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.
