Women

Women, no matter the stage of life we are in, face challenges that are often specific to who they are and how God has designed them. West Hills offers several ministries designed to help women in the various seasons and stages that are unique to them. We want to see women come to love Jesus, glorify Him in their everyday lives, and help women live on mission for the glory of God. Please take the time to look over these ministries and see where you might connect with other women in the body of Christ.

“The Promised One – Seeing Jesus in Genesis” by Nancy Guthrie
DVD Series with workbook
Begins September 10
7 – 9 pm
Cost is $15.00 for the workbook
NO childcare provided

After the resurrection, when Jesus used Scripture to explain who he was and why he came, where did he start? In the Old Testament. And this is where The Promised One begins to look for Christ, finding him in the people, promises, and patterns of the Old Testament scriptures.

The Promised One will help you:

  • make new discoveries of Jesus as seen in the shadows of the Old Testament;
  • apply the gospel found in Genesis to issues such as shame, fear, and the desire for security and significance;
  • develop your longing for what is ahead when the world is once again made new.

Tuesday Evening Study

“James – Faith/Works” by Matt Chandler
Begins October 9
7 – 9 pm
$15.00 for the workbook
No Childcare

James had a unique earthly relationship with Jesus, but his letter clarifies what the Christian life should look like for us all. This 13-session study examines the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We don’t work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained

 Wednesday Bible Study

“God of Creation” by Jen Wilkin

Begins September 12th – 9:00-11:00 am
Cost is $15 for the Book and $25 with Childcare

The opening lines and chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.

Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into the first 11 chapters of Genesis by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application.  Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.

Contact Nancy Wells for more information.
Childcare is available.
