Women’s Discipleship Groups have been ongoing at NCF since 2011. Our goals are:
1) to teach women Bible study skills to help in their study of God’s Word
2) to know God’s Word and see it change us from the inside out
3) to develop strong relationships with our sisters in Christ
We used two books to learn how to study God’s Word – Women of the Word How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds by Jen Wilkin and Knowing Scripture by R.C. Sproul. We continued with Jen Wilkin’s study guides for First Peter and Genesis 1-11. We will continue this fall of 2019 with the rest of Genesis.
These groups are for adult women and seniors in high school and local freshman in college. In these groups women come together once a month to share a meal, study God’s Word, fellowship with one another, and pray with and for each other. Out of these monthly meetings we are seeing lasting friendships develop, a love and hunger for God’s Word and a desire to share what we are experiencing with other ladies an NCF. We encourage all ladies to pray and consider being in one of our groups.
This course is designed for those wishing to become official members of New City Fellowship or who want to become better acquainted with the church vision and mission in the community. Taught by Pastor Bob, the course focuses on doctrine, discipleship. church government and history. requirements for church membership, and child safety.
Are you ready to dig a little deeper? Do you have a desire to fellowship more often as you experience God’s Word?
Precept Upon Precept Bible studies are in-depth studies for women who are ready for a higher level of time commitment. Each study takes you directly to the Word of God, teaching you to learn to hear from Him as He speaks through His word. The goal of Precept studies is for you to intimately understand the whole counsel of God, verse by verse through a personal, rich inductive study. Each week you have the opportunity to spend about an hour a day at His feet, learning from Him - observing the focus verses, doing word studies to understand the passage better, examining cross references to process the Word in light of the rest of the Bible, and applying what you have learned to your own life. We then come together weekly to share what we have seen and heard through our individual study time. After our discussion, we wrap up the week’s lesson with a video lecture by Kay Arthur, who pulls together what we’ve studied with her characteristic passion and insight.
This year we have been studying the book of Genesis. Genesis holds the keys to understanding the origin of sin and evil, the justice of God’s judgment, and the mercy of God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and hope for a lost and dying world.
We hope to continue digging deeply into the Word of God next year as we move into the book of Exodus and watch Moses develop as a leader. Through our study of Exodus we will see God deliver His people by judging their enemies and learn powerful truths about His ways. A remarkably practical study of deliverance, redemption, the Law, and the Tabernacle.
Options are available for more or less “homework” depending on your time commitments. If needed, childcare is available. We would love to have you join us!
