Women's Life Groups


There are several women's Midweek Life Groups offering Bible studies that range from in-depth courses to times of prayer and sharing. We have Life Groups for everyone from moms with young children to retirees and widows and for everyone in between; and for new believers to the seasoned follower. Groups are limited to approximately ten women each. To join a group, pay for workbooks or group materials and if you have questions, please contact Linda at 360.866.6888 or lmaring@westwoodbaptist.com.

A Children's Program is provided to minister to the children of women regularly attending Tuesday Midweek Life Groups. The program includes planned Bible study and activities for children two to five years of age and for home-schooled children plus we offer nursery care for those under two. For your child's safety there are limitations in class size, therefore, registration must be received and approved before admittance. Ladies participating in our Tuesday groups may be asked to help in the children's program once or twice during the year.

The list of the Groups/Studies being offered is below. Please note:
  • Tuesday groups meet 9:15 am to 11:15 am, Sept. 9, 2014 - May 19, 2015
  • Wednesday groups meet 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, Sept. 10, 2014 - April 29, 2015
  • All groups meet at Westwood.

Becky's Group (Tues.) Knowing God By Name--Isaiah 61:3, Oaks of Righteousness study: Throughout the Old Testament God has revealed Himself by giving Himself some unique and descriptive names. The names confirm God's character, His heart, His provision, His power and especially His goodness. Knowing God by name is important because you must know God before you can ever hope to enter into an intimate love relationship with Him. God's names were usually revealed at a significant turning point in a person's life. The 20 lessons will cover the person or the event where God's name is revealed and will consider what the name of God means, both for those to whom it was given and also for us today. The cost of $5 covers the expense of photocopying the handouts. This group is now full and not able to accept new registrations.

Bev's Group (Tues.) Romans--LifeChange Series: A key verse in the book of Romans is “The righteous shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17b). For 20 weeks, we will be exploring the foundations of our faith--the gospel and how to live out that faith. This study will focus on being renewed in the truth of the gospel and then renewing those in our lives with that truth. Each participant will have a workbook with homework. Each week, we will gather to discuss the homework in small group discussion and also in large group interaction. Prayer time is incorporated into the morning. The homework will take about 30-40 minutes three days a week. Workbook cost is $9.00.

Deb's Group (Tues.) Following Jesus: This is a new group focused on the basics of faith and Christian living. If you are seeking to be a follower of Christ or are new to studying the Word of God this may be the perfect group for you. Register now to reserve your spot. Questions? Contact Deb at demobo@dodebo.com.

Judy's Group (Tues.) Ezekiel, Parts 1 and 2--Precept Upon Precept study: In Part 1 God appoints Ezekiel as a watchman to warn His people of coming judgment. Seeing visions and performing signs, he called individuals to turn from wickedness to righteousness because God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. In Part 2 the watchman speaks hope from the Lord. God will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthens the sick. He will set over them one Shepherd and He will feed them Himself. Then they will know that He is the Lord and they are His people. Total cost for both workbooks is $42. This group is now full and not able to accept new registrations.

Marcia's Group and Darla's Group (Tues.) Children of the Day, 1 & 2 Thessalonians--Beth Moore LifeWay study: During this nine week verse-by-verse Bible study, you'll learn how to let go of past mistakes and discover your circumstances are not coincidental--God's timing is impeccable! Whether you're facing family crises, medical diagnoses, relationship troubles, doubts or fears, you'll come away encouraged that even though it may not feel that way, you are exactly where Christ wants you to be! Workbook cost is $20. Both Marcia's group and Darla's group are now full and unable to accept new registrations.

Kristin's Group (Wed.) Romans--Isaiah 61:3, Oaks of Righteousness study: The good news of Romans is that through Jesus Christ we can be set free--not only from the penalty of sin but also from the power of sin in our lives. Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in us, we are set free from spiritual bondage and set free to become all that God the Father created us to be--people who love, enjoy and serve God as we love, enjoy and serve others! The cost of $5 covers the expense of photocopying the handouts.

Lois' Group (Wed.) Daniel, Lives of Integrity, Words of Prophecy--Beth Moore LifeWay Study: Join this 12 week faith-building study of prophecy and learn how to live with integrity in today's self-absorbed society. The prophet Daniel faced unbelievable pressures to compromise his faith, to live in a hostile culture, and to confront temptations and threats. Today, believers in Jesus Christ face many of the same trials. Workbook cost is $20. This group is now full and unable to accept new registrations.

Sharon's Group (Tues.) Sermon on the Mount, Precept Upon Precept Study: This is our newest group which will be using Precept study materials with a little twist--two weeks will be used to cover each lesson. This will allow a little more time for you busy, busy ladies to complete your lesson and to get to know one other a little better. In this study you will find faith that does not compromise is promised a reward in the world to come, and also a life free from anxiety in this world. Get a deeper understanding of the fruit and security that come with righteousness in the life of a true believer. You'll never look at the Beatitudes the same way again! Workbook cost is $24.50. Please note this group will begin Tuesday Sept. 16 not on the 9th as the other groups. This group is now full and not able to accept new registrations.
