Women's Groups & Bible Studies
The Nest is a ministry open to all mothers with a child under first grade including those women expecting their first child! The Nest provides a caring and accepting atmosphere. Moms have the opportunity to share concerns, responsibilities of family and community. While not a Bible study, The Nest offers instruction relating to womanhood, marriage, child-rearing and family relationships using Biblical principles. The Nestlings program offers age appropriate structured classrooms and is open to children from infants of five months to kindergartners.
Whether you are a mom of young children or expecting your first, you can find community at The Nest. We are a group of women who are Nurturing, Encouraging and Sharing Together. We would love to have you join us. We can't wait to meet you!

The family of Centreville Baptist Church is filled with current and former military personnel. We believe so deeply in supporting those who have given so much to defend our country that our women's ministry determined to develop a connection that supports and encourages the wives of Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard and Retired Service Members, as well as women who are serving or have served our nation.
The challenges of the military life are significant and unique and this group offers a safe, understanding, faith-filled atmosphere of encouragement and support. An immediate sense of friendship and camaraderie can be discovered as we come together for brunch, meetings and various social activities throughout the year (even the summer). Guest speakers, activities, and devotionals are geared toward equipping and strengthening the military wife as she serves and sacrifices alongside her husband.

Topic: Finding God Faithful, by Kelly Minter
Trace the path of Joseph's life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God's sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God's plan when life does not make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.

PETER: Fisherman, Disciple, Apostle
Of all the characters in the Bible, it is with Peter with whom most of us can identify in one way or another. He is human. In many ways his story mirrors our own story. How often are we unsure of ourselves? How often are we prone to shame and guilt? How often do we speak before we think? How often are we stubborn or hot-tempered? How often are we over-enthusiastic or impulsive in our behavior?
Just as Jesus never saw Peter as hopeless, He doesn't see us as hopeless either. Just as Jesus saw potential in Peter, He sees it in us. As we study Peter's transformation, we will see how his life reflects our own as the Holy Spirit works in us as He did in Peter.
Text: Your Bible
Cost: $5 for supplies
This little book of Jude is like working a gold mine because of all the rich nuggets to be found. His purpose in writing is to give assurance to believers in times of apostasy. Like Peter, he is writing to believers in difficult times. And, like Peter, he warns of false teachers within the church.
For more information contact Denise Cadle. A quality children’s program is offered for ages 3 months through kindergarten. Please pre-register your children.

Topic: All Things New, by Kelly Minter, a video study
Eight sessions lead us through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come.
