“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.

Winter/Spring Classes

Sundays, Jan. 12-April 5, 9:00-10:15AM

1 Corinthians//Leaders: Shereen Schwaninger & Marlys Burgett 
Are you looking for “your people”? Find a safe place to learn alongside other women each week at a Sunday table. Using videos by Jennie Allen and guided discussion through 1 Corinthians, we’ll see how the truth of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives.

Tuesdays, Jan. 14-April 14, 9:00-11:30AM

We gather each week from many places and with diverse experiences to lean in and draw strength from each other as women of God – not perfect, but pursuing Jesus together. Choose a study from the 3 electives below.

MUMs (Moms Uplifting Moms)
A place to gather with other mothers of preschoolers and be led by older moms who have “been there.” You’ll explore God’s Word using Grace-Based Discipline resources, learn life lessons from guest speakers, and engage in group discussion and prayer time.

A special place set aside for moms with school-aged kids (K-12). We pause from Mom Life and gather to pursue God in His Word and through prayer. Learn to live out your faith in practical ways in the midst of marriage, mothering, and friendship as we work through the Quest Study by Beth Moore.

Women in the Bible // Teacher: Kathy Bowman
Scripture is full of stories of wives, working women, leaders and mothers; each had a choice to follow God or not. What we learn from them can help us navigate our own walk of faith. Open your heart as we explore life lessons from 9 women of the Bible.

Wednesdays, Jan. 15 – April 8, 6:30-8:00PM

The Gospel of Ruth // Teacher: Tara Free 
Using Sandra Richter’s video series on Ruth, we’ll see the promise of redemption inspire Ruth to love God enough to break some rules. Step into the rich history of God’s Word, hear from our own leaders, and learn to engage in prayer as you gather with other women each week.

Awaken Your Heart

By Marcia Bohlke Shereen asked me to share one or two ways God has awakened my faith in the past few years. Without getting into the details, I will share that in the past few years my heart has known trauma, betrayal, abuse, grief and loss. I tell you that because it is perhaps easy …
