begins with God’s original design and progresses through Scripture to bring womanhood into complete focus. You will discover your true self and your true purpose and your true glory.  Come join the fun of sharing with other like-minded women, and watching 30+ video clips exemplifying God’s design being lived out contemporary culture.

1 Peter: A Living Hope in Christ by Jen WilkenThursday Morning

9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

September 7 to December 7

$14.00

Class time will include video teaching and group discussion.

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. In 1 Peter, a man of faith and flaws and eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concern for the early church, describes believers’ true identity in Christ, and ultimately helps readers discover what it means to experience the Living Hope they have in Christ. Key themes of humility, submission, and identity in Christ guide this verse by verse study of 1 Peter.

We will be offering two sections of this study led by:
Priscilla McSweeney, priscilla.mcsweeney@gmail.com
Kate Grefenstette, kpgref@gmail.com

Email Sue Ilari at sueilari@restonbible.org if you have a special request for group placement.

Cindy Kewley, ckewley@gmail.com

Precept Upon Precept® Bible Studies take about 45 minutes to an hour of daily personal study. Every lesson is discussed in class and then a teaching video is watched after the discussion.

This book takes us from the time of the Judges in Israel’s history to the time of their kings, into the life of Samuel as the last judge of Israel, into King David’s early life and his conflict with Saul, Israel’s first king.  This book of contrasts sets before us the importance of a life of obedience and tells how to live in the midst of interpersonal conflicts.

In-depth study of God’s Word with other women of faith is so rewarding. Please come join us!

$10.75

Kate Reen, kate@reen.us

Class time will include leader led group discussion.

The MacArthur Bible Studies incorporate extensive commentary, detailed observations on overriding themes, and probing questions to help you study the Word of God.

Colossians focuses on the deity and preeminence of Christ, in response to false teaching that Jesus Christ was not actually God, a belief prevalent in our current culture. We’ll explore the reality of who Christ is and what it means for us as believers. In Philemon, a book written to the owner of a runaway slave, we’ll consider the call for forgiveness and restoration.
