Every five years the Women of Grace read through the entire Bible together. We begin at the end of August and go into May and are immensely blessed all along the way. It’s 2021 and it’s time to begin again!



Many of us know bits and pieces of the Bible, but often we don't understand how it all fits together. Its 66 books actually tell One Big Story of God, and our part in His story. Our "Read through the Bible" will provide an opportunity to explore this story, one book at a time, alongside friends and encouragers, and meet weekly for teaching and discussion time.

FAQ’S ABOUT ONE BIG STORY 2021-2

  • This book is the foundation of our faith— but many of us have never had the opportunity or taken the opportunity to read it in its entirety. Think of it this way:  Reading snippets of the Bible is like watching only a few scenes and the climax of a movie. Tuning in from start to finish provides a better understanding of the entire story line.

  • Our assignments and teaching sessions focus on themes of God's covenant, His character, and His plan of redemption. As we view the stories of the Bible in their rich historical context, it strengthens our faith in God. As we encounter His promises, it bolsters our hope in Him. Faith and hope are not academic, but part of our intimate relationship with God.

  • It's like a book club.  Longer books, like Genesis, will be read one at a time. Shorter books will be grouped together by author or by their place in history. The assigned reading will generally be in chronological order of when the books were written. While it is difficult to quantify the time required for weekly assignments, plan on reading or listening to an average of 5 chapters per day. Pursue a habit of daily devotion to God’s Word and commit to attending the weekly session no matter how much reading you have completed on your own.

  • Each week, one of our women's Bible study teachers will teach on the book you just finished reading. She will summarize the story line, highlight the themes, and show how God's character is showcased. Afterward, small group discussion time provides a place to connect with others, ask questions, and apply God's word to your life. Your particular class will be tailored based on available time.

  • If you miss a class, keep going.  Don’t stop and try to catch up, just move along to the next book.  Don’t quit!
