Women at the Well

October 27, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT

“Women at the Well” Bible Study Group

Shadyside Presbyterian Church welcomes women of all ages to gather 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 Acts: Awakening to God in Everyday Life, by Melissa Spoelstra. In this six-unit study, participants will journey with the first followers of Jesus and witness the birth and growth of the Early Church through spiritual awakening to the power of God’s Spirit.

Beginning Thursday, September 8, the group will gather from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Craig Room. 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 8: Awakening to God’s Power (Acts 1-4)
  • September 22: Awakening to God’s Message (Acts 5-9)
  • October 13: Awakening to God’s Freedom (Acts 10-14)
  • October 27: Awakening to God’s Grace (Acts 15-19)
  • November 10: Awakening to God’s Mission (Acts 20-24)
  • December 8: Awakening to God’s Dimension (Acts 25-28)

Each unit has a five-day lesson plan; each lesson takes about twenty minutes. Please prepare the first unit, Acts 1-4, before our first gathering. Masking will be based on the COVID-19 community level in Allegheny County for each week. Click here to learn more. 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

Whether it’s because of distractions, busyness, or a case of the blahs, we can experience a drift toward indifference in our spiritual lives. We have a need for an ongoing spiritual awakening if we want to become more aware of God’s presence and activity in our everyday lives.

In Acts: Awakening to God in Everyday Life, a six-week study of the Book of Acts by Melissa Spoelstra, you will journey with the first followers of Jesus and witness the birth and growth of the Early Church through spiritual awakening to the power of God’s Spirit, message, freedom, grace, mission, and direction.

From their experiences you will learn postures that will help you attune your own spiritual heart to experience God’s presence, hear God’s voice, and see God at work all around.

This study offers a fresh encounter with God to prepare you to:

  • Face daily battles
  • Be able to discern the messages of our culture
  • Be ready to share God’s love with others always
