Welcome to our new Bible study…today we begin One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land by Priscilla Schirer. Priscilla is passionate about the Word of God and it is always a joy to learn through her teaching. We begin our six week online bible study with an introduction. For this study we are using the workbook (white cover). Priscilla Shirer also has a “chapter” book with the same title (blue cover).
Our goal this week is to answer the question: How does online Bible study work? When yo SHOW UP, we answer that question on the very first day!
Before we begin reading One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer, make sure you have signed up for this study. We ask that you will pray for the women leading this Bible study and that you will pray for each other we we study, connect, and grow.
We’ll begin our study today by gathering for an introduction small group session. For womens online Bible study, we meet virtually and discuss the Bible once a week. You will be joining a small group with a leader and coleader. At the introduction small group meeting, you learn how this works.
Some people like the benefit of the audio and video sessions for the study. These resources are available from Lifeway and convenient to have. If you were sitting in local church small group, they usually include a video session followed by a small group discussion.
Here at the Womens Bible Cafe™ we do things differently because we are geographically separated in many time zones and countries. While do recommend the Priscilla Shirer audio/video sessions* due to the cost, they are optional.
You can rent or buy the audio/video sessions at Lifeway. I personally enjoy listening to the sessions with phone. Of of our students Charmaine mentioned the benefit of this last week.
It’s nice to refresh the message of the Bible. In fact sometimes we want a second cup!
