Phoebe Bible Study
Join our new women's bible study! The group meets on the second Monday of the month in the church library at 7 pm.
For those of us who hadn’t heard of Phoebe, she “was a first-century Christian woman mentioned by the Apostle Paul in his Epistle to the Romans, verses 16:1-2. A notable woman in the church of Cenchreae, she was trusted by Paul to deliver his letter to the Romans. In writing to the church that almost surely met in her home, Paul refers to her both as a deacon and as a helper or patron of many. This is the only place in the New Testament where a woman is specifically referred to with these two distinctions. Paul introduces Phoebe as his emissary to the church in Rome and, because they are not acquainted with her, Paul provides them with her credentials.”
We will be studying from a book called "Friend Me" by Group Publishing. This series "helps women move from getting acquainted to becoming friends and growing in their faith together. Research has shown that those who have friends at church are more likely to be involved, to grow in their faith, and to stay connected." Join us for an evening of friendship, discussion and bible study!
