encouraging and equipping women to walk biblically, authentically, and relationally with Christ and with others for the glory of God

TOGETHER—the Women’s Ministry of SWBIBLE—offers valuable opportunities for us to connect with women of all ages and backgrounds. Together, we encourage each other to grow through shared study of God’s Word, friendship, service, fellowship and fun.

Come join us for as many of these opportunities as you can. You will be encouraged!

Evening Ladies Bible Study

Paul’s letter to the church at Colossae encourages believers to live out the reality of a life in Christ – He is God, He is supreme, and He is sufficient. We have been buried with Him and raised to life with Him as new creations, knit together in love. Our hope is that God would use this Bible study to grow your love for Jesus and strengthen your faith as you live for Him.

September 18 - November 6, 2018
Tuesdays, 7-8:30 pm

Cost: $15 ($10 late fee after September 9)

Senior Ladies Bible Study


2nd & 4th Wednesdays at 1:00 pm 

We will be kicking off our 2018-19 study with a potluck lunch on Wednesday, September 12, 11:30 am in the Coffee Corner.

Every time we open God's Word we can learn something new! The more we read and study, the more we realize the treasures to be found are limitless! That's why we eagerly study—digging in to God's Word and sharing with each other. If you are a senior lady—looking for the comaraderie of a small group—you are welcome to join us!
