Apply its powerful, relevant wisdom to needs and issues you are currently working through.
Acquire personal study skills and a thirst to return to the book on your own — so you can keep going.
Go deeper into its life-transforming truths.

PRECEPT UPON PRECEPT
Offered Tuesday Mornings, 9:15-11:30am
Homework Commitment: 1 hour per day, 5 days per week
Purpose: To teach principles of inductive Bible study and then guide each person through an inductive study of a book of the Bible. Class includes homework, lecture, group discussion, and listening to audio tapes. Every believer should be able to understand and apply God's Word correctly for themselves! God speaks to us through His Word, and we need to know it in order to know Him better.
Look for current and available Precepts studies on the Events Tab above.
"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." Psalms 1:1-3
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Apples of Gold Mentoring
September 5 – October 24, 2013
More information coming soon.
Women, are you interested in a MENTORING Relationship? Women are searching for community, camaraderie and companionship. They also want to grow and mature in their mothering skills as well as in their spiritual lives. Apples of Gold fills all of these needs. It’s not just a mentoring program; it’s not just a cooking class. It’s a nurturing, intergenerational connection that teaches women how to love their husbands, love their children, and practice submission, hospitality, kindness and purity.
The current session of Apples of Gold is full. Details regarding the Spring 2014 session will be coming in a few months. Thank you for your interest.
Heart 2 Heart
The December 7th H2H event has been cancelled.
Upcoming Precept Upon Precept
We are beginning a new study on the book of Revelation for the fall of 2013.
The kick-off is September 10. The sessions begin September 17.
The Goal of Women on Mission is to encourage women to become mission-minded by:
teaching about missions
praying for and giving to missions
performing mission activities
developing spiritually toward a missions lifestyle
participating in the work of the church and denomination
Women on Missions Circle groups meet monthly to promote missions study, pray for missions and missionaries, participate in mission projects and fellowship with a small “circle” of friends committed to service. All circles are open to women of all ages. Each meeting generally has a guest speaker, a project and prayer time, all lasting on the average, one and a half hours.
The Amazing Graces Circle
2nd Monday, 9:30am
Abigail Grace Circle
2nd Tuesday, 7:00pm
2nd Thursday, 10:30am
Childcare available upon request
Please email Beth Robertson, Women On Mission Director, for more information about the above circle groups at email@example.com.
Women on Mission Circle Groups would like to thank all of you that joined in to help us with our Build A Doll project for the orphans of Kenya Africa. We completed 197 boy and girl dolls to be handed out to those children that have nothing or very little to call their own. Thank you again and we look forward to working with you when we continue to make these sweet little dolls for Kenya and other mission areas.
If you have questions, contact: Beth Robertson, Women On Mission Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Toy Chest: The Toy Chest collects donations which are used to create a huge “toy store” open one day only to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary students (college 9 hours, graduate/master’s 6 hours, and doctoral/Ph.D. in full-time status) with children. The toys are sold for a minimum price, allowing these students to provide Christmas gifts to their children during their years of sacrifice and study. The proceeds are then donated to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Volunteers are needed for set-up and workers for the day of the Toy Chest.
Contact the church office on volunteering opportunities for this event (847-4477).
Operation Christmas Child
In conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child sends a message of hope to children in desperate situations through gift-filled shoeboxes and Christian literature. This program provides an opportunity for all ages to be involved in a simple, hands-on mission project that reaches out to suffering children while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas – Jesus Christ – God’s greatest gift. Bay Leaf Women on Mission supply the empty shoeboxes to the church family, who return them filled with gifts for the children. This project usually takes place over the summer months.
Bay Leaf Baptist Church offers Zumba
. Our Zumba class has finished meeting for the year and will pick back up again in early 2014.
