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.

Heart of a Woman Bible Study

Meets every Tuesday

1:30 – 3:00 p.m. at Southminster

Currently we are discussing the 7 Big Questions in the Explore God series. We’d love for you to join the group! We are women who enjoy each other’s company and who always welcome new faces. 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. We hope you will join us and learn how Christ works in your life. If you have questions or need more information, please call Jean Ward  at 847.259.6255 or email

Wednesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

7:30 – 8:30 a.m.

Barnabas Room at Southminster

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. If you have questions or need more information, call Keith North at 847.398.5421.

Chapel at Southminster

We welcome all men to the Bible Boys, which ranges in age from 30-somethings to 80-somethings; from experienced Bible student to the beginner. We seek to learn how the Bible applies to our everyday lives, and how we can be Christ-followers in today’s society. Join us in January 2019 when we’ll discuss the 7 Big Questions as we investigate the Explore God series. So bring your questions! For more information, email 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.
