following our study online? welcome!

September 15th, 2010 | Posted by

Greetings to all of you who will be joining our study online. I know that many ladies are unable to attend our Virtue Bible study in person, and I am excited to offer an alternative for those who are restricted by time or distance.

As you may already know, this year’s theme is “Faith, Hope, and Love in Action,” based on James, 1 & 2 Peter, and 1 John.

Let me describe how this works for those of you who cannot be here in person:

Each Wednesday, beginning September 15, a new printable lesson will be posted on the Virtue site in the Bible Studies section. These lessons are designed to be completed a little each day, throughout the week.

You can choose from two different lesson formats for your study: deductive or inductive. The deductive lessons have a more guided structure—exploring a passage and asking straightforward questions about what a scripture says or means. Inductive lessons are designed to foster personal insight and discovery, as you observe, interpret, and apply the passage to everyday life. It is recommended that you choose one format and stick with it for the entire study. Take a look at our first lesson to help you decide: Deductive | Inductive

Following each lesson there will be a video teaching covering the scriptures and topics you have studied throughout the week. These video teachings will enhance and clarify the things you have been learning on your own and will be posted as soon as possible (usually 1-2 days after they happen).

Several of you have indicated an interest in forming an online study group. While we do not have “official” online groups (with leaders and designated group members) at this point, there will be a discussion section for each lesson to serve as an open forum for you to share ideas, ask questions, and encourage one another in your studies. We will keep the idea of registered online groups in mind for the future.

The study continues through late April; you can access the calendar here.

Again, I want to welcome you. I am praying that God will give you the time, diligence, and energy you need to complete these lessons and follow along with us throughout the year. At the end of the road waits a closer walk with our Lord Jesus and a deeper understanding of His Word!

God bless your studies,

    Thank you for offering this Cathe. I need the accountability of a study and cannot attend one at my church right now for a variety of reasons. What a blessing to be able to do this on-line!

    Thank you for offering this online! I don’t live nearby, but wanted to follow along with my own pacing! :)

  7. Amber says:

    What a blessing this is to have an online Bible study discussion! I have been so homesick, missing Harvest. I recently moved to Minnesota to finish my schooling and have not found a church so I have been watching online. Here I was thinking how I would be missing the women’s study this year and clicked on Virtue to read this. Thank you so much. This really made my day :)

    For some reason, I am not being able to download the study. I get the video, but not the study.

  11. Jenifer says:

    I’ve found it.

  12. Elizabeth says:

    I can’t find the speaker’s messages. I just got a job and would like to keep up with it on line and hear the teaching.
    Thank you
