Women's Bible Studies

Women's Ministry offers you several Bible Study options throughout the year. Each is designed to help you learn more about God and grow in your understanding of His Word—and give you an opportunity to meet other women who are also on a faith journey. 

Most of our studies meet regularly from September through November, and then from January through May. While you are welcome to join at any time, we ask that you register for the study you plan to attend so we know you'll be joining us. 

Check back in August for more information and to register for any of the fall studies. Questions? Contact Christine Walraven, cwalraven@wheatonbible.org. 630.876.6653.

1 Peter, A Living Hope in Christ by Jen Wilkin.

Our inheritance through Christ is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading. Peter, a man of faith and flaws, and an eyewitness to the life of Christ challenges us to look beyond our current circumstances to a future inheritance. He shares his concern on big picture issues 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.

*Dinner donation: $5/week. Pre-payment option available in the registration form.

**Childcare cost: $5/week for 1-2 children, $8/week for 3 or more children.
Payment for one-half of the semester is required with registration to secure your childcare request and is nonrefundable. Scholarships available upon request.
