Non-denominational Women’s Weekly Bible Study

Home-Based Bible Study

This Women’s Bible Study meets 9:30 to 11:00 every Thursday morning at Eleanor Mills’ home in Hillsboro.  This study, which goes through the Bible a chapter at a time, has been meeting for over 35 years.  Under the able leadership of Eleanor Mills who gathers commentary from her resources of more than 50 books, she provides a summary each week on the material being covered. Through the years they have become a support and friendship group as well as learning how the Bible relates to living in the world today. There is no homework but they do use a small book in class.  Stay for coffee, treats and conversation afterwards.  Half of our group are Methodists and the other half are from other denominations.  You can join at any time as there is always room for one more.

Women’s Evening Fellowship

Responding to Prayer Requests    

Twice a month a group of dedicated women gather around the dining room table at Susan Jensen’s home for devotional discussion and sending cards in response to prayers lifted in worship.  We lovingly build community as we follow Christ with our gift of time and compassion.

Please contact Susan Jensen if this sounds like a ministry for you.  Women’s Evening Fellowship meets the second and fourth Mondays of the month at 7:00 pm.
