Category: Heart to Heart Bible Study
Spring (January 28 – April 30 2014)
Seedlings by Women of Woodcreek
Does your plan for the New Year include a new habit – Bible study? Do you want to study God’s word for yourself but need help getting started? Seedlings is a uniquely devotional bible study method that teaches you to settle your heart and mind, pick out spiritual principles in the context of a passage and examine your own heart to see what that looks like in your life. This 10 week study is based on Priscilla Shirer’s 5 P’s. Each week includes an introductory story written by women of Woodcreek, reflective questions to help focus on an area of our lives God is at work and 5 passages to dive into as you ask, “God, what do you have for me in this passage?”
The word of God, you see, is alive and moving; sharper than a double-edged sword; piercing the divide between soul and spirit, joints and marrow; able to judge the thoughts and will of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (The Voice) Join us as we discover together how true that is!
Tuesday night classes meet 6:45- 9:00 PM and Wednesday morning classes meet 8:45-11:00 AM. Childcare available for Wednesday morning classes.

What they are saying about Seedlings…
“The 5 P’s and the Seeds/Seedlings were wonderful because the study caused me to more personally study and apply God’s word (not just get answers to questions).”
~ Carol Bernett, Seeds
“I had not heard of the 5 P’s before. It’s a wonderful way to study the bible! It has made it come alive and have meaning in my walk, and made the Bible so much more personal. It has brought me considerably closer to the Lord, and the closer I get, the bigger sinner I see myself to be, and the bigger, more gracious and loving the Lord becomes to me. Thank you for exposing me to this way of studying the Word.”
~ Julie Boron, Seeds
“The Seed study really opened my eyes by allowing me to read scripture and then watch it literally breathe new life into me. By doing the steps with the passages, I was revealing God’s Word to me in a meaningful and personal way, really for the 1st time in some ways. No simple questions or general readings. But writing, paraphrasing, questioning. It’s led to a method I can use from now on. And, has given me a deeper hunger to spend time w/God daily & learn.”
~ Kari Benson, Seeds

Category: Heart to Heart Bible Study
Since 1986, Woodcreek Church has offered Heart to Heart Bible studies. This is a great way to get connected with the women of Woodcreek! Even though we know that the Bible is God’s love letter to His children, filled with comfort, guidance, and life-giving instruction, many of us struggle with being in God’s Word regularly. Heart to Heart provides the encouragement we need to draw life lessons from the Bible with women who are on the journey with us. And in the process, we find not only a closer relationship with God, but also spiritually encouraging relationships with other women.
Heart to Heart runs from mid-September through the end of April, and meets on Tuesday evenings (6:45-9:00 PM) and Wednesday mornings (8:45-11:00 AM). Time is divided into three parts: large group gathering, small group (8-12 women) discussion, and prayer. Each small group enjoys dinners or brunches, and service projects. If you have little ones at home, Little Hearts for God is offered on Wednesday mornings, complete with stories, crafts and music.
There are three great studies to choose from. The Filling in the Gaps groups are a great place to start if you’re new to Bible study or just want a more solid Biblical foundation. The Amazing Collection study is a 3-year life-changing overview of the entire Bible, while our Pursuit! groups offer a new study each year designed to challenge your understanding of the Bible.

What they are saying about Heart 2 Heart:
“A great place to enrich your relationship with God and women. Through Heart to Heart, I have learned a new way to study the Bible. Inductive study makes the Word come alive in my life in a very practical way. It has strengthened my communication with God and helped me to live my life more in tune with God’s specific plan for me. Through Heart to Heart, I have met new friends. Forever friends. Christian sisters. There is a level of trust and openness achieved when you sit over God’s Word with other women on a regular basis.”
~ Jan Bennett, Pursuit 12-13
“Heart2Heart has been a wonderful experience these last 3 years. Having no knowledge of the Bible when I started The Amazing Collections, it has been such a rewarding study to go through the complete Bible starting with Genesis and ending with Revelation. I have enjoyed the fellowship with other women and it has been so encouraging to see the power of God’s Word in the lives of the women as they seek a closer relationship with Him.”
~ Linda Ledbetter, TAC3 12-13
“It made me take time out in my busy schedule to stay in the Word.”
~ Sherrill Bodie, Pursuit 12-13
