Pick up a Devotional

Looking for a good summer read? Now is a great time to kick-start your faith with one of our complimentary devotionals. There are two to choose from: Our Daily Bread and Today in the Word, by Moody Publishers. You can pick up your free devotional any time from the Welcome Area or in the hallway on the table under the church bulletin board. Sponsored by your Discipling Team.

Women’s Bible Studies

Studying the Bible with a group of women is a wonderful way to grow in your faith and cultivate meaningful friendships. Whether you are experienced with the Bible or have never really read it, the Women’s Bible study has a place for you! Southminster offers a variety of different Bible Studies that change with the seasons. Below are two studies. A new Beth Moore begins this February and meets every other Tuesday from 9:30-11:30. Childcare is available upon request. For more information please contact Kathy or Barb.

Heart of a Woman Bible Study

Meets every Tuesday

1:15 – 3:00 p.m. at Southminster

We are a group of women who enjoy each other’s company and would like to welcome you to join us! You don’t need any experience with the Bible or Scripture. We are very friendly and encouraging and want you to enjoy the experience of being in a relationship with Jesus Christ. At the beginning of each meeting, we visit with one another for about 15 minutes before beginning our study. This fall we begin a study on Ephesians.
If you have questions or need more information, please call Jean Ward  at 847.259.6255 or email


Men’s Bible Study

We are men of all ages with a wide range of both Bible and life experiences. Our goal is to learn more about the Bible and how each of us tries to follow Christ in our daily lives. We are very open about how and when we mess up. We trust that God’s love and grace will cover our faults and help us live lives closer to how Jesus wants us to be. Contact us for a list of summer meeting times or for more info.

Bible Boys Bible Study

We’re on summer break and will resume after Labor Day. Please join us! 

Meeting Thursday evenings

7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in the Southminster Library

All men are welcome! The Bible Boys consist of men ranging in age from 30-somethings to 80-somethings. Our Biblical knowledge covers the spectrum, from beginner to many years contemplating the Bible and its application to our lives. We each have a hunger to know more about being Christ-followers in today’s society. Each week we start with the Bible, but the conversation soon leads us into practical ways we can apply these teachings in our lives. There is plenty of laughter, and we are never quite sure where the discussions will lead. Visit this page in September to find out what we’ll be studying this fall.

Email Dennis or call him at 224.520.2831.

Bible Bums Group

We’re on summer break and will resume after Labor Day. Please join us! 

Mondays, 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Southminster – The “Loft” located downstairs

The Bible Bums resume meeting on Mondays this fall, and all men are welcome to join! We provide nourishment for the mind, body, and the soul in a relaxed, casual atmosphere, discussing Scripture, enjoying fellowship, and sharing stories. We’re never sure where some of the discussion may lead, but rest assured it’s always interesting.

We don’t follow a script—just Scripture! We hope you’ll join us and bring a friend. For more information, email Ed Gudonis.
