Women Together in the Word

Our weekly Bible study for women resumed September 13 with a study of the book of Ruth. Read below for more information and click here to register for morning or evening sessions. If you need childcare for the morning class, register each child age infant–4 as soon as possible.

WOMEN TOGETHER IN THE WORD (WTW) is Trinity’s women’s Bible studies. To accommodate the schedules of more women, the same curriculum is offered twice each Wednesday during the school year. WTW welcomes women of all life stages as we enjoy godly teaching and encouragement from a woman’s perspective, learning together and growing in grace and knowledge. We take joy in the combination of singles, young moms, older moms, and seasoned citizens who attend. If you need a special time apart in God’s Word with other women, please join us.

The book of Ruth is just four short chapters in the Old Testament, squeezed in between the account of anarchy during the period when judges presided over Israel and 1 Samuel, where the story of Ruth’s great grandson, King David, begins. In those four chapters, uniquely presented through a woman’s viewpoint, we find great loss and redemption, tragedy and blessing, deep despair and soaring hope, as well as midday lunches and midnight intrigue. But overall is the constant theme of devotion—fierce, steadfast, loyal love—seen clearly among the main characters of the story, and even more so in God’s steadfast love for His people in the foreshadowing of His provision for their ultimate redemption in Christ. God works powerfully through Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz to advance His redemptive plan and demonstrate his character.

Morning sessions are 9:15–11:30am with childcare opening at 9am. The morning begins with a lesson by one of our four teachers. Then we break into small groups for discussion, fellowship, and prayer. Evening sessions are 7:30–9pm without childcare. The evening starts with a time of interactive group study and discussion followed by fellowship and praying for one another. A study guide with the passages of scripture and questions to consider in preparation is provided for all participants.

Small Groups (morning session)
WTW small groups do not replace parish small groups. Instead, they provide women of all ages a precious opportunity to reflect together with other women on the teaching and reality of God's lessons in our daily lives. Small groups are a crucial component of the ministry, giving time to talk over the teaching we have heard. This time allows us to internalize, process, and discuss the lessons. Knit together by prayer, these groups supply encouragement as we allow the Holy Spirit to make the lessons real in our lives.

We value the friendships that form in small groups and the strengthening presence of companionship in like experiences. We value as well the richness that diversity of age, situation, and life experience presents. In forming groups, we diligently seek to balance the desires of friends to be in the same small group or with others in similar life circumstances with the call to allow the Holy Spirit to help us reach beyond our own affinities.
