Habits of the Heart Women's Bible Study to Study Genesis
Join us this fall at Habits of the Heart where women from all across the community will come together to study God's Word from September to March.

Genesis is the second longest book in the Bible (after Jeremiah). That means there are a lot of characters in Genesis. But these four characters are the most important ones to know about:
God (Yahweh)—the creator of heaven and earth, including the humans Adam and Eve. God makes all things “very good,” but when both humans and divine beings rebel against God, the world slips back into chaos. The humans rebel against God, bringing a curse on the world and growing so violent that God destroys everyone but Noah and his family. God is still at work to bring the world back to “very good” status again—and chooses to begin this work through a man God names Abraham.
Abraham (formerly Abram)—a Mesopotamian whom God chooses as the patriarch of a special nation. Abraham journeys through the land of Canaan, which God promises to give to Abraham’s descendants. God makes a covenant (a special binding agreement) with Abraham—which is where Israel’s story as a nation truly begins.
Jacob/Israel—Abraham’s grandson. Jacob tricks his father and brother, finagling his way into receiving a special blessing. He has twelve sons, which the twelve tribes of Israel trace their lineage back to.
Joseph—Jacob’s favorite son, who has prophetic dreams of greatness. He is also able to interpret other people’s dreams. His brothers sell him into slavery, but through his God-given wisdom, he ascends to the position of second-in-command over all Egypt.
The book of Genesis is full of stories we know from Sunday school, like Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, and Jacob’s Ladder. But the story of Genesis is really all about setting the stage for the rest of the Pentateuch: it’s the long, long prologue to Israel’s beginnings as a nation. Specifically, it’s the story of the promises God made to humans—promises that God begins to carry out through the rest of the Bible.
In fact, if the main thrust of Genesis were summed up in one verse, it would be these words that God said to Abraham:
And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.
Our children's program (as well as nursery) is offered during the Wednesday morning session and has limited space. Please register early to ensure a spot for your child.
This Bible study, just for women, includes discussion groups, lectures, music and fellowship. The children’s program is an integral part of the ministry. While the women study, Habits of the Heart provides infant (2 months and older) and toddler care. Preschool classes are offered through kindergarten age which include Bible lessons, activities and music. Children’s classes are limited in size and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
We offer morning and evening sessions, both meeting on Wednesdays. The morning session meets from 9:15 to 11:15 am. The evening session meets from 7:00 to 8:15 pm. Please note: no childcare is provided for the evening session. The cost is $25 (checks payable to Zionsville Fellowship).
