In our Northview Women’s Bible studies, we seek to meet women where they are and move them forward in Biblical knowledge and in their understanding of how their relationship with God should shape their thinking and actions.
To this end, we provide a variety of study opportunities which share a similar format but require differing levels of commitment. All of our studies are expositional (working through a book of the Bible or section of a book sequentially) and inductive (asking a series of questions which help us observe, interpret, and apply the Biblical text).
Winter 2021 Inductive Bible Studies
We are greatly anticipating another semester of studying God’s word with you! All of our studies are intergenerational and consist of a small group discussion and large group teaching format. You are welcome to attend if you are part of another church on the weekend (it’s not all Northview women at our studies) or if you have never gone to church before. We would be happy to talk through what the Bible teaches as you investigate the claims of the Christian faith.
Daytime studies are on Wednesdays and Thursdays at the Downes Road Campus (as well as online groups). We are sorry to announce that under the current circumstances we cannot offer childcare at this time.
Evening studies take place on Monday night at the Downes Road and Mission campuses (as well as online groups).
In order to prepare yourselves for the discussion and teaching for each study, we suggest that you factor in the following preparation time during the week:
• 2 Corinthians Study – approximately 1-2 hours of study between weekly meeting. • Kings and Prophets Study – approximately 4-5 hours of study between weekly meetings.
What is Inductive Bible study?
We believe God still speaks today and that His primary and authoritative way of doing this is through His Word; all 66 books, every original word inspired by Him! His Word is inerrant, sufficient, and understandable. We believe taking in Scripture is a necessary part of the growing Christians life. God has inspired each book to be written in a way that we can understand what is needed to live His way.
We desire to GROW in knowledge that results in women who look more like Jesus.
We desire to SUBMIT to His Word.
We desire to KNOW God: His character and ways.
We desire to KNOW Jesus: what His life, death and resurrection accomplished (the gospel!).
We strive to do this by using the Inductive Bible study method which uses the Bible as our primary source. This method utilizes 3 tools:
Observation (what does the Bible say?)
Interpretation (What does this mean?)
Application (What do I do?)
Through personal daily study, participation in weekly discussion groups and the teaching that follows, we strive to grasp God’s Word at a deeper and more impactful level. We gather weekly to worship and hear stories of how God is changing women through His Word.
