Women's Monthly Bible Study (WMBS)
About Women's Monthly Bible Study
Women’s Monthly Bible Study consist of small groups that meet once a month September – May for Bible study, fellowship, prayer and mission. This is a great introduction to those new to Bible study too. Small groups are offered on different days, times and meeting durations to meet the needs of women in all stages of life. We welcome new members at any time during the year. Come join us.
Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight
God wants to give you a gift that could change your life – a way to slow down and relax.
As we study the passages from Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, and Acts to understand Sabbath, we’ll learn how to embrace Sabbath as a way to honor God.

Opportunities for Giving
Each small group collects money for local non-profits that are distributed at the end of each year.
Since 1888, when a day was set aside for prayer and thanksgiving, funds have been collected in the fall to support health ministries and new areas of mission around the world. Street Youth Ministry has been a recipient in the past.
Since 1922, funds have been collected in the spring to support national and international missions. Manos de Cristo and the Presbyterian Children’s Home have been recipients of this offering in the past.
Fellowship of the Least Coin
The offering began in 1956 with Shanti Solomon of India, who felt that women everywhere could have a sense of being part of the worldwide family of faith by setting aside the “least coin” of their country. Grants are made by an international committee for special projects of evangelism, service and relief throughout the world.
Honors and Awards
Each year the Presbyterian Women of Covenant award an Honorary Life Membership to a special woman in recognition of faithful service to God and our church.
