UMC Women Celebrate in God’s Delight

God’s Delights is the newest addition to the Bridgeport United Methodist Church, offering women both of the church and the community a chance for Bible study and fellowship.

Based on the scripture “His delight is in her” from Isaiah 62:4, God’s Delights started last October, inspired by a “She Speaks” conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“While I was there, I felt a prompting of the Holy Spirit to come back and start a Bible study here,” Jill Steele said. “I felt like it was connected to the church, but I knew it was something that I needed to do.”

After speaking with the Rev. Dr. Ken Ramsey, God’s Delights was off to a great start.

“We put up a sign-up sheet, and the first Bible study we had 52 women sign up,” Steele said. “There was a need, and there was a hunger for that sharing and time together and learning the word together.”

Despite a large group, God’s Delights is a close group of women.

    In reading the post about God’s Delight I thought of the scriptures Psalm 37:5 and Proverbs 16:3 regarding how He will make our plans succeed. It is evident God is in this! When you study the photo that was taken of the beautiful ladies it is inspiring to see how women from young to mature in age are gathered “as one.” If I lived nearby I would come and join the study. Blessings for a great Fall seeking Him! For The King! Gay Landreth
