Congratulations, Girlfriends! Also known at times as ("Godchicks"). We just passed our 5 year anniversary and we didn’t even know it! So here’s a little refresher course of our history that ends with the question of what to do next, so be thinking…

We began our study group, “Women Alive!” on Tuesday, May 29, 2007 with a book study guide, A Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study by Jen Hatmaker, which included studying passages from various parts of the Bible. Then, using Jen's suggested schedule, we studied 1 & 2 Peter and Ruth. We concluded the year with Road Trip by Jen Hatmaker.

In 2008, we studied Acts, Romans, Philippians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1, 2 & 3 John, and Jude using the journaling strategies learned in A Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study.

In 2009, we continued using the journaling strategies learned in A Modern Girls Guide to Bible Study for our studies of Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians, and 1 & 2 Corinthians. In the fall, we studied Giving to God by Mark Allen Powell in conjunction with a church-wide ministry appeal. In December we had miscellaneous Advent devotions.

In January 2010, we began a 2-year schedule of reading through the Chronological Study Bible (RKJV). In September of 2011 we decided to shorten the length of the weekly readings so that we could better comprehend what we were reading, even though it would lengthen our 2-year goal.

Today, June 19, 2012, we read our last chapters of Revelation, and concluded with a very brief synopsis from Pastor Brad Highum, who is leading a study of Revelation with the Tuesday Morning Bible Study Group. We closed the study with a prayer and a group picture in front of the Cross Wall.

Girlfriends, you rock!
