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. 

Registration for the winter/spring semester will be available beginning December 7. Questions? Contact Christine Walraven, cwalraven@wheatonbible.org. 630.876.6653.

Restoration Heartware, a study of the book of Nehemiah

Get below the surface, and the book of Nehemiah is about restoration of the heart. And as we watch Nehemiah direct his construction crew in a monumental project—completing his work with wisdom, integrity, focus, and faithful devotion to God—we'll see a picture of the Master Restorer Himself, Jesus Christ, at work restoring hearts from the inside out.

*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.

II Corinthians: Ministers of Reconciliation, by Kay Arthur 

Second Corinthians is a book about various kinds of ministry—including the ministry of reconciliation. Sometimes as Christians we feel burdened beyond our strength, despairing of life, filled with internal fears, and facing outward conflicts. This book tells us how to cope with these things—especially in the midst of accusations and persecution—remaining strong in the Lord and gaining confidence in Him.
