Bible Study Conference is for Presbyterian Women leaders utilizing the Horizons Bible Study who are preparing for the next year’s study. The author of the 2017-2018 study, Melissa Bane Sevier, will be here to give participants an in-depth look at the study and share in conversation about topics within that study.
We have purposely placed this conference between the two sessions of the Women’s Conference. Participants in the Women’s Conference will have the opportunity to select the Horizon Bible Study Workshop for additional information and conversation on teaching tips and ideas for use in meetings with their Bible study groups back home. The 2017 Women’s Conference is being led by keynote speaker, MaryAnn McKibben Dana!
If you register for Session 1 (May 30-June 1) you can stay an extra day and delve deeper into the study; if you register for Session 2 (June 2-4) you will be here the day before Women’s Conference begins!
The theme of the 2017-2018 Horizons Bible Study will be “Hebrews.”
Come and join in learning, surrounded by God’s beautiful creation at Mo-Ranch. Make plans to be a part of this conference today!
Register now, space is limited!
