Women at the Well
September 9, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT
“Women at the Well” Bible Study Group
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Shadyside Presbyterian Church building and offices are open on a limited basis. Most activities remain online only. Click here to learn more.
Shadyside Presbyterian Church welcomes women of all ages to gather online with the “Women at the Well” for in-depth Bible study, discussion, and fellowship. Friendships and connections grow deeper when we share the Scriptures in study and prayer.
This fall, we are exploring The Names of God: His Character Revealed, by Melissa Spoelstra. The six-week study delves deeper into God’s names, including Yahweh, Jesus, Holy Spirit, El, Abba, and Elohim.
Beginning Thursday, September 9, the group will gather from 10:30 a.m. to noon. In general, we meet on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, but check the calendar for exceptions. Our tentative schedule is as follows:
- September 9 and 23
- October 14 and 28
- November 11
- December 9
We hope to meet in person, but, if the church has not opened for activities by that date, we will continue meeting virtually via Zoom videoconferencing. Questions? Please contact Deacon Connie Coffelt through the church office.
Join us online as together we seek to quench the thirsting of our souls!
About the Study
Today’s culture and others’ views, even those of other Christians, can present a distorted view of God. Some suggest God exudes qualities He does not possess, such as being unloving or apathetic toward His creation. In a world where we find people creating God in their own image, studying God’s names can remind us that we are created in His. In fact, one of the best ways to know God’s true character and grow closer to Him is to study His names.
In The Names of God, Melissa Spoelstra leads women on an exploration of the many names of our Triune God — from El and Elohim to Yahweh and its many combinations, as well as names such as Abba, Jesus, and Holy Spirit … and many others.
