WINTER 2023 BIBLE STUDY

Amos: An Invitation to the Good Life

JOIN US THIS WINTER (JAN. 12 - MAR. 2)

FOR AN 8 WEEK STUDY OF THE BOOK OF AMOS

Amos is often called a prophet of doom. And when you begin to read his prophecy, it doesn’t take long to realize that nickname fits. On the surface, his prophecy doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a cry for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). You’ll be invited to live assured, faithful, chosen, humble, justly, prayerful, and hopeful. This kind of living will bring us and others around us peace and true prosperity.
Amos is promoting the God life, and, the God life is the good life!

 

Coffee and treats will be served every Thursday.

What is Women's Life?

Each Thursday morning, we start Women’s Life with a time of coffee, a sweet treat and wonderful fellowship. This is a time to connect with all the women in the study, develop new friendships and reconnect with old friends. A large group study follows where we open the Bible, learn God’s truth for our lives, and come to know Jesus more intimately as a result. We alternate between live lectures and video series by nationally recognized Bible teachers for women. All the teaching in Women’s Life is Biblically based and doctrinally sound. Small group time provides an opportunity for women to share, discuss the Bible teaching, ask questions and connect in a more relational setting. 


Women’s Life is for all women from all faiths and backgrounds. It's a Bible study for any woman who is interested in learning more about God and having a personal relationship with His son, Jesus, from the Bible. 


If you have never participated in a Bible study before, Women’s Life is for you! We will help you feel welcomed and loved without being overwhelmed.  And ... if you’ve been in Bible study for most of your life, this is for you, too! We just want all women to come, learn and grow in their faith in God.

What do Women say about Women's Life?

Jen says:

"In August 2019, my family and I embarked on a huge adventure, moving from our beloved home country at the southern tip of Africa, to Illinois. I knew that I needed to integrate myself into our new community as soon as possible. Our first local Hinsdalean newspaper provided just such an opportunity – the advertisement for the Women’s Life Fall 2019 session jumped right out at me. I recall still doubting myself on the eve of the introductory meeting and had, in fact, decided to “chicken-out”. The next morning though I felt a definitive, forceful pull to attend. I am so grateful for that urge and have not looked back. Each aspect of  the Women’s Life sessions has been a pure blessing, initiated with the overwhelmingly warm reception on day one and developing into true, rich and Christ-filled relationships with absolutely awesome women. These relationships have been so significant, particularly during the recent tough times of social and physical distancing, with our small group still meeting regularly on Zoom. I am so grateful to have been accepted just  the way I am, while also being challenged to learn and grow in faith and purpose."

Linnzie says:

"When you are blessed with a great family and friends and all the conveniences of our modern world, you never expect to need more. Woman’s Life has fulfilled a piece of my world that I didn’t know was missing. The inspiring stories of God and the strong bonds I have made in our small groups have set a path for my spiritual growth and deep connections to our higher power. Thursday mornings were the highlight of my week always leaving with a full heart and a soul closer to God. There truly is no better place to feel acceptance than at Western Springs Baptist Church."

Aimee says:

"My life has been blessed in so many ways by the ladies in Women's Life. I attend another church but was invited by a friend. I love all the diversity that comes together weekly from all denominations and backgrounds.  We encourage each other, pray for each other and each session we have a different study to learn and discuss. Now I look forward to every Thursday because I always leave here uplifted and refreshed from all these women that pour love and wisdom into my life."

Joyce says:

"I went to my first Women’s Life Bible study last fall and have gone to every one since then. All the speakers are truly inspired by the Holy Spirit. I always come away inspired and invigorated in my daily walk with the Lord. The women in our small group are so informative and I learn so much. In other words, it’s awesome!  I can’t wait until fall!"

Peggy says:

"I love the wonderful camaraderie of women delving more deeply into the study of our God."

Melissa says:

"I started coming to Women’s Life in the fall of 2019. I have been faithfully attending WSBC with my family for around 13 years and now my husband attends with me! WSBC has given me so many opportunities to grow in my faith. I have learned so much about reading the Bible and I love studying it in depth.   I love the worship they have, and I enjoy playing guitar. The small group discussion time is my favorite because you get to hear what other ladies think and have learned. We spend some time praying for each other and lifting each other up.  This has been a real blessing to be a part of. I have formed many relationships here over the years and I get to build the ones I already have and make new ones at Women’s life!"

Janet says:

"Women’s life is such a wonderful opportunity to study God’s word and connect together in small groups. I really appreciate how genuine everyone is—women at all different ages and stages of life come together and everyone is so warm and inviting. I look forward to each study we do."
