Believers Fellowship offers women many opportunities to grow in their walk with the Lord, and to be better equipped to more effectively minister in their homes, in church, and in their communities.

LIFE Fellowship Bible Studies
(Ladies Instruction For Excellence): LIFE is an in-depth Bible Study which meets on scheduled Tuesdays from September through April (a specific list of the dates for this year’s study will be provided with the Bible study materials). Women work on lessons individually before coming to the meetings, and then at a typical Tuesday meeting we gather for a brief time of fellowship and then break into small groups for additional instruction to build up and encourage one another. Morning and evening sessions are offered, with childcare available in the mornings.
The 2018-2019 study will begin on Tuesday, September 11, 2018. This year we will be reading the book “Respectable Sins” by Jerry Bridges and working through a companion study guide provided by the Believers Fellowship women’s ministry. If you are new to the church after the start date or otherwise unable to join at the beginning and would like to join the study, you are very welcome to join in at any time throughout the year. Simply contact the church office for information.
Titus Two Fellowships
These fellowships provide women another opportunity for biblical instruction, practical discussion, and fellowship. Each quarter an evening program is offered on a selected topic. All women ages 13 and up are invited to attend.
The summer Titus Two was held on Monday, July 23rd. The evening started with delicious food, a fun and refreshing limeade and flavor add in station, and fellowship, but didn’t end there. Jana Saldana shared her beautiful testimony of how God used the gospel witness of people who poured into her life many instances of intentional hospitality and speaking the truth of God’s word to eventually lead her to repentance and salvation, and we had the joy of giving God glory because as she said, by God’s grace she now enjoys the ultimate hospitality of knowing she shares a place at His table, thank You, Jesus!
The women were then encouraged and convicted as Alyssa Stanley spoke on the topic of “Hospitality With a Purpose.” After Alyssa’s talk, the women visited several different rooms where ladies shared creative ways they have used to practice hospitality, which gave us all some fresh ideas and the encouragement to grow in our practice of Christian hospitality with a purpose. Some of the creative ideas shared were, Extending Biblical Hospitality to Newcomers, Game Night, Mixed Up Mess Hall or Mystery Dinner, Blessing Bags for the Homeless, National Night Out, and Weekly Dinner Fellowship.

Save the dates for the upcoming Titus Two’s: Thursday, October 25 “What are you Thinking?” And Tuesday, April 30, 2019 “Navigating Social Media for the Glory of God”. Childcare is avialble on a limited basis for this event. Please call Elizabeth Carnes on her landline at 210-267-1908 by Friday, October 19th to make arrangements.
Single Woman’s Ministry
The Single Woman’s Ministry meets on a monthly basis for the purpose of encouragement, companionship and fellowship. We look for opportunities to serve one another and grow in our walk with the Lord. This ministry is geared towards single women who are out of their college years and not yet part of our Anna’s group (older widows). This includes women who are single moms, divorced, never-married, married to unbelieving husbands, or temporary single (example-husband is deployed). If you are interested in being a part of this ministry, please do not hesitate in contacting Alyssa Stanley or the church office.
Once a year, usually in the Fall, the ladies of Believer’s Fellowship have a Women’s Luncheon. The luncheon is opened up to all women in the church as well as their guests.
On Saturday, September 29, 2018, the women of Believers Fellowship and their guests enjoyed attending the Women’s Fall Luncheon. The sanctuary was transformed into a lovely banquet arena, with creative Fall decorations adorning the tables. We heard beautiful music that tuned our hearts to worship and prepared us to hear the teaching from Roberta Blakey. She encouraged us by speaking on the topic, “Dwelling on What is True.” Referring to various scriptures as she spelled out the acronym, TRUE, we were reminded to Think about what we think about, Remember truth about God in our daily living, Understand ourselves accurately, and Examine our relationships through the lens of truth. You may listen to Roberta’s teaching and hear from several women who shared with us via video during the luncheon by visiting the link below.
Seminars, Conferences & Retreats
The Women’s 2018 Spring Retreat was held on March 23-24th. We were greatly blessed as Betsy Harris taught on the topic “Growing in Godliness” during three sessions. We looked closely at how growing in godliness is effected by our devotion to Jesus and how we can grow in our devotion to Him. The ladies enjoyed the comfortable, relaxing, and peaceful surroundings of the hill country camp. There were paths to walk, a waterfall to enjoy, a zip line for the brave, paddle-boats and kayaking for the adventurers, a hot tub for soaking, and a water hole for swimming, loads of laughter, fun and fellowship.
