Women of the Word is an exciting weekly Bible study that meets in the Fireside Room of Castro Valley First Baptist Church, 18550 Redwood Rd., Castro Valley, California (at the corner of Redwood Road and Seven Hills Road). We also have two satellite discussion groups, described below. All three groups include women of all ages and are free of charge.

lizThe Tuesday study meets from 9:25-11:30 a.m. and is taught live by the author of the series, Liz Fosdahl. Childcare is provided for pre-schoolers upon reservation. We have a wonderful time of worship, study and fellowship, concluding with a half-hour lecture from Liz, who holds a degree in Bible from Simpson College.  She has been teaching Bible for more than 38 years. Liz has a knack of making the difficult understandable and relevant, and she ties it all together in a stimulating and challenging way. Women from more than 30 churches attend this study.

An evening study runs concurrently each Thursday from 7-8:30 p.m. The week's lesson is discussed and we listen together to the recording of that Tuesday's lecture. There is no childcare for this evening study.  Joann Nitao leads the discussion.

An off-site group meets in the Brentwood/Antioch/Oakley area on Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 p.m. at Renewed Life Church, 1435 Main Street, Oakley. Childcare can be arranged upon request. Karen Reyna (925) 408-5497 and Karen Reiss (510) 909-3169 co-lead this group. Like the evening group, they will discuss the lesson and listen to the recorded lecture together.

Studying the Word together is enjoyable and life-changing! Come see for yourself. And bring a friend!
