“May the God of peace … equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ” Hebrews 13:20-21

Welcome to the web page of Equip Her, Bible Studies for a Woman’s Life. Whether you join us in person for one of our weekly classes or are a part of our online community, we’re glad you are here. Our mission is to equip women to become complete in Christ through training in the Word, worship and prayer.

We hope you will take some time to sit back, put your feet up, grab your beverage of choice and scroll through the stories and encouragement this site has to offer.

About Us

As you join us here, you become part of a tradition of prayer and Bible study for women at Lincoln Berean Church. Knowing that God has given each woman influence and purpose, our passion in Equip Her is to help her take one step further on her faith journey. We aim to learn life lessons from the Bible as we connect, engage and inspire one another.

What began as a small group has grown to hundreds of women, encompasses a variety of ages and backgrounds, and offers morning sessions on Sundays and Tuesdays and an evening session on Wednesdays.

Throughout our growth process, three essentials have remained – time to worship God together, study God’s Word, and engage in small group prayer. Using scripture as a guide during prayer time has become a significant focus in our groups.
