Men's and Women's Mid-Week Bible Study

Starts Week of September 14th

Ephesians Title Slide

Join us this fall as we study through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. We'll be using Precept Ministry’s In & Out study called The Church: Rooted in Love, Walking in Power. It's an 11-week, inductive, verse-by-verse study of Ephesians that will help you “Know God deeply. Live differently.


Due to considerations arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve made some changes to the format of our mid-week Bible studies (for both Men and Women). Here are the details:


What will adult mid-week Bible study look like this Fall?

  • We will be meeting in a small-group format (individual groups of 8-12 people). Groups will be able to meet in-person on DVBC’s campus, or online via ZOOM.
  • For groups meeting on-campus, we will be meeting in the Adult Classrooms in our new building! This will enable us to host multiple groups at one time while still following safety/sanitation protocols.

When will Bible study groups meet?

  • Groups will meet throughout the week at different times of day. Morning, afternoon, and evening time slots are available throughout the week to maximize flexibility and enable as many people as possible to participate. When you register, you’ll be invited to choose a time and day that works for you.
  • For those who participated in Women in the Word or Boys in the Book last semester, you’ll be invited to continue meeting with your group from last semester, or you can choose a different day/time that works for you.
  • If you're new to our mid-week studies, registration will give you options for a time and day that fits your schedule.

What will group meetings look like?

  • Each group meeting will involve fellowship time, discussion on the week’s Scripture passage, teaching (pre-recorded by DVBC staff and leaders), and prayer for one another.
  • Bible study groups will include most of the same elements as in previous years, but delivered in small groups rather than large gatherings.

How much does it cost?

  • Registration is $20, which will include your Precept In & Out materials.

When do we start?

  • Bible study groups will begin meeting during the week of Sept. 14 (various times and days throughout the week), and will meet for 11 weeks (last meetings will be held the week of Nov. 30).

I have questions. Who can I ask? 

What do I need to do?

  • Decide to jump in! Don’t miss this chance to study the Word, deepen your relationships, and make new friends. If you’ve participated previously, you know how good it is to study God’s Word together. If this is brand new to you – there’s never been a better time to start!
