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.

Growing in Grace Women’s Bible Study

Meeting every other Tuesday. Next meeting February 27, 2018.

9:15 – 11:30 a.m. at Southminster

You are invited to join women from the church and surrounding community for Bible study, fellowship, and prayer support. This fall we will plunge into the heart of Genesis, God’s remarkable pursuit of relationship, and the unfolding of His earthly plan with The Patriarchs: Encountering the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by Beth Moore. How far will God go to bless His children? Full of twists and turns, ruin and redemption, revelation and mystery, this Bible study will keep us captivated by the God who stars in it! Many of the most profound and enduring concepts in the whole counsel of God’s Word are initiated in this marvelous book of beginnings.

No Bible study experience is required. Workbooks cost $10.00 and scholarships are available.Childcare is available upon request. SPC Contact: Kathy Erickson

NEW! Growing in Grace Bible Study

Beginning March 27 and meeting every other Tuesday

9:15 – 11:30 a.m.

Southminster Chapel

All women are invited to this small group discussion and DVD Presentation, First Corinthians – Living Love When We Disagree by Christian author Melissa Spoelstra. This five-week study will explore Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we, as Christians, are to deal with differences and divisions, whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. The answer lies in living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ. We’ll unpack what this means and learn how we can live by it day by day.

No Bible Study experience required. Workbooks costs $10.00, and scholarships are available. Childcare is also available upon request. If you have questions or need more information, email Kathy Erickson

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

Meeting Thursday evenings

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

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. We are currently studying Galatians. ALL MEN ARE WELCOME. Please join us!

Contact: Dennis or call him at 224.520.2831.

Bible Bums Group

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.
